    Switch? (I remember some toys which did not have any switch and only way to stop them was to remove batteries. Would be fitting for toy like this.)

    Seriously Diane? I mean, sure, there are several debatable cases here, but how can you NOT count Tedd as nerd? (... of course the next page likely reveals that everyone except Ellen feels like nerd.)

    And in the meantime everything will be a skating rink. Please be careful on the roads!

  6. The Weather.

    We are currently getting three to six inches. That's nothing, right? Nobody has snow tires. They've never heard of snow chains, the stores don't sell them. You can't hardly buy a snow shovel. Few that have lived here all their life know how to drive on snow. Even though it's actually snowing, it's melting when it hits and then freezing. It was just warm enough to not stay snow, now it's slush on the roads which will be ice soon, and wet snow on the cars. It''s heavier than powder, so we may have tree limbs falling and sometimes power lines. Supposed to hit 26 F tonight; next Tuesday is projected to be 62 F, and it will all be melted.

    My guess is that since the bunny is styled on a mid 20th century battery powered toy rabbit, if it was a real toy from that era, it would have batteries, a motor, and a switch; no electronics. Reversing the batteries could fail to complete the circuit, but not necessarily; I vaguely recall doing that as a kid, and the motor would still work. Depends on the contact design. The motor would be a cheapie DC motor, and should run backward. So, linkages allowing, the bunny should back step and still be beating the drum. The cam might not work in reverse, if it has a sudden level shift. So " It keeps gniog and gniog and gniog" is a fair description. Old school flashlights should probably work with backward batteries. Anything with electronics will probably not work.

    It keeps gniog and gniog and gniog?

    Well, you know what happens if you put the bunny's batteries in backward, don't you?

    Nah, Energizer. It keeps going and going and going. . .

    Now claiming 60% chance of snow starting around 11:00 tonight. Of course they are saying snow, but the temperature will still be above freezing, which means we get cold wet and nasty, not really snow. We got a light dusting of snow.

    'Fixed' that for you. Yeah, that's why I'm doing short posts of late. :-)

    Maglite, with Duracells.

    So, the question that popped into my head was, "It's Canada, it's snow, ... how is this 'special'?" "We have a really weak cold front moving in, it's more like a cool front, really. But we don't want it to feel bad, so we're calling it, 'special'. You can do it, cool front! And that's our special weather statement. The mind is a terrible thing ...

    A little light humor, eh? \me takes names.

    If you figure out you want to delete before you hit submit, you can just leave the page. Afterward, all you can do is edit the second one into a quote and add a comment, "What an excellent post".

    I think Sarah wouldn't like it either. Now, Diane on the other hand ... (Note that I'm sure Nanase and Fox kissing Ellen happened already. Both with Ellen looking as herself and Ellen looking as Grace.) I wanted to see mini-Elliot and mini-Ashley cuddling on the couch tooooo! Who didn't? However, Dan promised that he will draw it later, so I'm not lighting my torch yet.

  25. The coolest thing I've seen in a while.

    I never got the impression that Scotty was talking about an aluminum compound. I don't know if that's canon. Sapphire is hardly novel, as you pointed out; it's used in engineering applications and has been know for centuries. I also did not get the impression that he was talking about extremely thin sheets of aluminum, nor aluminum screen. I did understand him to mean transparent at optical frequencies, not at, say gamma wavelengths, which would be a given. He seemed to be talking about an allotrope of pure aluminum, or possibly an alloy that was primarily aluminum, like steel is primarily iron. Also, from the use in the whale movie to make a holding tank, it was stable at standard temperature and pressure (STP). It was clearly intended to be fictional in context; I would stop short of stating it is impossible, though. Sapphire is odd. Hard generally means brittle as well. While softer than diamond, sapphire is among the hardest materials we have, but it is also fairly tough. Hence the use in tank optics.

    This is what you're looking for, and the other Grace (or rather Claire) in this was Ellen. Now we need one of Nanase and Fox kissing Ellen. (Or Grace. Or Ashley. Or Sarah. Susan... um, no, she'd have the wrong reaction.)

    There were 3 potential hoodlums planning on taking advantage of Rhoda, up until they overheard her mention her proficiency with large hammers. So she can still be a deterrent without realizing it. That was good luck, I wouldn't rely on that. She could easily meet someone who would notice she is inexperienced and has money without hearing that bit about hammer.
