Oooops... Irish Messed Up His Maff...


  During a discussion this morning it was brought to my attention that there are 5 eggs.

On retrospection I fucked up and only counted 4 in my math teaser.

Miss S is number 49

Here is what I had

Titanic  1912

Airplanes 3

Drinks 2

Carrots 7

Moonshine XX - 20

Toothpicks 3

Eggs 4  ( with the extra one on my face )

My math was 1912/39 = 49.02  (my note said use the whole number and disregard the decimals)

with the extra egg  1912/40 = 47.8 <  So , if you got this, congratulations.

My apologies.

Thanks to Bear Claw for straightening my ass out.

Here is Miss S for your morning viewing.

Friday Femme Fatale Farrago... On Tap This Evening We Have A Submittal.. Shall We Play A Game?


     It's been a while since we have had some lovely ladies that are fans of TFI share some

of the goods.  This evening we have the honor of Miss S sharing a submittal.  

Here's how to find her:

What year did the Titanic Sink, becoming a major maritime disaster?

Now Add all the following items together:

The number of airplanes in this post.

The larger number of drinks your liver hears.

The number of carrots.

The Roman numeral on the hillbilly moonshine.

The number of toothpicks.

The number of sunny side eggs.


Now,  divide the year the Titanic sank by the sum of all those items.  

Use the whole number result, disregard the decimals.

Enjoy .

Sign Of The Times... What Are You Seeing In Your Industry?...


   In 'my' current employment we deal with the "training" for diversity and inclusion and assorted other 

feelz good stuffs that corporate America is fond of pushing lately.  We are dealing with the 

typical hiring issues and lack of talent candidates as well as no shows to interviews.

  One of my friends owns his own specialty manufacturing company. It's not a large concern but 

does well enough for him to make a good living for the family.  In an email thread we were

discussing being busy and lack of help.  His response was so typical of the working environment

that we are experiencing:





Same here… my Top Engineer has decided to move on after 15 years, and I’ve been scrambling to replace him, and of course we’re very busy.

The Biden economy is making these Millennials jump ship for more money, and here in **  with (large defense contractor 1 ), (large defense contractor 2), and all their suppliers making offers I can’t meet, has made it tough…

The real problem is these young kids coming out of Engineering School are idiots, especially the women and minorities. Telling these people, they’re qualified is a joke if they haven’t taught them even the basics.  But that would be OK if they didn’t come with the “know-it-all” attitude. I guess this is the result from getting trophies for just showing up.

I’m getting too old for this shit.

Back In 1956 A Series Of Errors Led To The Collision Of Two Ships...


The Andrea Doria and Stockholm Captains made decisions that led to the collision, and ultimate sinking,of the Italian Ship the Andrea Doria.

   Traveling at close to full speed, the ships did not see each other until they were just one mile apart. In a series of tragic mistakes, with lights obscured by the fog, both captains turned their vessels in the wrong direction as they tried to keep a safe distance. By the time they recognized the danger, it was too late. The Andrea Doria could not get out of the way of the ship bearing down on her.


Here we see a modern day re-enactment....
