    Yup. More brain farts from my old brain.

    My specialty was math in High School. I couldn't afford college back then and we never had spell check or auto correction or even the INTERNET. :s :p

    I HATED GRAMMER because I knew I was going to need Math in my life, not spelling or punctuation lessons. That was 45 years ago too.
    Can you give me just a little break? :)

    Is an exclamation point supposed to be right after the word? I'm serious. I want to learn.

    Considering I've only been typing for a total of 2 years, plus or minus maybe, I think I get by pretty well. I remember typing for 2+ hours in the beginning of me conversing on the web. Instead of hitting Enter, I hit the Delete button. :s My wife and I couldn't retrieve it at that time. We were beginners and our daughter hadn't advanced enough in her Computer College Coarse side interest to be helpful. All she could say, help, or advise me on that dilemma was this: Stay away from that Delete button next time! . LOL!

    You do just fine. :) I was born in 1964, and I didn't buy my first computer until 2003. I still type with 2 fingers, although having been on forums where I have over 100,000 posts, these 2 fingers are getting pretty good. HAHAHA

    I just found the irony of your sentence amusing. "Never to old to learn" I figured I would help you have fun. :p

    By the way. I figured out how to build my shed's BASTERD ROOF all by myself 15 years ago. I'm right proud of that accomplishment. Critical mathematical measurements and complicated compound angles were applied. In my world , these talents of carpentry trump a little grammar error any day. ;)

    a little before sunset tonight in the ol' backyard -- zero degrees (F, that is) with blowing & drifting snow.

    It looks nice out there. but it's not

    I celebrated the new year by slicing part of my thumb off on the mandolin slicer I got for Christmas. It took a big corner of the thumbnail, side, and back clean off. There was nothing to reattach, and the artery severed was difficult to cauterize. Two trips to the ER and it’s on the mend. It hurts like hell.

    John, my best advice to you is for the next few weeks, don't hitch-hike in any narrow subway tunnels. :p

    Sorry about your injury. :#
    Also 2 trips to the hospital to start your new years off had to suck big time also.

    Those Mandolin slicers don't discriminate one bit. Whatever touches that blade, it's getting sliced. I gave mine to my Step Daughter. I got another one but I've stayed away from it for some reason. :#

    Again, sorry about your severe thumb slicing.

    Ironic that I JUST watched Iron Chef the other night and an Iron Chef Sicaro I think he was using his bare hand. Alton Brown, the mc, said do not do this at home people! This is a chef that has 30 years experience. You at home should use the puck that comes with them at all times. And here it happens to you. Those slicers are great but man they're EVIL weapons towards our fingers, knuckles, and thumbs now too.

    Hope your thumb heals in a good way.

    -19.5 F to be exact.


    Why does Kelvin measurement exist ? what is the reason ? I understand Celsius.

    It allows 0 to mean an absolute absence of heat, and go up from there.


    Yeah and what Doc said too!!

    I thought about that stuff a while ago tonight. Thanks for reminding me. Really.

    Liquid Nitrogen Temperature
    January 22, 2014Uncategorized
    Liquid Nitrogen Temperature – minus 196 Celsius, 77 kelvin – but this is not the whole story, because this is the temperature that liquid nitrogen boils at so it could be considerably colder than that.

    Like and element Nitrogen has three phases, solid, liquid and gas. The “normal” state of nitrogen is that of a gas – that is most of what we inhale/exhale. Approximately 80% of the atmosphere is made up of nitrogen gas. To make nitro ice cream, liquid nitrogen is used.
    The temperature of liquid nitrogen depends upon pressure – at atmospheric pressure this must be below -196 °C. By increasing the pressure, then it is possible to make liquid nitrogen at a higher temperature – this is how the nitrogen is separated from the air in the first place. It cannot be stored in small quantities as a liquid because in order to keep the pressure it would obviously need to be a stored in a sealed container – but in order to use, the release of pressure would cause rapid boiling and much of the gas would be lost.
    Instead the liquid nitrogen is stored in vacuum flasks that insulate is from heat, but allow it to evaporate as needed. This wau it can be stored for up to a week if well insulated.
    Because the liquid nitrogen is open to the atmosphere then as it evaporates it releases heat energy which in turn will keep the liquid cool – it is effectively held at it boiling point of -195 degrees Celsius.

    Yeah, I had literally just started practicing with it. I used the guard for sweet potatoes, but then I showed my little one that it could do a banana. I’m ordering cutting gloves once I’m healed and ready to cook.

    Man that scenario brought back why I'm afraid of the Mandolin slicers. I want to slice without the puck myself!

    I forget what I was slicing with that first mandolin I had, ( It was a OXO brand. A real nice one too ) but I too used that puck at first. YUP , at first. Then I did the same thing :( , I said I can do this barehanded. I KNOW I got down so far I sliced a microscopic piece of my skin. That woke me up real fast and I retired that weapon after it was cleaned. I told my Step Daughter the words we all know. Be VERY careful!

    So far she's done ok.
    I have yet to use my second one. LOL

    I’ve got a photo from last years mandolin accident. Cleaned the tip of my thumb right off. No ER trip as i’m afraid of doctors. Would rather suffer.

    What's all this talk about mandolin accidents?
    Maybe some finger picks are needed...



    Sorry, I realize these are serious mishaps & no laughing matter -- but I am still amused by the name of these slicing gizmos.

    Thimbles should come with the slicers. One for each digit.
