Ripping a piece of Saran Wrap out of the box in a straight line....that's hard for me :/  I think it should come pre cut.

I would be afraid of that to! We had a tiny piece of tin foil left one time and it did the same thing. It was like squirting out fireworks! Weird! Glad you didn't catch the house on fire!

We purchase the 3000 foot roll from Costco. Advantages:

1.Fits nicely in a kitchen drawer.

2.Comes out smoothly because the box is heavy and stays in place - no more fiddling with a small, flimsy box in one hand while trying to get the plastic to come out smoothly with the other hand

3.Comes with a very nice slide cutter on the box.

4. You almost never run out.

The only thing he is helping is himself. That twit is on twitter again acting like a big baby. Not becoming of a U.S President.

It's even more dangerous because he supports random murders of everyone who is not white :( It's in his hate filled speeches. The country voted for Hillary. The electoral system vote for him. My friend be safe.

A foetus spends months in the womb, growing little bits of this and little bits of that until it finally looks something like a miniature human being, then when it suits him, he decides to come out.

Does he check with Mum first? Oh, no! He doesn't care where she is or what she's doing but, bull-at-a-gate, he says, "Get out of my way. I'm coming through." And he does, without the slightest consideration for the pain of his passage. And what's the first thing he does when he sees the light of day? He cries! Then he eats.

Honestly, I don't know why women bother to put up with such an inconvenience.

Now if God had been a woman instead of a crusty old man, he'd have spent a lot more time thinking about the design. Wouldn't it have been better if women were born with Velcro flaps, or zippers on their wombs? When junior is ready to be born he just tugs on a signal cord, Mum opens the flap, and out he comes.

It just doesn't have to be this hard.


(I just ran that by Mrs Didge and she pointed out that Velcro and zippers didn't exist back then. Hey! It's God we're talking about, Couldn't he have invented them?)

No problem, PP. Everything is funny if you look at it from the right perspective. In 2006 I set up a web page for a seniors' educational group and, to make it interesting, interviewed about a dozen of the leading tutors.

One of the questions I asked was, "Have you got any funny stories related to your class?" Alas! none of them had one. So I then asked, "Have you had any disasters?" And every one of them found one.

"Funny" and "disastrous" are the same thing if only we find the right perspective.

Removing the lid from a jar of pickles. Sometimes it's like I need a jackhammer to get it off.

Getting rid of an old TV. No thrift shops would take it, garbage won't take it, can't put it in a dumpster...there's a reason why people abandon them on the side of the road!

In Oz thrift shops generally have a policy against accepting eledtronics. I'd better hope my big screen TV keeps working. It won't fit in the trash can.

Under the California Electronic Waste Recycling Act of 2003 (known as SB20), retailers, resellers that ship to, sell or lease certain electronic products in California must collect a fee from the consumer at the time of purchase. The fees are collected by the State, and are used to reimburse registered collectors and recyclers for the electronic devices that they collect and recycle in California.

From my experience the businesses that have grown up to take advantage of this law will actually accept anything remotely electronic and it matters not if it works or not. . The local one even accepted an old electric blanket control.

That sounds like a great and workable idea. We have no such thing here. There is nowhere to get rid of old electronics.

You copied this from reddit but that's none of my business. Just sayin'.

Thinking of an answer to this question apart from saying the above is a lot harder than it needs to be.
