I got nothin'...

Have a bird picture while I cogitate on something to write...

Zoom lens makes Bama the parrot curious.
My buttocks are still sore from the spectacular fall on the basement steps over a week ago: Trying to run down rubber clad stairs with wet boot soles is not advised. Five years of transiting the stairs accident-free at Roseholme and then twice in one week. Associated spectacular dinner-plate-sized hematoma is still fading.

Despite being barely a hundred miles from turning 200k miles, the Subie does not appear to be using oil at all, and the coolant level has remained constant, which is reassuring. There's the occasional faint whiff of something that smells of burning friction surface, which is not.

Also, the screen on my just-over-a-year-old lo-bujit HP commodity laptop is occasionally transited by a horizontal line or five. Very infrequently. Every few days. Just enough to annoy me. I've gotten religion about backing up, I can tell you.

Bleh.

I'm going to look around for some motivation here... BRB.

My mother used to tell me that falling down is a stress disease.

Now when I fall down I just don't tell her about it.

Looks like defense distributed has, or is very close to finalizing plans for the 'Liberator' printed pistol.
Congressmans response? We'll ban it.

Does. Not. Get. It.

We don't have a drinking problem in Broad Ripple.

We drink, we get drunk, we fall down.

No problem.

Tam,

Check the power steering pump for small leaks between the pump itself and the reservoir holding the fluid. On my 98 Outback, the o-ring seal there has deteriorated to the point that it slowly dribbles PS fluid onto the top of the engine, where it puddles in a convenient dip just behind the pump itself. Every so often, some of that will overflow and fall onto the exhaust manifold. Smelly, but not particularly harmful.

Now imagine being a gun control advocate and having the butthurt FOREVER.

Now you understand them better, right?

So you gave everyone the bird and vaguely asked them to kiss your ass?

Well played! :)
