A problem getting it up

Ever have one of those days? First, we're driving around trying to find a suitable place. The parks were full of people. There used to be this big field behind Ramapo College. But since the last time I passed that way, they've paved paradise and put up a parking lot, and housing for students. The parking lot was plenty big enough, though, so we figured, what the heck. We spread out our stuff and got ready for liftoff. But no matter what we tried, no blast off. Rubbing, manipulating, changing positions didn't do the trick. I even changed batteries. Finally, we left and went home, with a look of defeat on my face.

Damn model rockets.

At Mediagora, I created Greenstein's Corollary" and it seems somehow amazing that no one has come up with this:
"In any technical discussion on a newsgroup or email list, where a technical problem exists and the discussion gets longer, the probability that Microsoft will be blamed approaches 1." Kevin Marks takes issue with this - I'm going back to respond.
