Not a Single Damn of the Day
The Daily What-
…two rock climbers enjoying a moment of peace while suspended mid-air on a portaledge, a deployable hanging tent system typically used for big wall climbs that span over several days.
!snip!
Ya, like manufacturer failure never happens.

    No sleepwalking allowed. Or any other kind of movement other than total paralysis.

    @Brad–

    I thought you said “good night” a few threads ago.

    Insomnia? Worried about turkey welfare? Burning the midnight oil (well, close) planning your move out of CA?

    I repeat, Obamy is going to put a 30 foot statue of himself on the national mall in DC. WTF!

    Ah, yes, MNP, it’s all coming back slowly. I remember the image of the pigeons, awaiting that statue. You have a long memory.

    The statue was supposed to be in place “January 2011″? And the “thousands of fans eagerly await the erection and unveiling of the giant
    Baraq Obama statue. Republican pigeons, who knew?” And Baraq spelled with a “q”? This whole thing rings a bell in my memory, from maybe 2010.

    So yes, I think it’s a joke. If BHO saw it, though, it could give him delusions of grandeur. So it COULD come true, pigeon poop or no pigeon poop.

    There’s nothing like a good book to keep your mind off the fact that you’re living on the face of death. Or that you have to pee really bad.

    Mary, I don’t think total paralysis would be a problem for me. Getting further up, or down, would be the problem.

    that’s the face of El Capitan in the Yosemite Valley. Most make it up in hours, not days. Unless they WANTED to sleep there.

    Worst part is having to crap over the edge, especially if you are part of the ground crew.

    I gotta give those two credit. I get dizzy two rungs up a ladder. Although I was rock solid when I went up to the observation deck of the Empire State Building and went through the Statue of Liberty’s head!

    This is one of those things that when suggested by a friend you answer: ‘Let’s don’t and say we did!’.
