    Lintula’s avatar always reminds me of the horse that the Pink Panther kept trying to ride. EEEEE-Ur-ur-ur-ur-ur.

    re: ingsoc

    ‘round here it’s mostly conifer needles. Junipers, pines, cedars (incense and red), western larch (like tamarack but about twice as tall and much stronger wood), western yew, hemlock (western and mountain), white fir, grand fir, noble fir, silver fir, subalpine fir, and douglas fir…

    Must be terrible living in Bend, having to put up with all the damaged mail.“Look, Fred! This package actually says ‘bend!’” CRUNCH!!!!

    While I love Samson’s animations, I will have to admit, I don’t understand this joke. Is the device a generator,or engine? And does “****” mean the same as “ahem”? I guess the missing panel is how the asterisks get from the balloon to the machine.

    If Horace was working on the machine, and amongst all the parts of the machine we saw a void where an asterisk would work as a gear, and then Horace cusses in frustration (@#*$%!), from which he removes the asterisk, and now the machine is working, that would be a good joke.

    I don’t quite get it, either. The machine looks kind of like a vaulting horse, and he’s a horse….?
