    Printed for my kids. They hand me duct tape any time I can't fix something within a few minutes. I told my 14 year old to use WD40 and he said "what's that?" They don't teach dick in the schools any more!

    You're right about that - at least not the practical stuff. I've been using WD-40 and Duct Tape for decades.

    SPACKLE ??? No, you can squish up a wad of Duct Tape to accomplish the same thing. SPACKLE, as the third "universal tool" has been replaced by the south-of-the-border (being PC here) wrench set.

    For all the years that I had rental properties, I found that 90% of tenant complaints could be "fixed" with a little spackle and a coat of paint.

    My favorite tool was the Vise Grip - now there was a tool that could do everything.

    Eyebrow tweezers, tampon string (unused, of course) & band-aids have saved the day for me.
