Removing Glued LEGO Magnet Minifigures

I decided to spend a bit of time myself trying to find a solution that is both safe for the minifig and the person using the method. (Please read our Tutorials Disclaimer for your safety here.) I will start with the process that I found working, and below that I will list my failed attempts for your further amusement (and horror!). ;)

In defense of UDP

Heard through @StrongwaterSec

I'll defend UDP.

UDP is the honey badger of the internet protocol suite.

UDP is all about the transaction. UDP is standing on a cliff yelling, "Come at me, bro", whether you're there or not.

UDP is a man's protocol doing real shit like bootstrapping your ass and slapping an IP on you. Get up, motha fucka!

UDP will talk shit to one of you or all of you. UDP ain't scared. UDP brought the fear.

UDP understands that you may be slow sometimes. So UDP will wait for your sorry ass. UDP grew up without a father, too.

UDP sends a message and couldn't give a fuck if you got it or not.

UDP got a message from you saying that you got his messages and guess what? UDP didn't even open it! Not one fuck given.

Don't try to shake UDP's hand! You crazy?

And, when UDP dies because you weren't available, UDP doesn't shed a tear. UDP is hardcore. He's going out even if he knows you ain't there. UDP is a goddam one-man slaughter house.


Because UDP doesn't give a fuck.

Hate Small Talk? One Approach Anyone Can Use - by Jeff Haden

"Look around the room. Pick someone who looks uncomfortable. Pick someone who seems to feel out of place. Pick someone just like you."

"Then go talk to them. Make it your goal to make that one person feel more comfortable. Then you'll feel more comfortable too."

Try it. If it's painful to mingle, if it's awkward to make small talk, use those feelings in a positive way. Turn sympathy for yourself into empathy for another. Go rescue someone.

Just introduce yourself to people and ask a basic question: what they do, where they're from, why they're attending. You don't need to be a conversational genius. The people you rescue won't notice. They'll be too busy feeling less like wallflowers and more like people who belong--and they will always remember that it was you who made them feel that way.
