  1. Okaaay, it’s still a great way to start any day!
  2. Oh I know what it is, I’m just amused by the lack of the photographer’s effort in at least simulating a darker environment.
  3. About 20 years ago our city water utility did just that - bottled the water they sent to our taps and marketed it. Once that was exposed, the business folded immediately. Not that it was a big secret - just stupid.
  4. “Explaining a joke is like dissecting a frog. You understand it better but the frog dies in the process.” - E.B. White
  5. Is Vegemite similar to Spam - where the last production run was maybe 1962 - and they’re still trying to draw down the supply?
  6. Nothing "Free" there. That there is high maintenance and really expensive!
  7. Looks like a toggle link rifle with the side plates off.
  8. I like the stuff. I worked at a pizzeria back in college days and made a lot of ‘em.
  9. When I was in Boy Scouts where learning knot tying was important, my Navy vet dad did that from memory. He was just killing time while we fumbled with sheet bends. I had never seen rope spliced like that before. Not sure that I have since. Also not sure I could do it with a YouTube video!
  10. The caption is bogus, but it’s a fun meme anyway. found this on the net: “That's a German Shepherd wearing a vest with his name written on it.....and the bird is a seagull. It is painting of Comb Ridge in Utah. Not the inspiration, Chuck Jones came right out and said it was not.”
  11. When did the Brits stop using d to denote pence/pennies? These days 6 pence is abbreviated to 6p.
  12. Interesting. I thought they used to use the same nomenclature as the Brits - p for pennies/pence.
  13. Boofhead. I learn something new every day! Thanks Buckshot, I'm gonna steal that one. I love words that sound like what hey mean.
  14. So how did they load it for the next shot?
  15. Not knowing, I had to look up swagman and came up with this about waltzing Matilda. I learn something new every day! Swagmen were particularly common in Australia during times of economic uncertainty, such as the 1890s and the Great Depression of the 1930s. Many unemployed men travelled the rural areas of Australia on foot, their few meagre possessions rolled up and carried in their swag. Their swag was frequently referred to as "Matilda", hence Waltzing Matilda refers to walking with their swag.
