Why does this look so familiar?

Well I don't remember my name no more
Neither does my daddy or his daddy before
And Grandaddy thinks he's in the war
Korea, WWII...who can tell any more
He'd buy a hundred pounds of axle grease
Put it in the fridge and call the police.
Now the doctor said he couldn't drive no more,
He just called the doctor a whore
Don't know what it's called but I've been told
We've been spending too much time in front of the copper-top stove

My dad's dad died of Alzheimers and my dad is going loopy already. I think I'll just continue to eat and drink whatever the fark I want and not worry about living to a ripe old, demented, age.

It will be a great day for the Ironic tag when "daily vitamin" pills are found to be the cause of the scariest of all diseases.

discgolfguru: ElLoco: AirForceVet: Who uses copper for their plumbing anymore? I use titanium.

PEX. Almost every new home built now uses PEX line. The line is pretty amazing, but if cheap fittings are used, the whole thing is trash. Don't skimp on the fittings.

[ image 207x154]

Anytime I have to replace plumbing now, I use PEX. Couldn't be happier with it so far.

Just avoid plastic fittings, they snap like pretzels. Also, PEX degrades in sunlight, so keep that in mind.
If anyone questions the strength of PEX, show them you can literally tow a car with the stuff.

I discovered, that in the apartment I moved into about six months ago. That the cheap ass landlord didn't put in any, I mean ANY, absolutly no exageration, NONE, cut off valves, in the entire three apartment unit when he replaced all the pvc with PEX.
Found this out when a leak appeared in my kitchen ceiling. The fitting to my tub above started leaking. I got it to stop by pushing on it to reseat. Two days later it blew out. Had to cut water at the main in the basement to the entire building to stop the cascade of water flowing into my kitchen.
Turns out a simple fitting costs about $10 @ Walmart. A valve, costs about $15.
He ended up paying me $300 for damages to my property and about $700 to fix his property.
He admitted he wished he hadn't been so cheap. But now says he can't afford installing valves for at least another year.

The bad news is the copper has given me Alzheimers. The good news is I'll never suffer from the Alzheimers because I have cancer and six months to live.
