I knew what you were up to, LH, and I deliberately let you get away with it. Now send me the money you promised.

As for Khandu, it's just another example of Leadership Failure. Of maternal desertion. Some are loyel, and then there are Others.

Coises! We haz been Shat upon again!

Yes, I also bore witness to the knightships King khandu is passing out like Moonpies at a Mardi Gras parade over at Tweedsburg. But what can you expect. The boy is obviously brain-damaged as a result of his long incarceration at the hands of vile rebels, revolutionaries and terrorists in Toledo, Ohio, no less! And we have only ourselves to blame since none of us lifted a finger to help him. But, look, is it reasonable to think I should get in my truck and drive to friggin' Ohio, of all places, and search through every vacant warehouse and shotgun shack to find khandu? Hell no!Fuck 'im! I like the boy and all that shit but he really ain't worth it!

Ya know, Bee-Dubya, that's pretty much what the Idaho Legion said. Sagebrush Sore(he's called that ever since he did what he hadda do and grabbed a handful of sagebrush instead of using the Sears catalog pages) said to me jist t'other day, "Mebbe we shoulda went off and reskeyed that Khandu guy, but I shore din't fancy ridin' through Shekago er Dee-troit, so I'm right glad we got drunk insted. He's a good guy, but I ain't sure he's Top Hand enuff ta warrant ridin' down that there Outer Drive fer. And there ain't very much in the whole danged wurld worth ridin' on the Boreman fer!"

Ohmigod!!!! I made the mistake of trying to open this thread by clicking on the thread name instead of on the "D" or the number. My computer started screaming at me. "You want me to load what? That damned thread's longer than all but one of Stephen King's novels! I may be a reasonably new computer, but you still live in the country where dialup is the only kind of Internet connection you can get. Maybe you have all day to wait, but I've got better things to do. I swear, if you make me try to load it I'll lock up! I promise it!"

Pretty darned amazing, especially since I haven't had the speakers turned on for weeks.

I have found THIS THREAD to be so utterly MOABworthy that I am compelled to place this link to it here on the MOAB. It is the funniest thing I have seen on the 'Cat since Bubba Bubba and Debbie Earl tried to eat khandu and puked.

I refuse to have anything to do with either soap operas, Girl Scouts, or clothed female accordionists. In fact, the worst thing I can imagine is a soap opera featuring an accordionist wearing a Girl Scout uniform

The fact that you could even imagine it at all is pretty frightening.

Dear 42:

" Dickens' Mr. Bumble knew what he was talking about when he observed, "the law
is a ass." ("Oliver Twist")", to quote just one recent reference to one of my favorite quotations. Put "The Law is A Ass" into Google -- or better, read all of Dickens' collected works -- and you will find it.

At the time of this posting over 7500 posts are visible on the music side. We've got a measly 32 hundred and change...

Yeah, true, MMario, but the quality, Man! The Quality! E'en The Bard proclaims it:

"The quality of MOAB is not strain'd,        
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven        
Upon the place beneath: it is twice bless'd;        
It blesseth them that posts and them that reads:        
'Tis mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes        
The throned musician better than a lyre;        
A lute doth show the force of musical power;        
The accordion doth shock and awe,        
And therein sits the dread and fear of all.        
But MOAB is above this linear sway,        
It is enthroned in the hearts of kings and popes,        
It is an attribute to God his own self,        
And earthly power doth then show likest God's        
When MOAB seasons Musick."

Amos: I'm sooooo sorry I ruffled your grammatical feathers.

before you know it we'll all be using words without vowels and limiting ourselves to such descriptive gems as "nice" and "good" and "cool" so as not to even attempt to express a specific emotion.

Yes, indeed, there is a Chuck-o-rama in Boise. What is inside is one of Life's Mysteries, since I haven't darken the door of one since about 1993, in Provo, Utah. I remember that they did have delicious scones.

As for low-cost food, hmmmm.... I had very nice trout the other night, with aspargus and small potatoes, an excellent Idaho Riesling, and a lovely chocolate mousse for dessert. The whole thing was about $17.00, excluding tip. Breakfast for two days was the same: an omelette with sharp Tillamook cheddar and Black Forest-style ham, Seattle coffee (brand unknown, but quite good), sourdough toast with butter and Marion blackberry jam, and hash browns -- $8.75, without tip. A bit more than I'd normally pay, but what the hell, much of it's reimburseable and I can deduct the rest.

AND I got to a LARGE Barnes and Noble....

Funnel-web spiders are found in eastern Australia, including Tasmania, in coastal and highland forest regions - as far west as the Gulf Ranges area of South Australia. Gardeners and people digging in soil may encounter Funnel-webs in burrows at any time of the year. The Sydney Funnel-web Spider (Atrax robustus) occurs from Newcastle to Nowra and west to Lithgow.

Funnel-webs are large spiders (1.5 - 4.5 cm body length) with glossy dark brown to black carapace. The abdomen is usually dark plum to black and not patterned. The eyes of Funnel-webs are closely grouped. Male funnel-webs approach the females' hidden burrows, possibly by following the scent of their chemical attractants. During mating, the male must restrain the female from striking him with her fangs using the spurs on his second legs, while he transfers sperm via his palps into her genital opening.

The female then spins a pillow-shaped silk egg sac, into which she lays over 100 eggs. She cleans and turns the egg sac several times during incubation and will defend it vigorously if disturbed. The spiderlings hatch about three weeks later, and stay with the mother for a few months. After two moults, they leave her burrow, dispersing by foot to eventually make their own burrows. Juvenile males will stay in their burrows until their final adult moult, after which they will become wanderers. Funnel-webs mature in about two to four years, with the females living to ten or more years, and the males dying about six to nine months after maturity.

Toxicity
Bites are most prevalent during summer and autumn when males leave the burrows in search of females. Bites are dangerous and can cause serious illness or death. The venom appears to particularly affect primates (ie humans), whereas other mammals - such as cats and dogs - are relatively resistant.

The male Sydney Funnel-web Spider is more dangerous than the female. This is because the toxic venom component that attacks the human and primate nervous symptom so severely is only present in male spiders. Initial symptoms after a bite include local pain, mouth numbness, vomiting, abdominal pain, sweating and salivation, ultimately death, if antivenene is not administered.

I mention all this because Sydney is well populated with funnel web spiders, and also because weve got on to things to do with bugs in this thread. a friend found a funnel web spider on her verandah a few years ago. She put it in a plastic container in the freezer. When it was frozen, she dipped it in epoxy resin and made an earring from it.
