@%#^&@ Ice
« on: Jan 17, 2007, 06:36:39 PM »

This ice is pissing me off.  Slicker than hell outside my apartment.. and it slopes downhill.  I was scootin along, and just slide right off the railroad-tie ledge (2-foot drop), and crashed into the fence below...

Here's a tip for getting around on the ice...  saw it on TV and it actually works.  Get some old socks and cut the ribbed tube part off (or cut the foot part off, however you want to look at it).  Then, put the sock around your shoe at the balls of the foot.

Works great.. :woot: heel might slip around alot, but the front part will stick to the ice.  It's almost as if it slighty melts and then refreezes to the sock.

I guess if you had a really long calf-length sock then you could pull it on over past your heel.  I just have ankle-high socks though.  Suppose I could just cut the toe part out and leave the rest of the sock on.  Yep.. must remember that next time.

Documenting my game system, writing some .NET code and masturbating...Does that count for big plans?
