Where bad choices make good stories
The car hauler backing onto the street seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen.The two drywallers could have gotten done in a half a day what it took me two weeks to do with a man lift, which cost me double what those guys would probably have charged me.
Not the US so likely not an issue
Could be US. I've hired Hispanics to do just that kind of work for me. Even bought a pair of those lifts for 1 guy to do it. Pretty impressive what they can do.
I think Fidel meant the car hauler thing. Looks like Japan -- they're driving on the wrong side of the road, and all the new cars are white. (There's this Japanese thing about buying white cars "so when we sell it the new owner can easily paint it whatever color he wants" -- but the used cars never get repainted and you just have a fuckload of white cars all over the place.)
#5 20 years ago I had a house built, not a huge place, but had high ceilings. The dry wallers said doing it off stilts is way faster than screwing with scaffolding

I want to hear the sound from #7.
It's Yakety Sax.
#9. I've made a lot of flights in helicopters, none would roll. Physics laws say the rotor should collapse. I believe in following the law.
That doesn’t have a rigid rotor all blades are mounted in individual bearings, they lead , lag , flap, droop independent there for it can do rolls, we did them in blackhawks back in the early 1980s
Depends on the design of the rotor system, but they can roll
There are a few helicopters that can go inverted more than once.
Laws of Physics say a bumblebee can't fly either. No one told the helicopter or the bee.
October 23, 1968. A CH-53A helicopter flown by Marine Lt.Col. Robert Guay and Sikorsky pilot Byron Graham performed a series of loops and rolls over Long Island Sound.This was the first time a helicopter performed these maneuvers. It was made possible by the fully articulated rotor of the H53.According to my instructor at AF tech school, the airframe was overstressed and had to be retired.
I know nearly nothing about helicopters, but is is possible to change the pitch of the rotor blades to eliminate lift? You'd fall like a rock as you rolled, but maybe if you have enough altitude to work with?-Just A Chemist
I think the BO-105 (Germany's tank killer) was the first to do a loop. My understanding (medical flight crew, NOT a pilot) was the rigid rotor system allowed it. A flexible rotor system (Bell, Sikorsky) can't do it (would shear the tail boom).
I knew some Air-Evac folks back in the day. They would get called to stand by at some of the AH64 test flights. The pilots would get told what some of the tests involved and the typical reaction was: “You gotta be shitin’ me! I have to see this!”
I flew the MBB 105 (civilian), and yeah, the rigid rotor was awesome. Loops, barrel rolls, and split s got the juices going. Scary the first time.
#1 As is said, no good deed goes unpunished.
What's going on in #1?
#2 In my job I used to have to visit all kinds of factories. I used to love watching industrial robots working and automated systems generally.#8 If my hair was such a constant nuisance as that I would just go and get a buzz cut.
#1 I tell you, you try to be nice to someone and there's always someone ready to misinterpret your actions.
Look at this and remember: There are hundreds of thousands of Millennials who can't parallel-park a BMW between 2 cars parked 30 feet apart.
What's happening in #1?
The little dog inside the car attacked the guy that opened the door for the woman.
Stunt Chopper maybe...???
AH-64 Apache. https://youtu.be/KMStsOn2I-MHe does the full package.
#1 no good deed goes unpunished.#2 I fed the squirrels peanuts by hand when I was a kid. There were pictures of me with ones sitting on my head or shoulders munching away. We ran out of peanuts once so I stuck my finger in the peanut butter. LOL Did I tell you their teeth are sharp as razor blades?tallowpot
I am in desperate need of laughter tonight. Thank you so much for all the work you do in providing it. :)
