Tom,

There is a plane leaving out of Ohare to Miami at 8pm. Should I be on it? Guru's tend to be "fly by nigh" ... if the price is right". LOL

Re: Questions For The Paint GURU?


Paint Guru,
Are blind people affected by color?
and if so, in what way?
And is there any proof?

Yes.
Bigotry affects everyone.
It doesn't matter whether you are blind or not.
If you don't have the same color skin as the racist ... he doesn't like you!
Color does affect even blind people (I'm sorry to say.)

Re: Questions For The Paint GURU?


your right.


More recently, studies have shown that colors can affect you when you don’t see them. Noted neuropsychologist Kurt Goldstein confirmed in his classic, The Organism, that a blindfolded person will experience physiological reactions under rays of different colors. In other words, the skin reads color, and our bodies, minds, and emotions respond.

Exactly how does this happen? Attached to the human brain is the pineal gland, which controls the daily rhythms of life. When light enters through the eyes or skin, it travels along neurological pathways to this pineal gland. Different colors give off different wavelength frequencies, and these different frequencies have different effects on us.

It’s not by chance that McDonald’s restaurants executives chose a golden color for their arches, and that employee uniforms of many successful fast food chains are a combination of yellow, range, and red. These colors, with some of the longest wavelengths, are known to stimulate the appetite. In fact, years ago, when Burger King changed the color of its employee uniforms to blue and green — colors reputed to suppress the appetite — sales went down considerably.

Ahhh, Psycology and science. One of my favorites!

The ancient Egyptians built temples for the sick that were bedecked with color and light. They set aside special colored rooms as sanctuaries where the sick could be bathed in lights of deep blue, violet, and pink.

Native American Indians also used color for healing ... to fight chronic illness and to heal injuries sustained during buffalo hunts and intertribal warfare.

Research demonstrates that the full spectrum of daylight is needed to stimulate our endocrine systems properly.

Re: Questions For The Paint GURU?


O Mighty Guru, :. How would you approach painting an old half rusted chain link fence. The thing is about 10 feet high, and surrounds a pool at an apartment complex. Seems like I painted a chain link fence with a thick nap roller a lonnng time back. The maintenence genious there thought it might should be sprayed. Thanks, Paul.

It's been windy lately in Indiana. If your overspray insurance isn't paid up ... I'd go with the roller.

the little xr7 is really not much of a pump, if you didn't know that, already. But if has got you through 3 projects, it might have paid for itself by now, and that's the name of the game!

the 515 tip is pretty much the best place to start w residential.
with the xr7 you may need to thin the product a bit.
Always use strainer bags! and flush the pump out well after use.

When it dies, get a graco 390/395 or titan 440i and you will be able to do most anything but spray the heavy bodied products and you can rent a rig by the day for that, before spending serious bucks.

Re: Questions For The Paint GURU?


It looks like "The Califonia Kid" hopped in my seat as I was out investigating a product for a friend. Thanks Left coast.

I'm thinking the boy needs a little education on the meaning of the numbers on spray tips, and the practical uses for each size.

I'm not so sure using a 515 with a 440 would be the best idea (unless you are spraying block filler). The sprayer will have a hard time keeping up.

First, I'm going to sugest getting an extention wand ($20-35) to get yourself closer to the ceiling. The low power sprayer you are using will exhaust your arm with the speed it pumps the paint out, and you will save your eyes some pain from the "White Rain". Second, drop it down to a 415. It will cause less wear and tear on your machine.

Here is a hyperlink to teach you what size you need for every surface and every product.

Re: Questions For The Paint GURU?


Can anyone point out anything booger has said that would be wrong so far? Different from what some would advise maybe but wrong?? Diff strokes for diff folks and all that. Booger made a bold statement at the beginning among what are actually strangers. If he was too far off base, the flaming would have already begun. I, for one, am enjoying this thread. Take big bails to make that statement in a forum like this and seemingly follow through.

You are definitely entitled to request that he not post anything on your threads. But likewise, he is entitled not to honor your request

And we like you too. "Crapo" is subjective. By the number of people replying, a good number do not share your outlook.

One thing I've learned about internet forums in the last 11 years, they are diverse and no one person can direct or dictate what goes on. I have found that if I do not like a person or a thread, I stay away from it. And if everyone wants the person to go away, then he is not answered. But apparently, by the number of responses, many people are enjoying the fun here. Personally, I wonder about paint_booger. My jury is still out. But if I find I do not think he is a valuable asset, then I'll ignore him. You oughta try it. You'll like it.

And a little fun in our lives is healthy. Can't be serious 24/7/365 Why should we not be able to lighten up here?

Re: Questions For The Paint GURU?


Another question for Mr. Booger. This is a little off topic, but what the hey, eh? My wifey was talking on the phone tonight with her bro and I overheard her say WD40. I politely waited for her to finish her conversation, and then asked where the reference to WD40 came from. She told me that her brother who suffers from arthritis in his knees uses the widely known lubricant as a topical medicine for relief of symptoms! He told her that it penetrates to the joint and gives him up to two weeks of relief from pain and discomfort. Now have you ever heard of such a thing? If i didn't know better I would wonder what he had been smoking. Can this be?

Happy Painting, Paul.

prosthetics ... YES.

artheritis ... NO.

I think they are up to something unusual ... not that there's anything wrong with that.

Here is the urban myth buster link for wd40
