    You know what I hate?..................I hate cell phones. They make us even lazier than we were before their existence. Prior to the cell, phone users memorized phone numbers that they called frequently. Sure, there were Rolodexes for those with lots of contacts (like business folks), and pocket-size address books for those of us with a more limited mental capacity to recall numbers accurately, but even I was able to retain a few of my most frequently called numbers. There was some small degree of mental exercise involved, albeit damn small. Cell phones don't offer even that tiny modicum of mental exercise. Given that, I fail to see to see how "great" the metric system is since, similarly, it encourages mathematical laziness. Look at the right side of the chart, so generously provided by madman, with all of them ones and zeros! I feel mentally diminished just thinking about it! HA!

    N.B. - For those too young to know address books, there's a page from an old one of mine more than 40 years old. I feel okay sharing OngKar's old phone number since I know he is no longer at it. The O.C.F. (Oregon Country Fair) is a juried arts and crafts fair that happens annually, the weekend after the 4th of July. The first Fair was 1969. If you happen to be in the Eugene, Oregon area at the right time, I encourage you to go. It is an experience you will likely never forget, and that's in a good way! The last photo is of me and my son in 2015 at the Fair sitting just beyond the Watergate. It's where the Fair ends for the public. I was working on his security crew.

      here are some numbers for you... HA! Cheers!
      99,99mm
      = inches decimal 3,9366141732
      = inches fraktions 3 ¹⁵/₁₆
      Calculation
      99,99mm / 25,4
      = 3,9366141732in

    I hate watching the badass storms on the ocean, barely missing my community. Rain for San Diego, sure. But not all of San Diego.
    Bastards! I would wash my car in a thong for rain. If I had a car.

      There's the rain!!! tee-hee...

    No. Thanks for asking. Check the punctuation. My car would be wearing a thong. Me in a thong makes me gag a little.
    When I taught, I would tell them I would buy the class a scoop of ice-cream if something happened. Well, I did not say I would buy a scoop of ice-cream for everyone in the class. One class, one scoop.

              Guy's lie about size. Maybe it's 18", maybe it's 19.5". If that water is cold, you know there's shrinkage.

                Doesn't that have something to do with Napoleon being seen as short? French inches vs real inches?

                But seriously, Dirk Diggler. 18" is a lie you can't pull off.

              You know what I hate...................... Drunk boaters. What do y'all think of my new yard ornament? Almost made it into the pond. I think alcohol and autopilot had something to do with this. Click image for larger version

                The real money might be in storage or harboring fees. People with boats, man. They'll pay stupid money for some ol' boat. Sheesh!
                Smug, too. "Ooh, lookit me. I did something with my life and am in a position to own a boat because my house, which is on the water, has a boat dock! Nothing about this precludes me from having a blown-out car or jacked up truck. I just don't, because I'm not a douche."
                If a boat does that in San Diego it is either full of drugs or surrounded by footprints of the human cargo running in all directions. Have you checked it for either?

              According to maritime law I can claim it as salvage. Going to put it up on air bnb.

                  I am rubbing salt in my own wounds, Morman. I'm not a big boat person, what with scaring fish away with my constant seasick vomiting. Your fishing is abundant without needing to boat. Perhaps enough so I would be able to catch dinner.
                  By most good folks' standards, you have a bucolic place. Everything about it is peaceful. If you had to, you are right connected to the Atlantic and could make for the 12 mile limit for international waters. Only iff.
                  Please allow my self abuse.

                  Of course I played. I got 5 out of 6. No shit!

                Well bromaster if you ever find yourself in my part of merica I would be overjoyed to take you out for a non vomiting pleasure cruise. Please seriously get some Dramamine. Can't be having that in my boat.

                  That would officially get me to the east coast. I have friends in states that would get me to Kentucky.

                Looks to me like you got yourself a new boat.
