    That is definitely why you don't leave shit on top of a latter. My uncle left a hammer similar to Linus's a top a latter similar in height to the orange latter. I moved the latter and split my skull open. I was 13 good times.

    Are you aware how popular this channel is in Scandinavia and are you also aware that we celebrate Christmas on the 24th? Posting this video on Christmas Eve might have been a mistake.

    It's still a twisted pair if 99.99% of the length is twisted, an inch vs half an inch, isn't going to show up as a problem, the whole point of a twisted pair is to cancel out cross talk over the run of the cable with other cables, that last inch or so isn't going to be an issue.
