  • Its Friday - what are you wearing??

    A stik insect of course... this thing was in our wet room when Nancy found him (or her :? ) - here he (she :? ) is on the wall of the saloon...





    We took him (her :?) outside for to catch some breeze...





    All over the Spring Drive - guess stik insects don't have too much care for time... he (she :? ) was changing colors all the time - like da comelion





    His best move was this, the 'go into an arrow and pretend I'm not here more mega camo mode' - maybe a good one next time you're in the Mall for avoiding that annoying friend that you don't like anymore... or never did.




    With horror I noticed today my Glide King was 3s fast and not in 1 year+ has accuracy been so poor... bear in mind I have NEVER hacked the seconds hand... guess it is probably because I dropped him on the floor yesterday.

    Oh, wait, 'NO' - he's not affected by trifling problems like that. Must have been the Stik Insects fault

      In most cases anorexia is a female malaise I would agree however I am very definitely of the male persusion and I have been afflicted by it for ages now ,eh Nancy so not exclusive to females only. Just call me sticky. On my anorexic wrist today a Breitling colt, God I'm a boring little toad , same watch just a different day .Now ponder this
      when NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300°C.
      The Russians used a pencil. welcome to NZ Hillary

        What kind of pencil do you think they used?

          There are 12 inches on a ruler Queen Victoria was a ruler and she ruled the seven seas. In the seas are fish, fish have fins, the Finns fought the russians, Russians are,for the most part, red. Pencils can sometimes be red and sometimes black the letters on a ruler are black there are 12 inches on a ruler...... How the f#*& would I know that

            Quote from Omega-Fanatic.com:
            "NASA sent two Systems Engineers into downtown Houston to purchase several reputable “off-the-shelf” chronographs to be tested for possible use in space. Five different brands of Chronographs were purchased and returned to NASA for testing. After the first round of tests, two of the five brands were disqualified. And, after the second round of tests, only one wristwatch, the “Omega Speedmaster Professional,” survived. NASA ordered several more watches of each of the brands tested, including 12 Omega Speedmasters. NASA paid the retail price of $82.50 (in 1965 money) for each Speedmaster and arranged for a final series of tests to finally determine the best wristwatch to use in space.

            The tests were completed on March 1, 1965. At the completion of the tests, three of the chronographs from different manufactures were still running, but only the Speedmaster had passed without any of the serious discrepancies encountered with the others. The Omega Speedmaster was adopted by NASA as the “Officially Certified Wristwatch For All Manned Space Missions
            "


            The Russians beat the Americans to put a man in space in 1961, probably because they didn’t even bother to commission a watch for space flight. Yuri Gagarin just wore the Shturmanskie pilots wristwatch that he was issued with from the air force. :roll:
