  • Stupid Saying

    I am sure we have all heard the expression "New and Improved"

    Well, which is it?

    If it's new than it cant be improved because it hasnt existed before.
    And if it's improved it cant be new, to improve something would mean that it was something before, but now its better, hence the word improved!

    I love it when people say this when your looking for something.

    "It's alway's the last place you look"

    Well no crap, you dont keep looking for something after you have found it!

    Or there is the all time favorite.

    "Life is so short"

    Really, it's the longest thing anyone of us will ever do!!! What will any of us do that is longer than life?

    Just something's I thought I would share with the group, hope you enjoyed!

      Hehe,

      Good one Kevin, but not unless you die pretty young.

      And also because I asked to be incinerated after they harvest whatever someone else can use.

        I am particularly impatient with the term "PIN Number", which translates into Personal Identification Number Number, and "ATM Machine", which is, of course, Automated Teller Machine Machine.
        New or improved? Just doesn't have the same ring, does it?

          Ummm, errr, have you seen how long mummies have been hangin' out. Lot longer than being alive, hehehe.

            Hey Kevin,

            True about the mummys, but that is a special nasty process.

            Involves scooping out the brain and other nasty stuff and then a special drying process. Not your average 'finish' job.

            I was reffering to normal stinking decomp. Mind you, that's nasty too when you think about it

            And what about : Parents telling their kids "Save it for tomorow". My mom used to say that; my boss calls it procrastination... Sheesh, go figure!

              New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

              It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

              Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

              I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
              on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
