And anyone else who loves to drop the beet:
Remember the Gibson Guitar shutdown a couple years back? Now look at this. I want one and I don’t even play guitar.
From the description, with emphasis added:
“The Government Series II Les Paul is crafted in the image of the original Les Paul Standard, with a carved maple top and solid mahogany back with modern weight relief for improved playing comfort and enhanced resonance. The glued-in mahogany neck features a comfortably rounded late-’50s profile, while the unbound fingerboard—with a Corian™ nut, 22 frets and traditional trapezoid inlays just like the very first Gibson Les Pauls—is made from solid rosewood returned to Gibson by the US government. And, the guitar looks superb with its unique Government Tan finish in vintage-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer.”
Thanks to Prof. Mondo for the link!
Don’t have anything to say, and don’t care. I may have something later, but probably not.
This is awesome. I lack the skills and knowledge to make such a thing, but I would be more than willing to buy something that gave me a big red button to press when I wanted to launch a rocket in Kerbal Space Program.
Never never ever get the words “decimeter” and “decimator” mixed up.
So we have a big pipe fitting that needs to be returned to the company who shipped it to us (mispackage), and the office is right next to the UPS shipping center, so I went over there to ask them how they’d suggest returning it. The nice lady there told me just to tape up the (beat up) box it came in and send it back that way. Little did I know how much the government shutdown affects… oh wait, yeah it doesn’t affect UPS shipping centers at all.
When I got back, my mother sent me an email from the local Mexican church that makes and sells delicious delicious tamales as a monthly fundraiser, and asked if I wanted any. I said “I thought they wouldn’t be able to do that this time because of how the government shut down.” Oh wait, no I didn’t say that. I said “YES PLEASE.” Government shutdowns don’t affect tamales.
Then I started writing a blog post about how the government shutdown had ruined some of the day to day things in my life, but I realized that because of the government shutdown, the internet wasn’t working, so I couldn’t work towards my new goal of 4,000 posts (passed 3,500 a couple weeks ago!). Oh wait, no, that’s not right. The internet is still here and wasting our time just as much as usual.
Who knew that government shutdowns would be so hard to live through?
