> Are you from Indiana? > Evansville? No. I live in Dallas. What gave you the idea that I might be from Indiana--Evansville, in particular? I checked to see if my company might have a plant there--but we don't. Now I'm all curious. Is there some rogue Lindsay from Evansville, Scourge of the God-fearing and Bane of the West? Is he/she defiling my name? By the way, those clear plastic, 50's-styled Martian ray-gun pistols with the friction/inertia motor and piece of flint--you know the one that sparks like crazy when you pull the trigger and rev it up--can also come through on particular pick-ups. It depends on what the flywheel inside is made of. If it ferrous, then it acts like a tone wheel from a B3. Plus, you get the super cool effect of spraying sparks all over stage.
