    I have a soft spot for Stegosaurus ungulatus and its super-size thagomizer.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Am I to understand that the local school can't afford to stay open during regular hours for silly things like classes, but can still somehow pay for concussion-egg sportsball fields, equipment, and personnel? If so, my brain damage may not be the bar to employment that I had previously assumed.

    Clavamox is a veterinary oral antibiotic. Since it is administered by mouth to small carnivores, it is chicken flavored so they'll simply eat it. Actually, no. It is banana flavored, so that any administration of the stuff involves a headlock and sticking a syringe in the toothy end at twelve hour intervals for a week. Even if you plan on winning that fight, it seems like a lot of entirely unnecessary stress on the patient. I'm not sure why this state of affairs persists, because the kind of people that do drug formulations don't particularly strike me as being the types that are proud of having an IQ less than their belt size.

    @Paradoxical Mouse - this sounds like a "bigger hammer" problem https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diagonal_pliers For cutting all the way through a sprue, hobby nippers are just too light - they're meant to snip away the delicate connecting points. There is something to be said for cutting well above the connecting point before severing it from the part - this initial cut removes any tension on the sprue and reduces the chance of the part shattering. Sprues will develop tension when they shrink slightly during the curing process. If the resin is so tough that you can't cut through the pin vents and sprue connectors, you need better (i.e. more expensive) tools made of higher grade steel, something to burn through it (with associated safety gear), or an itty-bitty saw of the Dremel or jeweler's variety (cut underwater, resin dust is nasty). I personally won't work with resin any more because of its flatbread tendencies.

    Are you looking for something resembling the Barlowe's guide entry?

    I once got into the chamber and discovered that my mask Did. Not. Work. I felt that inside the chamber was a sub-optimal place to raise this particular subject, as the Warrant Officer would then do an idiot check. For civilians playing along, this means that he would do the equivalent of the Tech Support thing where they go through the troubleshooting steps starting with "is it plugged in?". While snorting tear gas (which is actually more of a powder - imagine a small room where a can of ground black pepper has recently exploded). Option 2 was to keep quiet, let the useless thing drain when we took them off to put them back on (It's the Marine Corps, just go with it), and leave the room in the shortest time available. I then went to my buddy in the NBC shop who was favorably disposed towards me because of that time I saved him from drowning in the shower (yes, really). Turns out that when my canister swapped sides (I shoot left -handed) the old valve didn't get swapped, so I was breathing in through a naked filter intake and exhaling clean air through my filter. Two minute fix if you know what's wrong. So I guess the moral is don't let the plumbing facilities murderize your comrades. Or something. Dummies. You smoke through the drinking tube. Carry a spare canteen cap.

    I made Scotch Eggs a couple weeks ago with similar results. @Evilhalfling - I've got two elderly girls on subcutaneous fluids for the rest of their lives (which could still be several years) for kidney issues. It's a lot less traumatic than I thought it would be. It doesn't seem to bother them much, either. On Jell-o with weird stuff in it: Spoilered because some snarks are boojums.
