    How to Buy an Ex-Ambulance

    "Paramedics keep people alive until they arrive at the hospital and can get more attention."You make it sound as though paramedics are somehow magical and people will only die once handed over to less competent individuals such as consultants and surgeons. People rarely die in ambulances because they will likely spend less than 15 mins inside one. Folks rarely die in elevators but I wouldn't enter one to escape a fire simply on that knowledge. :D

    Here in Britain recreational vehicles simply must have a second floor in order to accommodate one's billiards table...http://www.ensignbus.com/double-deckers.html

    DIY Yellow Jacket Bottle Trap

    When standing outdoors it doesn't matter if a person smells of body odour, deodourant, coffee, perfume, feet, someone else's feet or even the biblical gift of Frankencence a wasp will still choose you over all things available to fly within inches of and it will do so near your head, neck or torso. It will continue to do this even if you try to move away from it.If I was known to be aggressive, to sting without provocation and continuously got up in people's faces I would expect to be killed. Wasps, or YJ's as they are known in the US, clearly have not evolved to recognise humans as animals that do not like to be antagonised.

    DIY Pottery Wheel  (Using Treadmill motor)

    Takes me back to the days when I used to take my shirt off and sit behind women at these wheels while humming 'Unchained Melody'. At least until I was ordered to stop by the courts.

    Enhanced DeWalt Drill Before And After

    I can't think of anything other than some sort of home-made jig with a bunch of clamps that you can attach to the drill when needed and then clamp to the part also.Failing that, I have read about a tip for folks with sight problems where you place a CD reflective side up around the hole and you can line your drill up with it's reflection. Just a couple of ideas for ya, maybe help you think up a workaround :)

    8 Life Hacks With Steel Wool

    That was a great idea for the loose screw! What I used to do is place a wooden matchstick in to the screwhole tail-first as far as it could go then break the remainder of the stick off so that it was flush with the surface. Again you get a tighter tolerance for your screw, but I like how with steel wool at least the screw would be dead center of the hole, useful when accuracy is a must.
