OK, Tappers -

It's Friday, and we've all been sucking SF6. I have a whole 'nother
question.

What is your favorite way to open one of those cardboard tubes from
McMaster-Carr? You know the ones.

I'll start: I saw the end off with the serrrated blade on my
Leatherman(tm) tool.

You gotta be a real glutton for punishment to want to work out the metal ends. Taking out the staples is the easy part. I have at times, removed them just to prove it's not better than me and I can do it, but it's a lot of work. Sawing off the end is much easier. -Ed

Taking a break from the SF6 discussion, my chemistry colleague and I were
talking about the "worm" at the bottom of a certain brand of tequila. Not
sure about the physics of this question, but does anyone know the
history/reason behind this unusual thing? Was the worm placed in to check
on the "strength" of the alcohol in the old days?

Well....I was gonna write and point out that we had $1200 for the PIRA
resource room next year...but I figured that your buddy and our new
fearless leader, Dale, already knew this and thus, the two of you were
in the the planning stages to move the room to the ball park.

And, since I seem to be the only one in the crowd that prefers rootbeer,
I'll put my order in for a six pack or 2 of Diet A&W, please....and I
want a hat. And not just any old hat.....a cool PIRA hat. In red and
white....with flames....and if you ask real nice, I might umpire since
I'll be the only sober one around. ;-)
