Things you wish you knew more about
« on: April 21, 2004, 10:01 AM »
I'm a car idiot.  I can put gas in and check the oil, fill the washer fluid and check the air in the tires.  That's about it.  I know how an engine works in theory but couldn't for the life of me tell you what the parts are...where the transmission is located etc.  I wish I did know more about cars...at least so I could change my own oil :-[

I'm right up there with you.

I'd like to know more about different art techniques. Also old printing and stuff like that - that technology has made extinct.

I guess this is more fantasy than reality (since it'll never happen), but I wish I knew more about how women think. Sometimes, I have absolutely no clue as to what my wife is thinking or why she did certain things or is strangely happy/sad/angry/whatever about the smallest things. Sure might make life a bit easier to at least have a hint.

There's no guessing to it.  :-*

Women was the all too obvious answer to this one I guess, one of life's great mysteries...what Gregg looked like, the true identity of "Lady" Jaye and who built the monuments on Easter Island

the true identity of "Lady" Jaye

Since I may be the one who started the whole "Lady" Jaye craze, I will admit that I now believe that Lady Jaye is too intellectually-challenged to pull off the whole "guy posting as girl" thing. . .

And from the image I've gotten in my head of her, I most definitely wouldn't ever want to meet her in person to find out for sure. . .

Home remodeling, my wife has been ragging on me to fix up our garage and remodel a bedroom.  I have no idea how to do any of that stuff.  Like woodwork, sheetrock, electricity, scares me

Well, it's not something I really don't know how to do, but rather don't have the talent to do it.  I wish I had some artistic abilities so I could customize some of my figure's.  I know the proper ways to do it, but I lack the necessary skills.

I wish I knew more about:  how to get my own business started on the amount of money I have.  I guess, I will have to wait a bit longer on the project.

My second thing would be cars.  I know the basics, that's it.

Home Repair. My Dad knows everything about fixing anything and I wish that that gene had been passed down to me.

Recently, I had a leak in my house, and had to call roto rooter. They came and chopped a hole in a wall we just painted only to find that the pipe wasn't a problem.

My Dad comes over to visit and figures out it's the tile, and does so in the span of about 20 minutes. Then he tells me we can fix what I thought was going to be a four or five thousand dollar problem for less than 100 bucks including the tile.

He also seems to know how to fix everything else that I don't. It's cool, but quite annoying that something seemingly so simple is so hard for me to figure out.

Luckily....I have the one skill I can always help him with: Computers.
