So went downstairs into the basement. Noticed my furnace was leaking. And I have determined that this is no longer working. What is it? How do I replace it? Where do I get one?
Looks like the hole has become slightly bigger over time and the screw got loose and fell off. It doesn't stay in anymore. I don't have access to the inside of this chair leg, so I can't add a nut/bolt.
Hello. Some weeks ago I lost one of my two airpods in my apartment and I know that it has to be here because there is no other possibility that doesn't involve breaking the laws of physics (needless to say that I have already searched the entire apartment and somehow, I haven't seen it).
The problem is that, even though the other one is on and functional, the one I can't find has been off for a while because it turns off by itself without use.
The exact model is "Anker Soundcore R100 Ipx". Is there a way to find it?
Water is dripping from the hot water tank. Seems like an outlet. But how do I stop it. Its making floor in furnance room wet.
Small foundation crack
Inspector mentioned this small foundation crack on a house we are closing on in about a week. This is in Ontario.
Is this something I should call a professional for, or could be done as DIY. I have never done something like this before. Does anyone have a process I could follow?
He checked the other side wall and it’s dry (fuse panel is there).
We are also planning on grading this entire side of the house as currently it slopes toward the house after the crack is fixed.
Rubber band trick did not work.
How should I go about this situation?
About 1.5 years ago I let my dad live with me . He was struggling financially and going to be homeless . For reference I live in a one bedroom apartment so all of his stuff is currently in the living room . I allowed him to move in so he could get a job and start saving . Currently he does not have a job and has not been saving . My dad and I have always had a rocky relationship when it’s good , it’s great . When it’s bad , it’s horrible . Often we argue and it turns into him calling me names and once it even turned violent . He was driving and we got into an argument and he proceeded to get in my face and start yelling “fucking cunt” and had his middle finger about a cm from my nose . To try and get his middle finger out of my face , I tried to push it away but got his face instead . He proceeded to hit me in my face . This is a person that never apologizes for anything said , uses my mental health against me , always brings up my mother ( which she was an addict and never in my life) , has told me I should have been aborted and so much more . I mean I say some pretty messed up stuff back but I feel like I’m being provoked and I’m reacting to the emotional abuse . Whenever I said how he never says sorry and that he is abusive he spins it ON ME and says “you’re abusive” , etc . Never ever takes accountability.
He helps me pay for the rent but is not on the lease . I wonder if I should even kick him out because my rent is $1200 , I don’t have good enough credit to get a new place and my lease is up in 6 months .I work 2 part time jobs and I am in school right now . My boyfriend offered for me to live with him but I’m not sure how my cat and his cat will get along and the house has 2 dogs .
Im just really stuck mentally , I constantly feel trapped at home . I do like how my dad takes care of my cat when I’m not there but I cannot physically take the arguments anymore . I don’t want him living in his car but he has made no effort to find a job , no interviews or save money in all this time . I’m not sure what to do financially or mentally
My partner and I argue a lot. I’m always thinking about how I can do better next time and I apologise for my part in causing an argument. My partner kind of takes that but doesn’t realise that she doesn’t ever on her own reflect and think about what she can do to improve. It’s got to the point where I’m worried she won’t ever change her mindset. I don’t want to manipulate of course, I feel like it’s enlightening to realise you can only change your own actions and try to improve yourself, and I want to know how I could go about enlightening here. TIA
In my sleep put in plastic tray instead of oven tray, whole thing melted. I scraped most of it but there are many pieces that are stuck esp in the metal grid.
how to clean it, how to remove that plastic smell, is it safe?
Hey folks, I bought a brand new solid wood bed and it’s beautiful. The entire frame is perfect but the headboard which is also solid wood smells like formaldehyde. How do I get rid of the smell? It’s been a week. I’ve kept window open and master bath fan on to ventilate. I closed it yesterday because it’s 50° and raining and when I went to bed, the whole room smelled. I’ve also wiped the headboard down a few times. Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated <3

For a long period of my life since I was around nine until now I have been addicted to in appropriate videos.
When I was a little kid I didn’t know it was wrong and didn’t know why I felt that way when I watched these said videos. Currently it is getting worse since I have unregulated internet access and I got addicted to it again.
I don’t want this to take over my life and ruin it for me, please help me get rid of it for good.
I thought I checked all my pockets, I was wrong. I used some Goof-Off, but that just smeared it all over.
There is an undocumented (in the included instructions) mute feature on the Panasonic NN-SC668S (and similar Panasonic) models of microwaves sold at Costco.
You can find instructions at this handy Panasonic lookup tool. However, the trick is that these steps must be completed immediately after the microwave is plugged in, a step omitted from their documentation.
To do this for the NN-SC668S:
Hope this helps!
In a huge dumb move, I was dying some clothes and left the metal tongs in the pot with hot red dyed water and they’re totally stained. Was wondering if anyone knew how to undo this?
Hi! I'm developing feelings for a friend of mine and theyve expressed an interest in walkmans (walkmen?) before, and i want to get them a walkman and make them some mixtapes for either Christmas or their next birthday or something. Idk the best method to do this in 2023, and would love some help.
I just moved into a college apartment and I am trying to install a bidet. The bolts are below the housing shown on the images but I can't seem to find how to remove it. I looked up videos for other toilet seats and there are usually some easy-to-remove plastic parts that expose the bolts but I haven't had any luck with this seat. Should I try to pry from the very bottom? I'm worried that this might break the seat.
