  2. I always get a little nervous when a poat here discusses the clap.

  3. Feh. Clapping requires two hands. I can get em off just using one.

  4. Might’ve been handy in the late seventies, early eighties. Now………?

  5. I get off using just one hand, too!

  6. I get off using just one hand, too!

    Young whippersnappers always coming around boasting about their mad skillz. I think I’ll go have an Ensure and some wheat germ.

  7. Welcome to the new poat. Dead as the old poat.

  8. What’s the sound of one hand clapping?

  9. **fap**fap**fap**

  10. I use my teeth…

  11. I use my teeth…

    Fuck.

    You.

  12. What’s the sound of one hand clapping?

    **fap**fap**fap**

    Winnah!!

  13. Updated with a scene from one of the top 5 greatest movies evar … it’s a shame that:

    1) I couldn’t find the scene on YouTube and
    B) Hulu makes it damned near impossible to watch

  14. Hulu went from being the neatest thing on the web to a terrific pain in the ass.

  15. I tend to get my online videos elsewhere…

    **goes to youporn.com**

  16. They didn’t have that scene there, either. Bastards!

  17. You homo.

  18. Andy, shouldn’t you be outside supervising your wife shovelling snow?

  19. Dave, have you seen were your beloved MC-130s are being armed and operated in A-stan?

  20. Heh. The danger of breaking a nail’s too high.

    I took care of it earlier.

  21. I just watched two episodes of Firefly on Netflix streaming.

  22. MCPO, I’ve got the entire oeuvre saved to hard drive, to include the special features, AND the movie.

  23. suppeth unto all you all

  24. Also, since I’m all caught up with One Tree Hill, I’m watching Veronica Mars.

    Very, very few people as cute as Kristen Bell.

    Surprisingly, many of that handful of women cuter than her comment here…

  25. Brad – I would do that, but my hard drive ain’t that hard. IYKWIMAITYD

  26. May I suggest you spend the $50 and get a portable external hard drive with half a terrabyte?

    You can fit dozens of entire series on it.

    YIKES!

  29. >> Dave, have you seen were your beloved MC-130s are being armed and operated in A-stan?

    The Combat Talon II is still the SOC workhorse.

  30. 1. Eddie, I’m stealing that St. Elmo’s fire…

    2. Dave, last time I saw news footage of a Combat Talon was when they dropped Rangers into A-stan in Oct. 2001….

  31. Airframe’s as old as me. If any of my code is still runnin in it, that’d be fitting.

    But I would be surprised if it were.

  32. *carefully braids Anger Management Puppet’s red yarn hair*
    *turns it around*

    Oh! You look so pretty. Like Pippi Longstocking! You cutie, you.

    *long pause*

    You know, I can’t help but notice, you never return my compliments.

  33. Well, I just checked again, the armed MC-130s are “Whiskeys” which are “Talon Lite” so they aren’t the ones you worked on. Still, it’s L-3, so you probably know some of the folks doing some of the work…

  34. Laura, few things are as lovely as the glisten of moonlight on the hump as you dig a hobo’s shallow grave.

  35. Thank you, xbradtc. You are so very kind.

  36. No, not really.

    I just don’t wanna have you push me into Long Island Sound when we meet.

  37. she didn’t push me.

    L-3 bought E-Systems from Raytheon, E-Sys was the company I worked for when I wrote software to make an aeleron go “up”. Or down.

    Shit, I still get that wrong.. actuator goes up, flap goes down.

  38. Ailerons are “bi-directional”

    Spoilers are uni-directional.

    C-130s DO have ailerons. Most jets have only spoilers.

  39. up.. down.. up.. FUCK.. ok, down. Down..

    it that a “true” or a “false”?

    fuckin made up assembler bullshit…

  40. >> she didn’t push me.

    Hahahahaha. Dave got pushed down by a girl!

  41. >> Dave got pushed down by a girl!

    Yeah. Throw me in that briar patch. Oh ow. Ouch. Darn.

  42. Which way does a UHT go?

  43. **opens saved files**

    **laughs and laughs and laughs at “Dave in Water”**

  44. Ted, I was noodling through some of Dad’s stuff the other day.

    In addition to US-2s and C-1s, he has some hours in the old UF-1 and UF-2.

  45. Just watched the Rand Paul/Letterman vid from the sidebar at Ace’s Letterman asked so many frontloaded with liberal bias questions that it amazes me that CBS hasn’t reassigned him to be their evening news anchor. Cocksucker also had the chutzpaw to refer to himself as “middle class”. What a fucking douche. Glad I quit watching him once I became employed in the real world and had to go to bed at a decent hour.

  46. busted garage door lift spring.

    I saw one of these get away from a dude one time and almost take his ear off.

    *places the call

  47. Dave – Those things can kill ya. We had a neighbor end up in intensive care for a week when one let go.

  48. A man’s got to know his limitations.

    I know mine when it comes to garage door springs. No worries.

  49. Yep. That’s definitely one you want on somebody else’s health insurance plan.

    Saws and nailers got nothin’ on a big-ass coil spring.

  50. After seeing what one did to a 2×4, I’m perfectly willing to leave this job to the pros.

  52. Heh. JackStraw and I are in this photo in an article about the Mark Steyn thing last week: http://stoughton.patch.com/articles/special-edition-steyn-presents-scary-world-scenario#photo-5046249

    Need to work on my evasion skills.

    Laura, suggestions?

  53. fuckin a

  54. Yup!

  55. Andy – I recognize you, but don’t see the dog anywhere.

  56. Looks like a bunch of juice to me. Which one is the gentile in the picture?

  57. It’s an inborn radar.

    See the two chicks in front of you guys? They didn’t even know there was a photog about to take a picture, but some sixth sense told them, simultaneously, to gesture in some fashion that would put their hands up over their faces.

    I think this natural ability occupies the part of the brain where a sense of direction would ordinarily be.

  58. Good point. That clears up a couple of longstanding questions.

    Leaky faucet to fix (SYWM). BBL

  59. Mark Steyn should be Carin’s redhead for this Thursday.
    He is seriously handsome. And that accent.

  60. We have a hole in the garage wall from one of those letting go. Very scary when they let loose. I didn’t find putting in new ones to be very challenging or dangerous.

  61. I didn’t find putting in new ones to be very challenging or dangerous.

    There’s a right way and a dangerous way.

  62. off to work. bbl

  63. off to work. bbl

    Well! I guess I’ll just hold my breath ’til you come back*

    *I sure ain’t gonna get no funneh from xBrad

  64. Sorry, MCPO.

    Fresh out of funneh.

    I did just book a trip to B’ham, AL for the late spring.

  65. Watcha gonna do in Birmingham, xbrad?

  66. Eh, you know, you need one of those tension bar thingys.

    Ain’t worth my time.. I still have to order the spring, and then fuck with it. Feh. Here’s fifty bucks. Install it, thanks.

  67. Mom is going to visit her sisters. I’ll crash at my cousin’s place, and maybe do some shooting and drinking.

    And beat her kids. They’re a couple of snots.

  68. For those of you who missed the story last night about the TiFW’s most excellent adventure at the movies, here’s my blog posting about it:
    http://teresainfortworth.wordpress.com/2011/02/27/fun-at-the-movies-with-rebecca/

    Oh, and I added a bunch of you miscreants’ blogs to my blogroll – if your name isn’t on there, or you want to be taken off, just let me know….

  69. And is JackStraw a commenter here, or just someone that Andy and a few of you guys knew already? I’m still a relative newby around here….

  70. Lunchtime.

  71. Jackstraw is a longtime friend, a good and decent feller, and I can’t wait to lift his wallet again.

  72. Jackstraw is Andy’s paramour (NTTIAWWT).

  73. Xbrad, Are you going to meet up with Romy and Cuffy?

  74. Dave, I just read about how you are supposed to do it.
    It looks like most people have a bar running inside the spring, and yes, that does look like a pain in the ass. We just have a spring attached to a pulley.

    Repairing it is very easy. The downside is that when it breaks metal flies.

  75. hence my willingness to leave it to others.

    metal flyin and all. they know how to suppress.

  76. Mark Steyn should be Carin’s redhead for this Thursday.
    He is seriously handsome. And that accent.

    Seconded! He’s dreamy for so many reasons. Andy, we need more information about Steyn in person, stat.

    What is he like one on one, how tall is he, and does he smell good?

    I canceled my subscription to The Spectator when he stopped writing for them.

  77. I was a fan for years before ever seeing what he looked like, and then when I did, WOW!

    Not fair to womankind.

  78. What is he like one on one, how tall is he, and does he smell good?

    I’m sure Andy buried his nose in Steyn’s neck stubble, inhaled, and let out a little tortured moan of longing.

  79. I heard he had diphallic terrrata.

  80. I’m sure Andy buried his nose in Steyn’s neck stubble, inhaled, and let out a little tortured moan of longing.

    Difficult to accomplish whilst JackStraw is humping your leg.

  81. I’m sure Andy buried his nose in Steyn’s neck stubble, inhaled, and let out a little tortured moan of longing.

    I want the details!

  82. Duke Snider died today. He was 84.

  83. Da-VID! I looked that up!

  84. Sean – A Brooklyn Dodger, through and through.

    RIP Duke.

  85. hey, I didn’t say it was a BAD thing

  86. The Duke uttered one of my favorite quotes of all time: “Halloween is a lousy day because its colors are orange and black.” Heh.

  87. How does this help me know what Mark Steyn smells like?

  88. Maple syrup, I’m guessing.

  89. With a dash of British Sterling…

  90. Andy, we need more information about Steyn in person, stat.

    What is he like one on one, how tall is he, and does he smell good?

    JS and I both remarked that he was taller than we expected. See here: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=31429930&l=7cf2d8119f&id=1011144896

    (Awful picture from the Blackberry … there’s a better version I’m trying to get hold of)

    I’m 5’11”, so that puts him at what, 6’5″ or so?

    Didn’t notice a smell. So that’s good, right?

  91. Somebody owes Andy some money.

  92. Didn’t notice a smell. So that’s good, right?

    No, you were in the perfect position to, as Laura suggested, bury your nose in his neck stubble and inhale the essence of awesomeness.

  93. Heh. That would be mare.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gekaEzqj5g#t=1m6s

  94. Sorry I let you guys down by not going flaming ghey on the guy.

  95. No, you were in the perfect position to, as Laura suggested, bury your nose in his neck stubble and inhale the essence of awesomeness.

    And then enjoy either the taste of pepper spray, or the tinglings of a tazer.

  96. The Juice made it damned clear that anybody who caused a disturbance was outta there (probably to be disappeared by the Mossad).

  97. Damn. Just…damn.

  98. OJ got a prison furlough?

    Oh, wait…

  99. *tumbleweed*

  100. There was just a lemon party reference on The Simpsons. WTF? Has this show jumped the shark?

  101. scott, my brother and I determined serveral years ago that The Simpsons jumped the shark here:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0701050/

    With a few exceptions, it’s been downhill since then.

  102. Well, this just sucks.

  103. Sean. I thought you were a sharp guy before the last comment (sims jump shark)

    Now, like a friggin razor.

  104. you sux

  105. Who is making me dinner tonight?

  106. 123 not it

  107. After a little online research, this is the part I need to make my sink stop dripping: http://plumbingparts.org/parts/982094.html

    $33? I know it says “each” but that must be for a pair, since you can buy the exact same thing on American Standard’s website for $16.

  108. Who is making me dinner tonight?

    *runs over a possum*

    GOT IT

    Tastes like chicken. And diesel.

  109. I bet it’s for a pair Andrew.

    Cool shots with Teh Steyn. You get around.

  110. runs over a possum*
    Hardy Har har!

    “It’s the little things in life…”
    Mrs. Chumpo, our wedding night.

  111. Harris Faulkner is sporting some nice cleavage tonight. Me likey.

  112. Thanks, Laura.

    Except you know I can’t really chew that possum…

  113. Xbrad, how much weight have you lost?

  114. Not a bit, Mr. Chumpo.

    I weigh the exact same amount.

    Or the scale is broken.

  115. “Not a bit”

    Oh, good for you. I had my jaw wired for five weeks and even though I put down thousands of cals daily I still lost 15 lbs.

    Anyhow,good job. keep doin’ what our doin’

  116. I could have stood to lose 10 pounds.

    Or 50, for that matter…

  117. “After a little online research, this is the part I need to make my sink stop dripping”

    Ugh, I need a couple of those but unfortunately replacement parts aren’t an option because the company that made mine went out of business. I need to cut everything out and start over to stop the shower from dripping.

    It’s a tight space.
    I remember the back spasms from installing the dishwasher (also tight space)

    A couple of years ago opened up the wall so we have access to shut off valves.

    Fixed!

  118. Xbrad you didn’t say if you were going to see Romy and Cuffy when you travel to Bama

  119. Really, whats your best fighting weight?

    Mine is 185. I’m back to 215 thanx to abject poverty.

    Good times though, all things considered.

  120. Sohita, I’m very hopeful I can make a side trip to Huntsville while I’m there.

  121. I spent almost my entire Army career between 165 and 175. I’m up to about 210 now.

  122. That’s not to bad bud. Considering all the PT, not to mention the years gone by.

    Here, have a doughnut.
    *puts doughnut in blender with some Myer’s Rum and a splash of half and half*

    I had to get incredibly creative with a blender while my jaw was wired.

  123. I can actually manage a donut without a blender.

    I’ve been snarfing down poptarts also…

  124. I’m gonna put up a new NON-SUMMARY poat – something light-hearted and silly….

  125. you must be proud.

    whappen to your chops?

  126. You go chica.

    Teresa we have never been properly introduced.

    My name is Chumpo.

  127. Scott, there were some third-party replacements at Home Depot online. They may have one that’ll fit your existing model.

    But that’s an unfortunately common problem nowadays. Back when these things had rubber washers in them, you could get a universal replacement set for about a buck and be hooked right up.

    This is one of the ceramic seats that, in theory, should never need to be replaced. And if it didn’t have a big crack that developed in the plastic part, that may have been right.

    Also, they don’t make getting into the damned thing none too easy. When it didn’t just screw apart like I thought it should, I spent a while looking at it like it was a monolith and I was one of the chimps in 2001 just to convince myself that there were indeed two parts that needed to separate.

    Turns out more elbow grease was required (and that bench vise I almost bought but didn’t a couple of weeks ago would’ve come in handy, too).

  128. Nice to meet you, Chumpo – I’ve seen a few of your comments over the past few weeks. You sound like all of my other friends (God help me!) – we’d prolly get along like bandits if’n we ever were to meet….

    New poat is up –

  129. I had to have all my teefs pulled.

  130. whut?
    Where did we go?????
