This explains why the very detailed vector based illustrations I made back in the mid/late 90s on a PowerMac 7600 (200mhz 604e PPC) would bring the computer to its knees when all layers were turned on. Quite a lot of operations going on there. A couple years later when i opened those same files on a PowerMac G3, they… » 10/03/14 11:10am 10/03/14 11:10am

Never shave with peanut butter.. you eat that. Be a real man and grow a beard, then you don't have to waste money on razors and shaving cream. I have been using the same razor when I occasionally trim up my beard for the last nearly 3 years. And I just later up a little hand soap when I do use the razor.

From what i can gather.. you average a little more than $1/ 1000 views.. so if they get 750k views they would completely cover the price of the phone if it was rendered unusable.

I always buy the Baguettes from the bakery section at the end of the day (they will sometimes be marked down) the night before I want french toast. I will then slice them and cover them with paper towels over night allowing them to go stale. Usually I mix up the liquids the night before as well, that way in the AM… » 9/23/14 9:16am 9/23/14 9:16am

Heck.. you can buy a brand new concrete mixer on craigslist for $150 and take your time with the project then sell it for $100 later. Or find a better one on CL for a little more. Use it and then sell it for what you pair for it. I've known people who "rent" tools from CL, it just ties up a little bit of money, but… » 9/23/14 9:10am 9/23/14 9:10am
