Guys, I messed up. My wife has this pitcher she makes tea in that her grandmother who has passed   had always used when my wife was young. It is a cheap plastic pitcher, but has a kind of sentimental value that is hard to describe.So I was trying to be helpful, but like so very often when a man tries to help around the house I cracked this pitcher. It is long, but no pieces chipped off. I have attached an image. can I make this useable again? Be able to add ice and hold liquid? How can I go…See More

Loss of child

Hey Gentleman, a bit of a sad subject here. One of my coworkers had a child recently (named him Hudson Hawk, how legit is that), a baby boy and after being home for a couple of weeks the baby died of SIDS. I am going to the visitation tomorrow and would like to give something to the father, any ideas outside of the usual flowers and such. Thank you sirs. See More

"Try the alum block. I had the same problem in college but outgrew it.  I think my hair got coarser over time so it would just poke right through the skin and not curl under."
