    Feeling very pleased... The power button on Puffette's iPhone had failed. We had an identical phone with a broken digitizer, so I ordered the teeny-tiny 5-lobed screwdriver necessary to open the phone, disassembled both, swapped the power button assemblies, and re-assembled. Results, 1 completely functional, repaired, phone!!

    Bonus: I now know how to replace the battery, too :)

    So I called Discover to try and get my APR lowered, they offered to either drop my apr by 3 points (22% to 19% gag) or give me a credit for $50 off my next purchase of up to $200.

    O_O Are there really people out there stupid enough to take the rebate?*
    I thought having good credit meant lower %, apparently not, stupid me for paying well above the minimum....

    Check out kredit karma. It can help you find a card with a low apr that you can transfer your balances to. Everytime your arp goes up, transfer. Rinse and repeat until debt is paid. You can also keep track of your spending, and keep an eye on your credit scores.

    I already track that, my credit is pretty good, I only have the one card with a balance and my auto loan. So in the banks eyes I'm too fucking responsible and won't make them any money, boo hoo.

    I don't want to keep opening new accounts, as attractive an idea as that is.

    At Lowe's they have a flush valve replacement kit that has an auto shutoff for leaky flapper. As long as you're in there anyway, may be a more long term fix. I think the company name is korky.

    Silly question, is the water level adjusted properly? I've seen more than one set to where it fills above the overflow tube and keeps running.

    A cracked overflow tube will make it run a lot, too.

    It's my opinion that animals should never be given foods with sugar in them. Animals can't brush their teeth and sugar is the leading cause of tooth decay.

    probably. you also have to factor in the quadrapedal adaptations involving lesser bone densities from dispersed center of gravity and the factor of higher specialisation in form factors to artificial selection during domestication, and remember for every microbial issue we see is as specialised as human biological progression, and that the animals tend to respond to nature with similar force to our extremely potent metabolisms that likely have way more sensitivity than is needed for survival.

    sugar is probably more dangerous to their organs more than teeth because of mammalian-rat gene bottlenecks, as they get orders of magnitude less fluoride that would increase chemical pressure in microbial burrowing through natural calcium structures driven and maintained by healthy stem cell allocations.
