Hmmm. My Canadian abilities have failed me there, Michael.

Plus, it was too small to read...

You'll notice it was posted by a Canadian - hence my superior translating abilities.
I wondered if there was any sense adding any more drivel to John's blog...

Would an AMPv2 work to measure the angle of political spin? Or would it need a redisign as an AMPv2/C? (C=Congress)

Or would that be C/AMPv2?

I haven't received my AMP2 yet but I don't believe there is any way to count spin revolutions -- just <360 degrees.

I think you'd need a strobe for that, Alex! It's more than an angle - it's RPMs!

Kind of like "Marsie Dotes and Dosie Dotes..."

My parents used to sing those. A short-lived fad, I'm imagining.

I'd like to point out that I'd figured it out long before I posted it too...

So apparently we all won. Sheesh. I wouldn't have worked so hard if I'd known it was one of those "everyone wins" deals.

Apparently nobody liked my "Instant Creativity" caulk. I thought it was pretty hilarious, having John E. coming out of the caulking gun. It's probably funnier once you've heard him go on about his creativity/design course...

I knew that my chances of getting hoards of votes would be low since a vote would likely depend on somebody spending enough time looking at it to figure it out. That's why I did a second entry.

No, I'm not familiar with Ladle Rat Rotten Hut.

Thanks for the link, Laurie.

My brain hurts. You really have to read those out loud.

By the way, Laurie, have you seen this one: Amazon.com: Mots d'Heures: Gousses, Rames...Amazon.com: Mots d'Heures: Gousses, Rames...
It's extraordinarily clever. It's three books in one. Some weird French poems, some hilarious footnotes explaining the French poems, and Mother Goose rhymes read with a thick French accent. Brilliant!

Oh, my. I now have a better appreciation of the agony I put all of you through trying to decipher my entry
