So now you look like you have a drinking problem?Today while mowing my dad's grass, I saw a Virginia creeper vine growing on the side of his house. I decided to pull it off the house, but failed to see a group of wasps building a nest on said vine. This resulted in me getting stung by a red wasp, on my nose.
It's been about 6 hours since the sting occurred and by face is still slightly swollen and it's difficult to breath through my nose from the swelling.
I have learned a lesson today...
Many years ago, I was riding a road bike (as in: bicycle) and wearing a collarless shirt. A red wasp flew down the back of said shirt.This resulted in me getting stung by a red wasp, on my nose.

Especially if something is living on it.Don't yank somebody's vine?
Less Jimmy Durante, more mild elephant man.So now you look like you have a drinking problem?
Ouch, number 2 doesn't sound pleasant. Luckily this one only got me once. I did have a bee fly into a vent on my helmet while mountain biking earlier this year. Before I could get the helmet off the bastard stung more forehead.Many years ago, I was riding a road bike (as in: bicycle) and wearing a collarless shirt. A red wasp flew down the back of said shirt.
I learned two things that day:
1. Watch out for bees when riding a bicycle and
2. Red wasps can sting multiple times - and each sting is just as painful as the one before it!
Almost anytime I have an instrument cluster apart I end up breaking something on it. I should probably just leave them to the professionals.And now, for my latest screw-up:
I've been working - off-and-on lately - on my MK II Jetta GLI.
One of its problems was that the headlight dimmer in the multi-switch stopped working, so I ordered a new one.
Since I had the steering wheel off to replace that part, I decided that I might as well pull the instrument cluster and send the speedometer off to Rick at Overseas Speedometer in Austin because the trip odometer wouldn't reset or rotate properly. I have a spare speedometer assembly which I've used before, so I thought I'd just pop that in and use it until my speedometer came back from Texas.
Being late July and Ohio, it was hot and humid; my hands were sweaty and I was attempting to put the speedo/tach 'cassette' back into the surround when it slipped and dropped all of 2 inches onto the workbench. The tach popped out of the assembly and landed face-down on the bench, breaking off the needle. I immediately called Rick and he assured me that he had the proper needle in stock and to just re-assemble the unit and ship it to him. After making sure my hands were dry, I put the assembly back together and started packing it - and accidentally pressed the trip reset. You guessed it - the drop onto the workbench jogged whatever was stuck back into position. :?
In any case, the assembly is back in Ohio and all I have to do is re-install it. And, it's been completely cleaned and lubricated and has a shiny new tach needle. But... Rick certainly had a good laugh at my expense!
2 - When I decided to put the KFP3 Bluray on the shelve yesterday, I realized that we actually already had a copy, so now I have duplicates of both KFP1 and KFP3Just realized I ordered the wrong Blu-ray movie earlier this week, Kung Fu Panda (which I already own on DVD) instead of Kung Fu Panda 3, but the shipping fee to return it would be 65% of the purchase price (10$), so might as well keep it.
Telenet here, not that they are that much less crap but things do keep working if the phone is unplugged (except the phone).....friend of mine has an 'unstable' phone connection, Belgacom, 3 tv's playing in her pub AND she's a technofobe....good times that, good times.Yes, but I do believe unplugging the phone breaks the connection in most cases. So still mostly me being stupid
