As a child? I'm still doing it (looks left to disassembled Sony TV)

Aged about seven I left my parents with a massive repair bill after I took my Aunt Martha's clock apart and I couldn't get it back together, things have improved now though because I've learned to fix stuff I break.

Z + Y . Y + Y . Z We know B . B = B = X . Y + X . Y + X . Z + Y + Y . Z We know A . B + A . B = A . B =...

When the first Apple Mac was released Apple ran a TV advert that first showed the IBM PC manuals (which landed on the desk with an almighty thud) and then the very thin Mac manual which just floated down. The interface is suppos...

Easy, they're called 'Soap Operas' because the first one (somewhere in the USA I believe) was sponsored by a soap company.

Over the years I've had a number of relationships where someone has said that they're aware that I have AS and they're prepared to deal with it and live with it, then later on they leave because they find out that it's not as easy as it first appears.

Under English law someone under eighteen CANNOT sign a legally binding contract so your sister is free to walk away from the contract anytime she wants. What I don't know is the legal position regarding the phone itself, to avoid theft charges she may have to hand it back. Disclaimer: This is NOT le...

Aged 50 I was in a similar position to you, only my boss was a French woman with zero management skills and a sharp tongue. The difference is that I always planned to retire at fifty so the day after my birthday I walked into her office, put my resignation on her desk, and walked out. I now work for...
