    MarkC -

    <font color=blue>it's so big that I have a hard time seeing over it when I tip it up to take a sip!</font color=blue>

    I never really noticed before, but I just tried it and you're right!

    When you get the Chalkley cup back on the drawing board maybe you should be looking into the optical characteristics of the top and bottom plastics. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/cool.gif[/img]

    Mark, I had figured you couldn't see around "The Cup" when drinking...have my doubts about seeing around it when it's just sittin' on the fender. Was wondering if you're having problems with things stickin' to "The Cup"? I mean maybe even debris flying up from the job sight, or tree branches, or small pets and children...after all something that BIG has to have its own gravitational field! And that God fearing magnet must only add to the cup's pull!

    Harv - I had considered approaching Aladdin with the intent of opening a dialog on the possibility of designing clear plastics and foam, but then I realized that I would also have to dilute the mixture I was drinking until it, too, was clear, which would compromise its effectiveness for its intended purpose. However, when the length of time it often takes to return to base to refill a smaller cup is factored in, it seems that by far the most efficient thing is simply to stop, as necessary.

    I really think the whole safety issue which has reared its ugly head in connection with the "Chalkley Cup" (take note that I'm bowing to the masses here - this is the first time that I have referred to it thusly) is some sort of left-wing conspiracy and it disappoints me that such partisan efforts to discredit what has made tractoring a "kinder and gentler" activity should now be intruding into our little virtual village.

    WOW!!! Does this have political [img]/w3tcompact/icons/shocked.gif[/img] overtones? Is it that Mark Chalkley ((of Chalkley Cup fame)) has thrown his cup into the political arena?[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img] [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]
