[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:11:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Samuel L Jackson, in the prequel material.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:11:16 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi KK!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:11:19 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Hi KK
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:11:22 PM EDT] <judyward> Hi KK
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:11:23 PM EDT] <bynw> hiyas KK
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:11:28 PM EDT] <Evie> I used to have a phone app that would let you create your own customized lightsaber and it made the sound effects if you used your phone as if you were swinging a saber
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:11:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:11:41 PM EDT] <judyward> YES! Samuel L Jackson!!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:11:54 PM EDT] <judyward> Neat app
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:11:58 PM EDT] <Evie> Living Force vs Universal Force, or something along those lines?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:12:11 PM EDT] <KK> That sounds like fun.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:12:18 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> Hi KK
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:12:22 PM EDT] <Evie> I had a blue-violet saber
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:12:25 PM EDT] <Evie> Hi KK
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:12:27 PM EDT] <judyward> Caesar is whining at me but they already ate.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:12:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> There's a story about him and the props department of every film he's been cast in since Pulp Fiction, but telling the story requires dropping the F-bomb or at least hinting at it really strongly.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:12:46 PM EDT] * The_Bee is wondering if Jedi Masters ahve invaded the Eleven Kingdoms.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:13:03 PM EDT] <bynw> a Deryni would make an awesome Jedi
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:13:04 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Evie, I think it was more like Consular vs. Guardian.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:13:08 PM EDT] <Evie> Sort of, but we call them Deryni. ;-)
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:13:25 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> A Deryni Jedi sounds cool
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:13:35 PM EDT] <judyward> Yes, our own Jedi Masters & Paduans
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:13:39 PM EDT] <bynw> it is
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:13:40 PM EDT] <Evie> Ah. It depends on which fans you ask, DR
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:13:48 PM EDT] <DesertRose> :)
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:13:51 PM EDT] <bynw> i've written that up in number of different ways
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:14:14 PM EDT] Join Shiral (~49df776d@OWIRCN-1bdd9d77.org) has joined this channel.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:14:18 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:14:19 PM EDT] <Evie> Might be Unifying rather than Universal
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:14:23 PM EDT] <judyward> Hi, Shiral
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:14:24 PM EDT] <The_Bee> HI Shiral
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:14:25 PM EDT] <bynw> hi Shiral
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:14:33 PM EDT] <Evie> I forget how that theory went, exactly. It's been years.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:14:37 PM EDT] * Shiral waves hello and enters the Chatroom with a champagne cork pop
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:14:39 PM EDT] <judyward> I just hope Wash gets to expand his training.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:14:40 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hello all
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:14:53 PM EDT] <judyward> Did anyone bring scones?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:14:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, I remember encountering it when I was playing a Star Wars RPG, but that's been nearly a decade and I just don't remember it all.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:15:00 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:15:05 PM EDT] <Evie> Did you have to squeeze through a tight door to cause that pop? :-D
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:15:11 PM EDT] <bynw> KK, Harvey was here a little bit ago but left maybe he will come back.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:15:13 PM EDT] * Shiral snaps fingers and provides not only scones but cream and strawberries
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:15:16 PM EDT] * DesertRose magicks some blueberry and strawberry scones into existence.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:15:21 PM EDT] * The_Bee sets out scones wwwwith butter and honey.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:15:28 PM EDT] <Shiral> Yes, It was uncomfortable, Evie
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:15:33 PM EDT] <judyward> Oh, yum! I'm hungry, too!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:15:46 PM EDT] * DesertRose sets out a plate of banana bread.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:16:00 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> mmm banana bread
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:16:02 PM EDT] <Evie> "It's not unlike escaping mother's womb! God, what a memory!" --Philippe
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:16:03 PM EDT] * Shiral also provides big pitchers full of cool drinks
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:16:07 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> gobbled
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:16:12 PM EDT] * The_Bee adds ice tea and cold cider.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:16:17 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Since I'm not feeding anyone but myself and Carys-kitteh IRL, I froze two-thirds of my loaf of banana bread, and I just took out the last third to thaw this morning.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:16:22 PM EDT] <judyward> We are having smoked turkey sandwiches for dinner; too hot to cook.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:16:23 PM EDT] <Shiral> Ah, I see you've made it to chat, Matt
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:16:28 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> Apple cider?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:16:33 PM EDT] <The_Bee> yep
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:16:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And Carys-kitteh does not get banana bread. :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:16:52 PM EDT] <Shiral> Magic pitchers, Matt, they contain whatever you happen to want to drink
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:16:52 PM EDT] <judyward> Would she like to?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:16:52 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> Yup. braving the heat in my house
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:17:12 PM EDT] <judyward> Then I'll have a Margarita in mine.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:17:21 PM EDT] <Evie> Ciders (true ones) are by default made with apples. :-)
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:17:21 PM EDT] * DesertRose sets out the magic tea kettle, which makes hot or iced tea of whatever type of tea the drinker would like, along with sugar and agave nectar to join the honey, plus milk and lemon wedges for those who'd like.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:17:23 PM EDT] <Shiral> Tee hee, I remember that line from Lady Hawk, Evie
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:17:41 PM EDT] <Evie> That's still one of my favorite movies
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:17:43 PM EDT] <Shiral> We eat and drink and well if virtually here in chat
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:17:50 PM EDT] <Shiral> KK, how is your mother faring?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:18:01 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Melantha has been getting anti-hyper-thyroid pills.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:18:05 PM EDT] * DesertRose rolls out the magic bar cart, with all the booze, mixers, and garnishes anyone could want, for those who'd like.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:18:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yes, how is LBM doing, KK?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:18:23 PM EDT] <bynw> saw a great little post on FB about gaming: Being a GM and writing your own campaigns is like buying your cats an elaborate cat condo and watching those dumb idiots spend 5 days in the box it came in eating packing peanuts.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:18:36 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:18:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Bee, my parents' late cats had to take thyroid-hormone-lowering medication too. (They died at the ages of 20 and 18.)
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:19:08 PM EDT] <judyward> Wow!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:19:08 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, yeah, bynw, I think I emailed that one to the TA email group. :P
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:19:28 PM EDT] <Shiral> You just have to look at it from the cat's point of view, Bynw. A box full of peanuts is all they could ever ask of you, and they're wondering why you bought that expensive thing they're not sure is safe. =o)
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:19:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:19:50 PM EDT] <bynw> one of my girls is on thyroid meds too
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:20:02 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hyperthyroidism is apparently fairly common in aging cats.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:20:26 PM EDT] <judyward> In people, too
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:20:32 PM EDT] <Shiral> I don't think Dmitri is in danger. He bears a great resemblance to a furry meat loaf
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:20:35 PM EDT] <The_Bee> good to know. It's especially worrisome because our vet says the condition can damage her only remaining kidney
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:20:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> In people, it tends to be hypothyroidism as we age.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:20:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It slows down for humans.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:20:53 PM EDT] <judyward> It's so common that when I was an underwriter, we just ignored it if they were taking the meds
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:00 PM EDT] <Shiral> I've been hypothyroid pretty much all my life
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:14 PM EDT] <judyward> Since 20 for me.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:15 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Well, if you keep her on the medication and monitor her levels with the vet, Melantha should be fine.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:17 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I'm hypothyroid.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:20 PM EDT] Quit KK has left this server (Quit: CGI:IRC).
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:21 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> you were an insurance underwriter?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:26 PM EDT] Join KK has joined this channel.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:30 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Catarina started wtih hyperthyroidism around age ten or eleven.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:31 PM EDT] <bynw> wb KK
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:32 PM EDT] <judyward> Yes
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Rehi KK.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:38 PM EDT] <The_Bee> rehi KK
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Catty lived to be 20.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:41 PM EDT] <judyward> Hi again
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:21:53 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> cool just were
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:22:09 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> cool judyward
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:22:22 PM EDT] <judyward> I reallly liked it.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:22:23 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> sorry for my typos
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:22:32 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Thyroid conditions are easy to manage, as chronic illnesses go.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:22:37 PM EDT] <Evie> We all understand Typonese
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:22:37 PM EDT] <judyward> Keyboards like to screw you up
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:22:39 PM EDT] <KK> Don't know what I hit, but it booted me out. I was trying to say that Little Bitty Mother is doing ok; very tired all the time, and still feisty about things like doing her physio exercises or anything else that she doesn't want to do.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:22:41 PM EDT] <Shiral> Yup'
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:22:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Everyone makes typos, JediMatt1000.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:23:05 PM EDT] <KK> I blame it on being born on the 4th of July, and being 93.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:23:12 PM EDT] <judyward> We all can be feisty about exercise
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:23:12 PM EDT] <Shiral> Sounds like she's recuperating, though
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:23:16 PM EDT] <Evie> She's a little firecracker?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:23:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, a lot of us slow down when (IF) we make to that age.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:23:24 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Well, Melantha has survived cancer, so she's pretty tough.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:23:38 PM EDT] <judyward> When you are 93, you should get most things your way
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:23:45 PM EDT] <Shiral> If I were any more naturally sedentary, I'd be covered with moss
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:23:47 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup. I meant to reassure you that as long as the hyperthyroidism is adequately managed, she should be fine.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:24:05 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> so being our house is hot; would it be ok to place ice cubes in our cats water dish?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:24:20 PM EDT] <judyward> Yes, you can do that
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:24:21 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I think it's something about little women, especially as they get older. You don't want to anger them; you WILL NOT win.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:24:25 PM EDT] <Evie> It should be fine
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:24:30 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yes, JediMatt1000, you can put an ice cube or two in the water dish.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:24:30 PM EDT] <Shiral> But still when you're recovering function after a stroke, it pays to do the exercises
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:24:35 PM EDT] <judyward> That;s what we did for the dogs the 2 days ours was out
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:24:46 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> sometimes LC likes to bat ice cubes that fall in the floor around
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:25:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My silly cat likes to lick ice chips. I don't have an icemaker in my fridge, so I have ice trays, and pretty much every time I refill my tea, there is Carys by my feet, waiting for me to drop an ice chip or three for her.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:25:12 PM EDT] <judyward> T2 & Caesar LOVE ice cubes1!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:25:27 PM EDT] <Evie> Hopefully your cat(s) won't decide the ice is a toy (or prey) and deposit it in your shoe instead
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:25:33 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Shiral, are the wildfires still keeping their distance from you?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:25:36 PM EDT] <judyward> LOL< Evie
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:25:40 PM EDT] <jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:26:27 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> lol...no, but they have thrown up in my shoes before
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:26:30 PM EDT] <Evie> I still start laughing when I think of Luke bringing the live mouse into the room to put it in my DH's shoe. :-D
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:26:31 PM EDT] <Shiral> So far, Bee. But Yosemite is closed until they get the fire nearest there contained
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:26:43 PM EDT] <judyward> The problem with AC being out too long is that it can affect your appliances & computers.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:26:48 PM EDT] <Shiral> Yosemite Valley is full of smoke
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:27:10 PM EDT] <The_Bee> How far is Yosemite from you?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:27:15 PM EDT] <Shiral> The fire up near Redding is the largest and worst, but it's miles away from me
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:27:22 PM EDT] <Shiral> Five hours drive
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:27:30 PM EDT] <Evie> Cats are annoyingly loveable, perpetual toddlers.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:27:34 PM EDT] <Evie> With fur.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:27:36 PM EDT] <judyward> I hope the fires stay away from populated places.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:27:40 PM EDT] <Shiral> And fangs and claws
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:27:47 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> True judyward
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:28:16 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Some houses have already burned.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:28:37 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That reminds me, I need to call my aunt and make sure she and my uncle are okay. They live north of Sacramento but south of Redding.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:28:46 PM EDT] <judyward> 2 days is long enough, Matt
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:28:55 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> Prayers for all affected by the fire
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:28:57 PM EDT] <Shiral> Well, Redding has already had some significant property damage, alas. Everything that makes it hard for the firefighters to contain and fight the fire is in play--hot dry ,weather, unpredictable winds and a lot of very dry fuel for the fire.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:29:12 PM EDT] <Evie> :-(
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:29:17 PM EDT] <judyward> Fires love this time of year
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:29:37 PM EDT] <KK> I talked to my sister today, in Sacramento, and she said the sky is tinged orange, like very bad smog in LA.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:29:39 PM EDT] <Shiral> At this point, "Fire Season" is about 12 months out of the year.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:29:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah, I just looked at the Cal Fire map, and the Redding fire is a good ways from where my aunt and uncle live, but it could still be affecting the air quality where they are, and my aunt is about to be 76 and my uncle just turned 81.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:29:58 PM EDT] <The_Bee> drought, heat and high winsd
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:30:17 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> My aunt lost her house and everything she owned in the Yarnell fire where the 19 hotshots died.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:30:20 PM EDT] <judyward> Hard too on anyone with asthma etc
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:30:30 PM EDT] <DesertRose> If I could split the ridiculous amount of rain we've gotten here in Florida with California and Europe, I would do it in a minute.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:30:32 PM EDT] <Evie> Ouch, sorry to hear that, Matt
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:30:34 PM EDT] <judyward> That was a BAD fire.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:30:35 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Alas, I lack the weatherworking ability.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:30:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yikes, JediMatt1000!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:30:58 PM EDT] <Shiral> If I could do actual weather working, I'd make it rain all over Shasta County.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:31:04 PM EDT] <judyward> Maybe we should ask Duncan to pray for rain
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:31:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I'm not sure Florida has dried out since Irma last fall.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:31:27 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> Yes, she has dealt with "guilt" that those heroes died over property
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:31:35 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> sorry typo
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:31:36 PM EDT] <Evie> I'd ask Mini-Duncan, but you're likely to only get mini-rain if I do.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:31:40 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I get that this is a swamp and all, but there becomes a point at which the rain gets ridiculous.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:32:03 PM EDT] <judyward> Yes, too much rain is bad, too
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:32:44 PM EDT] <Shiral> My brother and Sister-in-law have fled Florida for.....New Guinea. I'm not sure how much better or worse off they are, though.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:32:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Pretty much the entire state of Florida is low ground, too, so once the ground is saturated, the water ends up all over the roads and everything else.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:33:20 PM EDT] <judyward> And it erodes the limestone foundation of the state.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:33:20 PM EDT] <DesertRose> What few "hills" we have are barely worthy of the term.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:33:23 PM EDT] <Evie> So far we've had a decent balance this summer. A lot of daily or near-daily showers, but few big storms. For being in the heart of Tornado Alley, we've had surprisingly few severe storms this year. Knock on wood. *knocks on head*
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:33:42 PM EDT] <Shiral> If I could do weather working, I'd also spread the rains out more evenly, but I've had no success. I just end up with wet maps. Ariella I ain't.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:33:59 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> lol Shiral
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:34:10 PM EDT] <DesertRose> We're mostly glad of that, Shiral. Weather-working ability aside, Ariella wasn't the nicest person. :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:34:14 PM EDT] <Evie> I don't dare try. My maps are on my smartphone. ;-)
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:34:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Although such a pretty name. *sigh*
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:34:35 PM EDT] <Shiral> Nope. And I'd just as soon not be related to Imre, either.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:34:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Right?!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:34:44 PM EDT] <DesertRose> He wasn't a great guy either.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:34:46 PM EDT] <judyward> There 's a character in a book I'm reading who's bad moods bring on rain storms
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:34:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Don't anger that person?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:34:57 PM EDT] <Shiral> Water and smart phones=bad combination
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:35:00 PM EDT] * IIsi50MHz takes a couple things outa context...

[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:35:22 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:35:28 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Indeed, Shiral.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:35:32 PM EDT] <IIsi50MHz> ...Yes, but less informative. (-;
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:35:38 PM EDT] * Shiral tosses Jemler some gold fish
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:35:57 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I was in an online conversation about weird phobias, and I brought up mine about accidentally dropping my phone in the bathtub or whatever.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:36:13 PM EDT] <judyward> Not good for phones!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:36:25 PM EDT] <Shiral> Not good for people bathing, either
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:36:35 PM EDT] <IIsi50MHz> And somebody bragged about their waterproof phone?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:36:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Some of it is that my mobile phone is the only phone I have, so I rather need it, and some of it is that my bio-father was an electrician who quite graphically informed me what happens when electrical current joins water joins human body.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:36:41 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> sorry to run everybody, but I need to go back to my DIY AC project. Will try to pop back into chat as time allows. Glad I was finally able to be here!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:36:42 PM EDT] <judyward> Not sure the new ones would do that?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:36:54 PM EDT] <The_Bee> What's the book. Judyward?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:36:55 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Later, JediMatt1000! Join us again some time!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:36:59 PM EDT] <Shiral> Bye, JediMattt
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:37:00 PM EDT] <Evie> Glad you could make it this week, Matt
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:37:12 PM EDT] <JediMatt1000> Thank you all!

[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:37:36 PM EDT] <judyward> Bye Matt!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:37:44 PM EDT] <judyward> Oh, missed him!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:38:17 PM EDT] <IIsi50MHz> Phone doesn't have that much ooph, though. Mains current on the other hand... *thinks of all those "Do not use while bathing." labels on hair dryers, toasters, ...*
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:38:20 PM EDT] <Evie> I am once again a human cat tree
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:38:49 PM EDT] <Shiral> Pygmy lions have been fed at my end. Now they're napping
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:38:53 PM EDT] <judyward> It's mind-boggling, the warnings that have to be put on stuff now
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:39:31 PM EDT] <Shiral> "Really, we promise. This will be HOT after you take this out of the oven. If your drink is escaping, you're holding your cup upside down...."
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:39:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> No, true, re: phone, unless it were plugged into the charger.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:39:45 PM EDT] <Evie> My favorite was on an unpainted, very obviously plastic, model gingerbread house that had the warning label, "Our lawyers require us to inform you that this product is not meant for human consumption."
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:39:48 PM EDT] <judyward> Now we'd even have warnings on Light-sabers & Shiral crystals.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:40:00 PM EDT] * IIsi50MHz considers changing that part of the labels to "Stupidity will not be tolerated." >.>
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:40:06 PM EDT] <Shiral> It might not be the end of you, but it probably will be the end of your phone
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:40:22 PM EDT] <The_Bee> Every reminder is probably issued because someone actually did it once.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:40:38 PM EDT] <jemler> are kyber crystals the jedi version of shiral crystals?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:40:43 PM EDT] <Evie> My (homemade) lightsaber has a warning in Aurebesh alphabet on the end of the handle that says "This End Towards User"
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:40:46 PM EDT] <judyward> That's what scares me. How stupid can pople be?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:40:48 PM EDT] <KK> Or the inventors can imagine that someone might do it.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:41:08 PM EDT] <judyward> LOL Evie!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:41:17 PM EDT] <bynw> well there is this warning:
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:41:18 PM EDT] <bynw> On a Swedish chainsaw:
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:41:19 PM EDT] <bynw> Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:41:19 PM EDT] <IIsi50MHz> heh
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:41:22 PM EDT] <Shiral> I suppose you have to think of a lot of unlikely contingencies, if you want to protect yourself from the foolish litigants of the world.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:41:29 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL, bynw!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:41:31 PM EDT] <IIsi50MHz> Wait, what?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:41:34 PM EDT] <bynw> i wonder what prompted the need for that warning
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:41:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I don't think I WANT to know.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:41:50 PM EDT] <judyward> I'm afraid to imagine that one.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:41:58 PM EDT] <Shiral> I don't want to know what happened in the case of the Swedish chainsaw.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:42:15 PM EDT] <Shiral> Too much aquavit, maybe
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:42:27 PM EDT] <Evie> When my husband was a paralegal years ago, they had to defend a lawnmower company from a man who sued them because he had been carrying the running lawnmower up some stairs, and managed to cut off his genitalia
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:42:38 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I like KK's theory. People who invent stuff are generally fairly creative types, and they can often turn their creativity to the stupid crap people might pull. :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:42:48 PM EDT] <Shiral> Yeeks.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:42:55 PM EDT] <Evie> He was suing because, in his opinion, the lawnmower should have had a warning label on it saying not to do that.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:42:58 PM EDT] <judyward> yes

[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:43:23 PM EDT] <jemler> i heard of a case like that.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:43:24 PM EDT] <Shiral> "nothing bad will happen if I carrry this thing with rotating blades still in motion...."
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:43:28 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hi Everyone!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:43:35 PM EDT] <Evie> So whenever I see a particularly stupid warning label, I just remind myself it's probably because some idjit out there won a lawsuit after doing something just that stupid.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:43:35 PM EDT] <Shiral> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:43:41 PM EDT] <judyward> Hi jerusha
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:43:59 PM EDT] <bynw> hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:44:04 PM EDT] <Evie> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:44:06 PM EDT] <Shiral> It's sometimes good for the ego to realize "Hey, at least I never tried to carry my lawn mower around."
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:44:15 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:44:20 PM EDT] <judyward> LOL! Would never have thought of that one
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:44:21 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:44:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> At least not while it was running!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:44:50 PM EDT] <judyward> WHY would you have a running lawnmower on stairs??
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:44:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (I know a guy who runs a landscaping business, so he at times certainly has to transport lawnmowers, but I'm fairly sure he and his staff know to turn the damn things OFF before attempting to load them for transport.)
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:44:58 PM EDT] <Shiral> Even if you grow grass in your attic, turn OFF the mower before carrying it upstairs!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:45:01 PM EDT] <IIsi50MHz> So, did they counter-sue, saying that "Your failure to consider the consequences is not our problem."? (-:
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:45:12 PM EDT] <Evie> I don't think I'd carry anything with revolving sharp blades above groin level anyway even if it's off! In this particular case, I think he tripped and it grazed him on its way to the ground.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:45:22 PM EDT] <Shiral> Owwwie
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:45:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The kind of grass most folks would grow in their attics doesn't generally require a lawnmower to maintain. :P
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:45:24 PM EDT] <judyward> And don't let the cops know you're growing it.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:45:24 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My dad lost the tips of his fingers when he tried to clear the snow-blower. He walked up to the hospital and had them reattached.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:45:38 PM EDT] <IIsi50MHz> lol
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:45:38 PM EDT] <judyward> Ouch!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:45:41 PM EDT] <Shiral> Exactly, DR
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:45:46 PM EDT] <Evie> I think so. I don't know all the particulars of the case, only what it was about.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:46:17 PM EDT] <Evie> Ow, Bee!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:47:21 PM EDT] <Jerusha> So this has been a cutting edge discussion?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:47:34 PM EDT] <judyward> LOL! BAD!!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:48:11 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I like to remain sharp
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:48:22 PM EDT] <judyward> STOP!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:48:27 PM EDT] <judyward> LOL!!

[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:48:30 PM EDT] <Evie> DH also saw the burn photos from the McDonald's coffee case, but in that instance the woman who got burned had a valid reason to sue. Her local McD was serving their coffee well above the safe temperature for beverages to be served, and they knew it but didn't adjust the temp because they thought
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:48:30 PM EDT] <Evie> keeping it hotter would keep the coffee in the cup hot longer.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:48:30 PM EDT] <jemler> i'll stay out of this one.

[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:49:22 PM EDT] * Jerusha fillets the incoming payload
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:49:22 PM EDT] <judyward> I didn't know that

[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:49:35 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Her attorney decided to give McDonald's an object lesson they wouldn't forget so easily.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:50:03 PM EDT] <Evie> Yes. It wasnt just a case of someone being surprised that hot coffee was hot. It was a case of hot coffee being so scalding hot that it caused instant severe burns and blistering
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:50:17 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Not good
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:50:31 PM EDT] <judyward> My brother crawled onto the table when his was little & turned over a regular, non-mug sized coffe & had 3rd degree burns.

[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:51:25 PM EDT] <judyward> Yes, ouch was right!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:52:09 PM EDT] <Shiral> Burns are ALWAYS painful. just ask Duncan
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:52:15 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Yes
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:52:30 PM EDT] <Jerusha> But he had Alaric to help
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:52:38 PM EDT] <The_Bee> and healing can take a long time.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:52:52 PM EDT] <judyward> YEs, and at least Danny wasnt old enough to remember them. We were also 13 miles from the hospital & no EMTs in those sdays
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:53:04 PM EDT] <Evie> He had to wait until the next day for full Healing, though, since IIRC he had merasha in his system at the time
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:53:13 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Oh dear
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:53:31 PM EDT] <Jerusha> But they were able to keep him out of shock
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:53:31 PM EDT] <Evie> Ow!

[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:54:49 PM EDT] <judyward> I also got swatted fir not keeping brother out of trouble
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:54:55 PM EDT] <Shiral> And at least Duncan was rescued
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:55:24 PM EDT] <The_Bee> How old were you, Judy?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:55:33 PM EDT] <judyward> About 7
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:55:47 PM EDT] <Jerusha> A little young to be in charge
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:55:58 PM EDT] <judyward> I got swatted pretty much every time he got hurt when I was there.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:56:17 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Ouch
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:56:19 PM EDT] <Shiral> That must have been scary
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:56:32 PM EDT] <judyward> Yes
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:56:39 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hope he didn't get hurt too often
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:56:53 PM EDT] <Shiral> My cousin got a bad cut from a blender once. The baby sitter freaked out, so she was of questionable help
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:56:55 PM EDT] <judyward> Not tooo often
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:57:09 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Oh good
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:57:21 PM EDT] <judyward> I was "supposed to be watching him."
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:57:42 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Never mind that young children can get into all sorts of trouble even with an actual adult supervising. :/
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:57:58 PM EDT] <judyward> It was pretty unreasonable
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:58:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yeah
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:58:33 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And the kind of injury that results from overturning a coffee cup can happen awfully fast.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:58:42 PM EDT] <Shiral> Yup
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:59:02 PM EDT] <judyward> I got even later. If I wanted something Danny had, I'd say, " If you don't give me some of that, I'll tell Daddy what you did." & he always had something he was hiding.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:59:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I remember grabbing the Pod-Child (then around age two) by the back of her overalls because she was about to run out into the street where we lived at the time and there was a car coming.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:59:24 PM EDT] <judyward> It did! I wasn't really looking at him when he did it.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:59:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She looked pretty confused when she went from running to suspended in mid-air in about half a second.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:59:41 PM EDT] <judyward> Very scary, DR!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [7:59:54 PM EDT] <Jerusha> More scary if it hadn't worked
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:00:07 PM EDT] <judyward> Yes
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:00:27 PM EDT] <DesertRose> It was at the time. Later, remembering her facial expression and the way her entire body looked, suspended by her pink denim OshKosh overalls, it was pretty funny since no harm was done.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:00:46 PM EDT] <judyward> Flying Pod Child!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:00:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yup
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:00:51 PM EDT] <Evie> DH managed to catch DS by the ankle as he was falling head-first to the ground, having managed to stand and fall out of a grocery cart in the split second while DH's attention was occupied grabbing something off a shelf.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:01:08 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Wow, good catch
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:01:09 PM EDT] <judyward> Kids are fast!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:01:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Hopefully DH caught DS before DS' head hit the floor.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:01:22 PM EDT] <The_Bee> I remember getting spanked for going to the beach alone.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:01:29 PM EDT] <judyward> What!!!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:01:34 PM EDT] <Evie> He did. And then stood there in shock for a second or two, staring at dangling child in relief.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:01:39 PM EDT] <judyward> Who let you get out there?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:01:58 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That had to have been a similar moment to me and the suspended-by-her-overalls Pod-Child. Funny, in retrospect.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:02:06 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Hopefully DS was not saying "Again!"
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:02:15 PM EDT] <Evie> Yes, we laugh about it now, but it could potentially have been fatal.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:02:18 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yes.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:02:27 PM EDT] <judyward> Yes, it could
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:02:41 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Absolutely. A head-first fall onto a linoleum or other hard floor like grocery stores generally have could have really ended badly.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:02:45 PM EDT] <judyward> Hate to leave but gotta go feed DH. Everyone have a good week!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:02:52 PM EDT] <Evie> Bye judyward
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:02:56 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, see you later, judyward! Have a good week, too!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:02:58 PM EDT] <bynw> bye judy
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:03:00 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Nighters, Judyward!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:03:12 PM EDT] <judyward> 'Bye!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:03:14 PM EDT] <Shiral> Bye, Judy
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:03:15 PM EDT] Quit judyward (judyward@OWIRCN-cdcc182c.res.rr.com) has left this server (Quit: http://www.kiwiirc.com/ - A hand crafted IRC client).
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:03:30 PM EDT] <The_Bee> My mother once said the rule was, if a kid is missing, check the most dangerous place first.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:03:36 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Good idea.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:03:40 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL, yep
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:03:44 PM EDT] <KK> Sounds like good advice.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:03:48 PM EDT] <Shiral> Smart
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:04:01 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Silence is golden, unless you have small children around; then, silence is VERY suspicious.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:04:11 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Yep
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:04:28 PM EDT] <Shiral> I'd imagine that Kelric ran his nurse and parents quite a worrisome life.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:04:34 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, yes
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:04:36 PM EDT] <Jerusha> When it's that quiet, you start counting heads
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:04:42 PM EDT] <Evie> If DD was ever missing, I usually heard a suspicious silence first, then maniacal laughter immediately preceding the toilet flush
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:04:50 PM EDT] <DesertRose> If it's very quiet and not nap time, yup.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:05:30 PM EDT] <Evie> I thought about little Kelric today while watching my pastor's youngest son, who is just a few months younger than Kelric in Shiral's story
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:05:38 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I almost hesitate to ask for details, Evie
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:05:39 PM EDT] <Shiral> But then probably Kelson did, too
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:05:45 PM EDT] <DesertRose> The Pod-Child's godson once tried to flush a toy car down the toilet at my parents' house.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:05:50 PM EDT] <Evie> And has blond curls and blue eyes
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:05:54 PM EDT] <Shiral> BTW, I've posted chapter 10 on the webpage
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:06:04 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Yea!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:06:06 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Yay! Will read after chat. :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:06:19 PM EDT] <Shiral> (It's been up for a while...)
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:06:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:06:30 PM EDT] <Shiral> You may have also missed chapter 8
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:06:31 PM EDT] <Evie> I usually did too, Jerusha, because if I heard those sounds, I didn't always manage to figure out what disappeared down the toilet drain!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:06:49 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Sometimes, it's better not knowing
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:06:52 PM EDT] <Shiral> Kids and toilets can be a dangerous combo for a number of reasons
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:06:54 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Oh, the puppy one!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:07:03 PM EDT] Quit Harvey (Harvey@OWIRCN-29a1dde7.ip.windstream.net) has left this server (Quit: http://www.kiwiirc.com/ - A hand crafted IRC client).
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:07:04 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I did read it, but I'm awful at keeping track of chapter numbers.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:07:35 PM EDT] <Shiral> To be fair, I've not yet posted chapter 11
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:07:35 PM EDT] <The_Bee> When Prince William was a toddler, he tried to flush his father's boots down the toilet.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:07:45 PM EDT] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:07:49 PM EDT] <Shiral> That would have been difficult, I'd think
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:07:51 PM EDT] <Jerusha> That would have been difficult
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:07:59 PM EDT] <DesertRose> At least adult-sized boots would generally not go down the loo!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:07:59 PM EDT] <Shiral> Even if Daddy had little feet
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:08:35 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Prince Charles is moderately tall, though, so I'd imagine his feet are at least on the larger end of average shoe size.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:08:40 PM EDT] <Evie> Hopefully that wasn't meant as commentary on Daddy's fashion sense!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:08:52 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Well....
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:09:17 PM EDT] <Jerusha> They could have been wading boots
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:09:45 PM EDT] <Evie> :-D
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:12:20 PM EDT] <Shiral> Well at least we know they can afford a good plumber. =o)
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:13:14 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:13:30 PM EDT] <KK> I suspect that most kids at least try to flush something that shouldn't be flushed, just to see where the stuff goes. (Of course, they just see it disappear, so the riddle is never really solved until much later in life.)
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:13:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I probably did.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:13:55 PM EDT] <DesertRose> And I also disassembled the phone because I wanted to know how it worked.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:14:17 PM EDT] <KK> Taking things apart is quite normal.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:14:19 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Oh dear, did you figure it out?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:14:22 PM EDT] <DesertRose> My mother was right on the edge of murdering me until she realized she could figure out how to reassemble it (it wasn't that difficult, rotary dial phone).
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:14:46 PM EDT] <Shiral> I was always fascinated by that whirlpool effect caused by flushing
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:15:19 PM EDT] <DesertRose> That was around the same time I got mad at her (no longer remember why, probably she told me I wasn't allowed to do something I wanted), so I drew/wrote a sign and stuck it in the front window (she was outside mowing the lawn, IIRC) to express my displeasure.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:15:39 PM EDT] <Jerusha> What did it say?
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:15:52 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Part of the text was "this stinks," but being four or five, I wrote: "Pee-you" for the noise people make when something doesn't smell good.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:16:18 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Mom was probably suitably impressed
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:16:51 PM EDT] <DesertRose> I think she had one of those parenting moments wherein the kid has done something hilarious but unacceptable so you (the parent) can on no account laugh and thus condone the behavior.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:17:08 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Story of my life
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:17:13 PM EDT] <DesertRose> You have three boys. I bet.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:17:19 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Yep
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:17:24 PM EDT] <DesertRose> She had that experience step-mothering my brothers.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:17:39 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Which is probably part of why she was fairly unflappable by the time I was born.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:17:53 PM EDT] <DesertRose> (Some of it is probably her temperament; she doesn't get flustered or upset easily.)
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:18:36 PM EDT] <Jerusha> I appreciated the humour, which usually backfired
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:18:46 PM EDT] <DesertRose> LOL, yeah.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:19:59 PM EDT] <KK> Whoops, look at the time. Gotta dash, folks. Remember, early chat next week. See you then.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:20:12 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Okay, have a good week, KK, and we'll see you for early chat in a week!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:20:15 PM EDT] <bynw> have a good night KK
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:20:15 PM EDT] <Jerusha> Nighters, KK
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:20:15 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Same bat-channel. :D
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:20:15 PM EDT] <The_Bee> bye KK. glad you came
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:20:23 PM EDT] <DesertRose> Thanks for coming to see us!
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:20:33 PM EDT] <Evie> Bye KK
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:20:35 PM EDT] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:20:45 PM EDT] <jemler> nite kk
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:20:45 PM EDT] <The_Bee> have a good week, you and LBM
[Sunday, July 29, 2018] [8:20:45 PM EDT] Quit KK has left this server (Quit: CGI:IRC (EOF)).
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
