Should I go to the great Squirrelhouse in the sky unexpectedly, I have a will that leaves Otis' care and supervision to some lucky person here ...
I thought Otis is supervising you?

I'm in charge of food and accommodations, which includes bacon and beer for Otis and his Army. It's not a job many would want.

Otis is still searching the internet for those "Bacon Seeds" posted a page or two back. He says he would prefer them over sunflower seeds....me too!

Maybe he'd be interested in a Spaghetti tree instead? Broadcast on the venerable BBC, so it must be true

Spaghetti were little known in the UK at the time, and so was their composition, so the BBC actually received a number of calls and letters afterwards by people asking how to grow and care for their own Spaghetti trees

I wonder if the fact that the K-3 has been discontinued is at all relevant to why I own't buy a K-3?

Obviously not...
Think of all the lenses you could have!

Not quite that cheap.

Come on, think more like a businessperson. Buy the island, lease it to someone for an appropriate (read "high") price, use the profits to buy all the lenses you want. And you still have an island.

Is that one of the Lanard "The Corp" figures? The headsculpt looks like one of theirs. They were making pretty good GI Joe knock-offs at one time, but have gradually replaced clothing with molded-on junk. I think the last ones I saw at Wal-Mart had a one-piece body with legs that didn't even bend. It's depressing that my Marx 12" action figures that are older than I am have more articulation than what is being sold today.
