R2D2 Progress Update - 10/24/2012

I am VERY happy with how things have turned out, and R2 is starting to look more like....well, R2 all the time! The outer skins are bonded with a combination of VHB tape and silicon. Don't ask why, it's proprietary!!

Here are a few pictures of R2's current state! As with the dome, all doors are secured with silicon so that they can easily be removed in the future when I decide to hinge them!
















As always, here's a link to my full blog, and the website for the R2 builders.

Normally, I do not utter nary a peep nor a chirple when my tireless efforts are ignored, passed by, and generally neglected, Mr. Phobia. I have come to accept it.

But come on ... "Help us Obie Wan Knobel! You're our only hope!"? In a thread about R2D2? In an Chiefs environment such as this?

I weep for humanity.

Oddly enough I was looking at something else by that author I quoted. E.B. White wrote this for Here Is New York published in 1948:


The subtlest change in New York is something people don't speak much about but that is in everyone's mind. The city, for the first time in its long history, is destructible. A single flight of planes no bigger than a wedge of geese can quickly end this island fantasy, burn the towers, crumble the bridges, turn the underground passages into lethal chambers, cremate the millions. The intimation of mortality is part of New York now: in the sounds of jets overhead, in the black headlines of the latest edition.

All dwellers in cities must dwell with the stubborn fact of annihilation; in New York the fact is somewhat more concentrated because of the concentration of the city itself and because, of all targets, New York has a certain clear priority. In the mind of whatever perverted dreamer who might loose the lightning, New York must hold a steady, irresistible charm.

Well, had I posted a detailed essay on the subject of frog innards and their significance in modern day eschatology, it would have gone over equally well, I suppose.

Great.

I feel your pain. I really do. 90% of the posts I made that I found to be my funniest posts ever were ignored. We're strange people who laugh at over-the-top things. Plus there are a lot of morons on this site who don't get high-brow humor.

In High School Biology I earned an "A" while dissecting a frog. I was one of the very few students who perfectly exposed the frog's brain. Does that help at all?

I can dig that, Mr. listopencil.

There is a subtle and strange fragility to New York that exists beneath its hardened exterior of which most people are unaware ... and understandably so.

In an odd way, it does. It really does.

Thank you.

The thing that really bothers me is this; how many times do you have the opportunity to float the phrase, "Help us Obie Wan Knobel! You're our only hope!" entirely in context?

I mean ... like, maybe ... once in a friggin' lifetime? Or less?

Jesus.

That's good to hear. My job here is done. With perfect timing, in fact, I can feel the Ambien beginning to do its work. Good night.

I like that its being built on the kitchen table. To me that adds significantly to the oddity of it all.

If you expand the scale and include refrigeration capabilities it could be a keg cooler.

And then every bad life moment, every missed FG, INT, Pioli draft pick, or newly discovered grey hair.

"Help me Obie Wan! You're my only hope!"

I'm sure there's a name for it. Obviously my lack of attending keggers' is about to become painfully exposed.

The pull tab tap thingie that you get pull on to get the beer, /insert name & crude nickname for this poster/, where would the pull tab thingie be mounted?

________________________________

And if it's mounted on the head of R2 would someone have to stand by with a clipboard in their hand counting how many times the head spun one way, that way you knew how many times it needed to spin back the other way.

I know the perfect person for that position. He's a professional at it. He got promoted from the original position to running a stationary pull tab for about 4 years but repeated calls to management over spillage & half poured cups of refreshments, dirty/used cups has him back to his calling (professional clipboard operator). They're concerned that he tried blaming the keg company & are looking into it.

He was never any good running the show but no one does a better job @ maneuvering a ink stick as him.
