Hence the warning on that apple-flavored nipple moisturizer. Some people never learn.

And the post office is commemorating the event with a special sheet of stamps, with three designs to replicate the actual event. USPS.com

Jealous of planting a letterbox, or of being in Ogden so that I can go see the Union Pacific Big Boy 4141? I got to do both, by the way.

I actually replaced "Hold the Torch High", planted my Commemorative letterbox, and planted a Spike stamp. The Spike is a geocache, so the geocachers only get a simple stamp (that I had time to carve today), but the letterboxers get both.

your personal, with you always, at least until now, fleshy nipples

Thems the ones.

And yes, LBCon was a bit of a precursor to this.

I've been in technical training in London this week for my new company, Nexmo.

On our final day of training we had to give a presentation on blah blah blah (insert boring industry-specific technical mumbo-jumbo here). So naturally, I found it morally imperative to spice it up just a tad. We had been given, earlier in the week, T Shirts with the company name across the chest. I just HAPPENED to have some flash paper with me... the stuff magicians use to make big bright flames that burn cool(ish) and leave no trace. Ever since LBCon I realized this was a necessity to carry with me on all trips, because you JUST NEVER KNOW when you will need it.

So, I taped a piece of flash paper over the company logo on the TShirt, and made a little 9 volt battery operated igniter with s switch. I then wore a buttoned shirt over this.

At the end of the boring part, it was time to make a grand finale. I yelled out "And who are we? WE ARE NEXMO!!". I ripped open the button shirt (spewing buttons across those in the front row), revealing the paper covering the Nexmo logo. I hit the button, and it worked SPECTACULARLY! HUGE flash, screams and laughter as the name was revealed. Perfect!!!

Except...

Remember how I said I TAPED it to the shirt? The two small, seemingly insignificant bits of tape were right over my nipples. And apparently their combustion temperature were significantly lower than expected. So while I stood there basking in the glow of adulation, I was also basking in the glow of my flaming nipples.

Yes, it was caught on video. No, I don't know if the company will acknowledged its existence.

You won't let an insignificant detail such as that foil your desire to share with those of us who have squealed in horror, joy and astonishment at shenanigans previously perpetrated by you.

There are no words that can do justice to that scene!!! I wonder if Nexmo had any idea of the extent of your shenanigan-abilities and willingness to use them?

Well, at least you speak (most of) the language.

So naturally, I found it morally imperative to spice it up just a tad.

Isn't that what got you a talking-to from time-to-time at your previous company?

I ripped open the button shirt (spewing buttons across those in the front row)

You know, we have velcro to avoid that problem.

And apparently their combustion temperature were significantly lower than expected. So while I stood there basking in the glow of adulation, I was also basking in the glow of my flaming nipples.

This is why we do dry-runs.

Yes, it was caught on video. No, I don't know if the company will acknowledged its existence.

And remember, if any of your team are caught or killed your company will deny any knowledge of this incident.

Fleshy *and* flaming. It boggles the mind.

Well. They have't posted it on their web site yet. Yet.

I didn't know that you guys are in town. Park at the Junction parking structure (about 23rd and Grant, then either walk or take the special shuttle bus for this event. When I planted the box I parked there, walked to the Union Station, planted the boxes and took the shuttle bus back.

Well, that was the plan. However, being that it happened in England, their definition of "pasties" was not the same. Hilarity ensued.

I never imagined that AQ would be so abused when I first created it. *shaking head*
