Careful, now.  I enjoy having a place to free my inner grouch.  I don't want it locked because people started getting all confrontational and jingoish.

Is that "ter-MAH-toe" or "toe-MAY-toe"? :whistle:
I think Vermis is right. We should call the whole thing off.

I really don't understand why people hate tomatoes and onions :tantrum: they are in everything because they are really good for you! ;)  :lol:

Seriously, though, I really do love onions. Especially in curry. But this is the wrong thead for that , so ...
I really do hate avacado.  Tastes like rotten fruit and the texture is what I imagine rotten fruit to be like! Why do people like this stuff? Are they insane? And what is with guacamole?  A waste of good chillis and lime juice, if you ask me! :tantrum:

"Is it safe to use ordinary household cyanoacrylate glue as a medical glue?

According to Reference 7, most cyanoacrylate glues not designed specifically for medical use are formulated from methyl-2-cyanoacrylate, since it produces the strongest bond. Not only can such glues irritate the skin, during polymerization they can generate significant heat, to the point of causing skin burns. I gather this is a problem only if a large area of skin is affected. But to err on the side of safety, you should <snip> only use medically-approved glue, not the ordinary kind."

 :wink:

(Ref 7. Quinn, J., & Kissack, J., "Tissue Adhesives for Laceration Repair During Sporting Events," Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine, Vol. 4 No. 4, 1994, p. 245)

The heat effect is what I use to tell me when I've spilt superglue on my hand!

A great trick for those that don't know, superglue will also bond with water - so for those occasional large spills on the hands, water first helps with the heat, then it forms the superglue into a nice shell that is easily peeled off.  Of course, try not to spill superglue in the first place, but I know we've all done it ... ;)

It will also bond with bi-carb of soda (sodium bicarbonate) found in most kitchens, it forms a solid mass which then peels off. I also use this for gap filling.

Things that really mildly irritate me: radio ads.  Driving time is somewhat soured by five minutes of decent-to-good music followed by ten minutes of commercials.  I gotta get more CDs.

The petrol station  where I work is starting to p**s me off - or rather the (clumsy) idiots who use it  :tantrum:
Damage caused since November :
1) Pump completely obliterated by man in 4x4 reversing out of parking space by shop at speed - his excuse - "my hand slipped on the steering wheel "  :hmmm

2) Skip lorry reversed into the side of the carwash bending the steel frame and taking out a large pane of glass - excuse - " I didn't think I was that close...."  :scratchhead:

3) Steel bollard with concrete base put in place to stop HGVs driving over the grass edge taken out by an HGV ( not suprisingly !) - excuse - don't know the b*****d didn't bother stopping  :whah?:

4) And yesterday .... An HGV destroyed a very large concrete island with a very large red and white
steel post in it followed by the complete end of the canopy. He actually had two goes at the island first he clipped it as he reversed and then pulled forward to finish it off before continueing into the canopy. Excuse -  :swear:

The place is starting to look post apocalyptic with all the damage I'm taking my camcorder down tomorrow night to make my own zombie flick -all I need is some zombified extras - wait that's most of my customers....... :whistle:

The town i'm in is at an elevation of around 4100 feet. Snow this time of year is hardly shocking. However, the person in charge of the buses in town, in their infinite wisdom, has decided that they don't need to be using chains, studs, snow tires, or anything of the like. The weather has gotten particularly bad this week, so right now the odds of the bus you're waiting for showing up at all are less than even.

On the upside, I guess when I'm telling my grandkids about how back in my day I walked to school uphill through the snow etc. there'll be some truth to it.

That I am going to bin a perfectly good 6 month old printer becasue it is cheaper to buy a new one than replace the ink cartridges.
I know I could buy cheap chinese ones but they are the reason I bought a new printer in the first place, they worked great for a few prints then leaked ink everywhere and fused the print head in place as well as making one hell of a mess of my desk.

I guess we do live in a throw away society.

i just did that, i bought the same printer i had before, it was cheaper to get the printer with ink than buy ink for my old printer :crazy:

If you've got a cartridge world near you they fill up old cartridges for a lot less than buying new ones.  (plus you are doing a LOT less damage to the environment.)

i got the same all in one printer as before, the cardridges lasted me nearly a year, and my scanner was on the blink so it worked out cheaper in the long run to get the same new printer for £30 plus i got a new scanner on it lol. To get the ink it would have been about £20 plus my scanner would have still been on the blink. :silly

Throw away the printer to replace the cartridges?  I think I need to sit down.

I am.  Convenient.

Cartridge world are notoriously incompetent for filling cartridges with the wrong ink. The cartridges are only built to last one tankful anyway, the integrated head and tank units are to be thrown out when empty, only separate tanks should be refilled. Don't trust Cartridge World to do this. The manufacturer can probably supply you with good ink, or some aftermarket refill kits may suit. Some machines may be able to take a continuous flow system, a set of large outboard tanks. Some users at Worldworks Games swear by them.

I have had more than one worn out junker on my desk with a customer complaining of low print quality only to open the hatch and find a Cartridge World cartridge inside with a worn out print head and tank full of congealed ink, and the tyres perishing and the blob of waste ink in the bottom has started corroding the steel chassis...
Electrostatic printers are worse as their worn out drums are painfully obvious, plus CW may put them in backwards...

This morning, I heard the gate swing, but no-one at the door.  Two minutes later I stood up, and caught a glimpse through the window of a courier getting back into his van and driving away with my package of putty samples.
Immediately phoned the number on the leaflet he left, and waited as the guy in the office phoned the courier.  Apparently two minutes of driving took him too far away, so he'll have to come back on Monday at the earliest. :rant:

What really p**sses me of: People who don't eat EVERYTHING. My wife doesn't eat fish, my eldest son DOES eat pasta and meatballs (that's about it...) and I used to love to cook. Interest is vaining with the family members turning most things down.
Funnily enough my daughter (who is vegetarian) eats just about ANY exotic dishes as long as there's no meat in it. So despite being vegetarian shes's the LEAST picky of the bunch.

I feel your pain..My family are the pickiest eaters imaginable, my oldest sister just having got out of her 'brocoli and plain pasta' phase (she refused to eat ANYTHING else 8:::). As a keen cook and carnivore, her refusal to eat beautiful hay roasted lamb is unfathomable... Its not like she's a vegetarian... :shrug: (don't get me started on them  :grrr:  :D only joking  :boing:)

That depends on whether you buffer your proteins against pressure effects using, amongst other things, ammonia, urea and cyanide.  :D

 :shrug: question about the sea. If you found a fish at the deepest part of the sea and brought it up to the surface really quickly would it explode, as a goldfish would implode if you took it to the bottom of the sea.
