Now, now boys, don't lose your heads!


My favorite sword definitely doesn't say hociR. It says "Stainless steel and made in Japan or something like that..." It looks pretty much like this and yes, it's REAL. It has a finely sharpened edge. It's not some sissy "hang it on the wall" replica, and yes, I do know how to use it, grin.

Why, them!



W I D E L O A D

Mirror extensions are required to provide visibility to the sides and rear of oversize loads. If the Revenue Ranger stands by the back corner and you can't see how many fingers he is holding up, you get a Roadside Driving Award, plus he shuts you down until the defect is corrected.

The ones on that truck were a bit odd looking. I don't have any real control over what the guys in the shop come up with, but those were better that the ones I had on the previous truck.

Totally useless.



The ones on the current truck were fabricated by a different guy, and are much better.

Fully adjustable from 9 feet to 16 feet wide.
They must vibrate like crazy going down the road, too much for hociR SR to handle.
Yet an other reason not to buy the K3.

The ones on the Junkliner that you commented on, yes, the funky ones on the Guacamole Express (the green truck) were useless, but the ones on Monstro (the black truck) are very good. Sure, when they get out far enough to see around a 14 to 16 foot wide load the wiggle some, but not so much that it is a problem.

The toughest thing was to remember that they were sticking out there when I pulled into a fuel island.

I have started many of them.
The ones that made me cringe a bit, even though I was on the dull end of them, were the 16ga 3" needles on the pre filled syringes of APPG we used to treat GC. One 2.4 million unit dose in each cheek.
The fun part was that they had to be kept refrigerated until use, then warmed prior to injection. We used to make the patient hold them, one in each hand, for 20 minutes to warm them. That gave them plenty of time to reevaluate their dating strategy while staring at the needles.

But only in the "stupid"* video mode SR. Curse you hociR for inserting stupidity into our cameras!

Oh, yeah...been on the receiving end several times. They prefer to have those in for the major orthopedic stuff.

Damned straight. And those old, solid-metal Taks can be used as ammunition in ballistas to fend-off hociR attacks should they come.
QuoteOriginally posted by stevebrot Quote
Indeed! Use Rikenons instead!

(...did I really say that? I am hearing small rumblings on the shelf from the Rikenons. Thy outnumber the Taks 2:1...)

Hey! Put my lens back where you found it!








Go away for a week and not only do I have to read 17 pages, when I get to the end I find out Poiters somehow mentally moved my 50 all the way to France. Tried for months to get me to send all of my 50's over there but I wouldn't do it for money. But I guess that'll be OK so long as he tells me the trick (just me - none of these other hociRs) - I want to move some silver FA Limiteids this way.

Orthopedic surgeries are downright brutal. Those guys are really more like mechanics than doctors. Their surgical trays look like a scene from a horror movie. Big bone saws, hammers, drills, plates, screws, NAILS!
