We gotta get some hospital beds in here, and lazy-boys, and a BIG screen TV!

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Does anyone here still remember Morse code? When I was a kid, I began learning it because you needed to pass a Morse code test to receive a ham operator's license. Since I lacked the funds for a Heathkit radio, I gave up the idea. Moreover, I tried listening and deciphering code operators on a short- wave radio but they were so fast, I was lucky to decipher the first few words.  monkey

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

We had a conversation once in #! OffTopic, carried out in morse code. Sometimes it's fun not getting a life!

I worked for a research organisation where a lot of the jargon was a holdover from morse transmissions, when remote field parties used it. "Q" codes are a 3 letter shorthand for a variety of Q and A's, so to ask where someone was, for example, we'd just say "QTH" ie "What is your position?"

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

^ We should start a monthly thread for that - I often thought it would be a good idea on #!
(It could be a source for that cowsay quotes thing that is going on)

Then we can have an annual competition for the Winner big_smile

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Morse code - no ... but Flag semaphore, so as not to be confused with semaphore (programming).  Not to be confused with Sheldon's "Fun with Flags" either.

@hhh - I'll second that! - for November!

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

lol  lol full head of hair  lol  lol
You're kidding right.  I started 'gaining' forehead in my late 20's when a 'hairless hole' on the crown of my head started appearing.  My forehead continued to grow right into the hole - now it's a grey/white horseshoe around the back from each 'sideburn' that goes down to a beard and moustache.

Almost like I could use your avatar as well.  smile

Re: The Over-the-Hill-BunsenGang Thread

Dead men walking as in the 2005 film or the 1995 film?

Either way I guess it's better than The Walking Dead.

I guess our snoring chased everyone away.

Well, this morning I abseiled over the top of a 200' Cornish sea cliff, all on my own, in torrential rain and a howling gale, carrying a crowbar! (Yesterday I couldn't retrieve a piece of costly climbing protection).

I got it out of the crack, though not before some deep breathing, counting to 10, and convincing myself that I've been in worse situations many times before.

I think that I'm not as young as I used to be, and I DESERVE a snooze by the fire! I'm now by the fire, and about to have the snooze big_smile
