@eetcowie: Seems like I remember some MAD magazine thing...


I keep on forgetting all about MAD magazine until someone mentions it, and then I remember how much I liked it when I was young.

I haven't read one for years now, but I recall being somewhat dissapointed the last time I saw one. Is it really not as funny as it used to be (like SNL doesn;t seem to be the same as in the early days), or is that just me growing old?

Seems like I remember some MAD magazine thing that went something like (say the following out loud) --

"My next-dooor neihbore gots himseelf one uh dem HAM-sandweech radioh's, he says. But it gots too much juice. It wuz turnin' on lights all over dah place that iz turned off! I tol him dat ifn' he didn't quit burnin' my cellar bulbs, heed haf to pay my 'Lectric bill!"

Well, it wouldn't be as much fun for some of us if we did it the same next year. I think that the fuel cell is adequate to power everything so we might just get a second hydrogen tank for it. Actually there's talk of finding a different location next year just to make it more of a challenge. We just need to start planning more than a couple months in advance...

Very interesting -- thanks for sharing -- it seems like a wonderful weekend -- one question -- with regard to the guy who brought the solar panels -- what are you going to do next year? Take them off his roof? LOL
