Well, when you make chex mix you put butter and worcestershire sauce over the whole mess and broil it. So it shouldn't be THAT different. It would probably make a tasty granola or trail mix add-in.

Quick question; say your doing yardwork, you go to get a fuel can to put fuel in your mower. The can is red, marked "gasoline," and after you fill up the tank of your mower, white smoke billows out of the tailpipe of your mower like a it's going out of style, like a van full of pot smoke blowin' down the interstate. What would you say was in the gas can; gas, or diesel?

I only ask because my nose is stinging right now from all the smoke.

I'd think that would have something to do with the oil.

Something like that. Apparently you can also get fished stuffed in it.

I'm personally hoping for a steak-stuff crab. Surf and turf....yummy.

I just learned three important things....

(1) always clearly mark what fuel is in what can.
(2) diesel fuel tastes really nasty, and makes me puke.
(3) I'm buying one of these tomorrow after I get off work.

Now, I am going to go and TRY and enjoy the rest of my evening.

wiki says:

"Practical requirements

A plain tube can be used as a siphon. An external pump has to be applied to start the liquid flowing and prime the siphon. This can be a human mouth. This is sometimes done with any leak-free hose to siphon gasoline from a motor vehicle's gasoline tank to an external tank. (Siphoning gasoline by mouth often results in the accidental swallowing of gasoline, which is quite poisonous, or aspirating it into the lungs, which can cause death or lung damage.[1]) If the tube is flooded with liquid before part of the tube is raised over the intermediate high point and care is taken to keep the tube flooded while it is being raised, no pump is required"

I think tonight I'm going to see if I can get a "Hatler" meme started on 4chan.

While generally stupid, it would be temporarily beneficial to politics forums everywhere to dismiss Hitlergenic arguments with a simple "HATLER"

You're gonna have to pick it up a lot man. You're good with pushups since you only need 42 in 2 minutes, but situps you have to have 49 in two minutes if I'm not mistaken, and you have to be able to run 2 miles in 15:30 to pass basic. And I would post a picture of "hatler" but I couldn't find a good base pic that would fit well with him wearing a hat. Lol.

I'd say concentrate on the running, it's likely going to be harder than doing sit-ups. Also, it's a good idea to surpass the requirements instead of passing at 60%.

Meh, the running is easy. I can run 5k (3.1 miles) in 18 minutes, doing 2 in 15:30 should be cake, even for a non-track-dude. But as long as you bust your ass during basic, you should be able to reach those numbers fairly easy. The actual hard part is going through with Basic and quashing any cases of the "fuckits" that happen to come along. Keep your head down, do the work, and you'll be golden.

Good luck!!

Deadpool is really Ozzy Ozbourne? Okay....

I'm working on a series of Architext Missions that uses all my characters at some point or another. My villain character that you see there dressed up as Deadpool is supposed to be a former head of security for a tech corporation in the game who lost his job to my main hero-side character, is now homeless, and has it out for my hero. So his main outfit is grey khakis, sneakers, a dirty t-shirt, and... long hair with circle sunglasses.

I realized the other day that his build pretty much mirrored Deadpool's abilities (dual sword wielding along with a mix of self-regeneration and tough defenses), so I thought... why not give him a DP outfit? So I did the Ryan Reynold's DP from the Origins move (dark red shirt and khaki pants) for one outfit slot, and the comic book DP outfit for the other.

I've got to work on the head of it a little more, though. That split circle thing on DP's mask isn't available in-game, so it's going to be tricky. However, I could just as easily re-work the costume and turn it into Deathstroke/Slade.

------

Siphon Pump: $5.
2 foot length of clear plastic tubing; $2.
Duct Tape (to hold both together); $3.

Siphoning gas out of my dad's truck to put in his mower? Priceless.

Nah, I wouldn't do that. Although I am tempted after yesterday.

To give you all a general idea of what Diesel Fuel tastes like... think of a really bad tasting cheap wine you've had, and then add a slight motor oil after-taste, and you'll get the general idea.

hey man in the beginning of the summer I couldn't do 5 push up much less run a mile in under 8 minutes 30 seconds, (it took me 12 minutes) so I say thats a really good improvement because by nature I am a fucking coach potato.

I don't know how large your lawn mower is, or how its gas tank is set up, but many of the ones I've seen just have a plastic tank in it that is relatively easily removable...or honestly, why not just duct tape a gas can to the opening and tip the thing over? a few hundred pounds isn't that hard with leverage.

Those plastic no-spill gas containers are pretty cheap and found at most gas stations.

I need to get a better one, the one I have is 1.3 gallons (for when the motorcycle runs out of gas) and I have not once successfully used it. gas goes everywhere.

At the outfitter we had a bunch of no-spill ones with these cool little push-button nozzles for the generator at the outpost and they were a breeze to use.

If this was the piddly little Murray lawn tractor we used to have, it wouldn't be a big deal. As it is, this is an all-steel International lawn tractor with a 40+ mowing deck on it, with the top of the engine sitting about chest high on me (I'm about 5'10 or 5'11" depending on which gas station I'm running out of).

So yeah, tip this thing over.... not likely, even with leverage.

The conversation with my dad last night was interesting, though.

Me; Okay, I'm not going to tell you WHAT I did, I just want to know; what was in the gas can in your garage?
Dad: ... did you pour diesel fuel into my tractor?
Me: Probably.
Dad: That's the same can I pumped deisel fuel out of 6 months ago when your brother did the same thing! Why did you do that?!
Me: Because it was a big red can marked "Gasoline."
Dad: Well, it wasn't, it was diesel fuel. The gasoline is in the blue can next to it. You should have asked.
Me: I shouldn't have HAD to ask, because it was a BIG RED CAN marked GASOLINE.

For those of you who don't know; blue fuel cans are typically marked KEROSENE, as his is. We went back and forth like this for a few minutes, and I finally said I was going to take a big sharpie and relable the cans for what they actually contain. He no response or protest to that.

I see that it's more than your typical riding mower.

do you have anything that runs off diesel? I don't see why he kept that fuel after your brother did that and left it around to be used again later unless you have something that uses the fuel.

A friend back home once filled his step-dad's diesel truck up with regular unleaded and fucked it up something fierce.

I suppose if Dante can do it, I can too. Depending on which way school goes, there's a chance I may enter the state police academy and I'd have to go through all the training. Sure, I danced for years, but I am a total wimp. I could never do a pull-up, and I can count how many push-ups I can do on one hand. I also have no endurance. Of course, I'm not sure if school will head that way yet.

hehehe just make friends with a second degree black belt or higher and is a total health nut, and ask him/her to help you train. like said my friend Lee (a secondegree black belt/Health nut/Health Guru) does 300 push ups a day and 10+ miles and weight lifts . I asked him to help me and i'm healthier than ever.

I'd take the state police test, but apparently there's a minimum height requirement for men. wtf. It's like 5'11" and I'm 5'9"
