  3. Re: Miami Weather Forcast - Chilly with a Chance of Falling Iguanas

    We don't have the infernal reptiles this far north, but the temps got perilously close to freezing. I hate winter. Mistakenly thought we were far enough south to escape it.

    There's a story of some nitwit who thought they were dead, put a bunch of 'em in his car to take them for "disposal"... they warmed up in the car. He crashed.

    You may have the timing 180 out. And I misinformed in my post above. I.E: the points trigger the coil to dump as they ~just~ open.

    The Russians have played fast-n-loose with nuclear fission since Claus Fuchs gave away the farm. Same old question: "Who would give a six-year-old a loaded firearm?"
