We better watch it. If Orange Krate sees that he'll write a script and have me building an exploding kart.

The cocaine joke- it's been a few years. So long I don't remember the name or the state, but a black governor in a northern state- ( Chicago...New York. .IDK) got busted for cocaine. The name Barry rings a bell- but other than that, I got nothing? Maybe someone else can fill in the blanks. ...

And where's the downside of this idea?

It should be fairly easy I think...
get an old seized engine you won't be able to revive (or you don't mind to) and cut the case to pieces.
reassemble using light glue and stick some fireworks in...
you can let it explode over and over again.
just make sure you bench test the amount of fireworks

Should look great on tape

Exploding kart? Or just feed you enough caffeine and left over Holiday candy and film that?

Going back to the "Hitchhikers Guide"; in one scene, Ford Prefect describes his 'semi cousin' Zaphod as being dangerous; something about how when he goes to pieces, it happens so fast that people get hit by the shrapnel...... Of course, there's also the Muppet Labs experiment where Dr. B. Honeydew hands poor Beaker a cup of pure caffeine in an experiment to find out how much caffeine is TO MUCH caffeine.....

Cocaine..... I thought it was white guy from Toronto.....



Years ago at the motor shop, we needed to test a motor for the insulation properties(it was a return on warranty) to see what was going on. well it was funky some how, but it was no good. So sure enough to see a catastrofic failure to ground at 600v on a stator ..... we jammed a screwdriver in the slot(and removed it) put it on a pallet and set it ablaze. We ramped up the power from 115v to 600v3ph.
first is sparked like a taser, then louder, the when we hit the HV it sizzled then went bang...... really cool, kinda like the tele pole transformers but really quieter.
good times..


Sorry probably going to confuse our Indian friend.....

stay calm... and carry on......

The first big job I found out of high school/ trade school was at a shop where we built automated assembly lines and machines. At that time, our parent company hadn't found a permanent home for us, so we were in rented quarters...

On the day in question, the two trainees below me were out, so I got bumped back down to the errand boy position. As I was coming around the corner of the building we were in, the three phase power lines leading to our building jumped around 3~6 inches...

Long story short, we were testing out/ dialing in a pair of spot/ resistance welding machines for making the steel frames for the then current glass picture tubes for televisions. The best way I can describe what we were doing is this;

Resistance (SPOT) weld BOTH ENDS of two strips of steel, 1 inch wide/ 1/8 inch THICK, with a 1 inch overlap at the exact same time, while the machine next to it resistance welds 1/4" thick corner tabs to the last frame....

45 minutes or so later, when we blew two of the three transformers off the pole, we managed to shut down an 8 1/2 block section of Grand Rapids Michigan..... With a major chemical distributor right across the street, the local officials were definitely less than pleased....

Just going by the translations, I believe this is a class where the outward appearance has to loosely resemble a real tractor that I might actually purchase for use on my family's farm. The actual underpinnings are another story.....

Taking a W.A.G. at the appearance of the unit, I'm guessing it's to resemble one of the Magnum/ Maxxum machines that run Cummings engines.

Since those models came long after the "Old Iron" that I'm loosely familiar with, I have no clue of what the original HP rating was on the engine, but I'm guessing that the internal pressure at TDC was in the range of the yeald point of the iron formula used to cast the block....

Yep, the class calls for "stock" appearance. Must retain so much of the original body work. Its the insides that gets the revamp.
Back in the beginning, Billy Bob bet his neighbor Bubba that his farm tractor was better/tougher than his. Bubba said "Y Hay Yale No! Its a bet!" They commenced to hookin up the tractors back to back. All the neighbors gathered round to watch. Well ,Daisy Mae dropped her hanky and the good ol boys went at it, but to no avail. Neither tractor budged a bit. It was ol half wit Cletus that said to hook up to a skid and keep addin weight till one of em caint pullit..... This was the birth of tractor pulling...
Since then, the tractors go from stone stock to ALL OUT BALLS TO THE WALL 4 NITRO SUCKING DIESEL GIANTS configured side by side,2 pair, 4 inline,inline BUT sideways..... ........ Although the rules and classes have changed along the way, the heart of it remains the same. My tractor can pull more than yours.....
Interestingly enough, we do something simular at work. We will tie 2 "identical" vehicles together, then the drivers punch it at the signal. What ensues is a cloud of smoke n noise, guys running back n forth yelling and screaming, until someone gets dragged away or the tires blow. We have several videos on uTube. .. Ill post a link in a sec.... Its kinda fun..... lol

I think Doug still falls in the "Mostly Harmless" catagory; Jim I think falls somewhere somewhere between the mice and Hot Blacks body guard. Just make sure your escape vehicle doesn't list "Disaster Area" as the owner of record....

Don't be so sure; I have a neighbor that has family in the south. He told me about a taste contest where Lone Star beer came in second in a taste contest; apparently warm cow p!$$ came in first....

Well, I don't know for sure, but as far as I know,
ALL U.S. beers meet the german standards.
Nothing but water, yeast, hop and malt (barley or wheat)
as long as nothing but those ingredients are being used our standards are met.

it's all about ratio...
bavarians for example like their beer a little bit on the chewy side (more yeast than water I think )
I like it more liquid, but with more hop than malt (bitter note.. a pilsener so to say).
Others do not like character at all, and they end up with very little of anything but water and the result is well.. a Miller Genuine Draft

'S all about preferences
