Were is Old English for man. So a werewolf, is a man-wolf. A female werewolf would be a wyfwolf. wyf pronounced weef, means woman, not wife, but we got there anyway eh?

Speaking of were, weregilt is the blood price paid for killing a man. Man-gold. Kill anyone you liked, as long as you paid the price in gold.

making a homemade screwdriver isn't as hard as you may think. it can be done just with a hammer, a cylindrical piece of metal, and a knife sharpener.

Vanadium, and heat treating are what make screwdrivers resist being damaged from use, and what makes them last over the years.

You could probably home forge vanadium chips into the iron with a bag or so of charcoal and a bellows.

Heat treatment of metals is still more of an art than a science. You can't just read a book and get it right every time. You have to be taught by another heat treater.

They're starting a cow poop facility to generate methane for power generation over in Boardman. They expect to expand soon. There's more poop unused. S***'S piling up. Maybe soon, they'll stop taking an extra $6 per month from my gas utility bill to pay for it.

did you know that when you pop the flame guard off a lighter, you can use a pair of pliers to change the amount of butane that is shot out of the lighter? thus a bigger flame. if you turn it all the way though, it will explode in a ball of fire, trust me. i'm a doctor a fireman a..........redneck

Booze is radioactive!

In fact, if it isn't radioactive, it is considered to be unfit for human consumption.

You see, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms tests liquor for radioactivity. Alcohol made from petroleum and not grains, is not radioactive, but your good old "neutral grain spirits" are. It's that carbon 14 again.

If I remember right, it is 400 counts per minute that is the trigger number. Lower and the booze is bad, make you go blind kind of thing.

Yeah, don't drink it if it is over 9,000!

Boogie Woogie music was music created to the rhythm of a train going down the tracks. Boogie Woogie was originally a slang term for the ties of the tracks. Lay down the boogie woogies.

The World's Columbian Exposition — also known as The Chicago World's Fair — was a World's Fair held in Chicago in 1893 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the New World in 1492.

The exposition covered more than 600 acres (2.4 km2), featuring nearly 200 new buildings of classical architecture, canals and lagoons, and people and cultures from around the world. Over 27 million people (equivalent to about half the U.S. population of 60 million) attended the exposition during its six-month run.

Notable firsts at the fair
  • Phosphorescent lamps (a precursor to fluorescent lamps)
  • Neon lights
  • F.W. Rueckheim introduced a confection of popcorn, peanuts and molasses, it was given the name Cracker Jack in 1896.
  • Ferris Wheel
  • Juicy Fruit gum
  • Quaker Oats
  • Cream of Wheat
  • Shredded Wheat
  • The hamburger was introduced to the United States
  • Milton Hershey bought a European exhibitor's chocolate manufacturing equipment and added chocolate products to his caramel manufacturing business.
  • The United States Post Office Department produced its first picture postcards and Commemorative stamp set.
  • United States Mint offered its first commemorative coins: a quarter and half dollar.
  • Contribution to Chicago's nickname, the "Windy City". Some argue that Charles Anderson Dana of the New York Sun coined the term related to the hype of the city's promoters. Other evidence, however, suggests the term was used as early as 1881 in relation to either Chicago's "windbag" politicians or to its weather.
  • Scott Joplin's performance at the exposition introduced ragtime to new audiences. The exposition attracted attention to the Chicago ragtime scene, led by patriarch Plunk Henry and exemplified in performance at the exposition by Johnny Seymour.
  • Violinist Joseph Douglass achieved wide recognition after his performance there and became the first African-American violinist to conduct a transcontinental tour and the first to tour as a concert violinist.
  • The first Indonesian music performance in the United States was at the exposition.
  • A group of hula dancers led to increased awareness of Hawaiian music among Americans throughout the country.
  • Stoughton Musical Society, the oldest choral society in the United States, presented the first concerts of early American music at the exposition.
  • The first Eisteddfod (a Welsh choral competition with a history spanning many centuries) held outside of Wales was held in Chicago at the exposition.
  • The “clasp locker,” a clumsy slide fastener and forerunner to the zipper was demonstrated by Whitcomb L. Judson.

Sounds like it was a pretty big deal huh?  Wonder why I never heard of it in school.   :o
