Record related or otherwise.I don't need to post a video of this but:Here's mine, I discovered that when my laptop trackpad and screen and key board became smudged the hell up I used a q tip with rubbing alcohol to clean them and it took all smudges away, so I did the same with my useless not working Blackberry trackball and once the alcohol evaporated it works like new again!

    Replacing spark plugs.

    Number each spark plug wire so you can match each to the spark plug they came from. Remove one at a time for simplicity.

    Use a deep socket to remove your first spark plug being careful not to get any debris in the hole.

    Replace with new spark plug (gently!)

    Replace spark plug wire.

    Continue in the same fashion for each spark plug (4, 6, or 8)

    Examine your spark plug wire set. If they are worn, frayed, or broken anywhere, replace the wires as well, following the numbering and one-by-one instructions above. It's important they are replaced in the same order or the engine will not fire correctly.

    Time: 20-30 mins

    Cost: $10-$30 for plugs (avg), $10-$30 for wires (avg)

    if you go to a thrift and the record you want has the price marked in permanent marker or that wax pencil, use a bit of hairspray, i guarantee it will rub right off, and nothing else works like that. btw i'm mad that something that toxic is marketed for people to put on their bodies and to inhale?

    make sure you gap them shits to OEM specifications or you'll be misfiring and/or burning plug gaps closed.

    I've never had a problem with pre-gapped plugs, but true if they're not.

    I think she means AFTER you've paid for it and gotten home. But I must admit, I thought it was all leading to a cheeky switch-price-tags technique.

    Shows how my mind works, I didn't even consider it just as a clean-up method.


    Ok


    yaaaaay

    I like to use a whisk to make guacamole -- it achieves a nice chunky smoothness.

    I am gonna guess she's talking about eating the seeds but doing some technique like this to get that pith crap out the way:



    That has worked for me although pomegranates aren't in season now but hopefully that helps.

    Take a mouthful of tab water, don't swallow it but keep it in your mouth while you're peeling and chopping onions. You won't shed a tear.

    When removing a bust, shattered lightbulb that has no glass left or just jagged fragments that look like they could shred up you fingers, jam a raw carrot into its base and screw it out.

    For horsefly bites, lick the coating off one side of an aspirin, get it moist and pasty, and apply directly to the bite. The swelling and itching will disappear in minutes.

  • FrankFrank 2,370 Posts
    Get rid if itchy mosquito bites by holding a lit cigarette as long and as close to the bite as you can handle and without actually burning your skin. The anti-blood-clogging stuff, mosquitos inject into your skin while sucking your blood and that's also responsible for the itching is an enzyme that gets destroyed by heat.
