He's back! Hide the women and children. Answered

Hi there, all you groovy Instructables folks!

After an extended absence due to vacations, visiting relatives, intermittent router failures and general "life happens" stuff (not necessarily in that order), I have returned to haunt the boards once again. I have missed this crazy place, and am looking forward to catching up with all the stuff that went down while I was gone.

First order of business is to find out who this goober is that is accusing me of stealing one of my instructables from him. Sheesh.

I know, right? Be on the lookout for his next post where he claims to have "invented" the idea of using Altoids tins for purposes other than storing Altoids.

And then the post after that where he claims to have "invented" knex guns and was the worlds first knex gunner (spammed on over 3000 knex ibles no less)

Hee hee hee. Can't wait until my set arrives so I can sit all my Instructapals on my face, too.

Wait, that didn't come out right....

I thought that was what it was about, you know how these big rock bands like to spend their time when they're not working...

Glad to see you made it back, nothing like those "general "life happens" stuff " to test one's patience and ingenuity. (Especially the patience!)

Yep it just like the home(the State Home of r the Chronic Builder!), and your here on new crayon day! . Seriously, this place is a treat, you never know whats going to show up next, and then I have to go and build it to see if I can!

New crayon day? Good, I didn't miss the part where they start handing out blunt-ended scissors.

Ah, an upgrade from the battery powered one? The hand crank type work better then they did....

Chalk eraser cleaning day was always a bonus to fire up the vacuum eraser cleaning machine...with the bag off.

vacuum? We had to take them outside and clap them together to clean them (dog gone young whipper-snappers, always dependent on technology to do their work for them LOL).

Erasers? When I was young, we had to clean the chalkboard with our tongues! And we were grateful for the calcium! Kids these days....

You had chalk!!! We had to engrave it into the rocks by ourselves, and that's tricky with the ill tempered chisels we had in them days. These kids today, have it far too easy. never had to walk to school (miles each way and up hill both ways!) sigh!

man, I had to trek miles down to the river delta just to scrounge up some special mud and haul it back up to the cave to do fingerpainting on the wall.

scissors????? That's hardly an instructa-addict's choice, I use a solar powered hydrogen/oxygen torch breaking down urine to cut my way through the fence around the 'home' to make my weekly run for parts! Be here on Wednesdays, the gal that hands out the new crayons is trying to get us some of the 'red ink' pens the government uses and we're going to adapt them into high capacity pneumatic powered paint guns.

Well...I got tons of samples of government red tape and free cases of attitude. Nothing cuts through that.

I wonder of they could cap the well with that stuff?

That was the original problem. The well was surrounded by it.

I replied to him and explained that I didn't rip him off, and hopefully that will be the end of it.
Sure was a lovely thing to see right off the bat after being offline for a while. Not.
