We never have a problem at our house finding a stud to a hang a heavy picture:
1) I'm usually standing there with the damned hammer in my hand

2) uh. No, that one answer was quite enough.

Louise is right. Guess I'll have to find a stud on my own. Laughing

Why?

If three trains come to the same platform, say the A, C and E, why is there a 100 per cent chance that no matter which one of them you are waiting for, one of the other two will arrive first.


I have the data. I've been train watching.

but is red, and of a chunkier design.

With such a device, an cutter and plenty of PVA glue I turned an large cardboard appliance box (white goods, think it was a dryer) into a cubby house for the kids - complete with automatically shutting door.


Is it possible to have stapler envy? If so, do you have to get therapy from Bob Vila?

Stapler therapy? Sounds kinky to me...

And Joe, I don't know the answer, but I've noticed related phenomena at drive-thru banks, box office lines and toll booths. No matter which line I choose, the others invariably advance before mine. Hmmm...why is that?

It is the result of my General theory of Participatory Travel Obfuscation
to wit: Any distance traveled greater than ten feet in the presence of another human will be blocked, delayed or otherwise impeded by that other person or their agents. This truth is mutually reciprocal.

It's especially annoying when you are in two lines of traffic. I usually pick another vehicle to mark my progress ie "the green van". If my (our) line gets ahead of the "Green Van" Evil or Very Mad then um we win :: .
But we never do.
The Green Van line of evil (cursed be all of them and their progeny) always moves on without us and it's participants get the best parking spaces, the best spots on the beach sand and the last of the items on sale. They get to hang out with hipper people, have more time with their kids, nab that promotion, own better trained dogs, have shadier naps on hammocks and the first sip of the best batch of margaritas at the party.

L has pointed out to me that my General theory of Participatory Travel Obfuscation cannot be true because the members of other line don't seem to affected or contained within it, but I remind her that she is mad,
quite mad and that it doesn't occur to her that those Green Van people might in fact be illusions or reflections from some universe. That over there, in that other universe, I am in the Green Van with my well-trained dogs and happy kids on our way home from a fabulous day at the beach and thence to a posh party where I, dressed in my impeccably tailored -bought on sale- shorts, shall drift from the conversation whilst lounging on the hammock next to the table whereon my employer, hip host and hostess Holly and Elliot, are making blue margaritas by the gallon stopping only to whisper in my ear that the corner office is mine.

Yes, how does that work Joe? The other day I got on the freeway behind this person, who was going slow. I immediately passed them, moved over the far left fast lane, and tried to pass as many cars as possible. About five miles later, I notice this person, in front of me, inexplicably, now exiting the freeway.

Grrrrrrrrr!

That guy passed me just last Sunday......I used to think that there was a special underground set of lanes for such people, now I know they merely vaporize and re-appear at will.

You should come up here, cj. Drivers are passive and sheeplike (they call it "safe" -- whatever), and such victories are easily had.

Been there many times. Friends in Gig Harbor and relatives in Woodinville. You're right about that, even in an unfamiliar rental car I was king of the road.

Yep. Sometimes I feel like an evil speed-demon here at a very restrained 70 mph. If I drove like I used to here they'd probably lock me up. And nobody seems to know what the left lane is for...

You get away from Puget Sound, though, and people speed up.
