    An armed society is a polite society.

    I hate this quote. Most people toting guns are rude and many are
    looking for a reason to use them. Walk around Memphis after dark.
    It's a war zone.

    How many people toting guns have you met that were rude to you? I've met many rude people and none of them carried guns. People that are rude are rude, armed of not. Please stop giving inanimant objects the power of humanity. They can not be good,bad,right,wrong. It's a piece of metal the person using it is in control not the gun.

    I hate UPONOR brand PEX....
    2nd pinhole near a compression fitting I've found in last couple years... Repaired with Sharkbite brand PEX. Got drywall repair to do now...

    Pinholes SUCK! I can feel the hate from here.

    All the copper in the houses around here is old, and probably something in the water messing it up. Pinhole leaks and the accompanying plumbing and drywall repairs like once or twice a year til you fix it all. Awful.

    In copper piping, pinholes are a pain in the rear but I have found a cheap solution for when you have those hard to reach places.

    I use those saddles, like for connecting an ice maker from a fridge. They are cheap, put them over the pinhole and close the valve. I have one that has been on for over 4 years with no further problems.

    Typically I have to rip open drywall to get to the leak, and at that point I’d rather fix it the right way - but I’ll keep this in mind for temporary patches or maybe something really hard to reach, it’s not a bad idea in the right scenario.

    What I really want is one of the copper fitting Propress machines, but they are $$$ so it’s hard to justify. Avoid paying a plumber and drywall repairs enough times and it would pay for itself, though.

    Fitted sheets, impossible to fold properly, when you wash and dry them other items get stuck in them not washing or drying them properly and fitting them on the bed. Majority of times when making the kid's bed, the sides end up on the top and bottom.

    I believe this was posted in the 'post a photo' thread at some point, but it seems apropos here, too.

    I hate painting a room and realizing I forgot to remove the lint from the roller, and now I have to individually pick the lint off of the wall which dried in (the stuff I didn't pick off while painting) before applying the second coat. And then I realized that I did 3 walls perfectly but the fourth was a little too thin.

    Okay the second coat seems to have made the wall look essentially flawless though there are still minor imperfections.

    Ironically, it looks better than the paint job done by the contracted painters in '08 when they built the house. So I'll take that one with pride

    Yeah I've been going to town but I think it's just swelling on the edges or the OSB so it should be a quick and easy fix. Thankfully it doesn't look like I'll need underlayment.

    I would use underlayment if I were doing that job, it's not that expensive and it will be a better job.

    I was going to but I managed to flatten it in about an hour with a sander, some screws, and sinking the protruding nails. Half the floor is installed and it's perfectly flat. Starting on the other half very soon.
