Wonderful!!!!!! Thanks for that, Stilly. There are few sights more heartwarming and simply glorious than seeing a bunch of Dachshunds running flat out down a racetrack! They love the excitement and the competition, not to mention the celebrations and refreshments at the end. The fact that a Dachshund named Otto von Schnitzel took the top prize makes it absolutely perfect. I have never heard of a more ideal name for a Dachshund than Otto von Schnitzel. Wunderbar!

I know Little Hawk has a dachshund thread going out there somewhere but I can't find it. This is for you and anyone else who wants to see simultaneously short and long dogs in what is humorously called a "race." :)

Does the Bible talk about that Highway 666 out in Navajo country? Does that mean the NDNs are the lost tribe? You've proved that fairy story is true? Wow!

Stilly, you gotta read yer bible more - that post ended in 666.

Strippin' paint pro;bly would be an excellent use - although those North Carolina 'shiners got a long history of producing some seriously good white liquor.

Now, a thump keg could get you a second run right from the first -- two runs together, you might say. Thump kegs came about during the Great American Experiment and they ain't traditional but it you want to use one well, just make sure it's using pure copper and it's brazed. Won't run the proofage up to 180, though.

But again, this is all theory and you should try this at home because your mileage may vary with a professional driver.

Janie, I was going to use it to take the paint off of a few metal things around here that need to be stripped and then repainted. You think I'd try drinking this?

Stuff was probably run out of old car radiators. Now a GOOD still is pure copper and it's brazed, not welded and especially not soldered. The top is kept on with flour paste so if the pressure DOES get to high it'll blow off the lid and hurt anything.

If you're using a pot still (one without a worm) you can gather the run in a bucket, but a worm still has to have the coil in water, preferably running water, so that the whiskey fumes will condense correctly. Of course, you toss out the first cup or so because it's prit near pure fusel oil -- let the fairies drink it.

You want to run it through three times altogether if you can, run the alcohol content up to 180 proof (you can powder proof it if you don't have a bead bottle or a specific gravity measurer). Course, it depends on the sugar content of your still beer and that depends on your mash but shucks, Mom already knows that.

Please note that this is all theoretical and I most certainly would never have sullied my lips with any sort of illegal liquor, nor would I encourage anyone else to do so.

MOM, I have to stay awake and alert enough to drive 30+ miles to pick up Sum Yung Sun and a couple of his buds at midnight from a night time airsoft game.

Why is it that my frequent insomnia rarely kicks in on these occasions? Is it a conspiracy?

Yeah, Mom, we should have left her in that "hospital" a while longer. At least until the electroconvulsive therapy was finished. Or even started. Yeah, we sprung her too soon.

That's okay. I've got a pair of car jumper cables and we can fix her up ourselves. We'll just drive the tractor over and...what? But it would only be for her own good, Mom.

Aw, Mom....

"It was cold, and the storm was relentless, and we were without shelter. We relied on ourselves for survival. We held eachother for warmth, and if it weren't for each other, we would have surely perished. Though, that cold night we shared a simple kiss. It wasn't homoerotic by any sense, as we were both androgynous constructs, and have yet to pick our gender. But, through that kiss, we forged our salivas and instinctly knew our fates were intertwined. But, like before we soon separated on our seperate paths. Later, we chose our gender, both male and on a chance encounter,   we both felt the awkwardness of the kiss". Quote, Anime Sucks

Besides, Mom's feet reside in Another Dimension. I remember one day she reached down to wipe the gunk out from between her toes and her finger just disappeared and reappeared when she was done. She told me at the time that "this was better than them Odor Eaters OR clean socks OR washing [her] feet, this keeping them in another dimension." Her only problem is that Gluon sometimes licks them and tickles Mom.

Sorry, this reads better....poor job of cut and paste

"In the fourteenth century, the points of shoes grew to such lengths that some had to be fastened to the wearer's leg , j ust below the knee. The clergy objected vehemently to the fashion, claiming that the long-pointed shoes prevented the faithful from kneeling in church. In many communities, shoe-point length was eventually limited by law to about two inches.

In the sixteenth century, aristocratic French women began wearing high-heeled shoes so steep that the well-heeled wearer was literally standing on her toes when she wore them. Later, stiltlike wooden platform shoes became the rage in Venice. The heels eventually became so high that women could not walk in them, and servants were hired to help the ladies in and out of their gondolas. The fashion reportedly owed much to the Venetian husband's desire to make sure his wife didn't travel far while he was away, the same concern that motivated the Chinese to bind their women's feet.

it wasn't until the invention in 1818 of the left-shoe last and the right-shoe last that the left shoe was constructed differently from the right shoe. Prior to that, either shoe could be worn on either foot with equal discomfort!"

Shatner does it primarily for humorous effect, I think...and because he can, of course. Perform, I mean...not sing. Even he admits that he can't sing...but he does perform songs in his own unique fashion.

Shatner never tries to do anything, Amos...he DOES things, by golly! But he doesn't sing, that's for sure. He does "exercises in tonal breath control".*

* (an obscure old Dylan quote from the 60s...when some reporters asked him to describe what he does)

View his bizarre rendition of "Rocket Man" on Youtube for undeniable proof of all I have just said.
