Unfortunate timing with that post.

I've recently learned that replacing a light switch is actually (a.) incredibly easy and (b.) incredibly dangerous!

I've got this idea of setting up a home-repair YouTube channel with bad tim-and-eric graphic titles from iMovie, lots of holding the phone camera with the left hand while loosening bolts with the right hand, etc. The novelty would be along the lines of the unreliable narrator not knowing what the hell he's doing.
But not in an obvious way, like putting the red clamp on the black tab and the black clamp on the red tab. More like "okay, this washer hasn't been draining properly. First, before we begin, we're going to turn off the power and empty the tub here with this plastic pitcher" ... (one hour later...)
I've also always noticed some weird passive-aggressive vibes from Dads talking to their off-screen child holding the cellphone. "Are you pointing it over here? Can you see the nut and bolt? Is it in focus? QUIT SHAKING IT," but I don't know how to make that funny.
I do know the best advice comes from upper Midwesterners, the most patronizing from the Southerners, and the funniest are those old New York guys who use camera "tricks" like recording the breaker box, stopping the camera, stepping into the frame, and then start recording again, so that they pop magically into the picture.

I totally know what you’re going for here - sounds kind of like these photoshop tutorials this guy used to do but I am far too lazy and loaded with cough syrup to go a looking for them right now

Ha, what's the Mac app for PowerPoint? iPodium or whatever? Use the "puff of smoke" effect.

appreciate that someone noticed this thread is stupidly titled to ensure that things don't get po-faced, this is partly the raison d'etre of COGH

ito this oven door
the rubber seal is probably weak
there ought to be *some* air flow out the door, but not as much as is occurring
as noted the hinges may have been weakened during previous operations
inner seal also appears to be slipping
can i get thoughts on following:
washers placed strategically within hinge to tighten closing angle
two new seals, outer and inner (no idea how these are affixed)
mix or all of the above

happy to report that removal of door (theres a knack to this) and simple taking apart, resettling hinges and seals and reconstruction and rehanging (theres a knack to this) has the door as tight and right as a fella could wish
i was somewhat forced into action by coming home to the smell (but not other part) of gingerbread three times this week due to inconsistent bake
feminine wiles imo

It's easy to blame the dark, the mouth of a door.

hinges arrived an hour ago, door is now freshly-hung. couldnt have gone on and in much more smoothly but im still paranoid theres too much of a gap at top (tho its now definitely straighter and tighter than before)
currently checking how long it takes to go from 0 to 190 anything less than 15 mins ill take as success
