"Overall in good condition damagewise"... (also an often used statement on certain webpages):D

IIs it possible that such objects also have penetration twins of C and H (so-called W twins)?

Volkmar


Perhaps.

This has been a ton of fun about, of all things, a hot water faucet. Strange. But it is important nonetheless. If you look at the news every night you get the impression that the world is in conflict continually. No hope for different nationalities. Yet here (oh god this is serious) we can have fun over a trivial hot water faucet (fine though it undoubtedly is). I think this is more real than any news broadcast. Too bad we share it with only ourselves. A wider audience might gain some lessons from a stupid water faucet. Well done to all on this thread to all brothers of the earth and geology. PS. Is the fixture for sale perhaps??
