Where bad choices make good stories
Well, she got her rocks off.
Not that I would or could use that technique, I did utilize another from one of the Highland(?) games. They have to pick up a large stone, mount to their shoulders and repeat as many times as able or maybe carry it to a end point, can't quite remember.Anyhow, they roll it to their knee, tip it up and then roll again to their shoulder. When I was working at a alfalfa sprout farm, a driver dropped off a 50+ lb sack of seed. Trouble is he dropped it off in the grass and I could not get the hand truck to it. Recalled that technique and was able to get it to my shoulder to carry in the greenhouse.
That's a great story. Old ways work best in my experience, and you prove it.Sounds like the driver was just being an asshole. Sorry you had fall back on your wits like that. Wish there were more of us.
I could use her to move some landscape rocks in the back yard.
Girl is going to suffer a prolapse doing that.
chiropractors everywhere thank .....Jerry
Impressive even with straps used to lift them, the Dinnie stones are close to 750 lbs combined.
I just hear Andrew Dice Clay saying "Her uterus fell out. OH!"
I remember an old cowboy telling me once, "Quickest way I know to get old is to lift stuff."Yup.
I kiddingly referred to the family cattle ranch as "El Rancho de Lifting Heavy Objects".I was kidding but my back and knees took me seriously. They're all 3 shot.
Roger that, Rob.Looking at X-rays of my back are enough to make a normal person weep.When I was younger, I hadn't a clue how to lift properly, and also never dreamed of the consequences that awaited me later in life.Tim in AK
Tim- Packing a saw around for a career will do that to you. Thank you for your service.
I spent my life in a foundry. I was weighing up a heat for melting, and had to add weight to the scale. I was picking up slugs from a tub and dropping them into a different tub on the scale. The last one I picked up and dumped into the tub was just over 300 pounds. After that, I got a V belt, and a washer, and used that with a hoist to wrap around the slugs, and pick them up with the hoist. And like you, no wonder our bodies are fucked up now. But the federal government wants us to work until we are older to collect full social security. Hell, I am 60, and my body is worn completely out. It would be different for those who work behind a desk, or supervising those who do the actual work. I would rather they would have just put the money plus my employers match, into good mutual funds, and let me retire when I figured I had enough. I have no doubt that I would have been able to retire at around 50-55, with the money that I paid in, from the time I turned 16.Or, I wish that someone had told me that working as hard as I did for a living would cause my body to wear out so badly, and told me to go to college. I had the chance, like most of us did, I just didn't have any idea of why I wanted to go other than to play football, which is not a good enough reason to go to college.
Thought she was going to bust a nut
But the question all of us really want to know is, can she make sammiches? I’m sure she can fetch a can of beer, you know like a half keg!!
You tell the lady, "Hey, make me a sammich while you're in the kitchen." She'll get your rocks off. And not in a good way.
