can i ask for your advice on something else?...

Of course.

Best ever advice I can give a young lass like yourself though is this...

Trust the boy who's always looking into your eyes and not the one who's eyes are elsewhere.

Thanks for the wonderful advice. Can I get a second opinion? Does anyone know what is wrong with me out there in Disneyland?

Your local mental health professionals may be able to help.

Sincere best wishes in finding a "cure"!

(I mean that.  No joke)

Parsnips - what's the point?

Also, i've bent my chopper - what's the best way of straightening it?

Throw it in a skip.  Then go home and clean the place and yourself up.  The coppers will blame immigrants anyway so have no fears.

Should you need assistance, call on the services of some boy that fancies you.  He'll keep his mouth shut, for just a kiss.

Good luck, young psycho!

Parsnips?  I have no idea, SS.  Sorry about that.

Now, choppers. (I'm taking it for granted that you're referring to the blade and not the handle as handles are easy replaced.)

It obviously depends on the material.  Some are easily pliable, some not so much.  If it's a light metal chopper just a mallet usually works but if it's steel you'd probably need a wee blast of heat and a mallet. Maybe even a big blast of heat.
A tighten-up in a vice can also work a treat with lighter metals.  (remember to cushion the metal so as not to mark it)

Other choppers need no such endeavour and will straighten themselves out in good time.  Usually when you least need it or expect it.  It's a nice surprise however.

Hope this helps.  :)

It does, thanks... but not in the way you think, I wasn't referring to blades, but your reply reminded me that I do have a machete that needs straightening :)

I was referring to a custom chopper, about 9ft long with extended forks and a fat back tire, the frame is bent...and am looking for any alternative then spending hundreds on a new one.....I think i'm doomed there though.... cheers anyway :tu:

My computer is a little old and unstable, should I get a new one or save the money for something more important?

Is the frame made of pipe? Round metal, flat? (I'm a marine plumber & coppersmith btw)  You can't muscle it back it into shape?
If it's not buckled a heat with a blowtorch and some manipulation will fix it.  If buckled, a cut & replace could work.

Best have a man do it, though.  Some pipes ain't for heating!

It could just need some TLC, matey.
I'd ask around for a local system-builder and ask them, face to face.  These guys love fixing-up computers and will do it cheaply and sometimes for free.
