I did think it was somewhat out of character.

Is it out of character? Derek is piling on the weight so that he can fairly add “daddy” to the end of “hung top” on his Grindr headline.

To be more handy around the house and to be able to work power tools and just be more handy overall around the house. I want to be able to build something if I want it for the garden, or repair my own car if I know what's wrong with it and it doesn't require a lift...just random tasks around the house. For instance, I bought a 10ft long piece of rebar and then realized I had no way of cutting it. Recently, I bought an angle grinder, so I'll never have an issue with that again. I also bought a new ceiling fan 2 weeks ago. It's sitting in my bedroom. I'm going to make myself install that myself instead of paying someone else to do it or have a relative do it.

Ideally, I'd love to learn carpentry, the trade of my savior...lol jk but I do really want to learn carpentry. There's actually a tool library in Baltimore which has classes.

You've still yet to prove your hung credentials.

Hell, your fat daddy status could be hot air too.

Now if you could furnish us with some evidence...

I have to ask, for what purpose did you buy the rebar? I can't help but picture you with a length if rebar solely for the purpose of cutting it in a manly fashion. :lol:

But I get what you mean. It's nice knowing you can do for yourself.

I personally replaced a starter motor on my most recent car, with the assistance of a youtube video guide mind you, a mechanic I am not. It felt great to accomplish something I hadn't even contemplated ever doing before. Now admittedly, the onboard remote braking computer died too and I couldn't fix that, so my efforts proved to be in vain (the car has now been scrapped) beyond the experience of doing it. But I'd still say it was worth it for that.

None that I'm aware of. :D

Shawn and Brenden replaced a ceiling fan together a while back. Apparently it was a tricky and annoying process even with two people. :noes:

They also opened up a ceiling, diagnosed and fixed the leak above it and closed it up again, and replaced a car battery once or twice. :runaway: :D

Ceiling fans are tricky.

Did they have to plaster the ceiling after fixing that leak? I tried my hand at plastering and all I can say, is that it's an art form. How people get straight smooth walls is beyond me. I swear my one attempt left me with a wall that wasn't a million miles away from looking like a recreation of the welsh valleys. The more I tried to "fix" it, the worse it got. :runaway:

No, it was drywall, so we cut a new piece and patched it with a kind of fabric mesh tape and a drywall mud stuff scrapped into the gaps, which I suppose was a bit like plaster.

The rebar was for this specific type of tomato that's known to be a beast and I wanted to see how I tall I could grow it single vine style! Now that I've grown it, I don't really need a 10ft long rebar lol.

Oh man! I'm getting nervous! The electrical part shouldn't be too hard because I'm not connecting it to wall switch or anything. It's just a straight replace from the same manufacturer too. I'm hoping they still use the same harness so I can use the old one. I've watched a bunch of videos. I'm just stalling at this point haha.
