    Fresh off "never touch a dialysis shunt" portion of your EMT book? Or maybe you heard another student's story during CPR class that started like this.. "one time my uncle's neighbor's friend came across a guy who was on dialysis..."? which prolonged class by 12 minutes so you missed snack break?

    Why are they Swedish? Shouldn't they be Canadian?

    If they were Canadian, they'd be called left handed thumb wrenches and wouldn't fuck up nuts. These ones do the latter, therefor they're Swedish.

    I have to change microwave under hood lighting every 6 months sooo I decided to change them to LED units.
    I love the light frequency as it mimics sunlight and should last at least 15 years.
    Problem is the wifey hates LEDs and wants the old filament light bulb light type.
    So, back to changing the damn bulbs again.

    Just get an LED bulb in a warm color to look like an incandescent. They also make LEDs that look like it has filaments in it

    Something like this:

    Just to drop some knowledge on ya, lights color is measured in temperature not frequency. The k after the value is for kelvin.

    Looking at my yard zoo. Pics are from last year as plants are just starting to think about life at home. But Ive got over a dozen animals so far. Deciding what I should add this summer. All made from Toyota bits. Couldn’t use anything else. Pretty sure what I will make is a cat on the roof. Ive got other cats Ive built. Just want one on the roof.
