Once upon a time, on a return trip from the cottage with a car full of my folks, my self, and I think at least 4 of my sisters, we got a flat tire on the trailer we were hauling. The trailer was full of what was left after a trip of the kind, and all the stuff that came back home with us, and so it was still pretty full. We couldn’t just leave it there and come back the next day. After driving around looking for an service station (they had those at the time, but we couldn’t find an open one) it was finally decided we would spend the night with the car and trailer at the side of the highway until the service station we did find opened. An adventure. The car was a big ol’ 1971 Chrysler ‘Newport’ and could easily transport us, but it wasn’t going to work with us all trying to sleep what was left of the night. I was lucky enough to have ended up sleeping on a lawn chair, the long kind that you could lay out flat if you wanted to, at the side of the highway between the car and the ditch. It was awesome. I lay out under the stars. The trucks roaring by were something, but it was the crickets I’ll never forget. I’m brought back to that exact time when ever I hear a lot of crickets. There were so very many of them all ‘chirping’ in such an endless wave, I don’t know if I fell asleep or into a trance.
Uhmm… yeah, you’re going to need to turn this up to get the full effect.
FWIW: A translation of “bis zum erbrechen schreien” at babelfish.yahoo.com results in “Up to vomiting cry” Google says it’s “Until vomiting scream” … both work for me as far as the video is concerned, I do like the tune for some reason ;o) All technopop should be in German.
If you put the dial above 3 you aren’t going to get anything but charcoal out of the thing. It doesn’t matter if the product you put in it is dense or porous, it’s going to burn. Why not adjust the elements or the resistance of the control circuit to max out at whatever setting equals 3 now ?
It’ll make it a safer toaster since accidentally moving the dial or slider to the MAX position will result in an overdone or slightly burnt piece of toast, instead of the glowing piece of coal the current system would provide. It would also give a greater range of browning for bread or bagels because, lets face it, half of the resolution of the current system is wasted. I’ve never owned a toaster that was of any use above the half way point of the dial, so it’s not just the one I currently use that is like this. Why hasn’t one engineer at a small appliance manufacturer ever looked into this poor design ?
I think that if your my age, or so, this is likely a song you forgot you loved. It was always nice to pick up an album for the 2:30 – 3:00 min songs, and get this one at 7:10 and I heard it through the grapevine for 11:07.
