    Alpine skiing?

    Last season there was a big snow whale on the steepest part of the small hill I patrol at, and the backside of it was right at 45 degrees for about 20 vertical feet (I measured it). I got my edges razor sharp and hit that thing a few dozen times, and man, it seemed like I was going over a cliff...

    Alpine skiing?

    Tuckerman Ravine? That's on my bucket list; I doubt I'll have the stones to go off the headwall but I'd love to make the trip.

    Every version I'd ever heard before was done as an upbeat happy thing like the original. Not Jane.

    Favorite female singers

    I've seen many good submissions so far. I'd like to mention two incredibly underrated singers: Bettye Lavette and Jane Monheit. I've seen both live, and was totally floored by them. Bettye LaVette: anyone who can mesmerize Barbara Streisand, Pete Townsend and Roger Daltry is worth paying...

    What was your first concert?

    I was at the Gusman Hall show that was part of Buffet's "You Had To Be There" live album. When I bought the album it turned out to be well named because the show was much better than the album lets on. I'm pretty sure that was before the term "Parrothead" was coined, at least I never heard it...

    What was your first concert?

    I saw ILC in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida about that time, and they sounded great. Killer show at a small venue, front row. They kicked ***. The Stones? Meh...

    Friday oysters

    When I was a kid my dad and I would go out on Biscayne Bay and spend the day crabbing and gathering oysters from the mangrove roots. Good times... fresh limes and Tabasco... my record is about six dozen in a single sitting. I shot my share of nice fat mangrove snapper too.

    Friday oysters

    I suggest shucking oysters at the hinge, there's a lot more structure there so you're less likely to break the shell. I use a wide flat-tip screwdriver that I've thinned down at the tip a little bit, get the point in there, twist and it pops right open.

    Anniversary Contest - TEN years!

    Congratulations! Five years is a damn long time. I was thinking along the same lines. I got clean when I was 26, and in 2013 celebrated my 26th anniversary clean. Half my life... it still amazes me. Scott, congratulations on ten years. Not many of us get to accidentally turn a hobby into a...

    Cutting-Edge Research Shows How Hair Dulls Razor Blades

    Unfirtunately, getting photos at a high enough magnification to allow a meaningful assessment of edge condition isn't as easy as it sounds - and that still wouldn't give much insight into wear mechanisms.

    Well, I've been an engineer at GM for the last thirty years, and can assure you that I've never, ever heard anything like that.

    Cutting-Edge Research Shows How Hair Dulls Razor Blades

    Patents aren't the only thing in play, though. A huge part of metallurgy involves processes, and processes are amenable to protection by being held as trade secrets. Trade secrets are forever, they don't expire, you just have to be careful to keep them secret. Heck, you can greatly improve...
