I’m here, where sun meets sea and sky
No other time or place to be,
Lost together forever free

how to remove oil filter without wrench

Today I learned a good tip to remove an oil filter if you don’t have the right wrench. You just hammer a screwdriver right through the can, til it comes out the other side, and use that to twist it off. It does feel a bit like you’re murdering your car though, as you’re right underneath it, like Beowulf, then your final, triumphant hammer strike drives your screwdriver through what I guess is it’s pancreas, and hot, black blood gushes out and splatters all over your face.

Oddyseus’s bed

After Oddyseus finally comes home after 19 years and kills all the bad guys, his wife Penelope still won’t let herself believe it’s him. In her final ‘test’ she asks someone to move his bed outside the room, to which Oddyseus retorts:

"Wife, I am much displeased at what you have just been saying. Who has been taking my bed from the place in which I left it? He must have found it a hard task, no matter how skilled a workman he was, unless some god came and helped him to shift it. There is no man living, however strong and in his prime, who could move it from its place, for it is a marvellous curiosity which I made with my very own hands. There was a young olive growing within the precincts of the house, in full vigour, and about as thick as a bearing-post. I built my room round this with strong walls of stone and a roof to cover them, and I made the doors strong and well-fitting. Then I cut off the top boughs of the olive tree and left the stump standing. This I dressed roughly from the root upwards and then worked with carpenter’s tools well and skilfully, straightening my work by drawing a line on the wood, and making it into a bed-prop. I then bored a hole down the middle, and made it the centre-post of my bed, at which I worked till I had finished it, inlaying it with gold and silver; after this I stretched a hide of crimson leather from one side of it to the other. So you see I know all about it, and I desire to learn whether it is still there, or whether any one has been removing it by cutting down the olive tree at its roots." 

Pretty sick bed! One day I will build a bed like this.
