Perhaps someone asked Lincoln a question to which he replied "I don't know."

JMel: blatz514: [blogs.riverfronttimes.com image 750x600]

This reminds me of a CSB.  I created a monster at my place of employment.  My "neighbor" has a habit of walking away, even going home with his computer unlocked.  Just sitting there waiting for somebody to mess with it.  So, one day, I did.  I sent a nice juicy love note, about how *he* wanted to have another male co workers baby, loins burning for him....ect, ect, ect.  Well, everybody got a good laugh, but now it isn't safe to even walk 10 feet away from your computer and leave it unlocked.

To the CSB portion....a number of months ago, the same guy, again, left his computer.  So, being the good co-worker that I am, helped myself into his email and sent another co-worker a lovely email that consisted of nothing other than penis penis penis penis repeated a few hundred times.  As I walked away from his desk with a childish grin on my face, I happened to walk past the email recipients office....where to my horror, he was in a meeting, with his computer on a projector, with a director in his office, while on a Web-X with one of our facilities with a couple of ladies on the other end of the web-x.

His email wasn't up, but he gets that little bubble pop up giving a preview of the email.  He and the director saw it, and he thinks he killed it fast enough that the participants on the other side of the web-x didn't notice.  But the director sure did.  He got a laugh out of it....I never fessed up.  The emailer and the emailee know it was me, but the director doesn't know this, and doesn't need too.


I'm impressed you were working while in middle school

maxheck: "How do we do it? VOLUME!"

From what I understand, Cool "Disco" Dan was *hated* by other taggers. More talented sorts would spend a night doing some work that actually did look good, and then a week later along comes Cool "Disco" Dan to put his tag on top of it.


This is America. Were not impressed by quality.

Best part being, you can see where they painted over that to this day.

The federal government doesn't even recommend using pressure washers to wash marble headstones in government cemeteries (Arlington, for instance).

ncptt.nps.gov/wp-content/uploads/Best-Practices-Final.pdf

What are the chances they would be willing to use pressure washer to clean a national monument?

Absolutely zero.
They'll first have a team of Ph.D. contractors do an analysis of the damage, which will take three years and force the entire monument to be closed. Then, another contractor will come in and cut out the damaged pieces and new pieces will be carved from the same limestone or marble that was originally used. That will take five years. The the new pieces will be installed, which will take until 2024.
Everybody gets paid.


Actually, the Park Service is an organization that has it's act together. It'll be done quickly.

I happen to know the guy who was in charge of the lighting part of the Lincoln Memorial's recent renovation. Given that it was mostly paid for by private donations and everything came in on time and under budget, that might not be where you want to make an anti-government-waste rant.

This really sucks for those folks who planned on going to the LM but won't be in town long enough to wait for it to reopen.
