    My wife tells me I'm in charge of Trick or Treat this year, at least to start, since it starts at 5:00 and she works till 5:30, all the candy is on the cupboard, so I say, "No Problem!";)

    So this afternoon I decide to carve one of the pumpkins we bought on the way home from our anniversary trip, been a while since I carved one, at least since the kids were home, I used to be pretty good at it...;)

    Came out fine, goofy face, ought to look good with a candle in it, then I see the "pumpkin guts" on the newspaper on the table, and remember how my Mom used to roast the seeds, and I think "Hey, 'Heart Healthy Snack!'" (I'm starting to HATE those words...:cool:)

    So I clean up all the goop from the seeds, takes me like an HOUR, it's messy and STRINGY, and my hands are gooier than when I gut a DEER, :eek:but I get the cookie sheet filled with seeds, then I crank up the oven to 400 and stick it in feeling all good about myself, :p and go and check my email....

    ....until like 20 minutes or so later I start to smell something like burnt punkin':eek:..

    Anybody know what I can do with a cookie sheet of BLACK pumpkin seeds?:mad::confused: I'm surprised the SMOKE detector didn't trip, from all the smoke in the kitchen....

    Maybe I can give them out to to the neighborhood kids I don't like....:p

    Here at TFF
    A cookie sheet with burnt pumpkin seeds on it makes a great target.

    But, don't let your wife find out. :D

    sit the sheet on the porach and put a sign on it that says
    "Please only take two Blackened seed are very hard to prepare"

  4. I think Shooter has the right idea! When the wife asks what happened to it, blame it on the Trick-Or-Treaters! :D

  6. Polish, perhaps you haven't considered the possibility that the brief amnesia you experienced might be symptomatic of a far more serious condition. My own hypothesis is that too frequent exposure to Mosin Nagants has caused your synapitic funtions to misfire. Unconsciously, you see, a deep rooted, though consciously repressed, psychological desire for Mauser rifles is in conflict with the Mosin Nagantness falsely present in your conscious mind. The only known cure for such a condition is, of course, to give in to the unconscious desire for ownership of a fine piece of Germanic designed military equipment. The unconscious mind will therefore be freed of the unfair burden imposed by the conscious mind and you will thus be cured. :D;):p

    Don't worry 'hawk, PS is actually trying to help...

    In fact I just saw an ad on TV that says laughter can add up to 8 years to your life...:p


    Is that Latin? Does it translate to "Goes Bang Every Time Trigger Pulled" or 'Reliability, Accuracy, Robustness," I forget....:p;)

    Hey PS, I thought your second major was PHILOSOPHY not PSYCHOLOGY....:p

    If so Riddle me THIS...:p

    IF a Mauser fell over in the woods, and there was nobody around to hear it...

    .... does that mean the Soviet Sniper used a SILENCER?:eek::confused:
