Random possibly useful fact

Well there is one for useless ones how about one for not so useless ones

The caps off plastic soda bottles have the same threading as garden hoses, well at least in the US,  and can be used to cap off a leaky outside faucet till you can fix it

When buying socks make your hand into a fist and wrap the sock around your fist.  The toe and heel should slightly overlap for a good fit.  This is particularly useful when buying socks for youngsters or when buying them at a thrift store.

This thread could well prove to be useful.
I know, I know, it's just that I don't know what should be there. :GA:
Could put some awesome Jack quote in there.

If you try to rape a Swedish transsexual believing it is a genetic woman, you will not be sentenced for rape attempt: Transgender woman appeals rape acquittal

He did get four months for other stuff, though. And he has to pay a little over $2000 in compensation to the victim. Yay for Swedish justice!  ::)

WD-40 is more useful in cleaning things than lubricating them. For that Sea Foam Deep Creep is the way to go

Putting a cheap furnace air filter on the back of a plain box fan will take a lot of dust out of the air during any kind of dusty work like demolition or sanding plaster

Some like their picture taken.  You just have to find the right one, like Sugar Bush.

I have been using WD40 to get carpet tape off my hardwood floors.  Doesn't work all that well, but was the best advice the interwebz could offer.  :(

@ Genesis - From her website:  "Sugar Bush Squirrel  is a real, live Eastern Gray Squirrel who is owned and photographed by  Ms. Kelly Foxton. Rescued, as a baby in her nest, from a tree which was being cut down, she is now living the 'good life' with Kelly in Boca Raton, Florida. A small, lime-green parrot, named Rio, is her big sister and constant companion."
