Good point... and here's another one. I used braces to hold up a wall when I was building my new house this past summer.

Oh, come on... that was funny!!

Braces to hold up a wall?

Well I use the toe section of a pair of tights over the end of a water pipe going into my water butt!

It traps any debris coming down from the pipe i.e. keeps the water clean that goes into the water butt.

I really admire your lifestyle Rugged Dude - more (solar) power to you!

I used the pants braces... I duct taped them to a 2 x 6 x 8, construction grade spruce. They worked really, really well!!

Indeed they would.

And yes, we put "braces" on children's teeth too.

I still have all of the parts, including the cutters for 3 different size grinds. Much like this one (only not rusty):

Ahhh...the Fiesta "Koolaid pitcher"!. The only colour of paint/glaze used that was radioactive was the orange!
