If you get shouted down in a public discussion, it's always a good idea to take a moment to reflect with brutal honesty: Have I been acting like a jerk? If the answer to that is "yes", then it doesn't matter how (in)valid your "uncomfortable truths" are; fix that first if you want to be listened to. If the answer is "no", then think about whether you're just wasting your time.

Then: You travel with a lot of cash because you can't count on the ATMs at your destination. Now: You travel with a lot of cache because you can't count on the in-flight WiFi and need to pre-download your movies.

Should I take home that junky table sitting beside the path if it means carrying it on my bike? Sure! I will schlep home that junky table on my bike. It's not even the biggest table I've brought home.

My kids are so devious. It's after bedtime, but instead of fighting as per usual, the older one is teaching the younger one math. They are totally daring me to interrupt it.

Q: My inkjet printer is making a loud screeching sound.
A: That is the sound of plastic gear teeth slipping. To fix it:

1. Open the ink access hatch.
2. Slide the print head to the middle of the printer.
3. Reach way back into the print chamber behind where the print head parks and pull out the original power cord.
4. Describe your house movers in terms of at least 3 animals and two forms of unlawful conduct as you reassemble the printer.
