    Iterate + continuous improvement. (Then don't throw it all away with planned obsolescence or undermining your brand by cutting corners in manufacturing -- the "Age of Cheap.")

    Does the mouse poop just float away out of the cage? And if they have flatulence, does it shoot them across the cage, a la the Rocketeer? These are serious scientific questions that must be answered!

    Oh yes, the medical card: DOT physical (some chiropractors offer it, as do emergency medical places). Then, schedule a "pee in a cup" drug test at a certified testing facility/office.

    Two places we go charge ($40 and $10/load of chips), another we don't go to charges by weight, and 30 cubic yards of chips tips the scales a bit heavy. The rest of the connections we have made are free dump spots, mostly farmers wanting them for agrarian use, community gardens, a Girl Scout camp for trails, etc.

    You would think that they could work out an electric ignition for this, the "i' would double for injection and ignition. No more pull start, just an on/off button.

    That's always tempting, especially if you miss them closing by 10 minutes. I've seen evidence of people doing that, dumping into a creek outside the chip dump. I'm more tempted by the sight of other chip piles dumped in parking lots, driveways, at schools & community garden projects. Simply giving them more of a good thing... ;) But no need really, as farmers are taking them off our lot as quick as we can dump them. And I have at least 5 places that want all the chips I can bring. One place that will take Siberian elm logs, and another place that wants any type of log or stump for fill.

    I guess the most interesting detail is in the "i" -- how does injection compare to a carb? Starting, idling, running... does it subjectively "feel" smoother than a traditional saw with carb?

    No fault there -- that's how we roll. If it's not close, then it means we're not good. And it's not happening perfectly according to plan. Scares the dickens out of a few fainthearted customers, though. Stand back, ma'am -- I'm a professional! 8)

    Last week was pretty hazy from all the field fires burning south of town out in the county. Burn ban or no, a farmer's gotta do what a farmer's gotta do.

    Even the name sounded evil -- Schlitterbahn is the water park and Verruckt was the name of the slide -- which means "insane" in German. https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/27/us/schlitterbahn-waterpark-death-arrests/index.html

    Terrifying water slide (tallest in the US) here in KS just got decommissioned/dismantled after a state congressman's son was decapitated on it 2 years ago. In it, you ride rafts with a partner and there were safety nets above the first hump/jump to keep people from getting tossed out of the slide. Raft went airborne, caught the child in the netting at full speed. Lawsuits and criminal charges have been ongoing for the last couple of years.
