What did you learn today?
« on: January 26, 2014, 05:40:43 PM »
They say you learn something new every day, so what did you learn today?

I learnt there is a tool called a battery terminal and post cleaner and it works well.

We have those at work. And yes they do work quite well.
Using them in combo with some of the terminal cleaner (in a can) then some protector over the top.
=Nice clean terminals.

I found out my fat arse dont fit in a truck tube like it used to. Went for a float down the murray with the kids and they found my tipping over and plumbers crack most amusing.

Don't bother to read the papers if stories about stupid, bigotted &/or otherwise deficient people makes you want to "educate" them.  The papers are full of that stuff.
