These are not the droids your looking for.

You can't suck liquid out of a straw if you're higher than 13 feet (with a 13' straw) because earth's atmosphere isn't heavy enough (atmospheric pressure) to push it past that height.

^^Winner

13 ft above what? Sorry, sometimes my brain gets kinks in it, and doesn't perceive the obvious.

@Condor5 I'll say the ground but it may be sea level. The atmospheric pressure pushes the liquid into X when you suck the air out of the straw. But it won't work beyond 13 feet up with a 13' straw.

@KevinMR wow! I did not know that.

What if you're in Death Valley?

@stinkeye_a hmmmm, I challenge that one, depends a bit on air pressure at the spot, sea level normally about 34 feet.

@LEPeff Good question.

@Condor5 Saw it on a science show once. They actually put someone on a second floor balcony to prove it.

don't whiz on the electric fence...

All of the lyrics to the Gilligan's Island theme song.

In D&D 5e, a Half-orc rouge can do 5x damage on a critical hit, making it the most damaging character class.

My girlfriend wore half-orc rouge once. It left a nasty rash.

So 5% of the time.

Would you like to start to knit, or crochet, or sew? Would you like to make some lip balm, or soap. Soap is fun, you get to play with lye. Do you want to make a quilt? I promise if I get you hooked on quilting you will not thank me, but you also will love it. I can spend hours in fabric stores and planning. And then cutting, and sewing and pressing, and cutting and sewing and pressing again. And sewing and pressing, and sewing and pressing again.

I want to hang out @your house. You should teach classes. 🙂

I could cook for the social after the classs!

That, despite all that you see, there are still a few good people on the planet.

there are dangerous trees in Allen park. LOL

@Redcupcoffee the norway maples.

I could teach you about the history of the original Kenner Star Wars action figures... Not sure why you would want to learn that, but yeah... 🙂

@Redcupcoffee I mean, if you're ever at a yard sale and you come across a box of old Star Wars figures... lol Actually, if that happens, buy them all then hit me up... 😉

@Redcupcoffee Actually, hit me up BEFORE you buy them...

@Redcupcoffee Because I'm always looking for vintage Star Wars figures. So if you should ever see old Star Wars figures, I'd be willing to pay you for them if there's something I need... But that's why I say hit me up first... I wouldn't want you to buy anything I don't need...

That even when everything sucks you can still be happy.

Even without weed.

Buckeyes are useless nuts.

Unfortunately, so are mine.

Remove the words I can't from your vocabulary.

If someone doesn't like you for who you are. You better off without them.

The Spitfire was impaired in negative G maneuvers due to its gravity fed carburetor.

Don't cut your grass in the hottest part of the day.

@Redcupcoffee It burns the grass.

You will over heat. I almost passed out.

Never smell fingers after scratching bum !!

i could give you a 4 hour lecture on the history and relevance of the grateful dead

@Redcupcoffee ok, make it a 5 hour lecture then!

@Redcupcoffee this was their biggest "hit" 22 years into their history.

It's a very bad idea to walk through your living room in the dark if you happen to have an anvil there.

Because I don't have a garage... 🙂

Black wire to black wire white to white, unless the white is painted black, then it's hot

That there are 39.37 inches in a meter (or metre, if you prefer).

@Redcupcoffee my pleasure.

I could teach you to make a cross-stitch pillow...

@Redcupcoffee Thanks! I made it for my youngest son... He was having trouble dealing with only getting to see Dad every other weekend so I made this for him to cuddle with when he missed me...

Love is the only thing that matters. True, unconditional love of self.

Thanks. It's only through a LOT of introspection, self-discovery, and experiencing unconditional love from another that I came to that place.

“If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you're mis-informed.” ? Mark Twain

If Twain were alive today, he might say, "If you don't listen to network news, you're uninformed. if you listen to network news, you're mis-informed."

However, today we have alternative news, including Al Jazeera, TYT on youtube, Jimmy Dore on youtube, PBS, BBC, and others especially if you speak a language other than English. Now we can be uninformed, mis-informed, or confused.

That you can spend a wonderful evening with friends, enjoy the fire, the wine, life, company, love, and call it a perfectly fulfilling day, without having to learn anything.
