The Nokia candy bar phones were awesome. I ran over mine once (left it on the tailgate and forgot about it) and it never even noticed. They don't work too well as teethers, though.

#11: That is certainly not how to fill a fire engine, but that is what happens when you try to use a water source without considering where you're placing the 45,000 pound vehicle.

#16: I may have been a Yankee all my life, but I will forever refer to my Army duty stations as Fort Gordon, GA and Fort A.P. Hill, VA. Fuck those woke pieces of shit.

I bought my brother a version of that engineering shirt, with helpful pictures. He's worn it to shreds, while doing most of the things listed on it.

My most memorable experience with thermal shock was with, get this, a Thermal Shock Chamber. It had a powerful heater on top, liquid nitrogen cooling on the bottom, and a hydraulic lift that would move the test article from hot to cold and back, under the control of a computer that monitored some thermocouples and recorded data.

One Monday morning I checked in on one running a life-test. When I opened the door, I knew something was wrong when I heard the alarm panel beeping. Then I could smell hydraulic fluid. I turned the corner and saw a puddle of fluid on the floor. Then I looked up. A large portion of the ceiling was covered in ice. I don't know how much a tanker truck of liquid nitrogen costs, but apparently when it broke it drained the equivalent or more in a day or so.

The only difference between fairy tales, war stories, and sea stories is how they begin.
A fairy tale begins "Once upon a time..."
A war story begins (approximately) "Absence of fecal matter, there I was..."
A sea story begins "Now this is no lie..."
They all end "I'm Brian Williams, NBC News."
