Like what? Come on, we want to hear, we want to hear! ;-)
Oh, NOOOOO!!!! I have gone over to the light side!! I'm afraid that I may
have become, through all of the pressure on the list, a "light-weighter".
That is, someone who seeks lighter weight even at an extremely high cost of
time, effort or money.
Last night I spent an hour drilling holes in the vanes of my three-vaned,
aluminum tent stakes in order to make them lighter.
The good news: Collectively, six stakes now weigh less than three ounces and
look really cool.
The bad news: Collectively, these six stakes only weigh half an ounce less
than they used to!
Half an ounce for an hour of labor. Hmmmm. I think that I get more than
that at work for my labor.
