LPT: How To Keep A Trash Bag From Ballooning In The Bin

Ever notice how trash bags balloon up when you place them in the bin? Here’s an easy way to fix the problem!

TRANSCRIPT:

1
00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:01,680
Have you ever noticed how when you put a

2
00:00:01,680 –> 00:00:03,810
new bag in the trash bin, it does this

3
00:00:03,810 –> 00:00:06,690
annoying balloon thing and you have to go

4
00:00:06,690 –> 00:00:09,030
back and let the trapped air out and fix

5
00:00:09,030 –> 00:00:12,330
it all? Well next time you take out the

6
00:00:12,330 –> 00:00:15,299
trash, try this tip: grab your drill motor

7
00:00:15,299 –> 00:00:18,090
and use a half-inch twist bit to cut a

8
00:00:18,090 –> 00:00:20,490
series of holes along the bottom

9
00:00:20,490 –> 00:00:23,789
edge of one side of the bin. The holes

10
00:00:23,789 –> 00:00:26,670
will allow trapped air to escape when the

11
00:00:26,670 –> 00:00:29,070
bag fills, and prevent that annoying

12
00:00:29,070 –> 00:00:33,239
balloon effect. Don’t forget to like and share

AvE Shop Ruler Assembly and Review

I finally got my AvE shop ruler direct from the Empire of Dirt in Western Bring Cash Canuckistan! Here, I’ll take a few minutes to walk through the requisite soldering what for assembling and at the end of the vijayo I’ll giver a proper-type review!

TRANSCRIPT:

1
00:00:10,720 –> 00:00:24,430
If the women don’t find you handsome, they should at least find you handy!

2
00:00:24,430 –> 00:00:35,670
Aha! I think this is my ruler!

3
00:00:35,670 –> 00:00:43,739
Sealed in a mayonnaise jar underneath Funk

4
00:00:43,739 –> 00:00:47,309
and Wagnall’s front porch for the past 24 hours

5
00:00:47,309 –> 00:00:53,549
This is the ruler! Aha! It’s here!

6
00:00:53,549 –> 00:00:54,809
“Hello and thank you for picking up a ruler

7
00:00:54,809 –> 00:00:56,789
here’s a link to instruction on how to

8
00:00:56,789 –> 00:00:59,670
assemble your flashlight. In addition to

9
00:00:59,670 –> 00:01:02,640
bolt gauge, I want to add some info that didn’t

10
00:01:02,640 –> 00:01:05,880
fit on the ruler…

11
00:01:18,270 –> 00:01:20,640
so I’ve got all my parts here I’ve got

12
00:01:20,640 –> 00:01:26,009
ruler base battery compartment a little

13
00:01:26,009 –> 00:01:30,810
magnet this thing momentary switch and

14
00:01:30,810 –> 00:01:32,789
of course I’ve got my solder, my iron

15
00:01:32,789 –> 00:01:35,970
here I think I’m okay just I feel like

16
00:01:35,970 –> 00:01:40,289
there’s something missing something ah I

17
00:01:40,289 –> 00:01:45,300
know exactly

18
00:01:45,300 –> 00:01:50,270
it’s Saturday in Orange County

19
00:02:00,850 –> 00:02:18,410
make way for prince Ali

20
00:02:18,410 –> 00:02:25,040
okay so that’s better that’s much better so

21
00:02:25,040 –> 00:02:29,330
we’ve got all of our parts here

22
00:02:29,330 –> 00:02:32,510
and wait on the soldering iron to get hot

23
00:02:32,510 –> 00:02:44,000
there you go yeah all right so so first

24
00:02:44,000 –> 00:02:45,770
things first let’s do the tiniest component

25
00:02:45,770 –> 00:02:49,220
first this is our led in this nice

26
00:02:49,220 –> 00:02:52,190
little protective package here i can get

27
00:02:52,190 –> 00:02:53,720
it open this will be a small miracle

28
00:02:53,720 –> 00:03:01,840
there Oh open now see there

29
00:03:02,700 –> 00:03:07,530
nothing focus anyway so the little T a

30
00:03:11,099 –> 00:03:14,340
it’s essentially we want to say that

31
00:03:14,340 –> 00:03:16,230
we’re going to point it in the same

32
00:03:16,230 –> 00:03:18,750
direction as the little diode icon is

33
00:03:18,750 –> 00:03:20,190
pointing that’s how we’re going to line

34
00:03:20,190 –> 00:03:24,180
it up we’re going to take our little guy

35
00:03:40,010 –> 00:03:52,640
at least one side’s on there pretty good looks

36
00:03:52,640 –> 00:03:53,720
like it’s on there pretty good hopefully

37
00:03:53,720 –> 00:03:57,739
feel like it’s on there pretty good I’m

38
00:03:57,739 –> 00:04:00,440
twisting you’re looking all right that’s

39
00:04:00,440 –> 00:04:03,650
one down all right now let’s do the

40
00:04:03,650 –> 00:04:10,099
better let’s do the switch here all

41
00:04:10,099 –> 00:04:13,760
right just about make sure it’s good

42
00:04:13,760 –> 00:04:19,910
squared when you have too much caffeine

43
00:04:19,910 –> 00:04:22,699
in your system try to do some precision

44
00:04:22,699 –> 00:04:29,750
it’s got a little bit of shakes that’s

45
00:04:29,750 –> 00:04:45,379
really fine work

46
00:04:58,160 –> 00:05:00,500
looks like it’s on there pretty good all

47
00:05:00,500 –> 00:05:10,280
right then get our battery deal okay so

48
00:05:10,280 –> 00:05:19,099
battery assuming goes on like this go

49
00:05:19,099 –> 00:05:21,889
upside down I wouldn’t go upside down

50
00:05:21,889 –> 00:05:24,280
would it

51
00:05:31,120 –> 00:05:34,540
this little guy gets hot. why am i doing this without gloves?

52
00:05:34,540 –> 00:05:39,910
one thing’s for certain I gotta bend

53
00:05:39,910 –> 00:05:44,620
these guys back in place these little contact

54
00:05:44,620 –> 00:05:48,669
pads bent out of shape not sitting right

55
00:05:48,669 –> 00:05:53,020
break out the good stuff a little bit of

56
00:05:53,020 –> 00:06:00,520
this keep it yeah there you go big ol

57
00:06:00,520 –> 00:06:03,120
blob on there

58
00:06:12,700 –> 00:06:15,610
fantastic look how much faster that

59
00:06:15,610 –> 00:06:21,940
works that’s all we needed the right

60
00:06:21,940 –> 00:06:31,270
tool for the job okay there’s I just got

61
00:06:31,270 –> 00:06:33,160
to grab a glue gun and glue my magnet

62
00:06:33,160 –> 00:06:34,780
in place and I think we’re gonna be good

63
00:06:34,780 –> 00:06:37,810
hope we’re going to be good anyway I’m

64
00:06:37,810 –> 00:06:50,680
gonna find a battery

65
00:06:50,680 –> 00:07:00,190
easier said than done folks

66
00:07:00,330 –> 00:07:18,389
stay there all right here we go all

67
00:07:18,389 –> 00:07:20,550
right then we just gotta put a battery in her and

68
00:07:20,550 –> 00:07:23,699
see what happens okay so I ran down to

69
00:07:23,699 –> 00:07:25,169
the radio shack that’s going out of

70
00:07:25,169 –> 00:07:27,300
business and I grabbed a little button

71
00:07:27,300 –> 00:07:29,789
cell this is a twenty thirty two button cell

72
00:07:29,789 –> 00:07:32,699
so we will see what this thing does now

73
00:07:32,699 –> 00:07:36,569
right what’s that night and they’re just

74
00:07:36,569 –> 00:07:40,860
just so we’re working fun make sure

75
00:07:50,460 –> 00:07:57,120
works a little light going ok so this is

76
00:07:57,120 –> 00:07:58,770
the kind of a cool little thing so it’s

77
00:07:58,770 –> 00:08:01,439
great if you are new to soldering if

78
00:08:01,439 –> 00:08:04,229
you’re not great at soldering and I’m

79
00:08:04,229 –> 00:08:07,979
not a master of it so so it’s great if

80
00:08:07,979 –> 00:08:10,409
you’re not if you need practice at

81
00:08:10,409 –> 00:08:13,680
soldering this is a great little cheapo

82
00:08:13,680 –> 00:08:16,259
fun little thing to do especially

83
00:08:16,259 –> 00:08:17,759
with the surface mount components cuz

84
00:08:17,759 –> 00:08:20,660
that’s a base again those are hard

85
00:08:20,660 –> 00:08:24,320
anyway so there you go you’ve got got

86
00:08:24,320 –> 00:08:26,600
your PCB material and a little fun

87
00:08:26,600 –> 00:08:30,350
little printing things on here so the

88
00:08:30,350 –> 00:08:34,610
millimeter scale let’s just go ahead and

89
00:08:34,610 –> 00:08:38,150
check to accuracy here not that I doubt

90
00:08:38,150 –> 00:08:45,020
but now this is of course my

91
00:08:45,020 –> 00:08:47,720
horror fright harbor freight

92
00:08:47,720 –> 00:08:50,720
caliper here digital calipers I mean

93
00:08:50,720 –> 00:08:53,150
it’s not a hundred percent accurate so

94
00:08:53,150 –> 00:08:54,920
it’s going to get a pretty darn close

95
00:08:54,920 –> 00:09:07,190
151 10 meters right there that is right

96
00:09:07,190 –> 00:09:09,850
on the line

97
00:09:09,850 –> 00:09:13,329
15 centimeter so pretty darn accurate

98
00:09:13,329 –> 00:09:16,600
there good job and then on the back we

99
00:09:16,600 –> 00:09:23,139
have inches here in 16 we have inches

100
00:09:23,139 –> 00:09:25,540
again in 32 so we’ve got both

101
00:09:25,540 –> 00:09:27,430
scales there and of course you got your

102
00:09:27,430 –> 00:09:29,319
bolt hole scales which you can

103
00:09:29,319 –> 00:09:33,339
cross-reference with the tables that he

104
00:09:33,339 –> 00:09:36,910
was so kind to send along and we have

105
00:09:36,910 –> 00:09:39,699
our gap width in thousands and see what

106
00:09:39,699 –> 00:09:47,079
we got here inches we’re going to go

107
00:09:47,079 –> 00:09:50,500
down hundreds on the so I guess that’s

108
00:09:50,500 –> 00:09:53,259
kind of weird but I low multiples of 10

109
00:09:53,259 –> 00:09:56,829
I can be more free time 10,000 would be

110
00:09:56,829 –> 00:10:03,480
point one in so it’s pretty accurate

111
00:10:03,480 –> 00:10:09,930
we can do 30 let’s get 33 inch and looks

112
00:10:09,930 –> 00:10:16,889
pretty accurate and 44 in people pretty

113
00:10:16,889 –> 00:10:19,470
accurate there and then on the side of

114
00:10:19,470 –> 00:10:21,600
course we have the more vernacular

115
00:10:21,600 –> 00:10:24,960
measurements here

116
00:10:24,960 –> 00:10:28,470
mediterranean and from experience i can

117
00:10:28,470 –> 00:10:32,550
know you that yes these are accurate hey

118
00:10:32,550 –> 00:10:34,170
and then of course there’s a little

119
00:10:34,170 –> 00:10:40,110
magnet here there it is yeah pretty

120
00:10:40,110 –> 00:10:45,060
strong neodymium magnet there so that’s

121
00:10:45,060 –> 00:10:49,110
really it that is AvE’s shop ruler

122
00:10:49,110 –> 00:10:51,870
version 1 point 0 and the fun little toy

123
00:10:51,870 –> 00:10:53,670
and it’s something I’m definitely going

124
00:10:53,670 –> 00:10:57,450
to keep on my desk and so that’s a

125
00:10:57,450 –> 00:11:00,570
that’s pretty much it you know go and

126
00:11:00,570 –> 00:11:03,210
pick one up and for his channel and if

The Many Deaths of Barney the Dinosaur: Barnusaf

I found these floating around AOL back in in the mid-1990s, perfect entertainment for a 12-year-old with a chip on his shoulder! If anyone can help me track down the original creator, please let me know!

The US Air Force drops a MOAB on Barney!

NASCAR Commercials (circa 1989-1992)

Remember back when no one wanted the broadcast rights to NASCAR, so Turner took a chance and ran wild with them?

How about back when the only people who knew what NASCAR was were walking out of a screening of “Days of Thunder”? Those were the days!

Income Tax Evasion

Interviewing defendants accused of income tax evasion.

A novelty piece in the old “break-in” style pioneered by Dickie Goodman and Bill Buchanan where song clips replace soundbytes from interviews or dialogue.I downloaded this from AOL in the mid-1990’s, and I don’t recall who uploaded it originally.If you or someone you know created this, please let me know so that I may give proper credit.Thanks!

The IRS is hiring!

Quite possibly the best advertisement(s) for a government job ever conceived.

Chuck Berry 1926-2017

Say what you will about his personal life, Chuck Berry was an absolute genius that literally defined rock (and roll), taking simplistic blues riffs and “hunka-hunka” lyrics co-opted by his predecessors and driving them into complex melodies driven by his mastery of the new technology of the time: the solid body electric guitar. Berry’s musicianship (and brash showmanship) took the guitar, once relegated to the rhythm section of an ensemble, and brought it to the front with dedicated solos and new playing techniques that would become the basis for popular music into the next century.

Naturally, Berry would be among the inaugural class of inductees at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame because without him and the musicians he inspired (including a couple of scousers from Liverpool), the latter half of the twentieth century could have played out remarkably different!

Perhaps it isn’t the best Chuck Berry performance, but his reaction to Yoko Ono’s unintelligible screeching makes this reunion with his friend and protege John Lennon makes this one of my favorite performances!

Let’s not forget, though, the song that he is–literally–immortalized for what might be forever in interstellar space on the Voyager space probe’s Golden Record:

Go, Johnny, go!
