The China Syndrome, Chemically Activated Nuclear Fusion and IKEA
This morning must have been one of the wettest morning we have had living here, it was very very wet indeed and a little trip to Shrewsbury to get a bit of wood only proved that it was also very very wet in Shrewsbury too. However right now sometime after eight o’clock in the evening the sun has come out and we have blue skies and all is hunky dory again.
The result of this is that I have not been outside much today, but I have made myself useful by tinkering with electrical things. Nothing too clever just an IKEA 12v lighting system. They are rather sneaky those IKEA folk because although good at design they never quite get it right and tend to make their electrical things a bit on the margin. So transformers are always near the max limit etc etc.
This gives me the opportunity to improve things a bit and tweak, so that some of these things from IKEA will be brighter, faster, longer and make a bigger bang when they explode. We all like a good explosion although not just above the dining table as everyone is eating their evening meal. Dad says this is why he prefers steam powered things with a bit chemically activated nuclear fusion, Nano technology with analogue streamed data feedback looping technology and lots of gears and oily bits.
Captain Nessman is now slowly preparing for his epic adventure in
. I decided that I would celebrate
this event by piling all the china in the house into a tall slender tower; for
a short time one of the wonders of the world, until Heavy Harry the Cat noticed
what he thought was his food bowl. Silly cat, he should know his food bowl is
made of plastic not mums best antique china from the imperial Russian Vaults
used by President Vladimir Putin himself for his Coco Pops at Breakfast time. WOW
that antique china is loud much louder than an exploding IKEA 12v lighting
system, I did explain that it was the cat’s fault and the tower was entirely
safe up to that point, but mum still said IDIOT that’s not fair. Heavy Harry
the Cat is happy, he has realized his plastic food bowl is in fact still OK and
is demanding more food and has set off Sooty the Cat too now….. China
I think I will return to doing electrical things again…..
Oooo by the way it may sound a bit odd but we have a ghost postman posting ghost post things through the letter box …….. A bit odd but these things happen…
