  • RAM: The hydraulic thingy that makes the woodsplitter work.
  • Hard Drive: Gettin' home in mud season

  • Windows: What to shut when it's 30 below
  • Screen: What you need for black fly season

...from the University of Wyoming website

BTW: I graduated with a BSEE from the University of Vermont, and I don't remember any of
         this being a problem. I therefore suspect it might not be true! Oh, and Vermonters
         refer to the rest of y'all as "Flatlanders," because they think they've got big hills --
         they've obviously never been to the Rocky Mountains.
