Protopterus is a small carnivourous dinosaur aint it? hope you have the necessary dinosaur keeping licence Kaptin.

The old toast problem has reared its head again this morning, one finds oneself devoid of white bread.
One should really try and organise oneself better, one shall start making lists ,one has resisted the keeping of lists all ones life but alas, time and approaching senility make the list keeping habit more and more necessary.
It strikes one that most prooner are probably list keepers, so it looks like one is going to have to comform at last,which is another thing one has resisted all ones life.


Ones old uncle Hugh would have benifited from the keeping of lists, one sent him out for a bag of sugar once, he returned with two bars of toilet soap(buy one get one free) a bag containing three tomatoes, a bubble pack containing two brass hinges, a packet of pan scrubbers, six PP9 batteries, but alas no sugar.

Cool

Just took a pee.
Interesting thing pee-ing, isn't it!
Liquid goes in at minus zero, and a blackish-brownish colour - color, for the Yanks - (well in my case, Bourbon, Cola an' ice)..then after a few minutes the body has recycled it to a hotter than average body temp, and clear to yellowish (I stuck my hand in the "flow" ..that's a medically recognised term, you know) for the sake of this [i]Jet Blast[]/i] Draper-induced topic!!

Wonder what the psi at the outlet is? And why is it hotter? Maybe somefink to do wif friction?

No, Mr D - it's a rungfish....well sort of a dinosaur I guess, they've been around for about 300 million years.
Wonder how it tastes? "Aged meat"!!

Now i dunno which smiley to pick! Far Kit

I just throw my keyboard away and break out a new one when I can no longer see the letters due to coffee stains ciggy ash and the like.
I only once ever atempted to fix a faulty keyboard, I was still picking little springs and twidley bits up six months later.


PS. one prefers keyboards that make good honest clicky sound, not these new fangled stealth silent ones.

If you care to read back thru the 87 pages of this thread CT, you will find the carrot phenomenon has been asked about and explained about half a dozen times already.

Mr D, if you like a clicky keyboard, do you remember that piece of
music made totally of typewriter clicks? It was composed about 1950. I have tried to find it, but it defeats my research skills. If you have influence with, say, ORAC, I am sure it woujd be a mere bagatelle to him.

In the meantime:

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain,
Telling me just what a fool I've been.
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain,
And let me be alone again.

Thanks a heap Mr Davvar, thats another tune that is going to be circling in me head for the next 24 hours, indeed I remember it well, the title is on the tip of me tongue but I just cannot bring it forth, Keyboard Serenade or Cantanta, something like that?
They don't write em like that anymore, I blame all these new skiffle groups and Teddy Boys hanging about the street corners.

Important Keyboard Information

Davaar is thinking of LeRoy Anderson's composition, recorded by the Boston Pops. IIRC, Anderson played first violin in the Boston Symphony / Pops.

Once upon a time a female PhD who worked for me complained that her office-mate typed too loudly on his PC keyboard! It was an XT and they were pretty loud, but I'd guess the real problem was lack of a private office.

Mr D: I saw a Ted, early 1950s, shoap in Glasgow, trying on new drainpipes. They looked as though they were painted on. He stamped his foot under the critical eye of his mates and asked the salesman: "Wid ye no' say thur flappin' aboot?".

I hate to ask this, but could his jaiket possibly have been of the style known as, ummm, "drape"?

The whole ensemble was a la mode: "Zoot suit".

Ah, Mr D, the blue suede shoes.

The UK was represented at a conference by "My name is Lord ..........................". Lord ..............'s group had prepared a draft in which "responsible" and "liable" were used interchangeably. I suggested this was a doubtful usage. Hoity-toity, he said in effect. Well, I suggested, I (I was tempted to say "you") could be responsible for the birth of a child, but not necessarily liable for his maintenance. He ignored that.

He wore blue suede shoes. He really did. I had an urge to step on them, regardless of Elvis. He did not like me, nor the delegate from France. The delegate from France, with whom my entente was very cordiale, pretty much frothed at the mouth every time "My name is Lord ....." opened his.

None of it mattered all that much, because the delegate from the USA would say: "Yeah. An' here's whut we're gonna do". God Bless America.

You had the consolation in those days of knowing, if you were beaten up in the street, the beater upperer at least had taken a pride no matter how perverted in his appearence.
I drove past the Crematorium the other day and a group of young men where getting out one of the Limo's, ,they were dressed in dark trousers white shirts (sans tie) loose and not tucked into their kecks, and no jackets.
Well , at least they weren't wearing trainers.
What the **** is the world coming to.

Drapes - today it was "The Happening" by the Supremes. Yesterday it was "Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye" by Steam. Any clues yet on where this is coming from? I moved to a secret location today to try and avoid the signals, with no luck. However, I have a cunning plan for tomorrow...

Tiz the octopus folk from Beta Reticulum, they are beaming them into your head from space, make sure your tinfoil cap is well seated on to your head tonight.
It is said that standing on one leg holding a small turnip in the left hand offers similar protection , but one finds it difficult to sleep in this posture.

the old ways are always the best.
