    Re: Post Race!

    So, we're almost up to the solstice. Another year shrunk down to the shortest day of the year. Then comes the rebound.

    I've patented a perpetual motion machine, so I'm good. Well, technically, it isn't a perpetual motion machine, as that would violate some physical laws (and those cops are TOUGH). My design involves harnessing the hot air coming out of Congress to generate enough electricity to end human dependence on oil for all time. Now, the obvious flaw in the design is that Congress might learn to get along....BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Sorry, couldn't get that out without laughing.

    As you were.

    If the hot air from Congress was combined with the hot air from Parliament - then anything could be possible.........

    If Congress and Parliament started putting the needs of the people first then it would be obvious that "The Invasion Of The Body Snatchers" is real.

    Typing caused an injury sufficient to send you to the ER?

    Ya know, when people talk about "strongly typed", that doesn't mean that you pound the keyboard so hard that it shatters and sends splinters through your hand.

    I actually put the asterisks in myself rather than relying on the profanity filter but I can confirm that it sounded a lot like "stick"

    Cryptic message from typing with one hand.

    Jacked up my hand, hard to type now with just one hand.

    Yea it is moderately serious. Basically road rash on street asphalt. While taking out the trash barrel one evening in the light rain I slipped and dropped ~125 lb on my fingers while still holding it. We live on a hill so it dragged about 6"-1 foot grinding the tops of my left hand fingers. Couldnt pull it out as barrel too heavy. So had to lift it up. Grinded all the skin off, some tendon and two small/short fractures at the middle finger knuckle by the nail. Its been 3 weeks and barely getting some movement in the most serious finger the middle one. I could post pictures but I'd have to ban myself lol

    You had a 125lb trash barrel?????

    Did you throw out your enormous stash of lead figurines, fishing weights, and assorted filings? I don't think I generate that weight of trash in a YEAR, unless you count yard waste.

    Re: Post Race!

    Yea and actually may have been heavier. I've been working since late summer on leveling my backyard. We live on a hill and its 100+ year old house. So over the decades runoff coming down the hill was building up. Then some previous owner built a block wall and it stopped. The low end is about 1 foot high/thick of extra dirt and the high end next to the wall is 2.25 feet of extra dirt. So Im not able to spend $10,000 on landscaping I opted to do it myself. Its just time and manual labor. Every weekend for about 30-60 minutes I dig up 4 barrels of dirt about 1/2 way high and just throw it out lol. Already removed the dead avocado tree, a rubber tree, 4 bougainvillea trees, 2 clothes line poles with cement footings etc.

    So on the previous week it was raining all week. On the weekend when it stopped I dug up very damp dirt filling the barrels 3/4 full, more than usual trying to speed my progress, being wet it was heavy af. Surprised the trash truck took it but at least I now know the limits lol.

    Re: Post Race!

    When I was in grad school I lived for a year in an old dormitory from the 1800s. My room was kind of crazy. The doorway was 6' high, while the ceiling of the room was 12' high. It felt kind of like some strange igloo. What made it all the more entertaining is I'm 6' 3" high, so I had to duck pretty well to get through the doorway.

    Re: Post Race!

    I did a backyard project like that. In my case, it was putting in a patio, raised gardens, and some other stuff. The first step involved a whole lot of dirt removal. I don't remember what I did with it all.

    My house sits on a solid concrete slab. On hot summer days, I've often thought about cutting a hole through the floor in one closet, and digging out a 'basement'. It would be blissfully cool on hot summer days. Unfortunately, it would probably also be an indoor swimming pool, cause despite living in a desert, I believe the water table is not all that far beneath my house, due to the spring line emerging in the area.

    I read this article on this guy that did a DIY wine storage bunker by digging a massive hole in his back yard, buried a shipping container, made concrete stairs with a pumping system for when it rained. Looked stealth from above as he had the grass replanted over it and the entry stair well was hidden behind a bush. He cheated though as used heavy equipment to dig the hole and lower the container in it lol

    No, the legit way to do this is to rig up your trousers with some internal sleeves, then fill those with dirt and wander around the neighborhood letting a bit out at a time so that nobody suspects you are digging the hole. That's the Great Escape way to go about it. It's only a little bit harder to fool Homeowners Associations than it is to fool the gestapo because their greater diligence is somewhat offset by their generally elderly health.

    Sounds like you have experience dropping droppings all over undetected lol

    We dont have a homeowners association but we do have the historic society which regulates modifications to the exterior of houses.

    Oh I DO have experience with that.

    My brother-in-law dug out the basement of his shop, thereby creating a whole second floor. It was done really well, and entirely by hand, though he had to use a hammer drill with a chisel bit to cut through the clay soil.
