I personally think some of you guys are way too serious about this stuff. I personally got a big chuckle reading some of these reponses...thanks for the laughs

Thanks lorn.

The negitivity people can take this thread and sew a button over their lips.

I enjoy an informative debate, but it's hard to debate the topic of whether I'm an idiot or not.

As soon as you think you know everything, you stop learning, and soon you realize you know nothing.

artheritis ... NO
Sounds strange, but I will withhold judgement on that. The article stated some unintended uses may work but are not recommended by the manufacturer. I heard years ago that airplane mechanics discovered it helped them with arthritic hands. Don't know from personal experience.

Cool your jets.

I'm not convinced you're the GURU yet.


Only time will tell.


By the way, you're doing a fine job!

Pretty BIG shoes to fill though.

Don't you agree???????

I'm actualy flattered, because you only get critics and hate mail when you've gained respect and notoriety.

Back to fun and games ...

The WD40 thing ... I'll bet there are plenty of other uses that haven't even been tried yet.

I looked at my 5-in-1 one day, and changed it's name to a 27-in-1. I stopped at 27. I'll bet there are more.

Tom:

The size of the shoe is never important. The road traveled in those shoes will show you who you really are. Each step forward shows progress. Each step to the side shows compromise. Each step backward shows lack of commitment.

I wear size 10 double wide steel toed tan Dickies boots, and they are full of paint.

LOL. Well paint guru you are getting closer to the million posts i see.
I too enjoy this thread and do not understand why Jethroe is so pissed at you. I suggest you challenge him to a painting duel to the death.

I figure that subject has been covered, and if I drop it and roll on ... he'll cut it out.

Sir Paint Booger:
I also have been apinting for many years on a smaller scale in less populated areas. The one thing I can't figure out is: if you paint a hunting cabin in the forrest can you hear the paint dry?

"If love is blind, why do they make Lingerie?"


It's a sales gimic, brother.
If you go to a job interview, or do an estimate for a new client, you're going to clean yourself up, and wear your better clothes.
Eventualy they realize you aren't that stud at the first meeting, but you do damn good work ... so they keep you.

It's also a self confidence booster.
For all you know, they would have hired you if you walked in with "Racoon Face" from a spray job.
Just like Billy Crystal used to say ... "It's better to look good than to feel good. And my darling ... you look mahhhvelous!"
"Women need a reason to have sex. Men just need a place."
(Also Billy Crystal)
If they feel sexy ... that might be reason enough.

Also, in a recent study by researchers at Rutgers University (published in Health Psychology), a person’s appearance, as judged by others, was found to be a good barometer of their overall state of health.
Women do live longer than men.
Perhaps they know something we don't about fancy underware.

"... if you paint a hunting cabin in the forrest can you hear the paint dry?"

If you use enough Jap Drier ... it will dry so fast that you can hear it for miles.

If you want to keep the noise from the paint drying down to an inaudible level ... use flotrol or penetrol. The paint will dry at a level that can not be heard by human ears.

I thought the reason for that was discovered - Most men are married to women.

Now does that mean that gay men live longer than lesbian women ???

It depends on which partner wears the pants, and which one wears the lingerie.

Back to the WD40, I thought that petroleum based products were carcinogens (spelling) I guess you have to decide what pain you want to die from?

Re: Questions For The Paint GURU?


BMAN,

Very good point. I would advise against prolonged skin contact. Here is the hyperlink to WD40's MSDS Report >>

http://www.wd40.com/Brands/pdfs/msds-wd40_bulk.us.pdf

"Prolonged and/or repeated contact may produce mild irritation and defatting with possible dermatitis."

PAUL R ... I would tell your brother in law to quit the wd40 shenanigans.

Re: Questions For The Paint GURU?


Well...

It took me a number of years to learn that I didn't know ANYTHING about paint. I can remember the old days when I used to think of myself as some kind of expert... ha ha... It's so funny...

In general, anyone who calls themself a guru is probably not. I guess you all knew that though... lol... There is at least some humor value to this post...

Wolvie (who knows about 1% of anything about paint)
