    [–] What careers would you suggest for students finishing matric that don't intend to go to university? Uncle_Retardo 7 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago) in southafrica

    Geyser salesperson. I swear every geyser I buy explodes after 2 or 3 years leaving water gushing down the wall during the night. Then I'm pissed in the morning and google ''geyser'' and buy the first one I see and get the plumbers to install it. Oh, yeah, plumbers also always have work so do electricians.

    Don't choose something you like doing, chances are you will loath your job after a while, rather choose something you are good at, don't risk your passions over money. Do you prefer working at a desk or working with your hands? Do you want to be stuck at a desk all day or perhaps you may like to travel a bit and meet people. Are you introverted or extroverted? Can you be around people all day long or do you prefer your own company? My best advice is what you think you will do probably won't happen, usually luck, perseverance and the right connection and timing lands you the right job for you.

    [–] What is this? I found it in my garden. Uncle_Retardo 3 points ago in southafrica

    lolz MrL0gical actually has three testicles, thats why hes so popular with the ladies, they always ask to see his private parts. He showed me in Standard 7 but we are just bros, no touching or anything like that.
    Gareth has been free for a bit more than a week now and I hand dried him with some expensive silk cloth that I use to clean my reading glasses then wrapped him up so he was comfy and read him some Karl Marx before he hopped off into the bushes.

    [–] What is this? I found it in my garden. Uncle_Retardo 7 points ago in southafrica

    Found it under a tree. I thought it was a bird embryo or a snail without a shell. I dunno but I hope its not someones testicle. Its 2.5 cm across. The flies are attracted to it and the Hadedas don't want to eat so it has that going for it.

    [–] One of our fellow r/southafrica redditors was mugged yesterday. What can we do to help him? Uncle_Retardo 7 points ago in southafrica

    His point is valid and he is humble. Please don't be a dick to people who are in a crisis situation. Crime is terrible for sure but please take the time to ponder your comment before leaving it. Thank You.

    Damn, sorry to hear that. It helps your well being to see a professional, they also have a victim support group at most police stations. It's no good having those kinds of nightmares, just talking to someone does wonders for your mental wellness. Good luck and hope you feel better.

    [–] u/MrL0gical and I are having fun in the Brakpan public swimming pool now Uncle_Retardo 1 points ago in southafrica

    Hes mostly recovered now, my poor MrLogical had months of rehabilitation to recover from that terrible incident. He is doing fine now but still using the granny handles in the bathroom.

    Hey now, that's looking pretty neat! Good job on fixing the gaps.

    It used to be branded ''Wall Lite", it comes in large rolls 1 Metre by 20 metres, It is hard to find even in shops since new regulations prevent the use of EPS in home insulation. I have only a few sheets left but I'm saving them for a project. If you have a hot wire cutter you can cut sheets off a block of EPS foam, it should work the same, the skin formed from the heat even helps create a stronger surface so the foam is more malleable and manageable. Good luck!

    [–] Joburg jogger knocked over and killed Uncle_Retardo 1 points ago in southafrica

    That is very tragic and sad :( I know that road, it's next to the highway. One minute you're healthy, wealthy, wise and living then a second later its all gone.

    [–] Gotha G.V Uncle_Retardo 1 points ago in modelmakers

    Hi, thanks!. The foam is used in home insulation common in Germany and UK, it is factory produced by shaving 2mm thick sheets off a large cylinder of EPS (expanded Polystyrene foam). Its pretty flexible and easy to work with. Some hobbyists use EPP (expanded polypropylene) which is stronger but does not glue so well. In the US the only option may be depron since this EPS type of foam insulation is not readily available there.
