Oh hello Mr. Shock.
How's your debate going?





Or maybe your last post was so strong that I decided to curl up into a ball and rock back and forth repeating, "Schro Dog is better than me, I am no good as a Fighter and I don't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as he."

My eyes hurt from the crying...


Isn't honesty the best catharsis?

There there.

*sips the Scotch, already poured from the mysteriously-unlabeled bottle behind the bar*


Hem, that's not scotch.

Buck up little camper, have some liquid courage:



I know you're just being sarcastic, but, well, have some anyway.

*lifts two glasses from behind the bar, not from the stack that S-Dog washed*

Hey, look at this way, you get an extra hour to come up with something.

Not in my timezone..


For the record, I was at the Huntington Library today for the unveiling of the new 'History of Science' Exhibit.

I got to see one of the original printings of "The Origin Of Species" and a handwritten letter from Nikola Tesla himself...and my favorite was an 18th century illustration and explantion of "Trepanation"...they actually used a hand drill!

That's pretty much why you don't have a post yet...


And as always, I enjoy reading pages (every time I visit, I'm a member)that I can't touch where the letter 's' is represented by an 'f'...

Yes in fact hand drills are used to this day -- they're simply much more controllable. Even with a depth-stop gauge, electric drills are much more susceptible to unintentional penetration of the dura.

The more you know...

Good to know...they must have refined the technique as the summary plaque explained that their procedure carried with it heavey tissue and structural damage in the impacted area.

Fascinating stuff. I took a picture of the illustration and it is now the background on my phone.

I freakin' love The Huntington...mostly for the library and the gardens...

Sorry for the delay guys; I'll have my post up sometime between late morning and early afternoon tomorrow.

This is not an indirect admission of concession...not even a little. My mind is just a bit foggy currently...

Well, a good trepanation will do that.
Shake it off Shock, I know you'll come back strongish.

Back in the day, debates used to be judged by number of stars. That was a nightmare as it was subject to abuse. I once had this debate in which I was leading in stars by far. Then my opponent took a 24 hour extention. When he came back his star-count had improbably tripled and he won the debate.

Btw: People who hang around the Pub too often drinking, tend to be weaker in the debates

I've been waiting for the "word" on my debate for a bit. I'm going to sum it up like this:

Hey Oscitate


You guys both did a hell of a job. I don't think that'll be an easy debate to judge.

Why thank you, I have to say I lied though. I'd be drinking my red wine anyway. As they say hereabout, vino rosso corposo. Hmm. Right, where's the bottle?

*Heike shows up with new bottle of good red wine and, after taking a hearty swig, passes the bottle to Oscitate and joins him and ADB on the "waiting to be judged" bench.
