Hello, fellow Apple enthusiast!
Darrin, thanks for the thoughtful responses.
I’ve usually heard it pronounced in the trade with a silent QL, I.e. post-gres.
True fact: printers also place unique patterns of nearly invisible dots on copies. Just ask Reality Winner about that.
Our daughter put a bean in her ear. Even the doc said it was surprisingly difficult to get out.
Long ago, in what seems like another lifetime, my new bride and I would go to the Oberlin reservoir to cool off during the heat of summer. Our first trip out there, sharing the giant truck tire inner tube, we discovered the reservoir was populated by many many tiny fish, and they liked to come up to you and nibble on your exposed skin… it tickled so much that we didn’t relax much at all in the cool water!
It’s a Midwest thing.
Actually, I think it was “slow match,” which was a rope-like substance they used to use to light cannons. Legend was he would weave it into his beard so that it would create a smoky, sputtering appearance that would strike fear into his victims/enemies.
Munch, munch, munch, ump forgot his lunch! Eat it, ump, eat it!
I, too, am curious about The Unpleasantness. The Wikipedia page for Sunnyside, Washington does mention the lighted farm implement parade, but does not mention any unpleasantness. However, I did notice that Sunnyside is at the extreme eastern edge of Yakima county; the neighboring county to the east is Benton county, which contains the Hanford Nuclear Reservation; I wonder if The Unpleasantness refers to the fact that radiation isotopes were released into the air as part of plutonium processing during 1945-1951, and it got into the human food chain when cows ate contaminated grass and produced radioactive milk?
