If I wasn't broke, I would definitely do this. I'm so afraid of getting a tattoo...because if I don't like it, it'll last forever. If I DO like it, I probably have to hide it to get a teaching job...or really to be taken seriously in physics.
Gutter Drips Is that dripping noise in your downspout forcing you to keep your bedroom window closed at night? Tie a synthetic rope onto one of the gutter hangers and run it down into the downspout. Drops of water will cling to the rope and flow down instead of plummeting the whole length of the downspout and causing that irritating drip. Adding a rope does restrict the water flow, so this may not be the best option if your gutter is prone to overflowing or gets clogged easily.
