Found this old Raleigh 3 Speed on CL. The guy wants $100 for it, but he has already came down from $150. I can probably get it for $50.
I want to fix it up for my wife. Probably needs a good $100 worth of work. Is it worth it? Too much of hassle?

My Dad wants to build a natural pool. By natural, I mean no filtration pumps and chemicals, just plants and rocks and whatnot. He thinks he can do this himself.
I keep telling him that this will be an epic failure and he will just create a giant mudpit in his backyard, but he is old and old peo...

Is there any permanent fix to this? I usually just pry them apart and spray some dry lube in between them when it gets really bad, but that will only last about a week or 2

I have some friends who are minimalists. By that, I mean all they have in their apartment is a mattress, a lamp, a bean bag, and a giant map on the wall with pins for places they have gone or want to go.
Almost all of their disposable income goes towards traveling. They choose to live this wa...

I have slugs eating my damn cat food every night. They leave those goddamn slug trails all over my back landing. Now the internet tells me that slugs love beer and you can put a bowl of beer out and they will drown in it, but now I'm worried that my cat will drink the beer and die.
