i learned not to press down on a procescor when installing it in a motherboard. i will never forgive myself for bending the pin that dual core when they first came out and cost some serious money.
do not make a soda can stove to short and the holes to small. the fuel will spray out the seams and light everything on fire (including yourself)
im oke though =P just let this be a warning to people making one
yeah i bought another one... the last one just wasnt what i was looking for
Do not nail/epoxy/bolt shut anything that's designed to expand
If something feels loose ASK before you try to secure it
For anything that is designed to hang on the wall independently its best not to add glass ornaments
For all aerosol cans that tell you not to spray it upside down, they are telling the truth
For spray on sunscreen/bug repellent, verify the position of the nozzle before you spray
If your changing a light bulb, verify that your not standing on a roller chair
While your gassing up the car, verify that you've pushed the nozzle all the way in and keep your eye on it, not the hot girl gassing up in front of you.
When carrying heavy items on concrete pavement, do not assume the "anti-slipping" feature on your shoes work as advertised
If your carrying your hotwire in your pants, lock it out, same goes for knives.
If the label says "unroll and lay flat," do not assume it applies to you
auto-focus isn't, auto-adjust never
If mom says its the music is too loud, its too loud, even if the speakers are on mute
Whatever your microwaveable item says, do not assume the time is based on your microwave's highest setting.
If it says microwaveable, do not assume its dishwasher safe
Watch where you pour fabric softener, no it does not go down the same hole as bleach
Do not accidentally pour milk on the carpet, because no one will believe you did it accidentally
When you park the car, be considerate of others. If someone is double parked and your not, and that other individual can't get in their drivers door because your parked properly, expect an argument.
When you suspect your pen exploded, do not try to disassemble it on your desk without some protection
Next time you visit any recreation park, verify that your camera's batteries are not sitting on the charger at home

Make sure ya wire cutters are sharp enough to strip the insulation from cables or one slip and this can happen
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have
When manually overclocking using your computers BIOS, do not double your cpu's multiplyer.
When your plan above does not work, do not start moving random jumpers on your computer thinking you are clearing the CMOS.
That was not me, but a friend who saw me overclocking my pc and wanted to do the same. Now he is very experienced. Thankfully.
Never play slipknot when someone you want to impress is expected to come over. (Why must people be early)
Just because axes are dull, does not mean hatchets are.
Do not write data to a solid state drive when your UPS battery is not working and it is raining outside.
rely only on yourself.
Do not use RAID 0 on old unreliable drives.
Hot babes who are lacking money can suck the cash right out of you without even asking for it. And you never even regret it!
Don't overclock unless you are willing to spend time figuring it out. (a few times over the years)
Don't overclock your friend's processor when he is compiling something, the processor will overheat and crash (2004)
Don't overclock your computer at a LAN party to unrar something faster, WinRAR will end up giving you an error. (2009)
When the power company contractor says they are going to cut your power, they won't cut it until you have stopped watching them and go to play computer games (2006) I bought my first ups after that one.
If, in the course of your life, you have to choose between two paths, and one path will lead to a can of Fix-a-Flat(the large tire truck and suv can, no less) exploding in the back seat of your truck...........the OTHER path is undoubtedly the path you should choose.
Edit: Cleaned it all up as best I could, left all the windows open and a large fan blowing in the cab. Five hours later and the fumes are still so strong that it'd be unsafe to sit in the cab with the windows closed. Moving all that kind of stuff to storage areas outside the cab!
A 2,000 watt fuel efficient generator running a few things is better than a 10,000 generator that used up all your fuel that you can't replace. Goes with...no such thing as to much fuel on hand PRIOR to a storm.
When hooking up a blue laser diode for a demonstration, always use a soft-start circuit to drive it instead of a simple series resistor with a noisy on/off switch.
alotta money in that smoke...
How dare you use a resistor?! at the very minimum a LM317 in current regulation mode could've been better
Now that violet laser diode is just a violet LED - it doesn't lase anymore, leading me to believe that I cracked one of the internal facets on the chip. At least it still makes light...

Methinks if the bond wire vaporized, it wouldn't light up at all...?
I've had a couple of Crees that have gone into very low light mode, I think thanks to getting too hot.
No, a torch does not always mean flames.
LED Driver List - now database driven and with new search features.
Which brings me to something else I learned the hard way, when she says "I'm getting a divorce" that means the dude is still around. Meet at your place instead of her's.
Good thing he can't shoot worth a ****.
Oh and BTW 6 years later those 2 are still married and now have 2 kids.

Learned this one the hard way many years ago, and the lesson saved my ass again today.
Before removing the drain plug on anything(transmission, transfer case, etc), always remove the fill plug first. Far better to find out that you won't be able to refill said device BEFORE you've drained the old fluid out.
