Re: A Contrarian View of Miss-identification

I don't care how they address me as long as it sounds respectful.

Re: toilet paper use calculator.

The stack of toilet paper in the house could last for about two weeks but in these uncertain times I like to have more margin. Only one time before I was close to critical in the field of toilet paper. For years I used to go on holiday and camped in the wild. On my bike I had very limited storage sp...

Re: toilet paper use calculator.

I'm not sure if that calculator is still correct in the current situation. Governments and other well-meaning institutions have urged people to stock up on non-perishable goods like beans. The change in the consumption pattern may change the basic parameters of the calculator. The emphasis on those ...

Re: The Perceptible Willy

From the beginning I tried to present myself as a male in a skirt. With the kilts at first and later A-line skirts, Little Willy was more or less a hidden object. Only with a stiff head wind did the fabric bulge a little. With lighter fabric and more pencil-type skirts, the bulge became more pronoun...

Re: Encounters of the silly kind

McDenim clan [/color] I like it. Almost worth having a kilt with all of the elements custom made, except in denim just for the fun of provoking the opportunity! :D I started my adventure with skirts in 2013. First in secret but after a lucky stroke, in 2014 my wife asked how kilts would fit me afte...

Re: Encounters of the silly kind

Around noon the mother of a friend of my wife asked me to bring her to the grocery store. That friend has a serious lung problem and is on oxygen. Their grocery is the same as ours so within not even 24 hours in between I was at the register again. The weather was even nicer than yesterday so I was ...

Re: Encounters of the silly kind

The weather was very nice this afternoon. Quite unexpected. When one weather system moves faster and another slower than predicted, the weather might change dramatically for a short time. With 15C (60F) it was really nice. I had to go to the Home Depot to get my last batch of wood to finish a projec...

Not a skirt

With the Corona Virus on everybody's mind, I wanted to do some preparation. If the quarantine rules are getting stricter, I wanted to know how easy it is to make your own face mask. I checked the Internet and found a lot of tutorials. Being an engineer, I have the urge to improve things so I combine...

Re: Corona Virus

I don't want to put a flea in somebody's ear but I was just thinking that the wearing of face masks is very common in the current troubling period. It must be a paradise for bank robbers. Face masks all over the place. You walk into a bank, do your business, you walk out and blend in with the rest o...

Re: Corona Virus

Compared to Europe and the Far East, in the USA there still is a lot of freedom of movement. In France and Spain you need a form from the police to leave the house and your outside activities are very limited. The Netherlands are (yet) more relaxed, they limit customers into supermarkets at the rate...

Re: Gas prices...

Another friend has abandoned her plans to visit Europe this year. My big trip of the year was to be a family reunion in June. I suspect that it will be cancelled. I hadn't quite got around to making any reservations. You are not the only one. I had planned a 4-week visit to Europe in June. I'm afra...

Re: Gas prices...

There was a time when Americans could build a Liberty ship in a little over 4 days, when they made bombers and fighter planes faster than they used to make cars. I believe those days are gone. If you give away those tools and experience to other countries, it is very hard to come back at a competiti...

Re: Corona Virus

In the USA about a 100 persons die on a daily base from gun violence. I don't see much resolve to do something about it. In the USA about a 100 persons die on a daily base in traffic, about 2 to 3 times more than in most developed countries. I don't see much resolve to do something about it. Now we ...
