    Don't Whizz on the Electric Fence


    If people want to aim for an electric fence and hit that itty bitty couple mm wire
    ill pay +100 for a direct shot, +1000 and a Golden Bucket for a direct hit while riding an animal, -10 for a miss.

    Learned that when you are unfit you shouldn't attempt random 4km bush walks through the hills.. OMG Im paying for it today - my poor legs
    How can the NNA AU claim to represent vapers if they don't bother to talk to all of them?
    If they dont talk and listen to the whole vaping community, how can they know what vapers want or need?
    If most of the vaping community is ignored- who do the NNA AU really represent?

    I learned that FPV (First Person View) Drone Racing is totally a thing.

    Here's a a guy piloting a drone while watching the action/flight path via the inbuilt camera:

    I like that quote a lot Hoofprint. Admittedly, I find it difficult to understand what one might gain from a direct shot of electricity to the genitals, but you're right. Each their own I guess. Roll on the Golden Buckets!

    At very least, people who maintain toilets would probably appreciate his accuracy. Who knows? They might even be impressed.

    Ouch! Know that feeling well RATM. Sounds like you need to wash some of that lactic acid out of your leg muscles mate?

    The spatial awareness those guys have while flying at those speeds is nothing short of insane.

    Almost inspiring enough to make me want to spring some cash for a little Cheerson or something, though I doubt my own flying skills would get me much further than the living room.

    I suspect we'll be seeing a lot more of these devices in the coming years, and not just in media driven fear campaigns.

    I was to busy laughing my ass off to use my camera phone, the big sook threatened to thump me, from a curled up fetal position, while crying, then he remembered I don't drink, and I had a car, and I was bigger than him,,,, big bloody sook.

    I learned today that being a grumpy old fart with "issues" makes you learn to laugh at yourself.

    Neighbours want to extend a Pig Pen to the property border , which will entail replacing our existing fence ( something I have no drama with) but it involves digging holes, Did I mention I hate digging holes ? Well I do , cos the ground here is heavy clay and its a beearch ! With this is mind I thought eff it , and bought an 82cc Post hole digger ! A cheapy , but MAN! best thing EVAH! 300mm holes 600mm deep in a couple of minutes !
    It whacked out 4 holes nice and easy , but that was about the limit of my legs... I was half way thru prepping the ride-on for the first mow of the season when neighbour announced he wanted to do the holes , so I put that off ... after the 4 holes were done went back to finishing the prep on the old White ( mower) .. and after grumbling a lot and flooding it , it finally started and purred like a kitten !!! Life is getting better !
    Soooo I do the front half acre of the back yard , no drama at all , even tho the grass was a foot tall and a little wet .. OK I am bloody tired , my legs ache , my right knee got tweaked in a rabbit hole .. I KNOW I am gonna hurt like a mongrel tomorrow, but it wasnt so bad .... THEN!!!!

    On a straight easy run I hear a CLUNK!! grrr from the back end of the mower and the drive stops dead ... I can tell you I went straight from hurting but good to wanting to pick it up and throw it thru a fence ! I was 110% sure I had just shat a transaxle ... and for the White , that's a fatal error ... I mean the thing is as ugly as sin , cuts ok , runs nice, but its nearly 40 years old and a diff blowup would have sealed its fate
    I was hoping for a broken belt maybe? .. nope intact... damn.. ok turn transaxle pully by hand , no resistance its just spinning there ... Rage and, dare I say it tears, were welling up lol I was in a world of physical pain and the last thing I needed was Financial pain too

    It was a dark place I was in ... when I looked at the F-N-R shift lever on the rear left of the seat ... turns out a certain "Someone" who has a left thigh that has no feeling in it " MAY " have accidentally had his thigh pressing on the lever and knocked the damn thing into neutral while driving !!!
    Hence the clicks and BANG ! ... the sun came out again ... but I learnt that a grumpy hurty Fatman is only ever a few inches away from throwing spanners when he is like that
    JOB DONE ... but I warn you ... I KNOW I am not gonna be a pleasant fatty tomorrow .. you have been warned
