    Reminds me of the time I got a spam tin opener & hammered it flat & that it could be used to start certain cars that had the ignition in the dashboard ( I heard this is school from one of the older boys ) I then used it to start my Dads Herald up that was parked in the garage with my younger brother in the passenger seat ,I was about 13 at the time , but unbeknown to me Dad had left the car in gear & when I started the car up it shot towards the garage doors .... Minimal damage caused to the car or garage doors , Dad only said no more driving cars until your 17 . Oh happy days & Sums my Dad up really , one chilled out man with a great outlook towards life .

    I was five when I managed to take the parking brake off a ‘55 Chevy parked in a neighbor’s driveway. My younger brother was in the passenger seat. The driveway was on a 15 degree decline back toward the street and the car had been left in neutral. We rolled backwards into the street and bounced against the far curb.

    No damage (whew!) and I thought that my mother and the neighbor lady, who both ran to try to stop the car, were funny, seeing them hustling down the stairs of her front porch ... until they caught their breath. At the time, I sort of thought it served them all right; what the hell did they think I was up to when they watched me open the driver’s door and get in? We were all lucky I didn’t find any keys in the ignition — I did look. :D

    I’m told that my first word as an infant was car.

    Speedy Mk II today...this particular watch has left and come back to me...one of the few I genuinely missed. Kudos to six-barrel for keeping it fed and watered!

    I got stopped driving round Trafalgar Square in my dad’s Zephyr with nine aboard (bench seats front and back) heading for a party or gig. The officer made me disembark four of them before letting me off with a warning!

    ...by the shores of Lake Superior where the shoreline is sandstone which sometimes forms caves.

    The 'shrooms we collected and will eat as soon as I hit "reply" here are Hedgrhog, Lobster, and the lucky prize, Lion's Mane. Wish me luck!

    Edit: adding pics of said mushrooms before and after sauteing. Really delicious! Going on 45 minutes now and no ill effects! YaY!
