A little mojo mix for the holidays. Remeber no drinking and driving, we need everyone here safe and sound:
This is a copy of a post first made by relic, in the [H]ard|OCP computer forum back about 8 years ago.


The Mojo Story

..and so it began....
...sitting on my kitchen floor, building a new DC box while indulging in some of the finer versions of ethanol-based liquid refreshment. Halfway through the boxen building, I realized two things....

1. I was out of good scotch.
2. I hadn't started mixing the "mojo" for the party.

Now "mojo" is a particularly vile mixture of pure grain alcohol, Cherry CoolAid powder and chunks of citrus fruits. (Please note the lack of water or any other diluent)

Mojo recipe:
4 gallons (~16 litres if you care) of 97% ethanol.
8 packages of sweetened cherry Cool Aid.
various oranges, limes, lemons, old shoes...cut into large chunks
Mix thoroughly, with bare hand, while chanting "Nothing good can come of this."
Place outside in snow to cool. (keep animals away! This stuff may kill anything smaller than a camel!)

Somewhere around the "mix thoroughly" part, the whisky, which I'd been drinking to aid in building the new DC box, kicked me in the back of the head......Hard.

This scattered my data, and made my numbers go all random, causing a nasty chain reaction of stumbling, losing coordination and dumping 4 gallon of noxious red liquid into a brand new tbird.

I don't mean "splashing a little on the box". I mean pouring 4 gallons of mojo directly into an open case, a direct hit on the northbridge. Now, as we all know, cases are not watertight. The mojo started escaping into every corner of the kitchen. I sprang into action in an attempt to contain the dangerous stuff.

Unfortunately "springing into action" isn't very easy to do when you've just polished off a bottle of whisky. So I sort of "stumbled into mayhem" instead.

My left foot placed itself directly into the PC case, crunching parts galore, my right foot then decided it wanted no part of this and left for vacation. This had the unfortunate result of leaving me with no means of maintaining my upper body's position above the floor.

Please pause here for a visual reference.

relic, dumbfounded look on his face, stained red to his crotch with mojo, one foot in a PC case, the other slipping radiply away causing an awkward "splits" position...with floor awash in red liquid.

I did the only thing I could do. I fell forward, leading with my face, into the ocean of mojo on the floor.

The resulting splash was absolutely amazing.

Bright-red, ethanol-disolved coloring reached the ceiling.

Tendrils of mojo snaked past the cabinet doors and coated the clean dishes and food in the pantry. The telephone immediately took on a pastel pink color as the mojo ethched it's way into every surface.

The moral of the story? If you remember nothing else I've said....at least remember this....never build boxen on the kitchen floor. Happy new Year.

Now if we could just rub off on the rest of the forum... Maybe even the world... We would be set

I'm good with wherever the Mod's want the thread.... as long as it stays in one of the Z sections, It is after all the House of Z!!!!

Oh yeah!

December 7th. I was just thinking about the crew on the Arizona. 1,177 shipmates died together. We can't let our children and future generations forget how many... My Dad is 94 and was a B-25 dive bomber pilot in WWII. He always says the real heroes never made it home. I like to think they did. They went home to another Father.

After all these years it is still eery pulling into Pearl Harbor. You cant help but think about what happened in the same waters that you are floating in.

The Day That Will Live In Infamy. 12-7-41. I pondered that today. The only reference to that I saw was on on Fox News. Almost forgotten. So sad. Some of "The Greatest Generation" still live. Most are gone. Please hold those amongst us from that period dear and near to your hearts. Cherish them. Never forget Pearl Harbor Day. My parents were amongst that generation. My Dad was a radio operator /gunner on Super Fortress B-29's flying over "The Hump" out of Karachi Pakistan (CBI Theater) into China until he went down in '43. The Blood Chit on the back of his flight jacket saved his life. I still have it. My Mom helped make TBM"s (Avenger torpedo bombers) at the West Trenton GM plant. I am so proud of them.

I've been to the Arizona Memorial. I saw my wife's cousin's name up there. Price was his name. I can have no higher level of respect for any person than for those who serve our nation to guarantee our freedom.

Mac I think you and I have talked about this before.

I've had the very distinct pleasure of flying channel guard in that harbor while my carrier was pulling in to Pearl....

I will never ever forget those 2 hours of flight time... being able to fly over the Arizona to see her sitting on the bottom... 2 hours of almost complete silence from the crew.... we barely spoke... We just didn't have the words to describe what we were feeling.

I've been there twice... It is IMVHO the most powerful memorial I've ever seen...

I think we have discussed it numerous times.......

It's one of those topics that people have to chime in on!
