I also did not know there was a third size. Must be communist 6mm???
Ya that's what I said. Small to big but no big to small. The whole bit size thing a freckin conspiracy. They KNOW we are going to buy the wrong crap.. and they know we won't take it back either. I got 4 of these bits and couldn't wait to get home and use them... and they carved out the lamest trim ever known to man. Like rent house trim at best. I was highly disappointed. And by bought I mean traded some random person something for them so no sample picture was avail

They were new when I got them. I'm not afraid to take advantage of those crackhead opportunities. Every now and then you'll run across some killer buys.

I've never seen a Popeyes, but my helper says there's one in Etobicoke. I don't know if it's worth the 4 hour drive

Bought it super cheap at the bottom of the market. Already have $150,000 in equity. Can't believe what people are willing to pay in the Bay Area.

If the plans call for a 24" layout that has nothing to do with the guy building the house. Over here we have homes that are 70 years old with no studs in them. and they are doing fine. Back then only the uber nice homes got studs.

Re: Things I Hate


Carrot juice...yes. Is it OK...It's not as bad as eggs, or pineapple juice. But chocolate milk is way better. If it's deepfried and not just totally salty and greasy, then I bet that Popeyes is better too
