@TGP Was there a question for June 28? (I would completely believe that I missed it through personal blindness.)

There is, it's the hammer one.  They accidentally labeled it the 27th :)

Why would you want to build a house without breaking zombie skulls?

:ik_oops:

 

 

sometimes the zombies show up after you finish the house.

I have 6.  Three Claw (Mine, my dad's and my mom's), a ball peen, Engineer (small one handed sledge) and a sledge hammer.

 

Summers in college I worked in a Gas Station to earn money.  The first one I worked at had two Master Mechanics.  Each one had a different philosophy on tools.

 

1. "If a hammer does not work, get a bigger hammer."

2. " If a screw driver does not work, get a bigger screwdriver."

I worked in residential construction and was trained in hammer framing.  - if it does not fit, apply hammer. 

I now approach home repairs the same way.   I have never regretted giving something a few taps with a hammer - worse case scenario, it was broke when I started. 

now if it is delicate (computers, children) and won't respond to my non-hammer methods I turn it over to the wife instead.

June 28 Implied Bonus Question: If you have seen, did you enjoy, Groundhog Day the movie (with Bill Murray)?

Edited by TGP
But yes, due to confoozulation not entirely under a certain Griffin’s control we’ve doubled down on Wednesday. As is tradition: I blame Buglips.

Many moons ago on local TV, when it was still recent. Child me seemed to like it.

I saw Groundhog Day, but much preferred its predecessor, the short film 12:01 PM, with Kurtwood Smith.

Kurtwood Smith is freakin' AMAZING when you let him act.

June 27: What is a technique would you like to teach to other people?

 

Not so much a technique, but impart upon.  Empathy for others.  This has been a disgustingly difficult week for me.

June 27: How many hammers do you own?

 

19.  5 Sledgehammers (2.5 pound, 5 pound, 8 pound, 10 pound, and 20 pound), 5 claw hammers (1 10 ounce, 3 12 ounce, and 1 18 ounce), 5 different jewelers hammers, 2 tiny ("ball peen" is a good description, but I use them for welding), and a metal and a wooden meat tenderizing mallet.  This does not include anything in miniature format.  Counting that, it's probaby in the hundreds.  I like dwarves. 

 

I also have an axe-hammer, which I do not count as it is not purely a hammer.

I can't believe how excited this question has me.  I love tools. :wub:

 

I have many tools.  I don't blame you on that one.  One thing about doing jewelry-work, you will find tools from other professions that work exceedingly well with what you do.  The number of times I used something for not an "intended purpose" has flustered my father (a mechanic/maintenance worker) to no end.

Very much. Though I might have liked it better with a different lead than Bill Murray. The story was stronger than the acting, IMO.

Fair enough. I'll file that under alternate blindness.

I suppose I asked for this, so I should answer it:

 

I have.

I did.

 Yes to both part of the question, which was a pleasant surprise as I usually find Mr Murray a bit irritating and wouldn't cross the road for Ms MacDowell.

Friday’s Question will be one inspired by Xiwo Xerase. (I just have to wait a bit so it does not combine the posts.)

June 29: What is the most disastrous thing you've tried when painting miniatures?

 

And, June 30: Do you have pictures?

      The year is halfway over! What do you want to achieve this month?
       
      Here's my list:
       
      - Get blog going again.
      - Finish editing photos from last November >.<
      - Paint Bones Sphinx (by August 4).
      - Figure out how many other projects I have to do (that aren't already on the table) and give them time lines.
      - Figure out a giveaway for 1000 followers on IG.

      The obligatory rulze posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and take my place... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
       
      I'm going to go walk the dogs, and then post the first question of the month...

      Huh usually I put one of these up sooner than this. Just been busy I guess.
      Who's all going?
      How did you fair in the hotel lottery?
       
       So Sunday was event registration.
      Did you get into the events you wanted?
       
      My group did fairly well at the hotel thing this year even though we had to split the group this year. both hotels are fairly close.
      I got into most of the events I wanted. had some issues with the priority system preventing me from getting into events because it conflicted with another event that I would only be going to if I hadn't gotten into an earlier time. Yet some how it did allow me to sign up for 2 Speed paints that conflicted with other events that I got into. (and I only realized one before paying)
      Also I just a bit ago remembered that I wanted to do a Frostgrave event but they are all sold out already.

      We're still going strong! Incredible. It's been a bit, so poke me if I ask a duplicate. I've missed y'all.

      The obligatory rules posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. If I fail to post a question, Inara (possibly) will post a question of her own choice.
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
