I have been a Tard at Large for some time now. When my washing machine broke recently, I informed my roommates via flowchart.
When I pulled the washing machine away from the wall to open it up, the first thing I thought of my time at Tardhaus. Before I lived at Tardhaus I would not have had any idea how water pumps, electric motors, knobs and controls, or any of the other stuff in the Washing Machine worked. But now, I have no fear to rip something open and check it out. I found the broken mount for the motor and it is now operating just fine.
