    I've always liked the Asimov short-short story that ends: "A niche in time saves Stein."

    When Dr Asimov showed up in the emergency room, the admitting nurse asked him why he was there.. he replied "Isaac"

    Ok, it's a stretch, but it didn't break

    Shouldn't this be in Pun and Games?

    When this thread was started, it was Babbling all the way down. Fun & Games is a more recent addi(c)tion to the board.

    Metallurgically speaking, to coin a phase, this thread rocks!

    SMEaton,

    On a sidenote, perhaps only a sidequarternote, do the capitals in your user name refer to the Scale Model Equipment Company, producer of precision turntable tonearms?

    Whoa, tonearms!

    Where's the anti-skating?

    The essence of ultra-high-fidelity, until a dust bunny arrives and fouls the stylus.

    Turntables!

    Wow!

    (and flutter...)

    The anti-skating is on the other side of the tonearm. Dust bunnies are stopped by the damper brush on the front of the cartridge. It's a tonearm with very pronounced opinions: it comes with a pro-tractor and anti-skating. No middle of the road for that one, it only cares about the groove. Very uplifting as well, at least when you turn the lever.

    It's a nice thing. But I'll skip the rest of the explanation. Suffice to say I ejected the CD player into the jitter box [correction bits] litter box. It was so negative, it only cared about anti-aliasing.

    See you laser!



    For the record: I still have and regularly use my CD player.

    Nicolas, Please! I would think this is punnier, given my previous post (serendipitous, even!).

    Hmm... the other day I walked by a guy and gal having an argument, all in sign language. The woman aburptly got up and stalked off. Apparently she didn't like his tone-of-arm.

    Gotta hand it to you since it signs like you put your finger on it! What a fickle guy!

    But that's fate.

    I guess he should have read the manual before getting the thumbs-up. He probably felt pretty disjointed, or at least a little dislocated.

    I'm sorry, I'd never heard of that SME so I couldn't make a pun with that one (actually it was a serious question but anyway ) as I was raised up with the good advice not to make funs of things that I didn't know about. When I was very young, about 4 years old, my mother told me not to laugh at things I'd never heard of. She said that would make me look ignorant. I found "ignorant" a very funny word.

    But you're right that refering to a mining company goes far deeper than refering a tonearm, which remains very superficial. Very good you went to the bottom of this. In contrary, I merely scratched the surface of this SME thing.

    Groovy... I wasn't sure if you were serious or just giving it a spin.
    After checking out the website for SME tonearms, I'm wondering if they've ever considered manufacturing precision telescope clock drives? I mean, does their company revolve around turntable equipment?

    Then they can hire some astrologers to help. I hear they are now part of a non-prophet organization. [not mine]

    We'll never get to the stars unless we develop a warp, orion, drive to a high degree. But.. this thread is experiencing con-fusion.

    who here remembers those demolition derby cars - that would snap together, then explode when run into a solid object. I always wondered why they weren't modeled after the Nova...

    Boy, building an Orion would be a blast! Man, a starship like that would be the Bomb, plus if we sent out a colony then we wouldn't have to die, son.

    of course, we never will build one.. sphere of all those nuclear bombs in space, you know. Ring me, though, when somebody developes a Brussard ramjet.

    this is a honey of a thread. Some of the yarns are clearly fabrication, but others weave a tremendous tale with twists that are never expected.
