Categories: What's It Wednesday
If it were green I’d say a wedge of cabbage.
This is one of the boards I used to get beaten with as a child. I recognize the pattern from the way the bruises look. Where on earth did you find it? Mom. Dad. Is that you?
Man, you had it good. The board I got beaten with had little finishing nails sticking out of it.
I hear ya Slammy. I know what you mean. I much preferred the board to the wire brush because of the perforation issue and the difficulty of explaining the bloody seat of my pants to my teachers and friends. I think they wondered how clumsy and inattentive I had to be to sit on so many nails so often.
Bloody pants? If they assumed you were sitting on nails, that tells us you didn’t go to a Catholic school, I guess.
Nah. At a Catholic school, I’d have driven the nails through my hands and feet.
It’s a cut end of a plastic fence post or plastic floorboard.
Made of cabbage.
I see that Djerrid has been dumpster diving again. Either that, or Brian’s been “on assignment.”
This is a slice from a core sample I’m assuming was found in NCAR’s trash. You can tell it was cut improperly by the crisscross pattern of lines in the stone. Clearly, the sample itself is pumice. Likely taken from Lipari in the Eolian Islands of Italy. I’m sure they were looking for CO2 captured in the pores or something equally insidious. The TI have long been attempting to shift fiscal policy through climate change policy, mostly in an attempt to launder funds. Since Italy is a major hub of TI activity, I can only imagine what they were trying to “prove” this time.
I believe that is a piece of that semi-firm eco-friendly packing material some companies have started to use.
Here’s a closeup (not that it will help much): http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/LAaoVJQ0jaWySFKxo5US2A?authkey=Gv1sRgCKLwnqSez4ukDg&feat=directlink
It’s a piece of worm-infested (or Ubertramp-infested) wood.
Fossilized blue cheese. 🙂
I’ll second the perma-wood recycled building material from Brian.
A lot of old, pale, dried-up wood…
I don’t know what the picture is, though.
it is a dried dirty mop from a seminary
It’s the edge of an acoustic ceiling tile.
Brian got it first. It is from the top of a trash can barrel made out of that compressed plastic I saw at the park. (Trash can to the left, sidewalk and grass to the right.)
Here it is pulled back slightly: http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/u-LcjTmgM2vsHA92gtRWdw?authkey=Gv1sRgCKLwnqSez4ukDg&feat=directlink
