    another humorous item prototype

    i call this one the genuine minnesota sundial. accurate day and night. you only need to point the arrow to the east, and the instructions that are included, take it from there.

    Enjoy,

    ok jim. just for you, and maybe a few others, here are the operating instructions for the sundial....

    first and most important, determine which way is east.
    second, point arrow in the direction that is east.
    if the shadow is pointing away from the arrow, it's morning.
    if the shadow is pointing to the arrow, it's evening.
    if it is daytime, and there is no shadow, it's noon.
    if it is night time, and there is no shadow, it's midnight.

    so easy, even larry could use this sundial....

    That's not a Sundial. That's a Sunofagun.

    You got my laugh.

    Enjoy,

    Dan i like a joke like the rest of us. I did not get out of bed on the wrong side either on this Monday morn but i find your continued dig at Larry while said in jest its getting tiring.
    If you need a punching bag to make your jokes work use me rather.
