Do you have a vacuum chamber?
Nah, I haven't sprung for the big money yet ... going to try with pipettes next time, to inject the resin rather than hope it flows down with help from a toothpick (since that didn't work last time!).
Still, I got one usable die from it (d4). Just need to sand it, to remove all traces of the sprue.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Just can manage it.
Although it was perfectly placed when I bought it.
Every time I refill the soap container.
No matter what technique I employ.
I can never get the spigot to point in the proper direction.

Yeah, well, I had to pay a speeding ticket a while back ... for being 1 km/h over the limit (after the allowance ...).

Annoying. If it was a live police officer, they wouldn't even have bothered to pull me over for it.

Same here. It's more expensive to check the camera, figure out my address, write and send the bill, check if the payment came in than what they make with the fine. But's that's alright, the taxpayer covers that which is ...............ME!

I'm not complaining. They catch me, I pay. And memorize the different abilities of their toys.

I think it was due to the fact he was terrible at tennis due to the fog of cognac scented cigar smoke and they used to hit the balls at him for fun.

True. But the only place I come across subjects suitable for EF-Friday-threads is .... EF.

An other first world problem is when you come home and find a fat, 3cm long screw under your dining-table which a) was not there the day before when cleaning all the floors, b) you live by yourself and have not taken anything apart/moved anything around, c) after checking anything in the vicinity where it could have fallen off, knowing darn well that screws do not fall off and found nothing .....
..... you're basically waiting on edge for something to fall apart.
