1960 Pontiac Sled

Monday, 14 January 2019

This wide ride fit in very few parking spaces, and on the road the margin of error was slim. That’s why you see so few of them anymore. Looks like the snow pack is up to the railing at this resort, so the snowbunny on the left must be about 9-feet tall, too.

Don’t Forget IWYLD

Tuesday, 4 January 2011

That’s right, TR Fans.

Today is International Weigh Your Lemur Day, so get out your graph paper and tally sheets, line ‘em up and set ‘em down. If you use a digital scale be sure to cover it properly so that the inevitable little lemur leaks don’t damage the expensive electronics.

I can’t remember how many (supposedly) waterproof scales I’ve had to return over the years. It always ends in an argument with the salesperson, right up until I drop the bombshell:

“Look. This scale can’t even sustain a bladder full of lemur piss. I’ll show you. Wait here for a minute.”

Now, I don’t own a lemur, nor do I have a bladder of lemur piss to produce at a moment’s notice, but you’d be surprised at how fast you can get a damaged waterproof scale replaced with that simple browbeating argument.

Remember this but use it only when circumstances absolutely demand it, and you’re welcome.
