My lecture on quantum physics spontaneously erupted in to jell-o wrestling. I tend to have that effect.

If you want to fire something out of a cannon at an SOB with total deniability the simple answer is a unplucked frozen chicken. Then quickly go outside and point at the sky.

And get that on film while you are at it.

Low orbit chicken insurance... Should have bought it...

Oh good. It's not me, it's you. Also, now I have someone to ask my Jello-wrestling question after all these years: Is the color of the Jello important and does it have to be matched to something? If not, why doesn't everyone just use plain old gelatin? The Jello palette has never struck me as titillating.

MY restoration thread, when it happens, is going to be sex, sex, sex. To explain why the blankety-blank thing is taking so long.

if it envolves sex and it takes too long you are either over qualified or you don't know what you are doing.

Hey Dark,

While you polish away is the rest of the team doing all the structural stuff before the weather changes? Are you the rest of the team?

Yikes..

We are with you in spirit..

Thanks... Yes I am the team

I put four 4' tie down rods in the ground and I am planning to move her out from under the trees until the storm passes

She seems really solid now she is mounted on the frame. The only concern is the incomplete shell

I agree with this entirely. Then again, I have an 18' trailer. The window frames are the only thing I hate. Everything else is easy and fairly quick with the side-polisher and a gray bar. I don't know what everyone's whining about with polishing.

Dark, you should be far enough west to avoid hurricane damage, but wind could lift the shell by getting under it through the open frame area. Really high winds could blow windows out from the inside. Maybe an open door could relieve inside pressure should the hurricane send some extra wind your way.

there's a 6 inch open door the entire outside perimeter of this here high boy. i doubt pressure differential will exist, but ya never can be too sure. Actually, gene, the reason I am posting is to be kept abreast of the ongoing progress of Talluminum Falcon.

I was debating windows open or closed.
I do have four holes in the top so there may be a harmonica effect for a few blocks

If that thing starts to lift off, will we see news footage of you hanging by the lower bars in hopes to steady the rig?
