  1. Trivia time: the first recorded use of that song was in an adult film. Do not use flour on a fire. Flour dust can easily become explosive. Explosions were a common way of millers and bakers dying back in the day.
  2. Yeah, no Aussie I know drinks Foster's. But I think that's pretty universal... people keep the good (at least to their own tastes) stuff for themselves and export the stuff they wouldn't touch with a barge pole.
  3. At least you got Scott. He didn't even come to Australia when I went to see them.
  4. I haven't noticed any clouding on my translucent green resin after switching from white or grey. But completely clear would probably be more noticeable if anything were to happen.
  5. It means the stench of tobacco. I came across it in a list of obscure words and like it so much that I use it
  6. Kakamora? Tempting... When we first saw Moana SWMBO suggested they'd make a cute Blood Bowl team.
  7. Thanks for letting me know about him. I've been thinking about getting some Pratchett minis for a while, thinking of making a Blood Bowl team or two. His minis have variants to be used for Blood Bowl. I might have to buy some of his older sets (and it's cheaper to become a Patreon and buy one than to just buy one straight from MMF).
  8. My best guess is that it was on the back of a flat bed truck which misjudged the height of the bridge.
  9. The title is wrong. USAans are the only ones who think the word "series" refers to baseball, even if they try to claim that is a world series.
  10. The same small caps as Death himself.
  11. That's Death of Dalmatians. 😁
  12. Is that you , Death of Rats? GNU Sir Terry Pratchett GEM Nah, he squeaks in all caps.
  13. Assuming the bases are solid and not just the edges like your commercial blank bases it should be easy. I would be inclined to do it in Slic3r: rotate the base, cut, repeat. Or if you don't care about the sides being angled you don't need to do so much rotating.
  14. Back when I used to play there were four releases per year. Looking up the release schedule for this year, it seems there will be at least ten. 🙄
  15. I've been gradually building up my collection over several years. There's a second hand book fair run a few times a year for charity which I tend to go to and I'll typically Scott the sci-fi/fantasy section (for other stuff as well). I usually find one or two.
  16. Spell check is my worst enema. Alan Mathison Turing OBE FRS (/ˈtjʊərɪŋ/; 23 June 1912 – 7 June 1954) was an English mathematician, computer scientist, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, and theoretical biologist. Turing was highly influential in the development of theoretical computer science, providing a formalisation of the concepts of algorithm and computation with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model of a general-purpose computer. Bots and mathematicians...
  17. Well sure, but that's because complaining would earn you a cuff round the ears, right?
  18. Those are what was used in the Berlin Wall, right?
  19. There are more cities besides NYC that do that. Take a look at addresses in Salt Lake City some time, for example. And I've got tons of sites scattered throughout the US and Canada that have addresses like "106th and 6th." Here in Winterset the numbered streets run north south, and as such don't intersect, but you do have to be aware that Streets are east of town square, and Avenues are West of Town Square. So if someone wants to meet you at 2nd and Jefferson, they could mean the library on 2nd Street, or the Post Office on 2nd Avenue - 3 blocks apart. It can get worse if the streets aren't named exclusively numerically and not in a strict grid pattern. I've been told that in the town I was born (but before I was born, mumble mumble years ago) a house burnt down after a fire was reported at the corner of Seventh Road and Eighth Avenue but the fire brigade went to the corner of Seventh Avenue and Eighth Road which was several kilometres away (or the other way around).
  20. Society of Unimaginative Men (S.U.M.) food log: Pork steaks with pepper sauce (aka Peppa Pig) and pumpkin. Also some eggplant but that wasn't on my plate.
  21. You won't get the same quality prints. It has the same number of pixels covering approximately twice the area, so the details won't be as crisp. That being said, you'd probably have to look closely to notice the difference.
