You made me go here too. Pretty nifty IMO
I'd never really gotten the IKEMANIA so many people demonstrate until I saw this little thing (probably linked here by someone like interested_observer) on PetaPIXEL. It really is cool and I want badly to be able to add one to my Equipment List.

Now they've started building an IKEA St. Louis (OMG, you'd think we got Manchester United to move here) so I won't have to go on one of those Chicago pilgrimages like all the other cool, cool IKiddies. Maybe I'll find a way in to the Press Party!!

We get that all the time up in the Pacific Northwet. It rains. Then it freezes before the rain dries out.

Then it snows on top of it.

Kinda like a greased pig.

Then it finishes out with freezing rain a day so later. Joy...

Yuck! Nope. Can't do it. If I leave Alabama, it'll be for somewhere even warmer!

No, Rudolph is GMO, the same as the K-3.

Leaving you with something like this:













Alright, I know, it wasn't in the Pacific Northwet. It was in Montana. That's right next door to the Pacific Northwet though. And I have had worse out there, just didn't have the camera handy!

I doubt a K3 would have helped either.

Maybe some bacon or cheese though. Or some tasty possum stew. Or how about a jar of pickled herring? Oh yeah, that'll do it!

Yup.

Pickled herring.

The answer to all the unasked questions.

Nature's perfect food.

Those gunksicles spun off the lug nuts are pretty cool looking, never seen that before but not cool enough to make me splurge on a K-3!

Gunksickles?

I've had lots of different reactions from people with that photo, but that has got to be the coolest!

I'm gonna have to use that.

But it won't make me get a K3.

Nope.

Not gonna happen.

It reminds me of the old nintendo game spy hunter, with the blades that come out of the wheels. That kind of nostalgia will make me fork over dough for a K-3

OK, I'll accept full responsibility.

But I won't buy a K3 myself.
