There has to be an easier way to make 200 dollars than begging. ;D

You know I give YouTubers a bunch of crap. I have to say I like your videos for their content and for your presentation. I have only watched a couple so far so that opinion could change. ;)

Any crap I sling your way, Del, is in jest.

Houston froze over again.  They shut everything down.  I spent my morning playing Dragon Warrior in bed.  It ruled.

If you can read this, it means Photobucket's money grab ruined my signature photos.

It was a degree here yesterday. One. Lousey. Stinkin. Degree.

BUT
This is the Chuff thread, and I got in a bomb-ass workout with my buddy and finished off some projects related to keeping pipes from freezing in this mostly permeable army house - so chuff-on!

Hey now, it was 31 when I was driving around earlier.  One car had slid around and smashed into the barriers on a bridge.  Someone else added insult to injury and apparently tore off their front end driving around them.  Major road at noon.  No owners, police cars, or tow truck in sight.  I was grateful I drive a small car.

And youíre laughing now, but how many kids and old people die in your town when it gets above 95?

-17 (no windchill) yesterday morning here, it will be +49 today. 

For those in the south, this weather means emergency travel only, stocking up on bottled water, calling friends to make sure their heat worked and they didn't freeze to death, etc.
For us "northerners" it means we should wear our "big coat".

dkersten gets it.  If anyone wants to know what Michigan weather is like just Google 'Michigan weather meme'.

This one is my favorite...



To my knowledge no one has died of heat related issues in Michigan over the past year.  Could be wrong.  On a side note I thought The Day After Tomorrow was a documentary about Michigan weather until I saw Dennis Quaid starring in it.

Fixed my electric lawnmower today.  Turns out a wire had popped out of one of the brushes.  Simple repair but satisfying.  Out enjoying my backyard now.

FEMA is closed, too, so thousands of people in Houston are ---fouled up beyond all recognition--- tomorrow.  Reconstruction will come to a dead halt.

Lots of federal deadlines in the next week or so.  Thatíll be disruptive and Iím sure Iíll spend hours telling people exactly how many weeks left before I terminate them.

Anyway, itís been nonstop headaches since December 2016.  The new normal.

Haha... yeah, those internet accomplishments.  One of my accounts got "commentor executed" on Gawker but the guilty post was obnoxious so I couldn't tell anyone about it. 

But hey, I was on Gawker alongside Hulk Hogan's dick!   :lol

I've purposefully tried to be as big an ---uvula--- on Kotaku as possible, but my posts keep getting liked?  I feel like it's some sort of double secret reverse trolling or something.

So finally got a hydrometer.  Turns out my cider is 15.5% across three batches.  That explains an awful lot.

 :dizzy:

Started up 4 more gallons tonight....

I took all the remnants of juice, combined into approximately a pint in a half gallon jug.  Added enough sugar to get it to a potential 20%, and mixed in yeast nutrient and distillers yeast.  It takes a LOT of sugar to get to a potential 20%.  Anyway, used a soldering iron to burn a hole in the plastic cap and shoved in an airlock.  Should only take a few days to ferment.

Spoiler: if you screw up distillation, you can make methanol instead of ethanol

The cure for methanol poisoning is ethanol.  You don't "accidentally make" methanol, it's present in homemade booze but negated by the ethanol.  Only an issue if you distill it over a flame and don't toss out the first jug.  Not an issue with freeze distillation.

Throwing out the head while distilling was also called ĎThe Bobbitt Measureí in the early 90ís.

Met the brew master from 8th Wonder today at the home brew store.  It was weird, they couldnít sell or serve beer, but could nod at the cold cans of their product and empty cups sitting on the counter.  My buddy bought a Fermentasaurus.  Weíre leveling everything up.

I picked up a new cab for my arcade room. No lucky deals here. This is the most I have paid for a machine by double.

Sometimes you just have to pay.



The side art is a little rough. The coin button annoys me, and will be removed. All of my machines take quarters.

The game plays great and the monitor is beautiful.

At it narrowest its 9 miles wide, so thats a great guess!
I live in Delaware but I currently work in Pennsylvania , now I'll live and work in the same state, hence the shorter commute.    Its still going to suck because I'll be on the only major highway right at 5pm every day.  Good news for you guys is, I probably wont be on the forums very much during the day.

This new place is acting like they want to groom me to take over the lead in a few years, we'll see. For now, more money for pinball games!
