Them Old Jokes

Recommended Posts

In Australia a company that makes recycled toilet paper (that is, toilet paper recycled from paper used in offices etc - not the other thing . . .) is called "Give a Crap". Our neighbours swear by it.

 

But so many euphemisms - "toilet" means grooming yourself and "lavatory" means a place to wash.  And bathroom . . . what?

 

I like the French word pissoir. Means what it says.

My 94 year old WWII friend calls it writing a letter to the president.

I never understood why people say they "don't give a crap". I flush mine.

That's a cool looking truck. Somewhat of a refined Mad Max kind of thing. Maybe Egilman needs to abandon his Smokey And The Bandit truck and switch over to this one!

What gets to me right now, is that we may see something like that.  There's been at least two trucks carrying the paper that have hijacked in the last week or two.  I'm hoping that was fake new.

 

Anyway.... this may end up being a pastime...

Had to get a jump to start my truck yesterday.

Yeah.  My little Audi Q2 is over 2 years old, has 2600 miles on the clock, and keeps telling me it’ll die on me if I don’t drive a few hundred miles and charge up the battery.  BUT the lockdown rules won’t let me.  GAAAAGH!

(I’ve got a  battery charger in the workshop.  I knew how to work it 40 years ago, but when I lift the car’s bonnet I can’t see any terminals to connect it to!

Does the battery not  have a plastic cover over the terminals ?

 

 

Just checked  some of the Audi's  have a compartment under the floor well inside the front of the cabin  - think you pull the carpet/mat back and lift a cover to see the battery.

OC.

That's what I was thinking. Either that or google.

Probably.  But it’s all so frightening.  Back in my day, there weren’t electronic things going on.  Just electrics.  I understood electrics.  Is it safe to lift the plastic covers and attach electric clips to electronic things?

Yes, my wife's car is a few years older - 2016 - but I had to peel them back to replace the sound system with something I could hear.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
