I figured it was an explosion proof toilet, with all the Mexican food and chili you guys eat down there.

Phall, the opening also serves as an escape route for farts , of which there are many.

Spring is unpredictable, might be 60, might be 90, might be sunny then
might have a hail storm the same day.

One week the globe is warming, the next week it is cooling.

Thats the way it has always been, and will be, no matter how much
money is thrown at it.  

Don't have plans to be at TM until the next Tri-Ennial, and can't wait for that!

Speaking of Texas chili, about 18 years ago I read the Texas Chili Cook Off joke.  I was in tears laughing so hard.

Google it - it's still easy to find.  And it's still pretty funny!

As an aside, I was born in San Antonio and lived in Houston after college a few years.  I'll have to get back down there some day!

Cheers,
Jim

Gorgeous! Love that live steam--my hat is off to those who build and maintain these amazing little machines. Thanks for sharing!

I'd love to have a toy like that but it's probably out of my price range!
