  2. No fancy university there, just people who need to get work done. :)

    1. That was pretty much my thought also. Always leave the actual method of getting the job done to the people who are going to do it. They will not only get it done the fastest way possible, but also the safest, since it is their hands and feet, or even lives, that are on the line.

    2. Fastest and safest? [[Citation Needed]]

      Yeah, no. Trades aren't taught in universities anyway, they're taught at vocational academies and trade schools, etc, and many of the lessons they teach were written in blood by people who thought they knew better/knew how to "get the job done".

      If you think this technique is the "safest" way of doing this... invite you to put your hand in the path of the next brick, arriving just a bit too early. That's your livelihood, gone, never to return. Knuckles destroyed, tendons jellied...

      Given the situation, this is a workable solution, but it's incredibly dangerous. When the fellows involved forget that, that's when bad shit happens.

      I have no degrees, I'm not a professional, and I do things anyway. I just don't allow myself to believe that I actually know what I'm doing, and I research exhaustively before I attempt something that could be dangerous to myself or others. Self education is still education.

      That said, assuming the people "going to do the job" actually have the knowledge and experience necessary, sure, let them do it without excessive interference.

      But there's a good reason that experienced electricians (for instance) have their work checked before they can call the job done. Because experienced electricians aren't necessarily also perfect, or perfectly scrupulous, electricians. Oversight (hopefully) compensates for a less honest society, and for human imperfections and mistakes.

      And people who "know how to get the job done" cut corners in ways that compromise their own lives and safety *all the time*. That's a big part of how cranes collapse, scaffolding falls, and why extremely experienced woodworkers make up the majority of emergency room visits among woodworkers. They "know what they're doing" or "there's plenty of safety margin" etc, etc.

      Safety doesn't make money, it costs time. And experience can lead to complacency, which leads to disregarding safety factors and risk.

      It's "not/never a problem" not wearing a safety harness/mask/other safety equipment when the OSHA rep isn't observing... until it is. Etc, etc.

      God bless, and stay safe!

  3. Perfect example of why Blacks have a hard-on for Asians and Polacks. That's cause the Asians are smarter and the Polacks are better bowlers.

    1. I would imagine most former/many current US political folks have places like this, paid for by selling out their homeland.
