    1# Tool you often loose :-(

    It never fails, while on any job site a tool alway gets lost.
    Which one of your tools goes MIA ... drill bit or Duct Knifes?

    None of my tools weigh 1 pound.
    "Right" is not the same as "Wise".

    Don't step on my favorite part of the Constitution just to point out your favorite part.

    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    The primary function of the design engineer is to make things difficult for the fabricator and impossible for the serviceman.

    My mind...
    Which somedays seems to be somewhere I cannot remember where I put it... LOL

    Seriously... ones ability to 'think through' something...
    Is IMO ones most valuable tool.

    I would have to say my smart phone is next...

    However I saw a cheaper version of the lights I was using at Ace hardware. Picked up three for the price of one of the old ones, figuring I'd surely lose them. Still got all three of the cheap bastids. Only have a magnet in the back, not the end as well, which I really miss.
    Is the Religious Right to blame for Christianity's decline?

    They argued that, as the Religious Right became increasingly visible and militant, it became associated with Christianity itself. And if being a Christian meant being associated with the likes of Jerry Falwell, many people—especially political moderates and liberals—decided to simply stop identifying as Christians altogether.

    Don't really lose many tools but I have been know to have to cut "inspection" holes in ductwork to retrieve some tools I left inside it.

    Don't really lose too many, either.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
