You won’t regret this.
Delete all Google apps as well and don’t use their search engine or anything with the name.

You’ll be amazed at the drop in spam, telemarketing calls, and garbage in general.
Same.

Google / Alphabet didn't need to delete their mission statement - ' Don't Be Evil' they just needed to remove one word - 'Be Evil'

Elon Musk's babymomma practices with the sword for two hours a day. That could be fun.
Stan's a ninja. The time he spends practicing with his swords counts as work, not spare time.

I brought 4 big bricks of it home with me from PA. I'm about to heat up the cast iron and fry up a few slabs with some eggs.

Where do you stand on hogs head cheese?
Headcheese is a favourite of mine. Either with vinegar or ripple chips and mustard

The axe head on my year old Collins axe is loose. Dunno if that should go here or the TTCMA thread. I've never had to even sharpen that axe and usually splits a log on the first blow. I keep it stored in my garage and never left outside. This kinda burns me a bit, that thing was expensive!

This is just part of having an axe with a wooden handle. You can fix it with wedges.

Company across the street is putting up a new complex on adjacent land. Today there were using a huge crane, lifting up pre-poured concrete walls that were probably 40ft high. A coworker and I agree that the guy operating that crane must be paid a hefty sum because of the skill at which he is displaying.

Work fascinates me, I could sit and watch it all day...

Drive a half-dozen wood screws in around the perimeter between the edge of the handle and the axehole.

Contrary to what one would think, a few screws in the axehole will tighten 'er up.
