Do you understand everything they say clearly? Perhaps they want to discuss things on a grad-student level, and you want to contribute high school insight. My wife was probably quite offended one night when I peeled her arms from around my neck and walked away. We had gone to the park to watch firew...

Don't you just love the split phase system giving the 220 volts between line conductors on different phases. Yes, but initially it confused me that it was called single phase. After I learned about three phase power, I went to the head office of Ontario Power, took the elevator to the engineer's fl...

My mother was dying before she asked me why I left home, and learned that dad had kicked me out. Different enough?

I read the books. The whole series is like the part from "The Princess Bride" when Westley dies and Buttercup marries Humperdinck and the kid says "Grampa, you're telling the story wrong!" except that in *this* series the princess doesn't ever wake up and the wrong people die an...

I went about two decades just touch typing with Dvorak. Now I have rearranged the key caps myself. It was easy to do when cleaning. They are not all at an even height, but that is no problem.

To take the test for a Boy Scout cooking badge, you have to prepare bacon and eggs. To pass the test, you have to eat it. A course is the last thing I'd try. I learned by trying to imitate dishes I had enjoyed, and by reading about the healthiest things to work with. I had roommates to watch, but Yo...

You can probably find it in your keyboard settings for different countries.

I make very broad connections. I see a cat food commercial, and I see the wild animals starved or killed by the ranchers feeding the cats.

Even with great intentions, some parents are just not good with kids in general, and more are not good with special needs. Quite a few expect a child to carry on family traditions, or even to succeed at something a parent failed at. My parents were very good at not repeating the mistakes their paren...

I don't resent my family because they were muddling through in a world very different than their parents'. It had fallen apart before I even realized that family support was more real than Santa Claus or Military Intelligence. I was shocked to hear that other parents would help with homework and con...

It is really hard to shock yourself with a stove. Things are designed to fail in a safe way. The terminals on an element are held with a safe separation even without insulation, and if anything does go bad, it just hits the steel enclosure and blows a fuse. BTW, I once did my cooking for half a year...

Mine started making a weird buzzing sound and I ordered a replacement element for it.Problem solved.My stove is over ten years old and I’ve replaced two other burners because they just quit.I figured this one’s noise was it’s death rattle. So if your stove is older, that could be your problem. Don'...

Welcome, Tom. I remember those large classrooms, but I think it was due more to the lack of school construction. In grade 9, I was on shifts because nobody had noticed that all those elementary school kids would probably graduate. I got my education from books, and am sure that was best for me. An e...

When I was about 7, my dad borrowed a big clear face-shield so I could dress as a space man for Halloween. The costume (everything was hand made then) didn't include a vacuum seal to the faceplate, and I absolutely refused to wear it. My clothes are quite imperfect looking because I try to wear them...
