During the hot hot hot Summer our fan broke. One of the blades ripped itself free and over time another two just sort of fell off. The metal ummm thing that was holding the blades on must have just got old and tired. This is a job for my laser cutter, thought I.
I attached the blades….
and then attached the whole thing to the fan.
It was only at this moment, after several months thought and planning, did I notice that the arm of the metal thing was kind of angled…to kind of angle the blade and make it move air and stuff. The way mine is set up those blades are just going to efficiently slice through the air and make barely a draught.
Can I be bothered having another go at fixing it or does it just get recycled???
For a long time I’ve been an avid Facebook user. Posting several times a day. Slavishly checking for new updates every second of personal downtime. I even realised there was a gap in the Android market and wrote a Facebook Android App before Facebook got around to it. I got a cease and desist letter from FB lawyers but that’s another story.
Well, today I de-activated my account. Lost interest. Really can’t be arsed with the banality of it anymore. If I have anything exciting to share with the world then I’ll post it here…and the world won’t actually see it 🙂
I deleted my twitter account a few months ago too. So I appear to be following in the footsteps of Eric Cartman and dropping off all social media…well, it is all a bit shit really isn’t it?
My darling wife, in one of her many ploys to kill me, got me a flyboarding experience for my birthday. It took me quite a few attempts to get to the rank of complete novice that you see above, but it was a fantastic experience and one that everybody should have a go at.
