    Still a GOOD laugh! Back when movies/videos were FUNNY! And not trying to be POLITICALLY CORRECT. Reminds me of us moving a DEEP FREEZE down to the basement. The POLICEMAN is doing what needs to be done! LOL LOL Still chuckling.

    Candy, Should I suggest you put Stan and Ollie with the crated up piano on the steps after installation?

    I would love to do that but where can I find an ho scale of Stan and Ollie?

    I can scratch make the crate. That's the easy part. It's the boys! I need the boys!

    I finally got all of my foam board today and I've ordered a kit of foam cutting tools. Hot tools. I have to figure out how I'm going to cut the foam to match the angle of my stares when I install it. I wasn't very good at geometry in school. My teacher told me that boys are better at geometry then girls are. I don't think I like that remark, but other girls have told me that they were struggling with that form of math also. I think it's because the boys needed to figure out the correct angle for looking up our skirts. :eek:

    No one is THAT good at geometry. There's is alot of math if you wanna look up a skirt, primarily which direction to fall when you get nutted.

    Oh no! Being that I only have 11 brothers and no girls near by, I learned that skill very early.
    I was straight A in math. Including Trigonometry.
    Not so good with the ladies. :oops:

    Okay, to clear up some terminology being thrown around...

    Geometry is mostly about logic, and proving shapes (typically triangles, which are the simplest shapes) are/not similar (same except perhaps in overall size) or congruent (identical). All congruent triangles are also similar, but not necessarily vice versa. Angles are addressed qualitatively, but not quantitatively. Logical proofs of geometric properties are addressed and practiced. Geometry is often considered difficult because it is very different from preceding mathematics coursework. Problems are presented as proofs to be made, declaring a stated relationship as true, or not. As a result, there are some students who "get" geometry more easily than others, and not necessarily based on relative performance in previous mathematical subjects.

    Trigonometry addresses properties, measurement and calculations between linear and angular quantities (trigonometric functions). This is where you learn to quantitatively calculate angles, in units of degrees, radians, etc.

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming...

    That was definitely an important part of it. But I was known to be a bit slow with the nutting part.

    @BigJake just took all the fun out of geometry.:unsure:

    Interesting stuff here. I like the zombies, I could do my workplace !!

    1 87 Scale - Etsy Canada

    There are several Stan and Ollie models out there in larger scales, would be fun to shrink them like @rasputin does with vehicles.

    You can lead a horse to water, but sometimes they just want play in it.

    So, I thought about it and looked at some stuff I had, and this is what I did. I measured the height of the stares when it was perfectly level top and bottom. Then I cut a piece of wood that height. I clamped it to a draftsman's triangle. Now it will standup straight while I measure it, and without it moving. Are you laughing at me?

    None from here. That is some great work! Have you found the boys yet?
