Another electric fence story...
After having sold the farm, we moved into town next to a busy street.

My daughter's cat, used to going wherever she liked, would jump the fence and go on walkabout. Worrying that she would get skinny the easy way, I decided to electrify the fence with an old weed burner that I had left over from the farm.

I ran a wire through insulators along the top of the wooden fence and turned it on. I shortly saw said cat out in the road again and had to wonder what had happened. The fence could keep a 1500lb horse in the pasture, but not a damn cat??? Then I realized that when a horse gets zapped it is standing on the ground, thus completing the circuit allowing the zapping to commence. I then ran a ground conductor about 4 inches away from the high conductor in such a way that the cat couldn't avoid making contact with both wires. I then threw the cat out in the yard and waited, and waited, and waited, and then went to work.

When I got home the cat was once again out front, but she looked quite dazed and really wanted back in the house. Upon inspecting my handiworks in the back yard, I found a spot in the wiring that had been stretched out of shape. I figure that she jumped up to the top of the fence, got zapped, got hung up in the wiring, continued to get zapped, and finally made it over the fence.

I tightened up the wires and reset the system for another test. The cat didn't wan to go outside for several days and indeed looked a bit confused for quite some time. When she finally did want to go outside, she stayed well away from the fence. Problem solved!?!? Well it was solved until the 5 feet of snow we received the next winter, but that's another story.

» Blood

Back in the day...
I was in the US Navy and setting up for a really cool casualty drill when I noticed in the bottom of the moulage kit a rather large packet of imitation blood mix. Needless to say, I couldn't resist the urge to mix up about a gallon of the stuff. It really is amazing how much area of the inside of a submarine you can turn red with such a concoction. The old man (captain) said that while he appreciated my enthusiasm, having so many (5) casualty respondents become ill simply wouldn’t do. (Note: The language he used was not nearly as calm as my paraphrased report.) Were the hours spent cleaning up afterward worth it? You bet! I became a legend that day.

Main Engine Foundation of a Trident Class Ballistic Missile Submarine...
outboard the turbine exhaust trunk, under a bale of kim-wipes. Kind of hot and noisy, but a great place to snooze during Sunday field day activities.

That jelly shit...
in which they pack SPAM. The texture makes me wretch. Kind of like holding a huge lunger on your tounge whilst eating a ham sandwich.
