    And now for something completely different!
    Not sure how many will catch that one!

    Anyone notice how the adverts at the top of this forum keep changing and some times they are somewhat strange?

    Just this morning I had two next to each other, the one on the left was for something to help remove ear wax and the one on the right was for portable crushing plants! Not sure if there is a connection between the two unless one is suppose to use the ear wax to lube the crushers!

    Must be the EBike design that is confusing the advert AI's

    ^ yep, this is another one of those super secret tricks used by people in the know ;) to edge out their competition!!! I've seen sharpshooters twist a round in their ear to improve muzzle velocity!!! and it works! the guy won every match he was on :) the problem would be getting enough supply to properly lube the big machinery??? I suppose we should market an earwax removal kit that comes with a recover tank the users could send in for credit on future orders??? anyone else have any thoughts on design for the tank? In the mean time I'll keep my ears open to suggestions from the EMBike strategical design team.

    If you are going to keep your ears open hows about keeping your eyes peeled ?
    That's another one I have never figured out how to do.
    Anyone been able to do it ?
    I bet Blocker BS has when he is doing those estimates.

    Keeping your eyes peeled is an easily calculable ratio between exposure from one or more sources of light in the ultraviolet wavelength multiplied by a length of time exposed.

    MS in August has an eye peeling exposure limit of about 10 minutes when not using the correct polarized lenses or OSHA approved headwear when pointing the human optical reception unit towards your friendly neighboring sustainable fusion experiment or your local welding shop.

    One key element in the eye peeling scenario is it keep the shades shut on the Human Optical Reception Unit.

    Warning!! Keeping the shades open when exposing the HORU. Direct ultraviolet light exposure of HORU sensors can lead to failure!!

    Keep your eyes peeled originated in peeler bars. It was an early form of advertising. They told you to keep your eyes peeled so you wouldn't have to bother your gawking buddies if you missed something. ;)

    I honestly am not disputing it at this point. I pondered on the thought and came to the conclusion you might have a valid point.

    So far as spill check is concerned, Shakespeare said “tis many many a slip betwixt a cup and lip”....or something to that effect.

    Nope, you're supposed to use the crusher to crush up the earwax chunks.
