    What is this?

    I am Tjbot! I'm a solution devised by the genious mods to prevent there ever being a day that hit threads aren't posted! The whole point of my existence is to post a hit thread if one doesn't exist by 12:08am PST. If you see this post, assume that this one is the main post. One of the mod team will clean up existing posts and consolidate once they wake up and get online. As my name indicates, I am a bot. I don't post, nor do I respond to PM's. If you have any problems, send an email to tjbot@ns4t.net or PM Tjololo, he can help out with any issues.
    Want to make tomorrow's thread? Just go for it!

    Fun side fact: Cold shower soap/hair feels funky as hell. Like you can physically feel it's clean, but it feels more like it's only halfway done, no matter the amount of rinses and applications.

    In other news, no new prospects on the water tank. Thinking I may have to do all this shit myself; which i'm terrified of because natural gas is something you generally don't fuck with.

    They didn't show up yesterday. Hopefully that's not a bad sign they are skipping a week again.

    When I was a kid we had hot water only once a week. It was heated in a big wood burning tank. Washing without a running hot water is a hassle, but not impossible. You need two buckets of water. Boil water and mix into cold water in the bucket until it's warm enough. The first bucket is to soap up yourself and wash with a washcloth. Start with you hair. The second bucket of clean water you use for rinsing. Use a scoop of some kind and pour over yourself slowly. Again start from the top.

    I would not mess with natural gas. You don't know anybody who has some plumbing experience to give you a hand? Electric water heater is not that hard to change. Gas scares me too.

    Pulled out the large 5 gallon cooking pot out of storage only to realize my brother is an idiot and it has a 5 inch wide rusted hole in the middle (he stored some kind of caustic cleaning material in it and it got wet, oxidizing the shit out of the pan). I'm going out today to get another one as well as a whole new cookware set because again, brother is a fuckup.

    I have a few family members that know what they are doing, but one moved to Missouri and has 0% chance of ever coming back. The other we are not too sure about his credentials yet.

    Thought about getting an electric one, but the electrical in the house is well over 40 years old and probably wouldn't support it.

    When I was a kid, we had a cistern lined with tar (too far out in the country to have city water.) If the water level got too low, big globs of tar would come out of the tap, so my mother rationed water. We were only allowed a bath once a week, with only a couple of inches of water in the bottom of the tub, and our hair was always so greasy that people commented on it. Fun times...

    Worst we ever had it was when we first moved back to Cleveland. We had to run a garden hose from an adjacent sister building to the back building in the dead of winter (before we got our first home). All because the water company refused to actually come out and fix the broken at the street intake for the back home (the entire property was in foreclosure). Imagine waking up to icy sludge coming out the faucet as the pressure tried to clean out what had frozen in the hose that night lol.

    Yours sounds way worse, like sticks of nowhere Alabama worse.

    It was rural Ohio, but yeah, poverty. Until I was in high school and my mother managed to save enough money to buy her first business: a restaurant. All of her daughters worked in it, for no pay, for a long time, and then for very little money for a lot longer. Eventually she sold it, and bought a factory. One of my sisters, who was married to someone who made decent money, put her house up for collateral to let Mom buy that factory. Flash forward several decades of all of us slaving for her for next to nothing in return, and the business belongs to our much younger brothers, because they were born the all important joysticks that control the world. Well... I've told you all of that before.

    We had a well for drinking water, because the cistern held rain water and was too contaminated to drink, even if it hadn't been for the tar problem. When the water level in the cistern got too low, I had to hook a hose up to the well spout and run it into the cistern, which I was terrified of falling into, because I was tiny then. Then pump water into the cistern. I still remember how happy I was when my useless, vicious father finally hooked an electric pump onto that well.

    Sometimes when requesters ask to write about nice and pleasant memories...I'm like duh. What are those? I can see a silver lining though. Made me very resilient and appreciative what I have now. Sometimes even warm water from a faucet is a luxury.

    I know the feeling. I live in Cleveland, a city that just sucks the happiness from you like Flint Michigan does lead from it's pipes. I mean, it's better than Baltimore , MD by a long shot. I'm usually very snarky when it comes to "remember a time" crap.
