Aaron Skinner's coffee cup mystery
Posted by iraqiwildman on Thursday, January 24, 2013 8:55 AM

I have noticed on the last few kit review videos that Aaron has a different coffee mug on the table by him. They might even show up in the "how to" videos (along with that Tamiya SU-100 on the shelf).

 

Is this some kind of inside joke, secret message or evil plan to take over the world???

 

Inquiring minds want to know.

Time will tell. Just keep watching the videos and everything will be just fine.

I was told the old one was over shaded and it was not muddy enough.

Yea, your TPS reports have been kind of bad lately. I'm going to need you come in this weekend, OK?

Whatever you co-workers do at FSM, be careful not to drink from "The Cup of Management" by mistake!

That sounds like something out of "Flight Of The Intruder".... but this is a kid friendly site (but I would have loved it as a grade school boy... that sort of humor we menfolk love)

I think I got the quote right. Been a while.

My coffee cups are rarely described as being too clean. The old coffee improves the taste of the new.

Of course you are.  The proper method is to empty it slowly throughout the day and then refill it in the morning.

Yes, but the coffee has accreted into a substance harder than diamonds with the pliability of titanium. It has fused molecularly with the ceramic and has reduced the amount of coffee that the cup can hold. I believe it's down to a mere tablespoon now. All it needs is a burst of Gamma radiation and we'll have a new life form on our hands.

I can fix you right up with that gamma. What kind do you want? Submarine or aircraft carrier?
