    FWIW, we've had pretty good results keeping mice out of the engine bay by placing a ziploc with some old fashioned moth balls on the garage floor underneath the engine area (when parked). Put a couple holes in the ziploc to let the smell out.

    The dogs ignore the moth balls so no concern there.

    We haven't had mice chew up any wiring in cars, but they have built nests in air boxes and cabin filter boxes, and chewed up the filters.

    Moth balls are also supposed to keep your tools from rusting in the garage if they're in a closed toolbox or cabinet.

    Where are the mothballs in your scenario?

    Tools are in a toolbox. Toolbox is apparently in a garage. Is the garage an essential part of this alchemy?

    Dunno, his dog is at least part Labrador. They eat anything. And Crash doesn't appear to be the sharpest tool in the shed. Ymmv.

    That face melts my heart.

    I'm not the one who jumped out of a moving vehicle. Yet. Hold my beer and watch this! Crash reminds me of my younger self. Can we still be friends?

    Costco batteries, at least in the last couple of years, SUCK BAD.
    Pulled one out of the package a day or two ago, already leaking.

    So, yeah.

    Not so sure about that. I just pulled 3 kirkland batteries out of a headlamp. Put 3 duracells in. Headlamp won't turn on. Check them side by side, the nub on the negative end of the duracells is shorter than the kirkland batteries.

    Is it really that difficult to figure out how to use the product? Do people really need cartoon bears with dirty backsides?

    After this morning’s eye operation to repair the hole in my macula, I now have to sit/lay face down for a week.
    No elevation above 2,000’ for at least a couple of months, while the gas bubble disburses.

    Okay so I've seen this ad 3x now since I read this post and I can't stop thinking about it. The dispatcher most definitely does not ask if the woman's head is above water. She asks some questions to understand the situation (in a car, filling with water) and at the end says "help is on its way, try to keep your head above water, okay?"

    The dispatcher is reassuring the caller and giving them a specific instruction to focus on. Now I'm no dispatcher expert but I bet that's day 1 material right there. You owe Tim Cook an apology.

    Bring them back to Costco. A) get money back; B) they’ll know they need to improve

Hard to know exactly what happened talking to a kid who got wrecked, so I don't know if I should be annoyed or enraged.

    But the worst part is the outcome, small break in her upper arm that will keep her out of commission for at least 4 weeks. She's so bummed. Ugh.
    That sucks Danno. Sorry for her.

    "Do you have the cycles for this?"

    It's time. Do you have time for this. WTF is a cycle? How is it measured? Do I have like 50 cycles a day? How many of these mysterious cycles will this particular task consume?

    My response is almost always "Yep. Just throw it on the pile, we'll get to it."

    I've never heard anyone say this, but I agree that it's annoying. I'll make a note that if I DO hear it I'll ask the person what the hell they're talking about.

    Only thing I can think of where that may be relevant is when on the dating scene and a woman with a ticking clock and standing on the precipice of menopause is telling you she wants babies and stat. That's when it could be correct to say "Do you have the cycles for this?"

    You may or may not get slapped.

    Do you work with crystal people? Different crystals create different frequencies which might define the number of cycles you have per day.

    Or you work in a laundromat.
