teflon spray for snowblowers
Our snowblower repair dude suggests spraying some cooking spray onto the auger and impeller to keep the snow from sticking to the metal blades. I suspect teflon spray would work, too.
why is literature written in present tense
Some literature is written in present tense. Properly used, it’s an effective way to get the reader pulled into the story, and convey a sense of immediacy. Badly used, it reads horribly like a transcribed subway conversation.
better to buy alphasmart neo without battery
They sell the Neo with a rechargeable battery pack, but I’ve never really seen the need for it. I mean, the thing lasts for the better part of a year on three AA batteries, so why bother with a charger you have to pull out of the desk drawer maybe once per season?
"company laptop" fired porn downloading
Your company gave you a computer to do, you know, business-related work on it. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that unless you work in the adult entertainment industry, looking at porn isn’t strictly a business-related activity.
ibm clicky model m usb cable
The Model M works with a PS/2-to-USB converter, but not all of those work equally well. I’ve had good luck with the model sold by Radio Shack, catalog number 26-723.
munchkin wrangler piccadilly
Piccadilly notebooks make up 75% of my notebook stash. Moleskine clones at less than half the price + conveniently stocked by my local Borders = a shelf full of them in my office.
ship caudill came to america on
That would be the RMS Copycat. The Caudills then settled in the region of Plagiary, which is somewhere in Appalachia.
j-frame vs lcp for pocket carry
As an LCP owner who has carried many a J-frame in the past, I’ll say that the LCP makes a much better pocket gun. It’s considerably flatter, lighter than even the Scandium mule kicker models, and less obvious in the pocket because it lacks the fat cylinder in its middle. I loves me some J-frames, but for that particular job, the LCP is as good as it gets.
do russians shovel their driveways
Russians don’t have driveways, silly. It’s a well-known fact that in the Soviet Union days, people had to wait 20 years for their Ladas and Dacias, so when they finally got to take delivery, they didn’t risk exposing the car to weather. Instead, they’d just put their cars under their arms and carry them into their houses at night.
swords don’t run out of ammo
And guns don’t require a trenchcoat for concealment. Also, the guy with the gun has a reach advantage over the guy with the sword, and will look less like a fucking loon in court. Seriously: sword and knife are lethal force implements, and while carrying one may be less restricted than carrying a gun in some places, pulling one on a person is just like pulling out a gun. You go all Highlander on some fool, said fool would be justified to draw a gun in self-defense.
Is Monday Morning! Is Search Term Safari! With my recurring obligation out of the way, I shall now tackle my second cup of Go Juice, and write me some fiction…
