I just had a little chat with an adjunct who requested that the part time
lab guy set up 4 different labs because the adjunct didn't know which one he
was going to do that night...

Good one David!! :D :D

I like one of the definitions to "sundries" - "miscellaneous items of little
value." Maybe his demo is of little value too!

I now have to wonder about his other request for, -Newton balls
May be on the same line as your sun-dried Veges. :D

Sorry for the bad puns - its one of those days...

If you have a copy of the novel _The Sundered_ you could set that out?

Or maybe sun-dried (sun-dry) tomatoes? Grape tomatoes are kind of
ball-shaped.

I presume ss doesn't refer to Nazi balls, but stainless steel? I usually
prefer mine nickel-plated. (And for a nickel....)

Best,
David

Here is your odd demo request for the day:
- Various and sundry ball/ramp combos (wood, ss balls)

I laughed when I read this request. Let me think, I have at least 8
ramps and dozens of other things that could be used as ramps and
hundreds of balls, of all sizes and materials ..... Hummm! What should I
use today!!! ;-D

However, My question is how often is "sundry" used?
