Mose: vudukungfu: Maybe he literally had tourette'sHe wouldn't have bothered to write "go f*ck yourself" he'd just have said it...
rufus-t-firefly: It's great when an article is EXACTLY what you think it will be.
Flint Ironstag: Before I put down a new carpet once I painted a large pentangle in red paint on the floor. Hope the next owners have a sense of humour...

Hack Patooey: Helped a friend and his wife move into a new house. We were trying to get the 4-poster bed frame up these nasty twisty stairs, but couldnt quite make it fit. One of the guys there said "You know, if we took out these three stair treads, we could fit around the corner. So we did. A recipe card was stapled to the bottom of one. It read "We couldnt get the bed upstairs either"/csb
SumJackass07: "And America at war to fight Germany. Threshold 5/10/41 by Albert Stella this floor was laid."Yeah, I'm pretty sure that that isn't what it says. Considering that Germany didn't declare war on the US until Dec 11, 1941.
suburbanguy: I'm not watching that video, and I can't make it out in the pic. Can anybody tell me what that says? They don't quote it in the article.
Dull Cow Eyes: he misspelled "fack"
SumJackass07: Yeah, I'm pretty sure that that isn't what it says. Considering that Germany didn't declare war on the US until Dec 11, 1941.
voodoohotdog: I thought America wasn't at war until that faithful day when The Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
bigworld2000: There's a good chance that Mr Stella was German, you know.

Hope the next owners have a sense of humour...[www.tdpri.com image 425x319]I was going to put a tin with false teeth in one of the vents I closed up when renovating upstairs and laying flooring. My wife has vetoed it. Then later, when I was re-finishing flooring original to the house (100+ yrs old), I was hell bent on grabbing clear fluorescent paint to put up a nice body outline that would show up only under black light. Again, wife vetoed. Next time renovation time rolls around I am not asking anymore.
jaytkay: I looked up May 9 & 10, 1941 to see what was in the headlines regarding Germany.These are from the Chicago Tribune"1,000 WOMEN ASK F.D.R. TO KEEP HIS NO WAR PROMISES: 1,000 WOMEN ASK F. D. R. TO KEEP HIS ANTI-WAR PLEDGE Request Interview at White House.""The [US] government today tied up funds of I. G. Farbenindustrie Aetiengesellschaft, a German corporation, commonly known as the German dye trust, which controls numerous patents used in American industry. ""REVEAL SAILING OF U. S. SHIPS ON RED SEA ROUTE: Delivery of Aid to Britain Strongly Indicated."
Notenoughmiddlefingers: For Satan's Bunny Slippers:(Not mine, from this thread on Straight Dope: http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=403719)"[...]When it came time to lay the new tile, we had decided to get a little fancy a lay in a nice seven foot compass rose made of different colored tile. It actually points to North. So I'm thinking, what great place to leave something for people to find decades later. So, under the compass rose, I placed a treasure map.It's not really a map, per se; it's actually a maneuvering board. Basically, it's a large piece of paper that kind of looks like a RADAR scope. I drew the compass rose in the center of the paper, and an arrow pointing north-west. I drew three circles, representing trees, and in the center of those trees I drew a big "X". North-west points directly at the park outside the station, and the three tree are visible through a window when you stand directly on the compass rose and face NW.Now I just need to figure out what I'm going to bury in the park."
