  4. Oh, yeah? Well, my great-grandfather Culver founded Culver city and invented
    the original hand-crank can-opener. Too bad he didn't leave any of that city to

    And I travel to the Safeway in Damascus (or as is sometimes mispronounced by
    kids as "Damn Ass Cuss"), sometimes, living as I do on Sunshine Valley Rd
    towards Boring. Now, that's two great city names in Oregon, for you!

  5. I assume ol' Jim ain't bragging. It's more of an open and honest
    admission of failure on the part of a relative that deserves some
    merit for forthrightness.
  6. Oh, yeah? Well my brother is one of the most famous magicians amongst
    magicians. Unknown to the general public, but often invited to royal
    parties. Not available to the US anymore, he's not willing to travel
    to that place, under the current situation.


    Thanks, Frank.

    Maybe so, but you're Paul Burridge.

    I'm still waiting for him to slow down enough that I can keep up with him.

    Maybe in 2014.
  9. I read in that Jonathan Kirwan
    Had any mystical experiences on your way to the supermarket? (;-)

    Damascus doesn't have a post office, so our mailing address was "Boring
    OR". It didn't take me long once I hit college to learn that when asked
    where I was from I should answer "Boring" to the US citizens and
    "Damascus" to the middle easterners. Almost always good for a double take.
  11. Indeed.

  12. Yup. I expect a Damascus PO soon, though. :)
    hehe. I used to teach at PSU for a time as an adjunct prof for a time, but I
    was actually born in Portland and lived my early life in Tigard (1800 pop., when
    I moved there) and Beaverton areas (old airport, now gone) and also for a number
    of years on a 19 acre filbert farm in Orchards, WA. (My dad is buried over

    I've been here now for two years and am very, very pleased with the people
    around here. Nice folks and very kind. I can also hardly escape a store
    without us sharing our lives and events with the checker, too. ;) Only
    exception has been a time when I sat in and listened to a judge here and she
    scares the daylights out of me -- I watched what appeared to me to be a careless
    and downright capricious decision making -- completely unsupportable on the
    facts I listened to (and I heard the entire presentation in court.) That
    worries me, should I ever find myself there. But then, that was an isolated
    experience for me. But I've also watched a great many cases in Multnomah and
    Washington Counties without seeing anything like it, too. So I haven't put it
    into a context quite yet.

    Big deal. If kevin did the same he'd only save himself more revolting
    revalations about your sordid, hopeless, dysfunctional family. you're
    an ij't as we used to say in ireland, mr. thompson.

    Well, I was curious to know what a ij't was, weren't you?
    Or did you already know? Hmm, idiot? Naw, no subtlety,
    that would be mere mudslinging.

    As much as I hate to interrupt your plonkspree, well.. of course you know
    what they say about politicians. <BG>

  18. I read in that Winfield Hill <[email protected]_rowland-
    The square root of minus one multiplied by its time derivative and by
    time. Identically zero.
  19. It must be getting awfully crowded in there. ;-)
    Yes, that's correct.
    I don't agree that Jim's an idiot, though. He has a *lot* to
    contribute if he only chose to do so. That silly 3-stage amp circuit
    he posted the other day was an interesting excerise in analysis, so
    why can't we have more of that type of thing from him? Interesting,
    on-topic posts like that are dwarfed by a mass of irrelevant nonsense
    about his blasted barbecue, his grand-daughter, his pet dog, his
    daughters, his wefare recipient daughter-in-law, some buzzard that
    landed on his blasted barbecue and God only knows what else!
    C'mon, Jim: post something about electronics!!
