    Have you ever played with...

    Solder wire? It's really interesting when you have nothing to do. You take a bunch of it and put it on a spoon, and then take a lighter and you heat the bottom of the spoon untill the wire melts. It looks like a piece of the guy from terminator 2. You can do some neat stuff with it. Yeah... This is what happens when I get bored.

    I think this folds quite nicely into the girlfriend thread.... and how most people don't have one on this board.
