haha, fun with argon, we used to scare new guys on the flightline with it, have them screw a tank into a missile and not tell them its supposed to hiss loud, when it hissed, we would yell something like "Oh god, run!" and haul ass and watch them about pee there pants.

If the liquid nitrogen causes the the sweat on your arm to freeze you might be a little to close.

Anyone ever work with Quartz lights? Turns out that if you touch the bulb with your bare hands before you install it, then it won't work. In fact there's a chance it could explode in your hand. How was I supposed to know? Here I am with perfectly good voltage at the lamp and two different brand-new bulbs that don't do shit. There weren't even any special care instructions on the packaging. God I felt stupid--an electrician who can't even change a lightbulb.

The same thing happens with gels and fernels. I learned the hard way as well while replacing our stage lights in high school.

A quartz light generates a LOT of lumens for its size by sucking up inordinate amounts of power, all instantaneously. You can't plug it in energized and you can't touch it or the oil in your skin will cause the glass to crack under all the sudden heat from the inside and all your precious bright light making gas is gone.

More Smitty wisdom, from the Quotebook:

"You know, the ship oughta quit buyin' this 'John Wayne' toilet paper. Know why it's called 'John Wayne' toilet paper? 'Cuz it's rough and tough and won't take shit off nobody. By the time you get your ass clean, you've already rubbed off the first three layers of epidermis back there. Why does my ass have to suffer?"

You're welcome.

Never Never Never steal a sip from a red neck's coke can....but for the grace of God go I.

Also from the immortal wisdom of my brother:
Stay away from Thunderbird Wine. One minute your gettin' drunk and everything is fine....the next minute you're trying to f*** a cactus.

Who can forget the Smitty classic:

"A bird in the hand is a bird indeed!"

Here's some from Groucho Marx:

"Military justice is to justice what military music is to music."

And from the ever eloquent Mike Tyson:

"My style is impetuous, my defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious! I want your heart, I want to eat his children! Praise be to ALLA!"

That was at the getting out celebration for Sam the Eagle and I up in the mountains, I believe. I remember getting realllly stoned that night.

Anyway some words of wisdom from my dad, commenting on some white trash 3-toothed foul-mouthed bitty in the parking lot of a Pep Boys:

Quote:
Man, I wouldn't fuck that with my dogs dick!


I could barely drive home after that one.
