arachnophobia was one of my favorite scary movies when i was a kid.
freaked me the fug out.
Me and a friend cleared out half a theater one time watching this movie when it first came out.
We went to the movies one weekend after hearing how awesome it was. When the movie was over we had the afternoon left with nothing to do, so we got some more popcorn and soda and sneaked into the theater, and sat towards the very back to watch it again.
There is a scene in the movie, I don't recall the exact specifics of it, it's been so long ago. There are all these baby spiders in a large sac hanging from the rafters in what I believe was the barn. During this scene the sac busts open and all of these spiders fall out. At this exact moment, already knowing what would happen, my friend and I reached into our popcorn buckets grabbed up the largest fists full of popcorn we possibly could and then flung popcorn in the air and down onto the spectators in front of us. The fallout was one of the most memorable and hilarious things I have ever witnessed. One of the hardest times I have ever laughed. Were we assholes? Yeah, sure we were. But we were just dumb teenagers having a fun a the theater. Good times.
Hang in there man, my thoughts are with you. Maybe you can find some comfort in knowing that, at 96 years old she has so far lived life to the fullest of possibilities that many of use hope to reach ourselves. Your G'ma is a serious trooper.
I hope for your neighbor's sake, you are friendly with them. It would be a damn shame if they had to sit there and smell that a couple of times a month and not get any. I would probably move.
Oh hell yea, in fact the neighbor immediately next door was the one who donated the axle. When ever we are thirsty we fire it up and people just show up with beer and other lovely elixirs. Good times.
Have made some new friends that way too. One of them we noticed would always come out and check his mail every time we would fire it up, knowing damn well the mail hasn't ran yet. I finally said, dude stop slobbering and come over. He obliged and brought some cold beverages.
We were smoking some chickens and boar that day.
And here is the front view. You can see the firebox here.
Did a few things this past weekend actually. This is a custom built smoker we put quite a bit of work into. Turns out we realized we would need to put this thing on an axle in order to move it around. You can't tell from this angle but the firebox is actually a lowboy 50 Gallon water heater. I'll see if I can dig up a pic from the other side.
Close to a 100lbs of pork shoulder slow and low. Did this one for a charity event last year.
The last time the Panthers won was on Oct 5th, my birthday. I wear a panthers jersey every Sunday for the game and with a win on my birthday I walked away pleased. The following Sunday I wasn't able to watch the game or wear a jersey or anything, as I was stuck out of town. We lost. The Sunday after that I didn't wear a jersey because...I don't know maybe I was just depressed over the previous weeks loss. We lost again.
Since oct 5th I have not put on a jersey and we have lost every single game since. This thread has inspired me, I will be donning a Panther jersey for the game this Sunday hell or high water and turn this franchise around, or at least get a win at best. Bank on it!
