| O-T Lounge|| Every Halloween I think about that foreign exchange student in BR that got shot - LessofLes on 10/31/13 at 10:02 am|
Anyone remember that? Happened back in the mid/late 90's I think. I think he was dressed up, acting funny, not understanding English too well and a scared homeowner shot him. Very unfortunate situation.
I'm too lazy to google it but for some reason I think about it every year on Halloween. ...
| O-T Lounge|| OT Mechanics - Front end alignment question - LessofLes on 9/27/13 at 2:46 pm|
Shop says my left front is .13 toed in and my right front is toed in .14 - "for a total of almost a 1/4 inch" they say.
How much room for error is there in their finding?
Where does that rank on the scale of 1 being "it's fine" to 10 being "you're gonna die in a fiery crash" ? ...
| O-T Lounge|| In heavy interstate traffic, are you a chronic lane changer? - LessofLes on 9/12/13 at 8:33 am|
Are you the guy who makes lane change after lane change in heavy traffic? Can't stand to see one car length open so you jump in it? Oblivious to the fact that that lane isn't moving any faster than the others? Where do you think you're going?
Or do you go with the flow for the most part?
| O-T Lounge|| Being solicited by a vendor inside of a retail store - LessofLes on 9/9/13 at 4:25 pm|
Does that kind of thing bother you? I very much dislike being approached by someone from Dish Network or Direct TV with a sales pitch while I'm inside of Best Buy.
It happens at Sam's too but that's what I get for slumming.
Screw you sales people!
He mad. ...
| O-T Lounge|| How do you decide where you should be buried? - LessofLes on 8/26/13 at 8:20 am|
Personally, I want to be cremated. But for those who grew up in one town but may have moved and built a life somewhere else. How do you decide your final resting place?
I would be the first family member to buck the trend of not being buried where my great grandparents, grandparents and other fa...

My garage cleaning continues and I dug out a generator that I couldn't repair (short in the wiring harness leading to the gen). Motor runs great and shows as brand new.
I need a cool new project - garage cleaning sucks.
What would you do/build with it?...

I just learned while watching football game highlights on youtube that a right or left arrow will move the video a few seconds back or forward in the same fashion that my dvr remote works. Never knew that. #winning
Pay it forward. Post something (anything - not just computer related) that may be ...

I'm in unclutter mode. My wife collected all of the Disney videos back in the day on VHS. I'm tired of them taking up space. (In a box in a closet) We have them on DVD as well.
Keep or toss? ...

| Money Talk|| Borrowing from your 401K - LessofLes on 7/10/13 at 10:12 am|
I worked with a guy who borrowed several times from his 401K for various reasons. Most of it was spent building a home he had to sell because of a divorce. Also, he no longer works for the company.
He led a very overextended life and doubt that he's in a position to pay those loans back. What's t...

| O-T Lounge|| Have you ever accidentally put a lighter in the dryer? - LessofLes on 7/2/13 at 10:44 pm|
How long? Anything happen?
I just heard an odd noise coming out of my dryer and walked over to find my cigar torch and cutter banging around in there. It was only in there for a couple of minutes. It still works - yay.
What do you think would have happened if I left it in there for the entire...

Can you stereotype a group of people based on commercials?
Watching golf yesterday and it's obvious that middle aged white people nearing retirement are impotent and drive luxury sedans.
What others are out there that are pretty obvious to you?...
| O-T Lounge|| OT Vodka Drinkers - how long does a fifth of Vodka last you? - LessofLes on 5/29/13 at 9:13 pm|
Recently I found a new mixed drink that I like. Stress has been heavy lately so I bought a new bottle 5 days ago and just emptied it tonight.
It's casual drinking in the evenings between 7-10pm and results in a minor buzz at best.
Where do you think that fits on the consumption scale? (1 being...

Who here does the Supper Club thing?
My neighbors love Supper Club and are always trying to get us to join their group. I'm suspicious. They won't miss it for anything and always pawn their kids off to attend or host.
Are they spouse swapping at these things? I've seen some of the folks who a...

| O-T Lounge|| Left my mower out in the rain. Am I screwed? - LessofLes on 5/4/13 at 2:10 pm|
Left my new John Deere walk behind out last night and it rained. I hosed it off after cutting the grass and left it out to dry on a patio under a large deck so it was semi-covered. Still got wet from above though because it rained all night.
Do I need to do anything before I try to start it?...

I have a 2 ton unit that services our top floor. It's not cooling. Compressor kicks on, it's not freezing up yet its not moving heat like the other 2 units are when you place your hand on top of the fan.
I had a service guy use a stop leak product on it at the end of last season to fix a small l...

I swear this thing eats brake pads. City driving, small hilly conditions.
I'm open to paying a little more for a better product if it's worth it.
I'm pretty handy and would love to do this myself just for adventure but I don't have alot of time. Can I expect to get the front done one evening...
