What's the appeal of Freaks & Geeks? - PenguinNinja on 3/21/17 at 10:37 pm
To be clear, I'm not saying there isn't an appeal, I've just never seen the show so I don't know what it is. I just watched the first episode, and it got me curious as to what about the series drives the cult following. Is it that it's hilarious? The nostalgia factor? Feel good? I trust I...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (17)

Legally, what physical discipline constitutes abuse these days? - PenguinNinja on 3/21/17 at 7:02 pm
My 8-month old son was eating tonight, and he threw some food at his mom and yelled. I found myself thinking that if he were 8 years old and did that, I maybe inclined to give him a swift, appropriately firm,open-handed pop upside the back of his head. I don't think seeing this in public would...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (11)

Anyone ever used an engineless push mower? - PenguinNinja on 2/25/17 at 4:02 pm
How well do they work? I live in the city and have a really small yard (maybe 300-500 sq. ft.) but I'm thinking this would be quicker and easier than weed eating the whole thing every 5 days in the summer. They start at $60 on Amazon. What's the catch?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (25)
Tankless Water Heater Flush: DIY or hire plumber? - PenguinNinja on 2/17/17 at 9:20 am
There are YouTube vids galore that make this look really easy, so I was thinking about doing this myself. Has anyone tried this? Should I go it alone, or hire a plumber? My concern with a plumber is that it looks like it'll take some time (1-2 hrs), so it probably won't be cheap. If I do...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (9)
