didn't know where to put this...

when I've had a padlock - and lost the key, I just use a side-grinder...

but. some tool-boxes (Ridgid Construction Gang Box, for instance) have a recessed lock-hole, so you can't get at it with a grinder...

I'd never seen this lock-opening method, but it sure looks "convenient" - and if you find the key again, it'll still work... (little "explosion" releases the tumblers / spring)

Is it just me or was that dude missing a finger on his right hand? Wonder why???

Sharp eye, the SoG... I'm sitting here grinning because when I saw the intro in Arabic, I just turned the sound off and watched.

When he began scrunching up match heads, I mentally connected the Arabic and the accelerant and thought: He must be different from others over there -- he has all his fingers. whistle: ;)

Someone asked me if I had plans for the fall, it took me a moment to realize they meant "autumn", not the collapse of civilization.
And somehow, someone thought it would be a great idea to take a bit of text and convert it to a graphic image so that .... ?!

Maybe my "wc" is off, but it says the text is 133 bytes. And my image info says the graphic is 315KB.

depends on the resolution of your monitor...

When I copy it using my MacAir it comes out 1,031,897 bytes because I have a high res monitor.
