    This is really my grandmother's advice. When I was too young to really understand she looked at me and said: "You get a lot more than a wife when you get married.".

    The first time I met my wife's parents her mom was mowing the lawn in a bikini while her dad was in a chair under a tree in lederhosen with the newspaper, a beer and cigar. Go for it if you happen to stumble upon the same or something like that.

    Our HS driver ed guy said "Aim high in steering."
    Sounded stupid to a 17 year old, but 45 years later, I still tell myself that phrase often.

    My uncle once told me the corollary to that... "if it's got t*ts or tires there's gonna be trouble"

    When people tell you who they are, believe them. But when people try to tell you who you are, don't believe them.

    I can't remember who told me this, or even if I believed them, or not.

    I wouldn't diss his idea too quickly. You know it just occurred to me that there are 'nano-tech hydrophobic polymer' alternatives to Getbent's brilliant way of thinking!

    This could be the beginning of a new line of toilet products that could make the 'toilet brush' a thing of the past...

    I'll be a gentleman GB and only take 10% shares of the patent, as a co-author. ;)

    Never - ever - be rude to the wait-staff... no matter what.

    Why risk having your food taste like spit?

    Good point. When I was a teen working at a Pizza Hut the in crowd cheerleaders and a few football team people came in. I didn’t think that much about their teasing me for cleaning the bathrooms. Some older employees who liked me and caught it did. When I was in back washing dishes the waitress and assist manager came back and told me they hoped the cheerleaders will enjoy their floor sweep pizza.

    That one alerted teenage me to the possibilities when you eat out, and at another level to care less about peer pressure. I don’t think I could have done that personally but it was an eye opener in those teenage years.

    I always figured righty righty lefty loosely was for mdive yr olds and idiot college engineers, no offense intended but I had a college educated so called engineer stand in front of me repeating that while trying to tighten a nut. Guys should just know this, or at least not verbalize it after the age of twelve !
    And yeah there are exceptions like a left hand threaded bolt, so if you keep it in your head you won’t look dumb !

    Regarding can openers...

    If you have to do a double-pass to get the can open - THROW the opener away.

    While I was in our hospital intensive care ward (unrelated reason why I was there), everybody there was on 24 hour watch - one of the most serious patient in our lot - was this guy who unknowingly swallowed a thin metal shard that came from a tin can he had opened with a bad can opener. The shard naturally got lodged in his stomach, and the natural digestive movement it makes just caused the shard to slash his internals to shreds. Apparently not a simple operation for doctors to open his gut and take the metal bit out.

    Can openers are only a few dollars... get rid of that old piece of junk you've been holding on to and get a proper one... get a good one!


    Ever since, I watch carefully when I open canned food. If my opener begins to cut funny in any way, even if it still looks new - it flies into our rubbish bin in a blink of an eye!

    well, okay, but IF you ever do, remember, you don't pay them for sex, you pay them to leave.

    A few guitar playing tips from my late father:

    "The louder it is, the less it matters."
    "Don't be musically illiterate."
    "When playing lead over changes, try not to s**t on the next chord."

    Sage advice.

    If you see someone crying, ask if it’s because of his or her haircut.
