I learned (after reading all the way through it) that this thread is far more informative than I expected.

I also learned that copper is now being sold in bars and rounds as bullion for monetary purposes.  I haven't yet figured out whether this seems sensible.

If I've been able to help out, donations are always welcome.

Early Ford V10 Triton engines are prone to blow spark plugs stripping the head. Luckily I had 9 other cylinders to get me home from being 120 miles away. One solution I read on some forum was to JB weld a value into the cylinder, using it as an air compressor.

Looks like me gettin' a new twuck. To bad all me bitcoins is a tied up in InstaWallet, but at least they is a safe.  Roll Eyes

SHIT FIRE! I just got me a better idea. Why the fuck I no think of it earlier? I know a guy that could fix this permanently without ever having another issue--Ed Trice.

Wait wait wait...  There are kits especially for that.  Both use an oversize tap which doesn't require you to drill out the stripped threads, fits on the end of a 3/8 extension & pretty much uses the remnants of the old threads to start, so it's hard to d8ck up.  One kind uses locktite & what i think is called a helicoil insert (it is what it sounds like -- a spring-like doohickey with a special tool to thread it in).  The other uses locktite & a threaded sleeve with a shoulder.

 TL;DR I herd U laik threads, so i put threads in UR threads.

. Not just today but over the past weeks I've been learning C++/SDL and I learned that even tutorials have blatant bugs or will be badly laid out so I actually have to read through the errors myself or ask someone for help fixing them, remember that if you ever decide to learn coding, if the compiler doesn't work it may not be your fault but the tutorial not being checked over properly before it's released or the code would only work with an older version of your compiler.

. When it comes to learning coding you spend less time learning the code and more time downloading the correct extensions to make it work, then you find that you have to learn bits of code for those extensions, depending on what you're doing you don't seem to use the standard programming language because it isn't always flexible enough to do what you want the coding itself is actually pretty easy once you learn the commands

. I learned how to make a flush setting in Jewellery Cheesy

What kind of a language is "Jewellery"? You clearly aren't taking this coding thing seriously.

I've learnt that even if you start a brand new Facebook account, from the ads on the right hand side of my new account, I see that they know I graduated in 1978 and even suggest my sister as a friend as well as an uncle I haven't spoken to in a couple decades. Somebody tell me how the hell is that even possible.
The history of your IP address, the cookie files, flash "super-cookies", cookie-less profiling of your machine (e.g. by user agent, list of browser add-ons, version of flash, version of java, system fonts, screen resolution,...) - the list of possible ways any website can track a user is very long and depressing.

I'm depressed! Can I sue them for braking some kind of privacy clause?


somehow I don't think they'll be putting on the brakes any time soon. That would break their paradigm.

Yes! If he stalks him, he'll get a general idea of who his next girlfriend will be.

I'm not sure it works quite that way.

Why not? It worked so well last time.

He knows his new girlfriend's ex-boyfriend. Somewhere down the line he may be in the market to find a new girlfriend. What better place to start then stalking some guy having the same tastes as his, seeing who he dates.

As an added bonus, the first date won't be as awkward, for he'll know what subjects to stay away from, unless he opts for the what-they-have-in-common route, one of which would be "that" guy.

LOL Phinnaeus Gage stalking an ex-boyfriend is a poor idea Tongue But on the ex-front I've found that when it comes to girls if you look at their past boyfriends or how many of them are and what timeframe they usually dump them in, then you can usually avoid some pretty nasty encounters. So if a girl has had numerous relationships in the past few months, chances are there's going to be a reason for that, granted, sometimes it can be just shitty luck but other times it could be because she's an absolute psycho, even more so if she hasn't even had sex with any of them.

I kept crossing paths with this one guy that way. Never met him in person, but heard stories from my girls. Fine. So this one chick once started talking about an interesting guy she met, and after a few sentences I just knew it was him. I told her "right, and his name was {his name}" - and she just blinked and stared at me in shock.  I then took advantage of the presumed psychic powers I had, and helped her relax and reach her first orgasm.

But we digress from the topic here.

What I learned today is that microwave ovens suck in fine droplets of hot oil, and disperse them through the vents onto the surrounding surfaces of your kitchen.

Very interesting - how does this help them cook, though? Seems like an odd design choice.

Today I learned that my gf doesn't just think I'm weird but thinks I might be schizophrenic. I explained that this was unlikely, especially since she doesn't really know what that diagnosis entails.

The ensuing argument did not, as you might imagine, go well.

I learned that I loved this song even more than I knew: http://youtu.be/0zGGzsiA1dA

This reminded me of the time I had Thom Schuyler http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52Fv9-zkt2I as a special guest in Nashville, and he sang the long version of 16th Avenue. I never was able to find a copy of it until I was in some record shop in Bombay, India in 1991, and there it was.

And yes, I've even had Lacy J Dalton as a special guest back in the day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7Lcx7uzSo8

Just like coders may have hobnobbed with named coders, I've rubbed shoulders, literally, with most the famous country song writers back in the mid to late 80's in Nashville.

I'll always have a special place in my heart for Nashville.

EDIT: Just found the long version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xy_p5iAQ17Y
