JUST FOR FUN
Something to think about while the glue dries...
(Quotes, thoughts and funny sayings collected from the all over the internet, and from the mind of Stumpy Nubs)
Glad I read the label on that Clorox. I was about to rub it in my eyes and keep it in the reach of so many children.
Don't glare at me lady! You're the one who named your kid Marco then yelled his name in the store!
Had no idea why my salad was $175, 'til the waiter explained that they only use Beets by Dre.
I hesitate to make fun of "Canadian bacon," because I know they'll eventually play the "American cheese" card.
Just found my birth certificate. Ugh, it's official: I've gained weight.
I just watched a show about burritos spinning in a circle because my television's broken and my microwave's not.
Stole my neighbors family portrait & got it tattooed on my back. Now I'm standing in their living room facing the wall 2 see if they notice.
I'm sorry, everyone who wrote stay cool in my yearbooks

Homemade Job-site Table Saw
Up and coming YouTube jig maker, Cosmas Bauer needed another table saw. So he did what any good jig maker does. He made one. And he did it without using a table saw. Now, before you say "this has been done before," consider that Bauer's saw includes cleverly engineered wooden trunions so it tilts without losing blade height, just like a commercially made saw. And did I mention the saw is lightweight and portable?
