12 days! .... But I'm not counting, nooo, not me! I can't go as far as the hour, but somewhere around 12.30pm might be close! The device itself takes about 20 minutes to dismantle, and a few more minutes for the pins to be removed. Whack on some betadine, steri-strips, and a bandage, and all done!!

Approval to remove my metal succubus.....

Ahhhh ... My Good Banfili - I am quite certain you know how that sounds when said out loud....

SNIP

Sometimes I wonder about these new age cures... Attaching demons to people's legs... Some new kind of fad? I can understand leeches, but demons? Succubi no less! And metal too! Just imagine all the noise from her band mates at night. I've had my roommates drink and play all night at our house. And on top of that the succubus will extract your "life essence" at night! Goodness! Might be fun at first, but not a wink of sleep. And there's no telling how you'll look at the end of the process. No thank you!

You might want to bring a wrench set, and an acetylene torch if it becomes difficult to remove the shackles off the demoness. They say spraying a small amount of holy water or anointing oil makes removal a bit easier.

Neighbour had their tree cut down the other day, and my yard was still full of sawdust despite lots of sweeping. I have a lot of cheap AstroTurf type fake grass and it was just holding onto the wood chips and sawdust, and it was being trailed into the house every time I go out there.  So I got the cordless Dyson and proceeded to vacuum the grass matting like a carpet.

Worked way better than I expected, cleaned the whole yard in 20 minutes.   Grin

Vacuuming was the first idea that occurred to me…

We have artificial grass around our pool. For the last 6 months I have had to weed it. Go figure.

Alas no. They are grass and clover and things growing from the sand and soil in the artifical grass.

I've just (slightly mis-)read Sorontar's text under his picture. I though it said "All ideas have wings" to which my brain instantly added "... but only some of them crap on you." Grin
I hope I'm not the only one for whom this is true.

It is intended to expand on the "take an idea and give it wings" approach, meaning no imagination should be limited, all should be treated as possibilities ... and I like birds of prey (hence my name).

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? I can't imagine why anyone would want artificial weeds, but I imagine the future will bring just that.

Oh, the movie is great but the book is better.

However, taking the idea and making it a computer game ...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vRfNtvFVRo&feature=youtu.be

and yes, I know it was a video game, which I have seen but not played ...

and yes, I want a robotic/mechanical falcon (but I'll be happy with an owl).

Mr. Seveneves, just a word with you. Reminding you to keep politics/religious matters in check. Even though we talking about demons, present-day clergy scandals do overlap with politics, and already I'm hearing about it!

Even COVID-19 won't stop one Aussie tradition - the ice-cream/gelati van. I am busy working at home in my study, when I hear this melody from about a block away. It sounds like it comes from a cheap electronic keyboard, and sure enough, it is an ice-cream van (not the traditional Greensleeves music they often use though). With the current restrictions, we aren't allowed to leave our driveway without masks, and even then, it is not really in the spirit of the restrictions to congregate around the van spending 5 minutes to pick a combination of flavours only to be told by our parents that we can only have one scoop, but I am sure many kids will get enjoyment from a pleasant element of "normality", even though it is only Spring.

No, I didn't get one myself.
