Where bad choices make good stories
Anyone know what that tool in #10 is?
Steel Dragon Tools® WC2166 1200 Watt Electric Brick Concrete Wall Chaser, Cutter & Notcher
#5 It isn't but that reminded me of the confidence course on Parris Island. I think the rope started at something like 40'. Ya started on your belly then half way switched to under the rope. Maybe head first then a switch to feet first. I saw quite a few fall. Under the rope was about 2 or 3' of nasty water and had to be 6' of mud. I saw Boots get caught talking on the start platform. Lt. called them to attention and forward march. This was 68. I wonder if they can do shit like that today. I hope so, it sure taught you ta keep your fuckin mouth shut.
They did in 77. I know that for sure.
Still did in 79
They probably did until the ladies and transexuals said it hurt their feelings... We can't have any hurt feelings in the US military anymore, don't you know!!!
Did in 83 as well.
#10 - When they say "use a factor of safety" they mean "estimate how many electricians/plumbers will be compromising the integrity of the structure during and after construction".
I prefer the term "factor of over-design"
That was my first thought also. Hope that wall is fully grouted...Had a project where the electrician saved money on hangers by boring through the bottom chords of wood trusses.
I used a standard detail specifying location, maximum diameter, maximum quantity and minimum spacing for LVL holes. Had a project where the plumbers broke every rule, on every joist, on every floor. Then, of course, they wanted me to ask the municipal inspector to give us a "waiver", as if that would keep the building up. So happy to be retired.
Have you seen YouTuber Kentucky Ballistics shooting a Thompson Center Contender chambered in 500 Nitro Express. Elephant caliber handgun. He was complaining about his hand hurt after shooting it a dozen times.
#9 Webster dictionary definition of zero fucks!
# 8 If you have ever watch a pack of baby raccoons elbow each other while eating then you know they are way rowdy.
#2: Rovers got nothing on Kamila as far as tonguin' a bone.#3: Rams got nothin' on human road-ragers.
#4 - guess who's not getting any for the next five years.
Guess who hasn't gotten any for the last 5 years...
