I need to find a psychic who can tell me where my micro drill bits are. They were on my workbench just a couple of days ago and now that I really need them I can't find them. My wife doesn't know where they are and my 5-year old says she has no idea what I am asking about. I need my drill bits!!! Without them my SPLASH dio is going to suffer.

I know once I found out what that little lever on the toilet did, I was making more stuff disappear than David Copperfield.

Hey...I have found them!!! :-) :-) :-) :-) Don't ask me how but the box ended up behind an HTML book on the bottom shelf of a book case that sits next to my workbench. Whew! I can now continue with my diorama campaign.

The interface of plastics and oxygen coupled with paint pigments and acetone/cyanoacrilic causes a rift in the time-space continuum which results in parts flying off into anothr dimension to show up hours, days, even months later.
For your consideration, a hobbyist at his workbench in a secluded corner of the house, a bright light illuminates the work surface, he turns to the instruction sheet which directs him to ...The Twilight Zone. DooDooDooDoo, DooDooDooDoo, DooDooDooDoo, DaDem

Yup, it's just like when two socks go into a dryer but only one comes out. Some things just cannot be explained.

Did any of you guys see the Twilight Zone episode where this couple gets "left behind" by time? What happens is it's the premise that time is like a stream that we are in and this couple woke up to realize that time had continued on without them. These little guys came in and start taking everything apart. I mean everything, streetlights, street, walls, etc... What they said was one crew built everything before time got there and another crew tore it down after time left. They said when you misplace things, like your keys, and go look for it and then find it where you thought you left them, that was when the crew missed a little detail and forgot to put something in place. I always liked that episode cause I am always losing things.

I don't remember that one. Time warps were a favorite of Mr. Serlings. The two that jump out were the Stuart Tnak at the Battle of the Greasy Grass I've mentioned before and the airplane lost in a warp where the end shot is the a/c flying over dinos trying to find its way home. Ah, fro TV like that again!

Those are classics. I've never seen the Stuart tank one though, but I have heard about it for many years but never catch it.

I like the one where the lady is attacked by tiny aliens who have landed on her roof. She finally whacks their ship with an axe before they send out a distress call.

Wasn't there a story by Stephen King about it, the Langelies or something, about a plane got lost in time...very good reading....

As for the drill bits...spooky...

I like this, another episode of paranormal

The Langoliers. Excellent short story in the collection Four Past Midnight. They made it into a TV movie which followed the story fairly well, but left me dissapointed. Oh, BTW, I'm a HUUUUUUGE Stephen King fan.

I had a strange experience when my copy of the 2nd Harry Potter book vanished. Finally found it after I bought another copy..... Weird, sad or what? Jim
