Happy Festivus

I put up the pole today. Just a small tabletop model as we are cutting back this year. It is the finest grade 6063 aluminum.

I added a light for each grievance I suffered this year.

A Festivus, for the rest of us!

Startin' a little early, aren't ya? Granted, not as much run up time as the Christmas celebrate-ers that start around Halloween, two months before... so I guess..... that two to three weeks ain't bad in the whole. And in a totally tastelss aside, tomorrow is St Nicholas Day, my family's official opening day of the holiday season! Nothing, no decorations or wreaths or anything, go up before then! My little rebellion against my mother who had the damn mantlepiece done before Thanksgiving dinner was digested, and refused to give poor Dad any peace until he got the tree up! LOL

The first feat of strength:

Fold a 4" x 4", 0.032" piece of 2024 T3 alclad aluminum in half with your bare hands. You MAY NOT heat the aluminum before doing this feat.

How many times can it be folded in half before it cannot be folded in half anymore?
Oof! Yup... Although it cracked that time.
