|Life is unpredictable. Things change. Stuff breaks. You can't count on much, but one fact that seems like an indelible universal truth can be illustrated with this flowchart:
Duct tape fixes things that shouldn't be moving. WD-40 fixes things that should be. These truths we hold dear.
But I recently discovered an exception. A glitch in the matrix. WD-40 doesn't work on the cast iron hinges of a wood stove door. It works for a day or two, but the high heat always wins out in the end, and the creaking sound reappears.
Initially I planned on writing a post about how WD-40 is never not enough. No one has ever said, "I tried WD-40 and it didn't work." It always works. But now I know that's not true. I myself can now say on this day, "I tried WD-40 and it didn't work." A day which will live in infamy. #products
