    I wear deerskin welding gloves to pick the lemons from the myer lemon tree in front of my house.

    If I don't, it's like reaching into a nest of fighting cats.

    The family cat has become quite the entrepreneur by starting a flying squirrel tail cropping service. There seems to be a fresh tail by the back door every few days.

    Funny you should ask, I am about too.

    I asked our nursery operations manager for tips, he suggested:

    Till the soil down to 12"-14"
    Add lots of sand, turn it into the tilled soil.
    Rake in some compost on top
    Sow seeds evenly and rake in lightly to cover
    Tamp down the soil firmly
    Keep moist until seedlings are just big enough to thin out a bit (if needed)

    Your basic tree rat sleeps at night.

    Flying Squirrels are active at night.
    They are about a third the size of a gray squirrel and love to get into your attic.

    If you need help with a Flying Squirrel problem I would be glad to ship the cat to you. He is most affective in this area.

    As I stated before in another thread, human breast milk has amazing resistance to bacteria and can be stored at room temp for 10-12 hours.

    RHCP can only wish for this type of shelf life.

    in the liquor store parking lot, i saw a stripper do some meth. she never knew i was watching her, and if her face was any indicator, her life was worth living for ten minutes or so.

    Why is it that in elevators in buildings with only two floors, there is a button for 1 and 2? It's only possible to the floor that you aren't on. It seems unnecessary.

    Why do elevators in buildings with only two floors take 10 times longer to reach the top than a building with thirty floors??

    good friggin question. I've been gimping around on crutches for awhile so I kind of have to take the elevator whenever possible, and I've noticed this exact phenomenon.

    I think it has to do with the fact there is less room for the car to safely accelerate.

    Rumor is that you can put a multi-floor elevator into Express Mode by holding down your floor and the close button at the same time. Have you ever been waiting for the elevator in a Vegas hotel and heard the damn car zoom by w/o stopping at your floor? Give it a try!

    crosswalk hacks

    The most popular hack, which works on most models, is the "Instant Walk." Three short clicks, followed by two long, one short, two long, and three short; turn any crosswalk signal from "don't walk" to "walk" with a matching change in the traffic signals.

    Remember to make sure that the TP dispenser has TP in it BEFORE you sit down next time.

    If you are eating Raisinets, don't assume any small brown objects that you find in your lap or on the desk are Raisinets that you dropped.
