Faces in the boat...

Post by Tim » Thu Jan 25, 2007 9:19 am

This poor guy looks a bit put out. Perhaps it's because it looks as if he's either been riddled with bullets, or has a stunning case of adolescent acne.

hmmmmmm, when I saw a face in a pic of Glissando a couple of years ago, someone suggested that I was "strange".

That's not acne, it's war paint.
The PO sold Allen a tale about the origin of the name. The REAL story is that "Kaholee" was a legendary Navajo warrior who drank himself to death, and so his spirit was cursed to spend eternity afloat, watching other people drink.

While I find it simply incredible to believe that I could ever have suggested such a thing, that doesn't insulate me from being called "strange" now, or in the future!

Suddenly they're everywhere.

Granted, the forward facing Triton ports almost make it too easy, but since this is the "ramblings" section...

You may all get a group rate at the local counseling clinic.

I don't have a picture and have since installed the part but about 2 months ago I was working late to get some cabinets together in the settee area. When I lifted my head out into the cockpit to grab the next piece of wood an alien was looking back at me. Turned out the alien looked more like ET and the face was from the grain pattern on the wood.

I feel embarrassed saying this but I was quite surprised and scared like a child when I saw it.

Wish I had a picture, and a hidden camera to record the reaction.

(Why is it that Tritons in particular seem to present so many "faces"? I guess it's a combination of so many being worked on and their natural gift of personality.)

There is citation in the Journal for Abnormal Construction of a study done by the Center For Gnomic Research entitled, Drone. How Sanding with Earplugs and Respirator is a Method of Sensory Deprivation Leading to Psychosomatic Manifestations of Silliness. This study furthers the work of famed silliologist Bernard Boof PhD. He established his famous "Silliness Quotient" based on his understanding of Monty Python and his relationship with his pet armadillo during his seminal work at the University of Esperanza. Clearly we here at the Plastic Classic Forum have a standard of determined silliness that can even be felt by the average lurking layman nee "physician". Just to be complete, the findings of the study on SERMSDPMS found that there was conclusive if not determinate proof of a correlation if not an actual causation between time spent around humming things and the incidence of facial recognition in non-facial objects. I am only here to help. Boats are difficult and serious. Water will kill you. Drone on big brother.

For further clarity I should say The Center for Gnomic Research is into little people in the garden and not sundials.

This could be from a boat galley, but is actually from another type of "Plastic Classic" project - a mid-70s molded fiberglass camper. I couldn't resist posting it. It just looks so scandalized!
