    Welding, I wish I knew how to weld.

    There's no reason for it. I just think it's such a bloke thing to be able to do.

    Change reality freely at my will.
    That's the way the potato mashes.
    That's the way the pan flashes.
    That's the way the market crashes.
    That's the way the whip lashes.
    That's the way the teeth gnashes.

    I can solder, I'm actually very good at it.

    The trick is to use good heat sinks and make the things to be soldered very hot, prior to applying the solder. Otherwise you get "dry" joints.

    I went to college to be a welding fabricator. It's fun welding but doesn't seem to last long

    Welding is overrated - its like putting toothpaste on your toothbrush.
    Next time your at your mechanics or see someone doing it - simply ask them to teach you - itll only take a minute.

    I wish i knew more about physics and chemistry - i wouldnt have to rely on those who do
