Error insufficient caffine level, apply more , no I meant ear buds. Though a few years ago back in my student days I 'lost' many pairs of socks and worryingly awoke in a friends house to find a pair I had 'lost' before in my pocket. I dread to think of the how and why...
I love that the so called "tangle proof" guitar cords are the most difficult to untangle. Cord organizers only serve to allow several different types of wire to wrap around each other so that you remove all of them trying to get the one off the rack. I never let two sets of earbuds to be within a few feet of each other lest they conspire to demonstrate a knot that is far superior to any that I learned as a Boy Scout... It's not just wires, electronic tools like oscilloscopes and meters are proof of evolution in so much as they will spontaneously sprout legs and walk away never to be seen again.
Turn your back on a 'scope it walks, unless it's an old one with a CRT and a funny smell when powered on they do appear to have lost there locomotive powers, snips even blunt ones can run and hide though...
Yesterday, one of the team phoned my office and said something to me that I had been waiting for a long time...well 19 months since I joined, but not that I'm counting.
I headed outside and across the bridge to one of the other platforms, headed up to the helideck and looked out over the water towards to Iran, there was a massive level of activity in the water over a large area, easily at least a few km2.
There were whale sharks lounging around, there where also whales (not sure what species) clearly rising out of the water and shoals of fish manically moving around, jumping etc. Watching and listening to the sounds of the blow, the sun and calmness of the Arabian Gulf and just getting to see nature unfold in front of you.
Just to top it all off, I went down for my lunch just after this and it was nice juicy steak.....nom nom nom.
