Anything that can't be accomplished with gaffer tape or WD40 is not worth doing, Ex Finn.
You forgot the hammer!

One of the all time great Lee Hays and Pete Seeger songs.

Awfully quiet in here... I wonder where everyone went? The Mark of Hocir does not appear to be on the new format-that-will-not-be-named camera. That means it could be anywhere... It could be lurking behind YOU! (dum-dum-DUMMMMMM!)

I have from extremely reliable sources that the above mentioned unmentionable camera, when the shutter is released, will make a very distinct PFFT sound.

As for quiet, my employer is currently conducting a research project where he is trying to find out if it is actually possible to kill his employee purely by increasing the workload. I'm fairly certain he is getting close to succeed.

Hope I'll survive just one more week. Then my date of execution will be pushed a few weeks into the future by a belated summer vacation

Of course, that won't save me from the dreaded hociR - it will certainly be in my carry-on all the way on my three-stage 21 hour flight

My employer has a similar project, except they are trying to find out if prolonged exposure to increasing levels of dumb will kill you. It's sort of like Alzheimers, only from the outside in.

I think he's got a hangup on war movies. "Failure is not an option!"

Or was that basketball movies?

I think that's the motto for, er, well, um, other movies.

I think "Apollo 13" popularized "Failure is not an option". Although, when I worked for <large aerospace / government contractor>, we figured it wasn't an option because it was included as a standard feature.

From the time when people could sing in tune. Without the use, or rather abuse, of auto-tune (wikipedia). That terrible, nauseating electronic sound of "vocalists" these days is just sad.

I suppose that means I'm officially Old and Grumpy™
