used my brother-in-law's telescope last night and the night before.
last night the sky was so dark i couldn't see anything.
thought maybe i was going night-blind.
then i pointed it to a strong light source (radio tower beacon) some miles away.
i wondered for a bit. it had worked ok on previous occasions.
i fiddled with it and then i checked the front lens.
it had a lens cap on it.
just.......shoot me now.
if making mistakes is what makes us human, then i'm the most human
sort-of bi-pedal one you ever saw.
story from a friend:
Lol. My ex husband mike and his friend just about died one day pulling the start cable on a snowmobile one day. They checked everything and it still wouldn't start. So pull, pull, pull. I thought they were going to puke. I walked by, reached down, turned off kill switch , and just kept on walking. I'm sure they wanted to kill me.
