There's a message in this, but I'll be damned if I can figure it out!

Look up "Griffith crack length". That'll explain it. Basically, a crack can slowly creep and get longer over an indefinite period, but once it reches a critical length, it sprints all the way to breaking point.

Is that a Griffith crack or a Griffin crack? The loud bang was probably caused by too much 'loud' in the closet. Years ago, some professor was talking about implant access to mega-computers, and he asked, "What would happen if we had the equivalent of 100 years of thought in every decision we make?" I replied, "No more Hawaiian shirts?" And yes, I was wearing one at the time.

Clearly he doesn't need to get rid of shirts, he just needs a stronger closet rod to hang them on.

I just wish I'd discarded the old shirts before everything crashed around my ears

Nice thought -- but I really do need to get rid of the ones that don't fit (which is 90% these days) -- rather than them sitting in my closet, someone else could be enjoying them (there are some really nice ones)

It happened to me once. It's quite the rumble! I wouldn't be caught dead in a Hawaiian shirt, though. Besides, they only come in sizes too large for me....
