Dallas,

Just how long is that extenuating cord???


Is that a Bb minor Chord or D minor 7? Is music in a minor chord always sadder? What radio stations play more minor versus major chord songs? Will we get better mileage if we listen to AM or FM stations



that was a pretty good drift wasn't it?

Hmmmmm. . .

This reminds me of the Paul Harvey story a few years ago about the woman who was shot in the fracas!

I think Dallas slammed the nail on the short end of the stick, but it all made crystal clear money til RickB brought up the question of the cord. Now I'm totally confused ??? And whose momma was in the Fracas? Did you bail her out?

well, it's a secret chord, obviously.  the fourth, the fifth - what I don't get is the fourth is indeed a minor fall, but the fifth is a dominatrix, not a Major...

Come on folks, y'all know that the length of an extenuating cord varies depending on the temperature of the DDEC seat actuater and whether the Norcold hydronic inverter is 12 volt or 8D.

Right, but if you extenuate the flaps and slats, then the cord changes and the electron flow through the flux capacitor into the accumulator will most definitely cause the bypass blower valve (that one's for RickB) to seize, and the unloader will stick, causing the governor to issue a pardon for the rear junction box termination point, resulting in massive corrosion of the 9th opus and the final collapse of the airbeam. The inevitable conclusion then, is to use grease in your wiper bearings rather than oil and fill the inverter with Sikaflex.

I can top the Paul Harvey quote.

I have actually seen a copy of the fargo Newspaper that ran the headline "Fertile woman killed in Climax". Fertile and Climax are two twons in Northern Minnesota.

Don't you think a proof reader would have caught that???

BTW I thought this was an excellent drift as well

Gumpy,

I bow at your prowess to make the least sense in such a convincing fashion. My hat is off to you. CORDially, Rick

Ah.....but you have to remember to only use a cord that has male ends on it. :)  This part was discussed on a board that i go to, along with the Dark Sucker explanation, a year or two ago.
