    Things you wish you never got involved in halfway through it...

    I looked over at my laptop and it finally sunk in how gnarly dirty it was. So I figured I would take every key off, wash them and put them all back on. About the time I got them all off I had regretted my decision to get involved with this. It worked out cool in the long run, but I really wish I just didn't burn the last hours of daylight doing this.

    Whatchu got? Relationships are too easy

    I did! Luckily I had an identical keyboard right on the desk next to me to check for reference.

    Stop using your keyboard as a jizz rag.

    if there doesn't come a point where you ask yourself why or how did you ever get yourself into a fuckedup situation like this

    then it's not an adventure

    Any time I work on my bike or car. Or when I go touring, although I usually change my mind and turn around within 100 yards of the trailhead.

    No fun at all. I put mine back on randomly. The space bar is hanging off the side where delete should be, and my tab key says 5 with a % sign over it.

    Usually, when the snow has been falling for 2-3 days, we haven't made any power in 3-4 days, accumulation is somewhere between 4' -5', been plowing for 12 hours straight and piles are higher than the truck, and I'm running out of places to plow it, I start wondering WTF I'm doing up there.

    thinkin that the 'i just smoked an ant' thread might qualify here...
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    I ate an entire 1/8th of boomers in college and realized waaaaaay before the halfway point (about 30 minutes later when the room started breathing and I was physically attacked by a house plant) that it probably wasn't a wise decision. Fun times though.
    I used to hike 2 hours for 10 minutes of turns on 207 gs skis, without needing “skins” or “hike mode.” Tell me again how I’m a gaper.

    I took my 1976 BMW 2002 apart. ALL the way apart.
    Down to the metal, glass out, carpet, engine ect.
    I did get it back together after a year, painting, new headliner but
    man I never thought it would ever happen.

    My first time drywalling I decided to do a ceiling. How hard can it be?

    Wow, what a mistake. Got half way through, saw how crappy my work was, and hired a guy to finish it. Lesson learned.

    On that note - deciding to paint all our ceilings (in our old house.) After the 1st hour of having my hands over my head I was over it -- we had 8 rooms left.

    Never again.

    Butchering deer that were still nearly completely frozen in a friends unheated garage. After the first hind quarter my hands felt like clubs holding onto a extremely sharp knife. Not sure how I didn't end up losing a finger or two after that.

    Great thread.

    But every cloud has a silver lining and now, by comparison, I am absolutely *certain* of what an amazing, wonderful, considerate, cooperative, smart, great, unspoiled/unselfish teenaged kid I have!
