Taking the Scenic Route

The problem:  need to put up a pole for a satellite dish.  Do not own a pickup truck and all three of the people that can usually help aren’t available when I need them.  Requires getting an 8 foot fence post and another pipe home.  Must also have two kids in the car seats in the back seats, so inside the car is out.

The solution:  requires 2 shopping bags and a roll of duct tape.  Wrap the duct tape around the pipes to secure them together, then wrap it around the plastic bag repeatedly to make an anchor.  Shut the bags in the door and trunk.  Put on a ’safety line’ around the mirror and the bars that hold the trunk open.  No paint damage or dinging.  WooHoo!

  • Well, my version of “teaching God with science” would pretty much look something like taking genuine science textbooks that teach real science and writing YAY GOD on the back inside cover with a glitter pen.

    In other words, the instant you start altering the SCIENCE in any way, you’ve lost me.
