Hi,

I recently retired and have become interested in science, I can answer all sorts questions on stacking shelves, selling kitchens, microwave ovens etc so go ahead and ask!

You are only smart if you are surrounded by fools, so have a bit more patience for those of us that are complete idiots!

I like this place, if they don't ban me I'll stay here.

Hi Fortran, and welcome to TNS! I hope that you are able to share your domestic culinary knowledge on the site!

Good evening and welcome  [:)]

We had a good thread (well, depends on your definition of good) about microwave cooking not so long ago, so your expertise may well come in useful!

Hmmm...

As I said I sold kitchens, (also appliances) I am no cook though!

Don't make me laugh, I am sitting here with both legs severely bandaged from my feet to my thighs.

No,  I just followed the instructions on a tinned pudding it said  "Pierce lid and stand in boiling water for 20 minutes".

When my computer was delivered, my wife asked me why I was running around on the packaging. Well, it did say "Tear along the dotted line".

Coronal mass ejections? That is what happens to a tray of punch cards when you knock it off the "in" shelf with your head, right?

I bid you all warm greetings for I have come.  (Are you warm yet?) :)
I like Fortran am new, and like Make It Lady said, are mad.  I hope I fit in here, so that is why I send my greetings to you all.

I will answer questions to the best of my knowledge and pester you all with some of my own... later though, I have work to do first... sigh.

Well, see you lot around then.

 Me too!
I swear, if procrastinating was an olympic sport I'd do very well in it.  eg.  My biology assignment is due tomorrow, and that's including the extension I got.  :)

I don't think she'll believe me.

I remember in primary school someone actually said that.  The teacher didn't believe him.  Surprise surprise.  Turned out they were telling the truth.  funny.
