Afterall, the eggs in the frying pan are the final dertermination if all the other methods worked or not. Why not start with them?

I've also found that I have some fine adjustment tuning capability regarding who rolls which direction in the FB queen sized bed.

This is funny, but about ten years ago I would have been considering using lasers or GPS to come up with an expensive and highly accurate horizontal situation analysis and adjustment system. Could do it with microwave but I think using passive sensors with a pre-positioned and stability maintained baseline reference is the way to go.

Now? ha. even the chinese can't screw up a bubble of air for long.

Just a personal opinion, but I like to level the floor, because I don't like climbing hills...hard on my old knees.

And besides, if your eggs "run out and over one side", I think you are using the griddle when you should be using the pan.

nope it was definitely a frying pan. It said "RevereWare" right there in the middle of it in that copper part where I kept putting the eggs. You use the big cupped area under the pan to contain the flame of the gas burner, right?

I did notice the handle goes downward at an angle, from the edge of the bottom closest to the stove. not sure why that was designed that way. I keep hitting my knuckles on the edge of the stove.

you'd think they'd pack a better manual with these things.

UH, sure, OK, fine.

Mind if I have a swig out of that bottle?

The design of the handle is intended to compensate for the inability of some users to properly level their Airstream.
The handle is to be pointed to the low side and assists is keeping the eggs on the flat surface.
Hope this helps.
Some things are just to simple.
