Was: Recycling crucibles
You speak of NHers driving rather than paying postage - not my
*usual*, but I will admit when I bought my 2002 Lexus last year, it
is SUCH a joy to drive, that rather than mail $3000 worth of silver
to the refinery, I drove 1 1/2 hours to deliver it by hand. Singing
the whole way. I toyed with the idea of driving 1700 miles round trip
to Tucson last week, ostensibly to check out a motorcycle on
Craigslist but really to buy gems for which I have no budget. Didn't
do it, kinda wished I had.
OOh, once in a class my teacher told me to mix hydrogen peroxide
with pickle to get Super Pickle. I mixed straight Sparex with
Hydrogen Peroxide and got UBER PICKLE!! The whole class laughed at
that one. And my last claim to idiocy, I spend $900 on a vintage
rolltop watchmaker's bench, just because it was the property of my
mentor and rock star, and asked him to sign it for me, which he did
in Sharpie. Did I need the bench NO, but I smile every time I look
at it. And even though I know he'd have a MI if he saw the mess I
keep on it.
More funny stories, please!
