Hold on Ron,

Let me try and first figure out how smart blocks of ice really are. Sometimes, with real serious science like this, tricky sh*t like string theory, anything bitcoin or nanoparticle related, and some rather advanced gazebo repairs, it’s best to pick a theory first and try and work towards that proof.

To that end, I’ll start by assuming ice is indeed dumb. Like everything in life, you need to look at somethings history to know it, right. Ice wasn’t ice until it got really, really cold so, first off, it obviously left the house without a coat, not the smartest thing, we can agree. Secondly, ice if left to its own devices, seems to naturally avoid all forms of squares, even those with very slightly rounded corners. You would think this made them smart somehow right. The real answer is quite the opposite, because I believe long before the ice was ice, humans hunted the water, herded it into little blue trays and stuck them in their freezers all over the country. So the water was damned stupid right at the start, and since it stands that you can’t get to stupid ice without going through stupid water, we’ve now proven how stupid ice is. Listen, I know I simplified stuff a little, using a microcosm if you will, of the overall real environment. The science bears out this extrapolation though, Blocks of ice are what, as compared to ice cubes, just plain more, right. Now, it would stand to reason that as more and more like-minded water collects in any given area, they’re either gonna be all smart and totally avoid detection, or be all dumb and get caught right away. Unfortunately, since they’re all caught right away, they needed to go into bigger molds, aka blocks. So it stands to reason that as ice gets bigger, it gets more stupid. See, basic science.

Now Ron, Check you freezer, if you have ice cubes, I’d say your way,way smarter than a block of ice, right?

Yep. loco_engr posted on the other forum that he's moving to KC, KS. A train's a train I guess.

Bob - We got got our second one yesterday and we both are fine - except for sore arms - so no big deal in my book! No sleep issues, tired feeling, nausea etc. Guess we were lucky!
I read something yesterday that made me chuckle...you've been eating hot dogs and McChicken sandwiches all your life, but you don't want to get the shots, because you don't know what's in it???

I got the second Pfizer shot, just a sore arm 1 day later, no other after-effects. You'll just find out how YOU react after you get the shot. Everyone has a different story!

JUDY!!!! Great to see you posting! From your signature line it appears you decided to stay in CA and not move to WA after all.

I have often wondered if you still have/use that 2nd "big club thing" I made for you! I think you had said it was some kind of masher for making recipes from India. I always thought it could have also been used as a lethal weapon if need be, LOL!

I received the Pfizer shots, second one was Thursday. No reaction to either. I'm 61 not sure if that had anything to do with it but definitely glad I had no side effects. Hope everyone has the same experience I did. Be safe and Egg on.
