Re: Post a picture of a cat

An older video from the slowmo guys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=705OzYq7cXU How elegant she's jumping on top of the fence! Very beautiful! It always amazes me how perfectly in tune with themselves they are - they’ll jump juuuuust hard enough to get where they want to go, but no harder. My old ...

Re: Test Equipment Anonymous (TEA) : Discussion and Group Therapy Thread

Just so. Arsine AsF 3 being another. My father was quite happy to bring home some conc HCl and iron sulphide in his coat pocket, and for me to stink out the kitchen by mixing them. He said he was frightened by HF, and wouldn't go near it, even at work. The "things I wouldn't work with" su...

Re: Test Equipment Anonymous (TEA) : Discussion and Group Therapy Thread

Definitely not. There was a lot of hydrofluoric acid used at National Semi and the treatment just for being exposed to it was miserable - the affected area was to be coated in cold calcium gluconate for I forget how long, and if you were exposed badly enough that it got near bone you’d need to go fo...

Re: Test Equipment Anonymous (TEA) : Discussion and Group Therapy Thread

I'm with Mike in this - I prefer an odd number of pedals (unless it's a flying machine, then they should be in multiples of two), and knobs & levers to control things. 'Soft' controls and touch screens have no place in a vehicle (certainly not beyond the radio, where I'll grudgingly accept them ...

Re: Test Equipment Anonymous (TEA) : Discussion and Group Therapy Thread

I was beginning to think this would never arrive - spotted and instantly ordered it on March 6th from our favorite wallet depletion site. It was shipped that very day from Boston via USPS. Made it to Shrewsbury, MA the next day, then inexplicably went to Chicago. On Saturday the 9th it was processed...

Great score on the Tek, not so much on the Coof. Hope it’s a very mild case.

:lol: :lol: :lol: Cats are weird (though you doubtless already know this). Some just like to curl up in sinks - I suppose because it’s like a little den, depressed below the surroundings and thus a 'safe' spot to snooze.
