View Full Version : Onanism is overated
11-01-2006, 02:02 PM
Hey permie people – slough off that Christmas///New Year inertia and get back here, please!
There are one or two of us who have valiantly manned the board while the rest of the country went shopping and eating, but I think we're getting a bit tired of just amusing ourselves, so we need a few companions to make this place swing again. (Yeah baby)
Corny? Widgenut? Frosty? Floot? And where the hell have you disappeared to, Douglas E Barnes?

That will certainly get their attention!

Yes, I can sometimes hear the echo

I thought the title of this post was "orgasms are overated" when I first looked, and thought I'd weigh in to disagree...

So, Onanism is what those of us who posted over the Christmas period were doing?
I can't understand what objection the nuns would have to that :D

That's it for a response? Oh come on!
I felt sure a bit of (even lame) sexual innuendo would spark a bit more keyboard action!

Just reconnected my headplug ala Matrix style, so I'm wired back in for another year of permie chat. Spent most of the break painting my new place getting ready to move in. (eco-paint of course)

New place has room enough to plant those trees you had sitting in the back yard?

Also, tell us more about the eco friendly paint?

Did you use a milk-based paint?

For our onanism or Peter's house?

Have you seen this? It is a library of out-of-print books. The book I am referring you to is (Roberts, Rex). Your Engineered House.

He talks about paint in one of the chapters. Milk paint and a colourant in particular.

I used the new Wattyl i.d. paint which has the green tick from The Australian Environmental Labelling Association http://www.aela.org.au
The description is here http://www.aela.org.au/pdatabase/produc ... Wattyl.htm (http://www.aela.org.au/pdatabase/products/wattyl/Wattyl.htm)
Although I could have gone for something more alternative, it was an experiment to see how this product would perform in a school situation, which I mostly design for. It has eliminated most of the VOC content while maintaining a 7 year timeframe between recoats and good washability, which is where the alternatives fall down. (Schools have very little money for maintenance). I could have used Berger Breatheasy, but it requires recoating every 2-3 years.
The i.d. paint has virtually no smell and good handling characteristics, but is expensive.
I also looked at Biopaint, available from Going Solar http://www.goingsolar.com.au/cat_biopaints.htm
