Just a note guys (and ladies) ...

I know it's all fun and games and it's said in jest, but can we keep the pseudo-insults to a minimum? (hence the edits - sorry) It doesn't set a good example for the folks browsing through who don't get that's not how we roll around here.

Thanks.

In Germany they're called "belly punchers". IMHO the name itself is a pretty fair warning about where not to point them when they're armed.

Of coarse all is due to a law suite, after a law suite the disclaimer is to cover their butt from then on forth.

To be fair, just last night I got a 32-ounce drink served to me at a drive through window. Fortunately I saw the loose lid before taking the drink, and was saved from being drenched in sticky soda, and the need for my car to undergo a complete interior cleaning job.

You might think that my experience can't compare to the coffee case, but it actually can. The same mistake that was made with the top on my cold drink was what caused the woman to be doused with scalding coffee. Although I'm not likely to suffer physical injury from spilled soda pop, the cost of removing it from all over the inside of my car does have a price. And although my loss would be more in the hundreds of dollars for custom cleaning, compared to ~$10,000 in medical bills, it's still a liability that the fast food company is liable for when it happens.

The point is that what you call "common sense" is a knife that cuts both ways. (No pun intended, lunatic59!) In the case of the old lady who got burned and myself who might have been drenched, it was common sense for the fast food employee to put the top on properly. Did you think if it from that perspective?

Here's another example. Is it intuitively obvious why you shouldn't stand on top of a step ladder? If they weren't meant to be used that way, how come the top step is there in the first place? Ladder makers could have constructed their ladders with a cross brace that discouraged using it as a step, but they didn't. Was it really a lack of common sense, or did ladder makers really make their products to be used right up to the top step? I'd say that because they slapped on another sticker instead of removing the steps you're not supposed to use, that ladder buyers still want to use those top steps, and ladder makers are happy to oblige. Not so cut-and-dried this time, eh?

I don't know if anyone of you have read the burned woman's claims in the lawsuit, but McDonald's served their coffee over 180*. They were told by food inspectors many times this was far too hot and they have to serve it cooler. The woman received deep tissue burns, something that should not happen from a spilled cup of coffee if it was served at the correct temp.

That is why there was a "frivolous" lawsuit.

Acetone mixed with trans fluid or brake fluid at 1/1 make an excellent penetrating oil. Also 2 oz in 10 gals of gas will make you get better milage and performance. Sold at hardware stores.

Dangerously false.

Quote:
Where the decision of adding or not adding acetone to one's fuel tank merely a question of whether the practice boosted gasoline performance, that would be one thing, but unfortunately there are other issues to consider, such as the harm that the solvent can work on vehicles. Acetone is corrosive, which means it can eat away at rubber components such as gaskets and O-rings - a particularly bad result for cars with rubber hoses in their fuel lines.

Depends on the quality of the knife. I am familiar with several automatic knives. You are talking about a front opening version. The Italian made knives are great, especially the vintage stocks. Sadly, the laws make them illegal. I think some states allow them if they are of a certain length.

Too bad, I would love to buy a fine quality switchblade. Lots of places to get them but they are illegal.

I remember a company that sold switchblade "kits." The parts were for "educational" purposes only; the parts were carefully laid out on a framed display. With warnings telling you it was illegal to assemble them.

A 2 X 4 is really 1-1/2" by 3-1/2".
unless it is rough cut then it will be the true size but will be rough and not smooth.

Or (don't know if its been mentioned already) just use baby oil for the same effects.... Again keep away from plastic and rubber.... I have used it on when cleaning the swinging arm or the wheels of my motorbike! Cuts through thick chain grease really well! :-)

The letter J does not appear anywhere on the periodic table of the elements


In 2012, December has 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays,and 5 Mondays. ( TRUE.... I checked it ! )
This apparently happens once every 823 years! ( Meaning in 823 years December will have 5 Saturdays 5 Sundays 5 Mondays again and not till then)

Did you really check this? Because either your fact checking skills stink or you checked it vs a chain letter. Try snopes. August 2010 had the same 5 as well as October 2010, January 2011, September 2011 and July 2012.

Heroin and Aspirin were actually formulated by the same person in the same week. And heroin was originally supposed to be a safer, non-addictive replacement to morphine.

The quote is for Saturday Sunday and Monday ONLY. Sure there are other 5's but if you open the calendar and look at July saturday does not have 5 days, Tuesday does which makes 3 but it's not Saturday Sunday and Monday.

There are a lot that have 5 same days in the month 3 times. You might want to check snops again because they're WRONG! Like I said open the calendar yourself July this year DOES NOT have Saturday Sunday and Monday!!! Oct 11 had Sat Sun Mon, none in 2013.

Default Burned pans / pots

Unless I missed it - it wasn't posted

If you cooked something and the stuff got burned stuck to the pot, simply add warm water to the pan / pot and throw in a tablet denture cleaner. Depending on the size use two or three

Take a ketchup packet from a fast food restaurant, bend it half, poke a few holes in it with a fine needle on the two bulged ends. Then, VERY gently set it under the toilet seat (Needle holes facing forwards) under the nub that contacts the porcelain. Oh, then wait.

Did it to my wife, it works! lol

If that's too technical, just place saran wrap over the toilet bowl making sure there's no wrinkles visible underneath the toilet seat. This is particularly handy for those pesky men whom never lift the seat to go #1.

Paybacks are a b#tch! lol

If we are speaking about 5 Saturday, Sunday & Monday in a single month it looks like August 2015 is the next, followed by October 2016 then July 2017.

If we talking about only December then it happens again in 2018.

I like chit chatting with you, every now and then I stick 1 of those in there to see who will find it, you and a few others are about the only 1's that do. And yes sometimes I do post stuff that I forget to research too. Sorry about that part.

It only bugged me so much because you said you verified it. But it gave me something to do on my lunch break today.

Here is a game like one, Take your age and multiply by 7 then multiply again by 1443 the answer will repeat your age 3 times! Works for any age but single digits will have a 0 between the numbers and not at the end of answer!

I know this works for folks born before 2k, I think for folks born after they need to add 100 and it still works. OK, here goes...

Take a tape measure, fold it over and put the end of it on your birth year a large U. Find the current year on one side, and on the back side will be your age you would turn during the year. So for me I would fold it over and line up the end with '75. I would find '12 and on the back side it would say 37 on the folded over side.

As I mentioned earlier, I think it still works for folks born after 2000 but they would need to go over 100 inches (i.e. born in 2002 would line the end of the tape up to 102 inches).

Not seeing it. If you do as you said, will have 0/75, 1/74, etc for 37 would be 33, not 12...

It does work if you fold over the tape, so that the last two digits of the current year are lined up with the 100" mark, then if you go to your birth year, on the back side will be your age... Is that what you meant?

Oops, going from memory, yeah, I goofed. I just had to go to my shed to verify. I'ts been a few years since I did that trick with the kids.

Just came across this thread and made a list of tips .. only to find all but two were already here!

The two I have left are:

To remove minor scratches from CDs, cover with Brasso (or possibly silver cleaner) leave until dry, then polish off. I've had mixed results with this - only really works for fairly minor scratches and it's not a permanent fix - did let me rip the CDs though

When frying onions and/or garlic to soften them without browning, add a teaspoon of water. As the water boils off, add another teaspoon. This lets you cook the onions more quickly as you can fry at a higher temperature without browning. This one definitely works
