interrogationI’ve just recently discovered that it’s possible to make a crude lie detector test at home. What a terrible thing this would have been if my parents had come across this information while I was growing up! I never would have gotten away with half of the things I did. My parents were innately trusting of me, however, so they probably would never have seen the need for something like this. I guess they convinced themselves that they did such an amazing job of being parents that there was no possible way any of their children could possibly tell a lie. Boy were they wrong!

My siblings and I banded together to help each other cover up the lies we told. Of course, we were willing to help each other just so our own lies wouldn’t be uncovered. We all had dirt on each other, so in order to keep our own dirt hidden, we needed to help one another out. Our poor parents – but what they didn’t know didn’t hurt them. It was mostly little lies, never anything major. And I’m almost certain they told me a few lies throughout the years – I’m still not completely convinced that my goldfish went to the goldfish hospital through the toilet.

Testing the accuracy of your tester

I wonder how accurate a homemade lie detector test would actually be. I mean, would it set off liar alarms for everything I said? Would it blow my cover? It would be a good experiment to see how accurately it can detect a lie. Then, once I knew for sure that it could tell the truth from a lie, I could carry it with me everywhere and get the truth from everyone, wherever I go! But, is the truth something I would really want to hear all of the time? It seems like a good idea, but sometimes ignorance can be bliss!

Honda-GeneratorThere you are, sitting on the couch watching TV; perhaps you are cooking a delicious meal and all of the sudden everything goes dark! Upon looking outside, you notice it is not just your home left in the dark. It is moments like this when having a back up power source is invaluable. There are many factors that come into play when searching for the right generator to meet your needs, but no matter what option you chose you always want to go with the quietest generator you can. The noisy sound of a generator running can not only annoy the neighbors, but cause sleepless nights during a power outage.

Generator Uses

Snow and ice storms with high winds can cause long term power outages, requiring you to run a heater to keep your family warm. Perhaps you need to keep food fresh or run an air conditioning unit after a summer hurricane leaves whole cities without electricity during the hottest times of the year. Contractors use generators on remote job sites with limited access to electricity in order to run numerous power tools to complete a job.

Understanding the Noise

Portable power generators are inherently noisy, but companies have taken steps to create more powerful, less noisy generators. Still, purchasing a quite generator is still a difficult task to accomplish. It is not just the decibel at which the portable generators operate, but also the construction of the generator, mechanics and the environment and atmosphere in which it is operated.

Why Purchase the Quietest Generator

There are many reasons that you may want to purchase the quietest generator possible that still fits your personal needs. It may be that your HOA or city has an ordinance that limits the sound allowed over long periods of time to usually around 75 decibels. Also, you do not want to get on bad terms with your neighbors, so limiting this sound might just been in your best interest in order to keep on good terms with your community. As mentioned before, a peaceful night sleep might be the reason you want the quietest generator possible.

Whatever the reason, make sure to do your research and purchase the best and quietest option to fit your needs.


When you are renovating your bathroom, planning out what is normally a tight space can be difficult. We have all been there, wanting to spice up our homes, but quickly do we always realize that we don’t have the money and/or the space to do so.

You should first start by visualizing what is you want to do with the bathroom. This can be difficult for some people, so feel free to take a look around in catalogues or online. You can always go to the local hardware store and look at their setups and bathroom appliances to get an idea as well.

Once this part of the process is finished, you are going to want to start planning out the finances. Not a whole lot of us are too loaded on cash, so it can be difficult to completely buy everything you need in one go. For us we’d recommend you to buy the more expensive stuff first. Corner shower stall, sinks, mirrors, toilet and whatever else you feel you want to put in there.

Also, unless you have a second bathroom, your sink and toilet are probably things you are going to do last. And when swapping them out make sure you do it in the same day you remove the old sink and toilet. No need to go without a toilet for 2 weeks.

Painting the bathroom can be difficult as well. Unless you are a good painter, you are probably going to want to hire someone else to do. Keep in mind that can get expensive, so our advice, give it a try yourself! If you come up with a result that you are happy with, you can avoid that painter cost.

Don’t be afraid to take action and see what you can accomplish here. It is crucial that you make the most out of the situation!
