    I thought I'd see a Mecha post this morning but I guess he's still asleep
    Seems that a truck loaded with eels flipped over and slimy eels shut down the highway in OR ! A perfect opportunity for Mecha to demonstrate a unique eel vs Ti sword test !!

    That's a real nice-lookin' saber. The scabbard cover is eelskin?

    Those slimy hagfish aren't technically eels. Eels are so much more classy. :D

    This all brings to mind an eel situation when I was just a kid .Some things that happen you remember well. On the river here they catch eels commercially. I was watching as they took a nights catch and put it into a large crate with a tractor to pull it up to the road. I just watched but didn't say anything , after all I was just a kid. The crate had no wheels , no skids , it was just a crate. The tractor pulled the crate which soon broke apart and hundreds of eels wiggled to safety back to the river !!!
