You can do this stuff when you are the type of fella carries the Kamasutra in his back pocket.

Brent the contortionist, certified in overhead plasma cutting, said he would, "By God" fish those wires through the B-pillar. It didn't quite work out that way and he ended up cutting much of the interior panel out of the body to make a bigger hole for the passage of the wire trunk.

Meritorious Mention

Some may have noted Waterboy's thorough and patient schooling of Ken, the willfully obtuse yankee apologist commenting in an historical thread burdened by an unusual temporal confusion compounded by the conviction his meritless, irrelevant assertion would become plausible if often repeated and supported by a cascade of creatively redefined terms.

An except from a particularly remarkable exchange with Waterboy:

WaterBoy (
Ken: "What's this nonsense that a group of people occupying land within another country can suddenly declare themselves a separate legitimate sovereignty without the consent of the host country?"

Why, this 'nonsense' is from the venerable words of none other than Rep. Abraham Lincoln himself, circa 1848:

"Any people any where, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing Government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable, a sacred right a right which, we hope and believe, is to liberate the world. Nor is this right confined to cases in which the whole people of an existing Government may choose to exercise it. Any portion of such people that can, may revolutionize, and make their own of so much of the territory as they inhabit."

Well, I certainly disagree with the last portion of that sentiment.

In recognition of the sweet irony of having our very own resident yankee (geographical) ,Waterboy, give the beat down to a yankee apologist I have inserted in the panel to the right a link entitled "Waterboy's Bitch" to Ken's Obama Blog.

A Cautionary Tale

For those of us who find ourselves getting a bit carried away in our adventures with chemistry, physics, innovation, and fire. You know who you are, for you are nodding your head even as you read the following line of reasoning:

Tired and a bit bored one evening, I took a break, swigged some soda, and set the Coke can down on the pipe rack. It fell neatly into a length of exhaust pipe. This raised some intriguing possibilities. I wondered if a small acetylene explosion would launch a can from the pipe. As it happened, an acetylene set was ready to hand, and I proceeded unimpeded with my experiment.

And That Bastard Lincoln is Deified

Documents recently released by the Vatican contain this excerpt from a letter to Pope Pius IX from Jefferson Davis on behalf of the Confederacy.

“We desire no evil to our enemies, nor do we covet any of their possessions; but are only struggling to the end that they shall cease to devastate our land and inflict useless and cruel slaughter upon our people.”
