    Over the halfway point.

    We're flying now.

    I'm not so sure I want to be fly-ing, after all those pics.

    I got nothing. I'm too tired for serious snark. Just glad to be home.

    I got nothin' as well. Been a week of 10 hour days, with 10 or 11 more to go before a day off... I'm getting too old for this stuff.

    Good night all.

    A very low carbon mild steel, similar to the junk strap iron "steel" found on the hardware aisles of those fine establishments, like Gnome Station and Frowe's.

    A36 = mild steel, structural steel.

    As with most steels, A36 has a density of 7,800 kg/m3 (0.28 lb/cu in). Young's modulus for A36 steel is 200 GPa (29,000,000 psi).[2] A36 steel has a Poisson's ratio of 0.32, and a shear modulus of 75 GPa (10,900,000 psi).

    A36 steel in plates, bars, and shapes with a thickness of less than 8 in (203 mm) has a minimum yield strength of 36,000 psi (250 MPa) and ultimate tensile strength of 58,000–80,000 psi (400–550 MPa). Plates thicker than 8 in have a 32,000 psi (220 MPa) yield strength and the same ultimate tensile strength.[1] The Electrical Resistance of A36 is 0.0000153 ohm/cm. A36 bars and shapes maintain their ultimate strength up to 650°F. Afterward, the minimum strength drops off from 58,000 psi: 54,000 psi at 700°F; 45,000 psi at 750°F; 37,000 psi at 800°F.

    Depends on how you mean it. I certainly get burned out on stress and over scheduling.

    There was a time in my life that i stayed "burned out"... But i blame strong indica strains more than "life"

    effing brilliant.

    i'd like to see a close up picture, but i think i have the idea...

    a simple leather thong cutter might do it as well, but PET[E] tears pretty well

    Knob creek rye is fantastic.

    Also, you guys and your mirror blades, I'm jealous. Nice!

    Usually do. Not that there is anything I can really do about it but yeah I know the feeling. There are a couple of times it's worse than others, but yeah I get it. Last time I got that bad off I ended up buying a new suit, a bespoke suit from Seville Row... I don't recommend going that route.

    Well, I was waiting on the dykem to dry and not cutting anything just yet. Next time I'll just cut it up using my best judgement. :D

    My darling wife is an experienced, inveterate and unrepentant smart-ass when it comes to replacing buttons... I am currently wearing BDU pants with a decidedly-not-original button holding my junk in check.


    The future belongs to those mad few who grab it by the ears and press onward. I can't wait to see what you come up with ;)
