So, you're saying that instead of the $25 application fee being borne by the person who will benefit from the shed, that cost should instead be distributed among all the rest of us? You have absolutely no right to expect ME to pay for the cost of permitting YOUR shed.

Socialist bastard.

No, no, no! Not among all the rest of you. Just the poor, preferably.

Bathroom sink was draining very slowly, so I got out the drain snake. Pushed it down the drain (sink was nearly full), and it made a gurgle and the water rushed down. That was easy, I thought. Then I noticed the water gushing out of the bottom of the vanity.

The damn snake busted right through the trap. So, drain is still clogged, but now I need to go get parts. FML

No really need a few years of real world work experience of being bossed around by shitty managers with MBA's, so that way when you get to the MBA program you can become a shitty manager.

After 4 years my cheap ebay radiator has finally sprung a leak. I picked it up during the group buy we had on them back in 2008. It is a sad sad day. I guess now it is time to order the TSE radiator.

On the plus side, I will probably order another one to swap in until the TSE one gets here. Then move that one to my DD which really should have its radiator replaced.

So this evening as I was walking out to the mailbox, I found a dog. Fuzzy little white toy poodle. According to the tag, his name is Mr. Gigglesworth, and he's owned by the Miller family. They now have their dog back, and I got a beer out of the deal.

I was on my way to the bank 30 minutes ago, when I noticed several cars parked in the road at a corner where there is a deep ditch. At this corner was an non maintained dirt parking lot. A woman driving a Civic had high centered her car on the rim of the ditch. I surveyed the parked vehicles and noticed that I, driving a suburban, had the largest and only vehicle with a trailer hitch.

2 men, their wives, and a few children were on the scene. They were trying to get the car out by putting it in reverse and giving it some throttle. They also tried sitting on the trunk of the car, as if to give the rear tires more traction. I explained to them that their car was FWD, and had an open differential, so nothing was going to happen involving the engine power unless they could get the airborne driver's front wheel back on the ground.

I suggested that we all push the car backwards, and I'll hop in once the front wheel makes contact with the ground and put it in reverse. My plan worked perfectly. I'm a bauce.

I'm part of the Gentleman's Bass Club. I'm not sure what your club is, but I'm sure it's adequate enough for a guy like me (I made a funny)

are you alluding to the fact that aerodynamic drag increases with velocity? that's pretty nerdy.


...

today I bought ice so that my 5 lbs of grass fed organic beef would not thaw too fast before I got to the lake.

I witness a truck towing a bobcat on teh side of the road this afternoon.

The trailor had a flat, and he pulled the bobcat off the trailer to use it as a jack in order to change the tire.

I nominate this guy.






sidenote:

is it me, or is this just not so impressive results?
