Fun article I just read. Thought I'd share!

Hehe. nice read... personally, after four years of taking philosophy in college all I want to do is play music, grow vegetables, learn electronics, brew beer, build my own speakers, and circuit bend little toys.
All beer is essentially the same, it is all fermented piss colored water!

I completely understand this.... wow. Great read. I sometimes feel sorry for people that "can't do" even though they really can. I couldn't get through my day without a project on my mind or making at least one thing better/cleaner. I love this place, lots of gadgeteers to get info from.

You really do lose it if you don't use it. Things I used to tackle without even thinking about it, I now think through and am somewhat skeptical of my abilities, but always come good in the end.

I don't think its much of a "don't use it, lose it" thing, its more of a "5 years ago I would have tackled this without thinking, but now I am a little wiser and if I screw it up I will have to pay more than if I just call someone now who knows what they are doing..." Of course 99% of the time I still take a crack at it myself....
