    Thanks for the plug guys. However, I'm out of stock on the flux kits until July 4th. But I do have a couple Sexithiophene kits available.

    I've got some extra ones at the Station. . . . . . . . . . But they are ALF Chrome Yellow!

    On a side note, my four year daughter asked me the other day "what do the red fire trucks do daddy?" I told her "Honey they bring the Yellow trucks water while we fight the fire!"

    More likely, if they sent the yellow trucks to tag hydrants, every time they stopped a gaggle of school kids would try to get on.

    I still don't see what you're saying... a gaggle works according to those definitions...

    I wasn't being critical.

    I found the use of gaggle humerous.

    Just like yellow fire trucks.

    They do seem to fit together.

    I think that children actually only travel in gaggles. That is the official word for a group of children, like a school of fish, a pride of lions, or a stink of lawyers.

    Memphis has them on their rigs for the people who are driving phone booths and/or have their heads so far up their [CENSORED] that they can't see the big red trucks in the same lane fighting a fire or attending to a wreck scene.

    Count the cops at the next crime scene.
    The correct term for a number of cops is a dozen.You were close but we were looking for " a dozen cops".
    Thanks for playing and Carol Merrill will give you a lovely parting prize.
