Errol--

That helped quite a bit . . . thank you!

I don't have a lathe, but I can duplicate the technique on my mill using the rotary table. Actually seeing the tool bit was helpful for me, too. (I am pretty much a dismal failure grinding tool bits, but I can grind that one!)

"The maitre d' was haughty and introduced us to an even haughtier waitress. She gave us this scpiel about all the marine life and how important all of it was to the eco system and how fortunate we were to have the opportunity to see it up close and on and on and on. I finally got sick of it. In my best lecture-hall, drop dead serious voice, I asked, "Are they all on the menu?"

A number of years back we were visitng a Baltimore restaurant and when the waitress asked what I would like I asked for the half broiled chicken, but I specified, I would like a left half if possible. When she asked why I explained that most chickens are right footed so the left half tends to be more tender. It's a wonder my wife will be seen in public with me after all these years!

Somehow, my wife tolerates me. 8)

Harold / all,
Next time you go out for breakfast ask for a couple of scrambled chicken embryos.
The first time I did that my wife turned green and tried to crawl under the table.

I didn't find anybody serving fertilized eggs, or scrambled bodies. Just the thought that eggs were chicken embryos was enough to get a reaction. But haven't you ever seen an egg with a blood spot in it??

All--

I was a railroader in my early youth. When it was time to eat lunch, I would ask who wanted some old dead birds.

I once had a boss who was a strict vegetarian, and really wanted to be a vegan, but couldn't quite manage to make it. He loved to pontificate on the superiority of that "lifestyle", and generally insisted on vegetarian/vegan restaurants when we (he and his team-leads) went out for lunch. One day, as we sat in a quiet up-scale vegetarian restaurant, and I was yet again forced to make do with a fruit desert bowl to go with my weird tea (Seattle area), we had to endure another of his expositions on the subject. Several neighbor tables were clearly listening in as they offered nods of encouragement and agreement at key points. I waited till he was done, then responded in a clear voice (didn't want to be rude to those so interested folks at the surrounding tables) with, "It's obvious that many people would agree with you, but I just don't feel satisfied if I don't have a slab of dead animal with every meal, preferably fried." He turned the most interesting shade of very pale green (normally he was just pale), and several people at surrounding tables appeared to be having trouble swallowing their food (or perhaps keeping down what they had previously swallowed?). Oddly enough, after that, I was often "excluded" from those little lunch events. The manager, concerned with my feeling excluded, explained that this was out of concern for *my* sensibilities. Ahhh, that's better...

Yes I have seen a lot of them. Used to help my Grandpa candle eggs when I was small. But a blood spot is not an embryo.
