  1. Counterintuitive math.

    Miscellaneous Forum
    If you want to make money in the stock market become a broker. Buy commissions and sell commissions, a money pot at both ends of the street.
  2. kitchen cabinet restoration

    Miscellaneous Forum
    I recently restored a liquor cabinet for a friend. He had been been over protecting the rosewood veneer by regularly wiping it down with linseed oil. He had been told that linseed oil was the best for protecting rosewood.That was erroneous as the rosewood was already protected by an acrylic...
  3. Got sucked in again

    Miscellaneous Forum
    Mrs Nobbie had the Chev into the dealer for an oil change and the notes at the bottom of the invoice recommended a dozen tests and fluid checks.The total was $800.00. They forgot to put in a price for ice skates for the devil because hell would freeze over before I went for that scam.

  6. Another example of the dumbing down

    Miscellaneous Forum
    A month a go I needed a 6-32 brass screw. A trip to Home Depot would be 20 minutes, another 20 to get out of the store and 20 home. I made my own in a half hour. Sometimes it pays to screw yourself.
  7. Old Age - and Dementia

    I just figured out why men get Alzheimer's. Our wives have been telling us to get lost for so long that we just went for it.

    Miscellaneous Forum
    I have and in Chinese. On my I phone if I don't recognize the number I can text a custom message. Mine is "Identify yourself and I'll call you back"
  9. Old Age - and Dementia

    Miscellaneous Forum
    If you have to deal with someone who has PTSD it helps to know how it affects the brain. A good book to start with is "The Body Keeps the Score" by Van der Kalk. You don't need a degree in medicine to understand it but be prepared for some ugly reading. He points out some nasty things people...
  10. Why not?

    Miscellaneous Forum
    Make a situation legal and one gets hit with morality taxes. In Canada your principle residence is not subject to capital gains but you are only allowed one property. If a widower and a widow marry one property becomes subject to capital gains.
  11. Why not?

    Miscellaneous Forum
    For him wouldn't that be like having two identical bikes?
  12. United States not so united

    Miscellaneous Forum
    Different locations require different laws for good reasons. In Rhode Island vermin control might mean mouse traps. Mouse traps aren't going to help a Texas farmer with a feral hog problem.
  13. Consistency - Students Learning to Weld

    Miscellaneous Forum
    The kindest thing one could say about my welds is that variety is the spice of life. Never stand under anything I have welded.
  14. Lost my van mobil home and broke my dog.

    Miscellaneous Forum
    The title says dog and I assume since the name is Bear it's a big one. We get attached to our pets and it's often hard to decide what's right.
  15. asbestos exposure

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    Mine were amalgam, a mix of silver and mercury. Unless you have a specific problem they don't drill them out. I'm not suggesting we go back to the good old days but we don't need to freak out every time we hear the word asbestos. There's nothing wrong with asbestos siding unless you're cutting...
  16. Lost my van mobil home and broke my dog.

    Miscellaneous Forum
    I don't know how these things are handled now. When the site was under Irish rule I thought there was a committee that steered the problem in the appropriate direction. That's a hefty vet bill. More details would help.
  17. Eyeglasses

    Miscellaneous Forum
    My daughter worked for an optometrist for a while but quit because she wasn't into con games. They would upsell a set of glasses for a kid to plastic lenses because kids can be hard on glasses. Then they would upsell an adult to glass lenses because they are more scratch resistant.
  18. asbestos exposure

    General Motorcycle Discussion Forum
    I'm very pro safety but the occasional bit of asbestos isn't likely to harm you. If you are a worry wart you should also be testing for radon gas and a couple of dozen other hazardous substances as well as nuclear radiation. If you're that worried you should be a vegan. I was working at a...
  19. The Can't wait to be in front types

    Miscellaneous Forum
    Unless you're the lead horse the view never changes. Truckers leave front room so as not to lose all momentum, not so you can force them to test their brakes.
  20. Eyeglasses

    Miscellaneous Forum
    A friend dropped in and was showing me his new glasses. I put them on a fine scale and asked him what they cost. It calculated out to 90% of the price of gold.
