True story. Bob

Hi, 2air. As the saying goes; Your a day late and a dollar short. I have indeed found water inside of my Airstream marker lights. [Marker Fluid] I replaced the screws, added washers, and "O" rings. After this November heat wave, maybe it might rain before Christmas, so I can tell if it fixed the leaks.

Bob

Also, I was going to ask the same question about the "L" being for liquid, too. I'm glad I wasn't the only one that was confused about wheather there was or wasn't liquid in there. I had researched the difference between LCD vs. plasma and remembered that LCD's were discovered like in the 19th century (no that's not a typo, it was the 19th century) but no real use for them had been developed until the digital watches 30-40 years ago.

Now plasma, that's real cool stuff. We were taught in school that there are three states of matter: solid, liquid, and gas. Well if you super heat the gaseous state of an element until ions are stripped off you get a plasma! That's the 4th state of matter. I have no idea what the 5th state would be...does anyone out there know?
Hi, I think the 5th state was Connecticut!

I better quit, or no one will invite me to their barbeque.

I was thinking after the 4th state it would go up up and away with the 5th dimension.

I remember from Georgia History in the 5th grade that I live in the 13th state. Just made it under the wire.

Now quantum (sp?) physisist (SP?) have come up with something like 11 deminsions and they think they have it all figured out. Now why is that the magic number? This membrane theory they have seems a little two demesional for that or have they done away with that theory, too? They keep changing their theories so fast I can't keep up. At one time they decided there was no big bang and the last I heard they said the big bang occurred when two of their membranes collided. I wonder what they smoke in these think tanks.

Somehow some of the above comments about Blinker Fluid reminded me of something that happened to my sister, who may be the original blond (although she's a brunette).

She was complaining about their power bill to a friend who worked for the power company. Her friend asked her if they had any empty light sockets in their house. He went on to say that this is a common cause of high electric bills because the electricity leaks out of the empty socket. She dutifully screwed bulbs into all the sockets. Shortly after this she was serving as camp nurse at a church youth camp. One day she and some friends were standing at the snack shack when she looked above the head of one of the pastors and saw AN EMPTY SOCKET! She excitedly notified him of the peril he was in, why he could be electrocuted by that electricity that was leaking out. Although this happend more than thirty years ago, she's never lived it down.

She also swallowed what a doctor at the hospital told her when she had been late several days due to a slow leak in a tire. Doc asked her how long it had been since she'd changed the air in her tires. When she asked the station attendant how much it cost to change the air, he went of in a huff. She went home and complained to her pastor husband about the rude attendant! He hasn't let her forget that one.
