    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    A couple of clothes pins will solve the gappy curtain problm. Personally I use S-Beiners bcause I carry those for securing luggage to baggage trollies. I also carry a Roaming Gnome. One of the Travelocity Roaming Gnomes who serves as my eyeglasses keeper when they aren't on my face, both at home and when traveling. Since the gnome has started acting as my eyeglass valet I haven't had any problems fumbling for eyeglasses that aren't ~exactly~ where I would put them down. I just fold my glasses and place them over his pointy cap, hinge up and he keeps them safe and secure until I wake up. Serves the same duty both at home and on the road. GEM

    Unless the shipping container has suffered physical damage it should be vermin proof. Since there are reports of stink bugs I'm going to make a guess that the container has suffered some sort of puncture damage. The normal specification for seaworthy containers is at a minimum, wind and water tight. GEM

    Seems to me that such an action would tend to discourage any colonization on the part of the stinkbugs. The effect on Bones in confined contact for extended periods of time has yet to be observed and reported. GEM

    Wally World has the RCA Galileo series tablet, which will do everything a Fire will and much more as it's a full Android Tablet with a detachable keyboard, for about the same amount. The 11" model runs about $15-20 more. Check into their online offerings and it will quickly come up as it's good value for the money. I'm on my second one because the first one got sat on and the screen has a crack down the middle. Still works but the touchscreen functionality is iffy. GEM

    PaizoCon 2019!

    I'm particularly interested in that because the Pathfinder Colors are part of the VIP Extras for ReaperCon. GEM

    Before I was permanently sidelined by a Drunk Driver I was called for jury duty for a Drunk Driver case. As soon as the defense attorney found out I was a long haul driver with previous experience dealing with drunk and impared drivers I was thanked and asked to leave. GEM

    Tell me about it. I would surmise from the general tone and level of conversations on this forum, this sub-forum in particular, that the average/mid-range of intellect is somewhat to the right of the standard bell curve for human intelligence. GEM Twinkle Twinkle

    You are trained to deal in facts and logical thinking. You aren't swayed by emotional arguments. Trial attorneys don't like people that they can't push buttons and manipulate the emotions to sway them to their arguments. People like you make them have to actually work hard. Once somebody like you gets into the jury room you become a leader as soon as you point out the first error in logic or appeal to emotion. Trial Lawyers, either prosecutors or defense attorneys don't like that. GEM

    Getting To Know You — May 2019

    Coming from the same skeptical mindset and the use of x-acto knives for decades I hesitantly ordered one. Now I keep mentally asking "why didn't somebody tell me about these sometime last century?". And the tool looks usable by either hand with equal facility. GEM

    Yes. You will find very few doors equipped with letter slots in the USA. Mail is either delivered to a curbside receptacle of US Postal Service specification or a Gang Box where there are a series of pigeon holes and parcel lockers, with each address having a key for the designated pigeon hole for their mail. In the more rural areas there is a designated delivery point for mail and all the local residents set up their own mailbox in a rough line as close to the designated point as practical. GEM
