    That picture, if we had had it in the first posting, would have been much clearer than her description. Of course there is no problem with that coupling since it is just a part of the vertical vent pipe.

    quote; Some folks are visual;some are readers

    When there is NO visual, I read the text EXACTLY as it is written assuming the words are used in the proper context. As far a Mr/Mrs once the string gets too long the any "sex of the originator" is long forgotten, and I have to rely on "who" might have had that experience. In this case I assumed by then that it was a female, because they are usually the ones who deal in the minutiae.

    The Shakesperian play "Much Ado About Nothing" pops into my head.

    Be careful. The last time I made a statement about how smart engineers are, I ended up out of commission for a week with a migraine -- probably from dealing with all the stuff us engineers are faced with.

    In your case, you might become "minute". I don't really know what that means, but it doesn't sound good.

    Some would call that an oxymoron.

    Good one HJ!

    In a way, engineers are like plumbers -- there are a few really good ones, more that are just OK, and a lot that should probably be doing something else.

    It's easy to pick on the idiots who design everyday things that are obviously just stupid -- but look inside your computer at the hundreds of parts that contain thousands, millions, or even billions of parts and imagine what it took for all those guys to figure out how put everything together cheaply and reliably...
