I feel someone at the club should cast a net for those "still-kicking fish heads" that macnutt is sending over. Such a sight would deserve a close inspection and perhaps a night on the stage. There may even be a hint of a solution to the cod shortage. Volunteer?

Well, you got my interest and was prepared to buy it as a gift for Dr. G, but discovered it was only worth US$15,000, so it really wasn't worth bothering with. I have so much money from all the contracts and investments Dr G has made, that this amount is now only pocket change. Im may wait for an original Strativarius to come along.

peter
look at the bid history
it is very interesting
about 20 bids were cancelled and the seller told each of them to go to some warm place beneath the ground.
50,000,000 went down to 15,000

macspectrum
for some reason that "the hell" line made me guffaw and chortle a little.
I really have to wonder why several bidders did this to the seller.

We have had about 6 or 7 inches of blowing snow today. When you step outside you get a face full of the stuff and it isnt letting up any time soon.
That big layer of snow will go dandy with the 3 inches of ice underneath it.
This is truly the winter that wont die easily, not unlike the monster thread.

Exclamation

macspectrum, minnes,

you might have noticed that the word 'kontol' was also used in one of the bid cancellations/retractions.

any of you has an idea of what the word means? (it's indonesian, obviously)

Thank you, Peter. The offer of the Strativarius was very generous of you, especially since my birthday is not until October. It would be a nice addition to the club house annex, which will house our symphony concert hall. Actually, the club house now looks like a hub (albeit not a digital hub), with the main club house in the center, the concert hall at the north spoke, the new open university on the south spoke, the even newer theater for off-Broadway productions on the east spoke, and the nearly completed sports complex is on the west spoke. I thought that we would make a bid for the Ottawa Senators. We could even give all the ehMacLanders a special luxuary box. Whenever one of the ehMacLand Doxies (the name of the new team) scored a hat trick, instead of the octopus being thrown onto the ice (as they do in Detroit), we could throw some of Macnutt's salmon heads. We could give him the exclusive concession to this "event", thus disarming him of his ammo for a worthy cause.

I heard about the "faux pas" in the multimedia room this afternoon, when the ICT person came in and wanted to know where was a computer with a Centrino wireless connection. We showed him to the "latrino" and demonstrated the "east coast swirly", although not actually going beyond a virtual demonstration. He became a quick switcher.
