Louis House replied to Regular Joe's discussion Question about lathes for turning bowls
"There are plenty of bench-top lathes around. I turned a bowl on a bench lathe (not my own) just the other day, actually, and the thing was smaller than these models: The bowl I turned is about six inches in diameter and about three inches…"

Louis House replied to Pale Horse's discussion Obsolete Words Used Incorrectly Today
"A few dictionaries seem to define "rewind" as simply something along the lines of "to make a recording move backward". If the English language has adopted this broader meaning of the term, then we can't really say it's…"

Louis House replied to Michael Müller's discussion Who are the best/most important authors from your country?
"While there are many important Canadian writers, my top three favourite novelists would be: - Michael Ondaatje (Sri Lankan-born) - Margaret Atwood - Sinclair Ross I'd like to include Leonard Cohen, though he only wrote two novels and excelled…"

Louis House replied to Michael Müller's discussion Who are the best/most important authors from your country?
"And Kafka was Czech - though he was German-speaking. What do you mean by linguistic difference? American and British English are pretty close, sure, but I've found American and British literature to be two rather distinct genres, so to…"

Louis House replied to JD's discussion Manscape Backlash
"Here's the actual thing:  http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1090513813000226 I haven't paid to see the full article, nor have I tried too hard to find the full version for free anywhere, but the first author appears to…"

Louis House replied to JD's discussion Manscape Backlash
""Several" meaning how many? This study found that 10 days of growth was the most attractive. You'd be right about ~5 days of stubble, though, which was rated the least attractive, apparently. "

Louis House replied to Loki's discussion Decent bottle of booze for my best friend?
"Back when I drank rum more than whisky, I'd drink Havana Club and Flor de Cana. They're probably the only rums I'd drink straight over ice, though I've never shelled out for anything too expensive. "

Louis House replied to Ben's discussion New jazz musicians to listen to?
"At first I thought you were looking for new, as in current/contemporary jazz artists. So I'll give you a few of those. "The later stuff" doesn't mean 50s/60s! Jazz hasn't died yet.Roy Hargrove is current. This tune of his is…"

Louis House replied to Ratchit's discussion My coffee is weak sauce
"I think it's important to note that coffee shouldn't be boiled at 100 degrees celsius/212 degrees fahrenheit. I think in fahrenheit something like 190-200 degrees is preferred.  If you're willing to switch methods, try this…"

Louis House replied to Tyler M.'s discussion Espresso at Home
"I've used these, and this is what I came here to suggest. That said, if you want real espresso, you're going to need a real espresso machine. Unfortunately, as you've noticed, they're quite expensive. I'd say get…"

Louis House replied to Tucker B. Arnold's discussion Summer jobs for a teenager
"You don't really get to be so picky until you're older, and even then, landing the job you actually want might be harder than you think. I've had a lot of jobs for someone my age (I think). There were ones I enjoyed, like when I…"

Quote
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

There is a crack in everything; that's how the light gets in.

Life is short, art long, opportunity fleeting, experiment treacherous, judgment difficult.

A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one’s neighbor — such is my idea of happiness.
