Try love potion
he def ain't gettin that ref
It's called being on the prowl.
Finding studs on a wall. I know the math for spacing, I use a stud finder, I see the LED's, I hear the beeps.
And then I drill. Swing and a miss. I have literally just drilled along a straight line making a dozen holes just to find the spot.
I'm also terrible at backing in to spaces straight. I line up my car, use (or not use) back up camera, see the lines on either side. I come to a stop and I look out the windshield and look to the sides. To my eyes, it looks like I'm straight, but then I'm way off. I'm actually better at backing a boat down a ramp on a trailer with an SUV than I am backing a sedan in to a regular parking spot.
Finally, I am horrible at pretending to care about conversation I don't care about. I used to be really good at it. Then I just got to be a wiseass to see how many sarcastic comments I could say without the person knowing. Now? I just go to work on my computer, look at my phone or something else.
The first shirt I ever ironed was the day of my wedding. somehow I didn't burn a hole in it.
Now if I had only not broken my nose a few weeks beforehand I would have been golden...
Get off the Boneyard K-Y.
You need to be on the "mediocre things I'm mediocre at" not this one. LOL
Ik you love me!
JP Donleavy's Unexpurgated Code covers this topic better than any other (if you can find it).
mau's married bro. settle down.
I've never been successful at peeling hard boiled eggs. ALWAYS tear off chunks from the top and usually end up just throwing that sucker in the trash.
So, a guy with the screen name "Fartman69" eats hard boiled eggs? That's a big surprise. I think you sit in my section at the football games.
I realized having breakfast this morning, I am 5 decades in and still can't properly open a new bag (wax) of cereal. I still refuse to use a sharp knife for a clean opening, probably due to pride. Are you supposed to?
Why do they 'still' make them so hard to open?
I've never actually successfully peeled one so no I don't eat them.
Every time my girlfriend does the weekly shopping she comes back bragging about the deals she got and how cheap it was. These are the weeks I have to stop nearly everyday after work to pick up the stuff she "forgot"
Use a steamer basket insert instead of boiling them and then put them in a bowl of ice water at the end. Come right off. Also, putting them straight into boiling water from the fridge if you want to boil them (and then ice bath). No idea why people put them in room temperature water and then bring it to a boil as that is what makes them impossible to peel.
lol i've read about putting baking soda in the boiling water, did that once and it seemed to help. But i do usually take it straight off the stove and keep it under running cold water, mostly because i'm rushing to eat them right away and the cold water makes it so my hands and fingers dont burn up. Maybe that cold water process helps.
You can also poke a small hole in the Shell on the bottom of the fat end. Be careful not to puncture the internal membrane doing this. . Water gets between the inside of the shell and the outside of the membrane. Makes it much easier to peel.
Two things I'm hilariously bad at:
Getting the USB cable in less than two tries. Which is impressive given there's really only two ways it can go in.
Grabbing the right key to my front/back doors depending on how I get into my apartment. I'd say 75% of the time I initially grab the wrong key. No idea why.
Actually the guy who invented the USB cable somehow made it so that the first time you try it the right way (no matter if it's your first or second attempt), it won't fit. It needs to warm up or something. Every USB cable plug in requires at least three and sometimes four attempts to get it to fit. It's the most amazing engineering accomplishment of the 2nd millennium.
Putting on the 'fitted' bed sheet is a true pain in the ass, that much like the USB is engineered to not go in correctly the first time.
Also, certain small memory things like what day the garbage goes out I just refuse to commit to memory. Passwords for websites are like that too.
If you are not using LastPass for password management, you are not doing it right.
I don't know how many of these tidbits I can keep laying on you guys.
