"It is the very error of the moon.  She comes more near the earth than she was wont.  And makes men mad." - William Shakespeare, Othello

 

Well, here we are looking down the barrel of a week that culminates on Friday the 13th with the emergence of the full moon.  Researchers tend to downgrade the lunar effects on animals and people, but I know better.  I'm starting to see that old familiar look in the eyes of my customers and people on the street. 

 

Just yesterday upon my return home, the woman of the house informs me that one of the neighbors, a paranoid schizophrenic, called the law the night before.  The neighbor told police that someone had broken into her house, and pulled all of the teeth from her cat's mouth.  A heinous crime indeed, provided the cat actually exists.  My response, "Get ready babe, this is just the beginning."

 

And to be honest, I'm starting to feel a little frisky myself.  So, if I survive the lunatic onslaught this week, and avoid prosecution for my own nocturnal indulgences this Friday the 13th, I hope to report back hopefully with an interesting story, or two.

"Researchers tend to downgrade the lunar effects on animals and people, but I know better"

Me too. The coyotes go on a howling binge, as do alot of my neighbors. The "other" kind of binge, that is.
I think this will work. I once saw it on a cartoon.

Or, on the other hand.....

Troubleshooting the appliance's complex electro-mechanical systems is the methodology in which one must, by using analyitical techniques and the process of elimination, determine the cause or causes of a specific failure. Rarely does this cause of a failure directly present itself for you to see.

So.....

To be better equipped to troubleshoot, you will need:

1.) To follow this: Safety first and foremost. Trust your instincts.
2.) Basic hand tools.
3.) A decent DVOM meter. Buy one. Borrow one. You need one.
4.) Last, but certainty not least, common sense. Most of us have it. Slow down and use it.

Now, let's have some fun!

Hope is the power that gives a person the confidence to step out and try.
Success is the maximum utilization of the ability you have.

 Just ask a police/rescue dispatcher about the effects of a full moon, always a busy night...

I think it was believed that the amount of water in the brain that, like the tide, the moon had some affect on.  So, in a selfless effort to increase the knowledge and well being of my fellow man, I'll conduct an experiment tomorrow night to test this theory, using myself as a guinea pig.

We can add a solar flare to the list for today

Affirmative.  "Solar Max has arrived".  Since Tuesday there have been three X-class coronal mass ejections, the last two twice as powerful than the first.  The third CME may affect the earth's magnetic field and possibly interrupt communications and power grids on Friday.

 

Yee Haa!   :burnin:

PDuff, you're still here!!!!! Anything to report from your "guinea pig" experiment?

Test Results of Liquid Infusion During Solar Max Full Moon on Friday the 13th:  Inconclusive.

 

Perhaps the solar flares offset the force of the full moon because my neighbors (test controls) suffered no ill effects.  But under further review, the experiment can be considered marginally successful.  I may have been the only "freed radical" running around outside in the midst of a violent lightning storm at midnight on Friday, but the wife, for some reason, has been extremely nice to me for the remainder of the weekend.  Hmmm......

 

And like ctg's dog, I can only perform my daily constitution while facing north.  Our gyroscopes must be aligned.  Hmmm.......

 

I'll have to wait until the Fourth of July to try the experiment again.  Will be adding fireworks to the parameters.

Sounds like you may have a stuck x, y, or z axis. Or a combination there of.

Perhaps it's time to bust out the test set.

Did you check your tech sheet?
