How is it this seller has a 100% feedback rating?

Yeah, I'd be hard pressed to give 88 cents for it in that condition.

And for the seller to give it a rating of 8/10 is ridiculous.

Browsing some Zuiko lenses on eBay I found this:

OLYMPUS OM-SYSTEM ZUIKO AUTO-FISHEYE 8mm f/2.8 Manual Focus Lens | eBay











Wait.

$880 for a lens that has fungus? What is the guy smoking?

Once they fire that thing up, Muons will be suffering from a fatal attraction to it.

I don't get it.

I ordered some memory for an older computer I am resurrecting. It shipped from Illinois last week, USPS Priority Mail. Should have been delivered here today.

Here is the tracking:



Did I miss something?

It was already in Chicago, last week. Why did it arrive there again today?

Does it have to go through Chicago twice?

Sheesh!

I think those postal workers need to be drug tested.

Having spent the majority of my life as a mechanic I have learned that careful selection of the proper tools is paramount for every job.

So, even if a chainsaw could be used to slice bacon, it wouldn’t do the best work.

Indeed, a proper knife, expertly sharpened and honed will produce perfect slices of delicious bacon. I bet that Bob could elaborate on knife choices here.

They are. And the single speed versions will make muscular legs real fast. But hey, the entire factory is flat, with no elevation changes. The outside areas are sloped for precipitation runoff, but those slopes are very minimal, so don't present any difficulty getting around.

Some trikes have three speed drive hubs, but there is a 5 mph speed limit inside the factory, and 15 mph outside, so the gear changes are pointless.



And rightly so, since a majority of the workers are fat, in spite of the trikes, and really wouldn't look too attractive in Lycra.

There is a guy in 777 final assembly who rides a bike to work everyday, wearing shorts over his Lycra bike togs. He even has one of those silly caps that bike riders wear.

Looks pretty silly on the assembly line.

At least he wears the shorts over that revealing Lycra, eh?

They had Worksman industrial bicycles for getting around the factory when I started there. But too many numbskulls kept having accidents, so they got rid of them and got Worksman tricycles. Heavy, (mostly) single speed tanks, with baskets or trunks.

I guess manufacturing their own bikes just didn't cross the minds of those who engineer the workplace.

And another ancient, albeit still viable in today's world, DC3. In fact many are still flying today, all over the world.

Looks like it needs sandblasted first.

The Bell System is long gone, along with long distance charges.

They don't make cars like this anymore.
