I met one that was a self-professed expert in building darkrooms. Seriously, he was a fool who had nary a clue. I warted a baffle system with the dividers painted flat black. This makes it easy to move from the dark to the light and you did not need any doors.

Aggravating because I absolutely knew more than he knew. I think had I wanted an indoor jet hanger with a pool on the second floor, he would have told me he was a "jet hanger with a pool on the second floor" expert.

I am looking at revitalizing an old building. A very cool space. I worry that I will find another bum rather than someone I can work with.

When I was an auto mechanic, I cursed engineers and the day they were born. I swear they put components in an automobile specifically in a configuration to make it difficult to get at them!
Other than that, my father and grandfather were engineers. Damn good ones too!

What do you call it when an architect has a hang up on complicated multi-family buildings?

A complex complex complex.

Plus I agree about the child support and a whole lot of other things said earlier.

My random thought - read all you can about Buckminster Fuller.

I know what you mean. Some cars require great effort just to get to the spark plugs.

I once tried to get a POS Ford Taurus started. Everything was in good shape. I did all of the routine checks; I looked for fusible links (do they still use those?) bad wiring, strong battery, solid connections and the like.

The bloody car would not start.

I then found out that there is a switch assembly buried in the trunk, under the carpeting, as I recall. Something to do with protecting you if your car rolls over. That was the problem. I cut the GD switch assembly out of the circuit and connected the wiring. Car started like it should have.

The problem for me was the 80.00 (or perhaps it was more) price for a OEM replacement. To heck with that.

You can add writers that write terrible owner's manuals to the list.

My random thought . . . read all you can read about Charles and Ray Eames.

I remember going through the same thing trying to find a no-start on a Taurus! That switch cuts out the fuel pump if I remember right.

I believe you are correct. Just one more part I always thought was not required. As I recall, the switch was in a molded plastic box and after it trips, you cannot reset it. The switch was not a typical switch as I recall. The parts were built into this little black box and it was not reparable.

Wire cutters, solder and heat shrink tubing cured the problem.

We'd just bypass. If the key doesn't work (switch defective or worn) just put a toggle switch on line. Older cars did that. We had a 49 Chev. PU that you turned the key on and used the starter on the floor. We did this on an Opel Kadett, and a 1963 Chevy Wagon.

Got a new body for my Spitfire - all wiring fried. Instead of dealing with the crazy wiring system - direct wire everything except brake and turn signals. I had a row of toggle switches on the dashboard. Everything worked.

I had a small repair shop in Utah tell me my Tacoma didn't exist. They could find no specs for a 2.7 liter engine. (usual size was 2.4) The Vulcan thought I was hallucinating, so we had 2 mechanics and the Vulcan under the hood reading the info. Another mechanic came on duty and said that Toyota did build one. I have a manual on the truck, and I can read, dammit.

I believe most ford models have this set up. My 95 mustang had it along with my dads 99 E-?? Van.

I figured it was something like that.

I think I'll buy a Model T and start at essentially the beginning. Cheap ass cars, simple and quite cool. Not a black one, however.

Perhaps painted a nice Ford Tractor Blue or maybe DuPont Chrome Oxide Yellow.

My husband does some work on our car, and routinely curses automotive engineers who've made it so much harder for a DIYer to do maintenance on his car without shop facilities.

Working at a Pediatric Hospital in the inner city, and I couldn't agree more. Makes me think things that would make many people very angry, and even surprise me.

It really isn't fair to the kids, let alone the rest of society who have to pay directly and indirectly for their inability to raise their own. I'm talking money for supporting them (paying for their Doritos and Pepsi dinners), housing (many families make more money for having more children, and intentionally have more for that reason. I see it happen.), and more.
Then the cycle continues because they grow up and lead the same lifestyle they were raised to think is normal and acceptable.

Man o man I could go on and on. It seriously hurts me deeply to see this every day.

One of a plethora of things that grinds my gear are people who demands respect yet they haven't done anything to gain that respect. I had an ex-coworker who walked around thinking they knew everything, and would lash back and become vengeful if anyone corrected them or made them look stupid. Glad they're gone because now the workplace is much happier.

And the people who don't like the fact that kids need to be supported need to respect the decision not to have any.

We only had one. Not interested in more. She doesn't want kids. That's fine by me, it's her life. But all the old biddies keep harping on grandkids.
I'm not interested, she's not interested. I'm not ordering her to have kids so we can be "normal." So quit bugging me. I don't want grandkids except the kind with 4 legs.

My grandkids have - 4 legs, a tail and they go urf urf urf. In other words - Ferrets. She and her husband have nine of them.

I can relate, once we had a coworker that always yelled/argued with our customers and other employees, and when the time came for a performance evaluation they were dumbfounded when they didn't receive a raise. That employee also argued back saying she knew more more about the business than everyone else. etc.

Hey Stinky-
About your avatar - they have been around for millions of years and are probably the only organism who will survive a nuclear holocaust.

They are also making mini roach robos or using controlled roaches to hunt for earthquake, bomb, and mass mayhem victims in collapsed structures. They can get into places where a tracked or wheeled robot can't. Makes sense to me.

That elderly family member that needs medical care and who's nieces and nephews have decided that "Trivia Night" at the bar is more important than her being rushed to the hospital so it falls on my wife to rush an hour away to be with her.

Nevermind that she is the one that takes her to all of her doctors appointments.

Nothing manmade flies. It's a crude form of levitation. C-130s come to mind.

Ziplip Un Huh....

That one person at work that always has something to add in a conversation when the higher ups in your company are present just to make sure they are heard. Speak if what you have to say adds "value" to the given topic, but just saying meaningless stuff to be heard does more harm than good for your reputation.

Does yours pontificate, too? The Vulcan does.

Example:

I've been after him since he got a computer. I read security columns and was after him about safety. In one ear and out the other. Then he read an article, and he's the security expert. He preached at all of us for days. For an engineer, he's dense.

Getting towed because the city put up no parking signs less than 24hrs ago so they could sweep the leaves from the street, which had re-accumlated by the time I got back from the impound. Thanks. I was inside for almost a whole day taking care of my newborn, and didn't see the signs. This is what I get. Thanks.

Default Web comment boards and forums

Grinding my gears:

Web forums have come into the lands of hate instead of honest and compelling discusions.

If I read an article on Yahoo or wherever then I goto the comments 90% are all about hating differing points of view.

Liberals hate on Conservatives,
Conservatives hate on Liberals,
Sports fans hate on other teams/fans,
Android/Apple/Microsoft ... etc,
Hollywood fans hate on certain movies/stars/TV shows.

Comment boards and forums should be a great way to have discussions with people I would never meet IRL, but instead of insight I find extreme negativity.

(Off Topic) I agree with as I usually find the same thing when I explore. Why can't they simply discuss something without all this drama is beyond me.
We discuss mature debates here and not childish ones.
(On Topic) Lag in video games. I know I'm talking about games again, but I hate it when it starts lagging and the other guy beats me or it goes into host migration in some and takes forever just to jump to a new host. Then when it does it lags again.

Headaches. Not sure why the body doesn't release some sort of chemical to combat that right away. Hell, I'm not even sure why they exist in the first place...?
