I'm not totally immune, but I can grab it without it bothering me and if I brush against it, it stings for a few seconds and goes away. Same with bee stings.

Ant acid...trippy. The correct term is formic acid.

They make a cream for that itching stuff, cortisone is the active ingredient.

When I get stung by a wasp the sting site looks like a mosquito bite. However, my vision gets blurry for 4 or 5 days and have to use reading glasses to get around. Then it swings the other way and I have 20/20 vision for a month and can't see with my prescription glasses. It's happened to me 4 times. I changed eye doctors because the one I was going to said it couldn't happen.

Why would you want to put a sticker on the window of your car? You get a sponsor for your jag?

Its crooked.....



I got caught in a hail storm in the corolla last night... Looks like I'll be learning to PDR this winter. I'll turn it in to insurance, and then this winter when my dads friend that does PDR is slow, I'll have him show me how its done...

My dads friend just picked up the tools on CL and started pushing dents on auction cars until he was comfortable with customer cars. He says now he won't do overalls after hail storms. He wants the big difficult dents on the new Caddy. He can easily make a grand a day doing it.

I wouldn't want to do it for a living, but knowing how to do it would come in handy.

definitely a cool skill to have. a few years back, we had some major hail come through and wipe out entire dealerships worth of new cars. he was busy for 4 months straight, 12 hours a day, 6 days a week.

insurance would normall pay per body panel, instead of per dent like most people pay. even then, he was raking in cash.

No doubt. He did a car for a friend of mine. Took him a little over two days to repair 2k worth of hail damage. When he was done you couldn't tell that this dark green car had ever seen hail.
