Ok guy's, I had a brain wave this morning while brushing my teeth. Decided to start a thread that ask's dumb question's regarding things we should; but maybe don't really know!

So to get the ball rolling, here's one I came up with this morning! Feel free to add your own.

Why is it; when I look in the mirror; all the smudges and spec of toothpaste on the glass are out of focus when my reflection is in focus? (and vice verser).


Waiting your replies so I can wake up less stupid than when I went to bed!

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Got a chuckle out of this Zed. Well, in my case, the toothpaste splatters and my reflection are both out of focus! The wall behind me is in focus. Thats why I have to use 1x readers and a small apature on the rear peep sight so I can see the front sight.

Its called a "Virtual Image", your reflection is the same distance behind the glass that you face is from the front of the glass. Because of that you can focus on either, but never both.

Because she's mean!!! When you really want soft poached eggs on top of corned beef hash, why do the yolks always break when you put them in water? Happened to me two days in a row. This morning I had fried eggs. Perfect yolks!

Heres how I do it, YMMV.
boil water in a pan, reduce heat a little so its just simmering.
add 4 drops of vinegar.
Swirl water with a wooden spoon.
Drop the egg from the cracked she!! into the center of the swirl.
DO NOT TOUCH IT till its done.
Remove with a Chinese wok strainer.
(Or plan "B")
Get one of those microwave poached egg making gizmos.

Kinda crack them, then lower the whole egg just till it touches the water (ouch!). Usually pretty successful, unless I'm really craving poached!

It may be the eggs themselves, they're messing with all sorts of stuff to save a buck. She!!s are about 1/2 as thick as they used to be!

I get mine from a lady just out of town. Free range. Brown eggs. Rooster is amongst the flock. They eat lots of bugs so the yolk is almost orange. Delicious! Need a cold chisel to crack the she!!s! They don't produce consistent hard boiled eggs though. Maybe to fresh.

thanks for the explanation Shamu.

As for the buttered toast falling butter side down; it's probably just mother nature trying to prevent coronary trouble! Wink
More likely due to the extra weight of the butter coupled with the poor aerodynamics if a slice of bread.
