That's funny Steve! I picked up a new toilet from Lowes yesterday too. The Superflush 3000! I'm kidding, it's not called that but I made my wife LOL when I said it.

This toilet can flush 24 golf balls at once! 

Toilet Flushing Demo: Champion 4 Right Height Elongated Toilet - Golf balls, cat litter, and more

Gotta install it today.

But, could it flush a Chuck Norris sized log? ::)

Chuck Norris doesn't flush.  He scares the sh!t out of it.

When I look at the baseball box scores it seems as if the winning team always has at least half as many runs as it does the sum of its hits and the opponents errors and the losing team always has less than half as many runs as the sum of its hits and the opponents errors.  So if a team is not producing a run for every two hits, it's not going to win the ballgame.  Bases on balls give a team the opportunity to add to its run total without affecting its number of hits and double plays take away a hit without producing a run.  There's also a pitcher giving up no hits early in the game but losing game because the opponent scores on a 3 run homer after a couple of walks.

If I can find game numbers, I want to use statistics to see if the hypotheses hold and I can predict winners and losers of ball games.

Did the research.  No one has done a paper on this.  Found the data set free on the web.  This week I'll write the abstract and submit.

I had planed on installing the Superflush 3000 yesterday, as I mentioned above. It was SO nice outside and my wife said that maybe we should take a bike ride instead of working, then when we get back maybe have a couple of drinks and fool around.

She's a keeper that one is.    :thumbs:

On my daily commute I drive past a Christian Academy school, nice place with great landscaping.

It never fails that someone pulling out of this place will pull RIGHT OUT in front of me, causing me to brake hard. I'm talking EVERY FREAKIN TIME! I even flash my brights and give the bike a lil weave, making sure that they see me. It doesn't make any difference.

That's very un-Christian like wouldn't you say? I would hope that the kids attending this school are learning a better lesson than the parents. Maybe these 'Christians' feel that they have the right-of-way?

Hypocrites!

I didn't start out flasing 'em. I just thought I'd try it to see what happens. They pull out in front of me even when I'm in the cage.

Do you see someone on some sort of two way radio, signaling them that they see you coming?
I think its a conspiracy.

Now that you mention it, I have noticed someone behind a bush near the entrance to the school. No radio but I think they're using hand signals.

I'll give em a hand signal of my own next time, see how they react to that.

You know, until today I always thought that only guys were stupid enough to wear their pants with the belt line lower than their butts.

I now stand corrected.

Unfortunately you can't unsee something like that.    :o

Brent Brent Brent, I would have absolutely NO problems in looking at such a fine looking woman as you've shown in your pic. Even though her belt line is NOT below her butt, even if it was, I wouldn't have any issues.

The problem that I had was that this woman prolly tipped the scales to the tune of at least 230 lbs and she was VERY masculine, if you know what I mean? Not that there's anything wrong with that mind you.

On the plus side, with her pants hanging so low, there wasn't a muffin top in site.

I'd love to show you a pic similar to what I saw at lunch time, but I won't subject you to such punishment. Besides, I'd have to look at the pics in order to post them and I really don't want to see something like that ever again!   :o

I just found out that I'm getting a 3% pay increase at the end of the month and it's retroactive to the first of the year. Sweet!    8)
