    She’s not allowed to talk about it.

    I actually like pineapple Crush, not enough to want to drink it all the time, but it is pretty good as a once in a while beverage.

    Jonboj, not a great name, but pronounceable at least.

    No bacon? Who are you and what have you done with Chaoswolf? I had a steak with garlic and cayenne pepper; with a splash of teriyaki sauce added at the end.

    And cardboard is one of their favorite foods and bedding places.

    Hey, I resemble that remark... it is is really surprising how many John/Jonathan Smith's there are in the world; I even worked with another that had the same middle initial that wasn't even remotely related to me. Then there are the celebrities that have the same name, there was an Olympic runner in the mid 20th century who shared my (first and last) name and the rapper Lil' John is also a Jonathan Smith.

    In most areas you already eat things that have eaten things grown in human waste, the sludge from wastewater treatment plants is generally sold to fertilizer companies and the liquid components in many rural sewage treatment plants is sprayed onto fields of timothy or alfalpha that is cut and rolled into feed hay. Most of the sludge ends up fertilizing dent corn that is then used as livestock feed.

    We have dryers on both compressors and an automated dump valve, dumps all excess pressure when power is cut and dumps some pressure several times throughout the day to make sure that the rising temperature doesn't cause over pressure issues. Glue pots take about an hour to hour to warm up to temp, they get turned on as I am walking past to clock in after turning on the lights (and now compressors and power to other systems).

    Chili's and Ruby Tuesday also have them. They have started to appear at some Pizza Hut locations in my area as well, but mostly the newly built/remodeled ones. It turned out that it was just a new policy that management wants them turned off overnight so that the machines aren't left on, they also are having us cut power to the air compressors because they will run all night and burn out the motor in the current temperature fluctuations from day to night.

    I feel you there, got to work this morning and the power to the bandsaws and glue pots has been switched off. No clue when it will be turned back on as it is maintenance that has it off, most likely to re-wire the circuits to bring them up to code for an industrial environment, then we may actually get them wired at 240V rather than 110-120V. That would be nice as it would prevent the motor from trying to bog down when cutting the standard 3 filters at once for our special sized filters that we keep in stock rather than cutting when needed.

    How Many Books is a Lot?

    My thoughts on books is that if your bookshelves haven't collapsed into a singularity, you don't have enough. If the Library of Congress and Vatican aren't envious of your collection, you don't have enough. That said aid I have always taken my greatest joy from the "pocket worlds" contained within books. This is why I found the Myst series of games so engrossing, they were literally creating portals to other worlds through their writing and able to travel there bodily.

    Just saw on the news that there has been a shooting on campus of UNC-Charlotte with 3 injured. One suspect in custody. My step-nephew had just arrived from UNC-Greensboro to pitch in the (now cancelled) baseball game between the two colleges as the situation started. I am glad that they were rushed into the feild house immediately and are safe. There have been (unsubstantiated) reports of a second shooting at the football stadium beside the baseball feild, where there is a concert supposed to occur tonight. ETA: Update from my step-brother (who apparently travelled with the team). Two killed, four injured (two critically); still very active police presence.

    Room for the Hobby

    In my case it is more important to have an electrostatic duster to clean the cat hair off of the things that you haven't finished painting yet so you can decide which ones you need to work on. The dog doesn't come into my room, mostly because that is where the cat food is and the dog doesn't need cat food.

    Isn't that what The Amazing Race is?
