    SCORING

    Vicegrip
    Vicegrip's new ordinance received three likes. Hey ConsularRider and Andy - this means yousse guys can now play the game. 5 points.
    Vicegrip being a total sneak did not post a picture of the new Calvinball - so dilly dilly for that.
    Vicegrip captured all five points for the find. - 5 points.
    However - Vicegrip placed the Calvinball outside of the beltway before his new ordinance was codified. Vicegrip must learn to OBEY Tim the Enchanter. Therefore Vicegrip gets bupkus. Dilly Dilly. Nada. NOTHING. DO YOU HEAR ME!



    Hey.... did you know that Vicegrip once took this really cool Raleigh bike frame - and cut it down and welded it into a walking cane for a member of the forum who crashed and busted his butt? I mean this thing was SOOOOO COOOL! For this - Vicegrip is awarded 20 points.

    Reji
    Reji's new ordinance got three likes and is now the law of the land. 5 points. Once again Reji did not tell Tim what to do about (non)compliance, sooooooooo......
    Reji also decided not to divulge the appearance of her new Calvinball - I but assume it was not the same Calvinball as Vicegrip's. Maybe it was. Who knows. Dilly Dilly.
    Reji gets all the find points. 5 points.
    According to Josh's photo, the swag Reji hid with her Calvinball was a flight of beer from Caboose. Most excellent. 5 extra points.
    Reji is awarded 15 points.

    I am Tim. I am capricious.



    I bet none of you know what 'Tim' this is.

    What that Tim isn't - he's not about 'restoring Internet freedom.' Uh oh, now that I've uttered the terrible words the other Tim is likely to zero out my hard-earned points!

    I accept your scoring Oh furry one. Also agree that I should have taken some pictures of the Calvin ball before I deployed it and a better one of it in place. It is a bell made from 2/3 of a retired high pressure steel scuba tank. The steel it is made from is a highly refined alloy that is cold drawn using incredibly powerful machines into the tank shape. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0L9BO02cZs
    This makes for a good pressure tank and when cut and finished to the right length a clear ringing bell with a long sustain. (once you figure out how to cut and drill it without destroying normal metal working tools. it will kill regular high speed bits and saw blades ) The metal bar has a soft plastic handle. Hit the bell rim with the steel handle and you get a sharp ring and long sustain. Hit the side of the bell with the soft end and you get little initial ring but a long soft sustain. The metal has a thin layer of zinc on it. If you take a belt sander and scuff it up removing most of the zinc it will oxidize where the steel is exposed and take on a bark like patina after some time spent hanging around outside.
    To better esplan' the haiku clues. The CalvinBell was chained around a tree with a big honking chain and padlock. The padlock also retained a metal plug in the open end of the bell to keep the clapper (and to add even more weight :twisted: ) Yes, I deployed it from home via bike. The key was in a rag wrapped in vines and stuffed between the signs in the gap the post makes.

    Let it be understood that the bike frame had been retired by others before I cut it up! I don't want anyone to think I am a butcher of cool old bikes.... The good part about that crutch made from a retired bike is that it too is now Retired.

    Long live Calvinball!

    Clue:
    A trail like the moon
    In a state of bad drivers
    On mile marker six

    Proposed ordinance:
    If Calvinball is hidden within 5 miles of a brewery (as the crow flies), then the hider shall receive 3 bonus points.

    Didn't replace the Calvinball so there's no separate post for likes.

    It's funny (and sad) how everyone will automatically know what state is being alluded to in this clue. Good you were on the moon like trail and not the roads in that state.
