Q:

How do you free two buckets that are stuck together?

A:

Buckets often get stuck together so tightly that they cannot be removed using pliers. They can, however, be pried apart using force or hot water.

  1. Turn the buckets upside down

    Turn the stuck buckets upside down so the open end is facing the ground. Set them on the ground.

  2. Put your foot through a bucket handle

    Put your foot through the opening of the bucket handle closest to the ground.

  3. Pull the top bucket up by the rim

    Grasp the bucket closest to you by the rim. Pull upwards, keeping your foot through the handle of the bottom bucket until the top bucket releases.

  4. Run hot water over the buckets

    If the buckets are still stuck together, run hot water over the outermost stuck bucket for 30 to 60 seconds. Repeat the first three steps to pry the buckets apart.

    Why do dogs get stuck together after mating?

  • Q:

    Why do dogs get stuck after they mate?

    A:

    When dogs mate, the bulbus glandis of the male dog's penis swells inside the female dog's vagina, and this is a normal part of dog breeding. The act of the dogs getting stuck together is called a tie. The sperm is released during the beginning of the tie and prostatic fluid is released afterwards.

    Why do dogs get stuck together when they mate?

    A:

    Dogs get stuck together when mating because the male dog's penis swells inside the female dog's vagina, causing the two dogs to lock together in a breeding tie. The dogs remain locked together for two to 30 minutes until the bulbus glandis on the male's penis returns to normal size.
