YEah, but you're physically incapable of those other things, and it only feels like it would break your face to congratulate someone.

Not quite. That nine wobbles a little and it slows to a stop faster than other spinners.

I can bark, whistle and play the trumpet all at the same time. That's because My Heart Is Pure.

On reflection I have to say that I think it is more likely because you have an opposable sphincter, and can whistle through your eardrums...

I think that's known in musical circles as Innuendo Obliogato, pal. I expect a compliance report.


You can use the trumpet -- might as well put it to productive use.

That's not the worst thing I've seen someone deliberately do to themselves. I won't go into it any more except to say that folks who live in SoCal have been known to, well...never mind. I would not want Mom to find out what Amos has been up to.

Consider the difficulty you would have (and it happens!) if one of the vent pipes on the roof for the plumbing became plugged. It's cleaner work, but that's about all that can be said for it.

The layout of this house makes it easy to imagine what it looks like without the walls and doorways. Visualize a capital 'T'. The concrete pad has two bathrooms (both aligned with the right side of the top of the T) and a kitchen sink in addition to the laundry room (bottom of the T). The drain out to the sewer is at the front (left hand side of the top of the T). The plumber who did this last time pointed out that I'd planted a tree on top of the sewer line. I moved the tree that very week, because it was small enough I could still do it. Fingers crossed it isn't the tree roots.

I paced out the distance from my washer to the intersection with the bathroom pipes. And I've been thinking about how water flows.

The two bathrooms don't have a blockage problem. I run baths and my son does showers and the water drains fine at the normal rate of drainage.

The washer is about the same distance from the sewer connection outside as the nearest bathroom. The water doesn't stop completely, it doesn't drain fast enough. The washer pushes water down the drain, it doesn't gravity feed, and the slow drainage somewhere a number of feet away means it backs up in the pipes. This line shares the kitchen sink drain. I don't run food down it often and I use hot water and soap to break up any grease before it goes down the drain.

I think the line from the sewer access back into the house has potential as a portal, but it's second on my list to try, because the snake would have to make a right turn and it is more likely to keep going along the top of the T straight past that intersection and head for the bathrooms. Hmmmm. If I try that and it works, then I don't have to get a longer snake. So maybe it needs to go on the top of the list. Let me get my moon suit before I open that clean out.

Yes, and I prefer pure lithium or, in a pinch, potassium.

Perhaps...Gluon?

Come all you young fellers so young and so ripe
And seek not your fortune in the dark, dreary pipe
It will form as a habit and won't make you a hit
'Til the blood of your veins runs as black as the...poop.

Where it's dark as the dungeon and damp as the dew
Where the dangers are many and the pleasures are few
Where the rain never falls and there's always a gripe
It's dark as the dungeon way down in the pipe.

It's many a man I have seen in my day
Who lived just to labor his whole life away
Like a drunk with his whiskey or canteloupe ripe
A man must have lust for the lure of the pipe.

I hope when I'm gone and the ages do roar
My body will blacken and form into manure
Then I'll look down from the door of my Heavenly home
And pity the homekeeper a-snakin' my bones

The midnight, the morning, the breaking of day
Are the same to the snaker who labors away.
Where the demons of death often gives you a chit,
One slip of the snake and your hand's full of...stuff.

Using dynamite would be crude, Rapaire. Overkill. I think that the raw sodium in the gelatin capsule is a much more sophisticated way of blowing open a blocked drain. Have you seen what happens when a chunk of pure sodium is dropped into water? It's quite spectacular.
