When was the last time you did something for the first time?

I typed rutabaga in the Shout Box last night for the first time.

I kinda knew I was setting myself up for the mundane.

I'm not expecting anyone to say that just last week, they got whacked on crack and had a bi 3-way with the Beckhams at the Marina del Rey Ritz.

If you think real hard, you may realize that it's been quite some time since anything significant has been a first.

You are correct Bob. The mundane graph is creeping upward every year.

I did try snowboarding instead of skiing this year.
I won't try to fool you. It wasn't pretty.

Oh, how about this one. I tried Levitra instead of Viagra for the first time.

Now we're getting somewhere.

And...?

I'm pretty sure no one wants you to get technical, but did you come away feeling one was preferable?

I don't know anyone who has tried all three for a complete opinion. The children here are laughing, but in 20 years or less, they'll be very glad that the r & d is already as old as they are.

Evil joke I had to include: Was there any change noticed by your hand?

There ya go! Das cool. If you think about it, nothing you've ever done for the first time was very pretty, now, was she it?

Hmm... somebody's been inspired by the lyrics from the new Van Halen album. cool

I liked that line too.

Over the last year, I've had a bunch of "firsts", and hardly any of them have been any fun. I need to rectify that over the next year!

Wound my own torsion and compression springs by hand.

Also, the first few weren't pretty but I kept at it until the correct number of coils fit into the correct length with fairly even coil spacing.

Stress relieved them in the oven at 500F for an hour and let them slowly cool. They're not "commercial perfect" looking, but they fall within the correct range, and they weren't available commercially.

0.043 music wire doesn't look very thick until you try to get 16 coils of it into a free length of 1 5/8".
