Yes. WD40 is not a lubricant, it is a water displacer.
Using it as a lubricant is useless as it is too thin and will wash off in even a light shower.
Go to your LBS and buy some wet lube, teflon based preferably.
Wet lube for this time of year, dry for summer.

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

You only need to know this. Use WD-40 for when it doesn't move and should, and use Duck Tape for when it moves and it shouldn't.

Don't use distortion pedals. Just bury your guitar for three weeks, and then dig it up, that should do the job.

Whatever people keep saying don't use WD40 as lube for your bike's chain. If anything it will clean your chain and leave the metal naked.

Both of you fail.
It'll work for a mile, maybe, but is too thin to cling to the chain and will fall off.
I tried it for a bit. Hence why I used to go through chains at a rate of three a month...

+1 point to you.
And yeah, I've just swapped over too, I keep thinking it's broken. Too quiet.

Why are there so many lube specialists in the pit?
