Two wrenches definitely won't work. As others have suggested, it looks like copper pipe has been soldered into the faucet intake.

If you are planning on doing this yourself, make sure that you look at videos that explain how to replace fixtures that are sweated on.

Typically players are fairly symmetrically placed out in the field. Coaches sometimes 'shift' the position of players in the field towards the areas where a batter historically hits which supposedly gives them a higher chance of catching the ball and making an out.

The word 'fans' is short for fanatics, which answers your second question.

Try using a hex nut driver. You will be able to get better torque on the screw. Add a little oil to the screw and when the screw stops moving, back it out a half turn, then tighten it again. Continue backing out and retightening as long as each time that you retighten, it advances a little further.

You need to realize that she is not worth your worry. Nothing is going to happen, so just accept that sitting near her means absolutely nothing as far as a relationship is concerned. No desire, no fear, just nothing. Just acknowledge her presence (a simple hey) and move on with the rest of your day.

This same person will have no qualms about killing ants that are invading his home, swatting mosquitoes that are sucking his blood, nor taking medication to kill the bacteria that have infected his body. Where does the distinction between god's creatures begin and end?

Water into the bowl jet is supplied through the overflow tube that extends above the flapper. A tube from the top of the fill valve supplies water into the overflow tube when it is filling the tank after the flush.

Either your float valve is set too high and water is trickling from the tank into the overflow valve (the water should stop about 1/4 to 1/2 inch before it reaches the top of the overflow valve), or you have a slow leak at the flapper that is causing a momentary drop in the float valve which results in water from the valve to be delivered to the overflow tube.

> If there is a way to install the wall paper without removing them that would be helpful to know.

You can measure the locations of the fixtures and cut holes in the wallpaper that will allow for the opening of the fixtures. Once that is done, take a knife and cut lines in the wallpaper from each hole to the other two hole. This will make three flaps that you bend away to create an opening that will allow the hoses and the fixtures to pass through as you maneuver the wallpaper onto the wall. After the wallpaper is on the wall, the flaps can be bent back so that the lines that you cut form an invisible seam.

> Yes so like it would leak downstairs.

For it to show up downstairs, there must be a fair amount of water that is not making it into the shower pan.

If you have pools of water on the bathroom floor after you shower, the problem is not with the tiles and grout, but with your not containing the water properly in the first place. If this is the case, the simple solution is to determine the path of the water from the shower area to the floor and block off that path so that no water can escape the shower area.

If there are no signs of water on the flooring itself, then your next check is to make sure that the border between the walls and the shower pan is caulked properly.

Unless there are major portions of grout missing, this should not be an issue.

As others have suggested, if there isn't any visible pooling, it is probably a leak in the plumbling,

Yes, use all-purpose joint compound. Paint the wall with a primer before applying the finishing coat.

Using golf tees or tooth picks is a tried and true method for filling in the screw holes of hinges. The fact that you have a hollow core door does not factor into the repair because your screws don't extend beyond the door's wood skeleton.

Use a fast setting wood glue like this to quicken the set time.
