TOOLS EXPLAINED

DRILL PRESS : A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it.

WIRE WHEEL : Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, ‘Oh sh*t’

DROP SAW : A portable cutting tool used to make studs too short.

PLIERS : Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation of blood-blisters.

BELT SANDER : An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs.

HACKSAW : One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board principle… It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion, and the more you attempt to influence its course, the more dismal your future becomes.

VISE-GRIPS : Generally used after pliers to completely round off bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the palm of your hand.

OXYACETYLENE TORCH : Used almost entirely for lighting on fire various flammable objects in your shop. Also handy for igniting the grease inside the wheel hub out of which you want to remove a bearing race..

TABLE SAW : A large stationary power tool commonly used to launch wood projectiles for testing wall integrity.

HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK : Used for lowering an automobile to the ground after you have installed your new brake shoes, trapping the jack handle firmly under the bumper.

BAND SAW : A large stationary power saw primarily used by most shops to cut good aluminum sheet into smaller pieces that more easily fit into the trash can after you cut on the inside of the line instead of the outside edge.

TWO-TON ENGINE HOIST : A tool for testing the maximum tensile strength of everything you forgot to disconnect.

PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER : Normally used to stab the vacuum seals under lids or for opening old-style paper-and-tin oil cans and splashing oil on your shirt; but can also be used, as the name implies, to strip out Phillips screw heads.

STRAIGHT SCREWDRIVER : A tool for opening paint cans. Sometimes used to convert common slotted screws into non-removable screws and butchering your palms.

PRY BAR : A tool used to crumple the metal surrounding that clip or bracket you needed to remove in order to replace a 50 cent part.

HOSE CUTTER : A tool used to make hoses too short.

HAMMER : Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate the most expensive parts adjacent the object we are trying to hit.

UTILITY KNIFE : Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly well on contents such as seats, vinyl records, liquids in plastic bottles, collector magazines, refund checks, and rubber or plastic parts. Especially useful for slicing work clothes, but only while in use.

ADJUSTABLE WRENCH: aka “Another hammer”, aka “the Swedish Nut Lathe”, aka “Crescent Wrench”. Commonly used as a one size fits all wrench, usually results in rounding off nut heads before the use of pliers. Will randomly adjust size between bolts, resulting in busted buckles, curse words, and multiple threats to any inanimate objects within the immediate vicinity.

Son of a bitch TOOL : Any handy tool that you grab and throw across the garage while yelling ‘Son of a b*tch’ at the top of your lungs. It is also, most often, the next tool that you will need.

    I tried reading an article in the WSJ about a dedicated home cook who decided to buy a large cut of beef and cut it up into the various cuts we all know, love and find in the butcher aisle. Her exploration of the topic motivated her to pursue formal training but she was unable to find a job right away. She got her big break when a local meat cutting place called her urgently to come in for work to cover for the regular meat cutter who had INADVERTENTLY STABBED HIMSELF IN THE BLADDER.

    That was in the first few paragraphs of the story. As much as I wanted to read and learn more that idea refused to leave my head and I was forced to click the x and stop reading.

  2. Paula recently worked a shift in the ER as triage nurse. A guy came in with a dog bite to the face. There was a big towel covering his face, soaked with blood. The PA on duty was talking to the guy and she was entering data on her computer when she looked closer and saw a chunk of skin poking out from the towel. She mentioned it to the PA an returned to entering data. When she looked up again the towel was off and she just about puked. Remember that movie Face Off? Yeah this guy had lost about a quarter of his face. He was shipped off to a bigger hospital for plastic surgery to work on him. It was fairly recent so no follow up yet.

    Pit bull mixed with some equally scary dog who had human flesh for his last meal.

  3. Thank you for that lovely early morning storytime Jimbro!

    Yikes.

  4. JimMom update: Go more info from my sister yesterday. Even with treatment she is having pretty severe abdominal pain and probably because of treatment having a lot of neuropathic pain in her legs. She has mentioned these to me in the past when I’ve visited but it’s become progressively worse. Her oncologist has given her various medications to help with all of these but it’s taking it’s toll. Entering into treatment we knew that it would not be a “cure” so none of this should be surprising. Because it is happening to someone I love it’s hard to view this with any clinical detachment. My mother, who is probably the most rational of us on this matter, has decided to decline further chemotherapy. Because I am not Nostra-fucking-damus I have no idea how much longer she will be with us or if she will be mobile and coherent during this time. I’ll be heading down there later this week after I wrap up some work stuff. 5 hours down and 5 back is rough but I just need to get in the zone and do it as many times as possible.

    Your thoughts and prayers do mean a lot to me, really, I appreciate it. You might think a physician would be more accepting and understanding of death as a part of life but I guess I am the weird exception that proves some unknown rule. I specifically chose a specialty that did not involve death probably for some deep rooted childhood trauma or event that remains unknown to me.

    I’ll add occasional updates, not nearly as long or expository in nature as time goes by.

  5. Been up since 0230 Mare, couldn’t sleep even with using Jedi mind tricks and that SEAL breathing technique so I shaved and showered and got the coffee going early.

  6. Jimbro, *nervous this will sound wrong* You going to see your Mom is excellent and regardless of the time and hassle and lost work go as often as you can or stay as long as you can. You won’t regret it…later.

    Prayers up and when a death is “one of our own” it’s never the same.

  7. Jimbro, my brother-in-law chose podiatry because there are rarely life-or-death situations with it, and he’s made a huge difference with clubfoot surgeries alone.

    Prayers for safe travels for you and pain relief for her.

  8. Jimbro, my prayers with you and yours during this. Lost my dad when I was 21, lost friends in Afghanistan and Iraq, and other friends to cancer, suicide, and vehicle accidents… It is never clinical. Nor should it be.

    The only thing I can say is to quote C. S. Lewis, “when pain is to be born, a little courage helps more than much knowledge, a little human sympathy more than much courage, and the least tincture of the love of God more than all.”

    Oh yeah… And fuck cancer

  9. Warning: earworm

  10. Off to deal with this PITA telescope and hopefully leave work in time to vote today. Squishy hugs all around.

  11. Prayers for Jimbro and family.

  12. Jury duty. Yay.

  13. I need those of you who have used neti pots to vouch for them. I am desperate to help this fucking sinus infection I have had for days. My face is in such pain. I just remembered about salt water gargle and that helped my upper throat quite significantly.

  14. Prayers for jimbro and mom. It’s a weird place to be to be “supportive” when family member chooses the non-intervention route. Been there.

  15. this post is a big fucking tease, isn’t it?

    /glares are Roamy

  16. we just bought a toe-kick saw.

  17. Wish I had read the thread first…sorry Jimbro. Your Mom is going to love you being there.

  18. This post had me laughing pretty hard. I especially loved ‘Swedish nut lathe’ because it’s also the name of that thing Hotspur’s mom does for a nickel.

  19. No neti pot, but when I was crippled by the tree pollen right after our bad polar vortex winters, I — in desperation — used a fluid syringe to irrigate my sinuses with warm salt water. Cleared out the massive chunks of hardened booger.

    But it wasn’t an infection, so I don’t know if it would have helped with one.

  20. My sister in San Antonio says their one case of corona virus was released from the hospital and then tested positive again afterwards. This person celebrated at the mall food court after leaving the hospital. So they closed the mall and everybody is freaking out.

  21. Probably ate at the Panda Express

  22. Jimbro, find me a doctor who’s “good with” death and cares nothing for “thoughts and prayers” and I’ll show you a doctor I want nothing to do with. You’re carrying a heavy burden well. Spend as much time with her as you can and let the rest take its own course.

  23. In my mind it’s easy to see the logic of her choice but in my heart, well, it’s a bit rough

  24. I use a neti pot all the time. Really helps clear out the sinus/sinuses/whatthefuckeveryoucallit. Not one of those that look like a teapot, but a squirt bottle.

    Now the warning labels say you have to boil the water and let it cool off. You can drink the water, but don’t you dare shoot it up your nose, you might get an infection.

    Warning labels go too far, sometimes.

  25. TWO-TON ENGINE HOIST : A tool for testing the maximum tensile strength of everything you forgot to disconnect.

    Negative battery straps to the frame, ugh. They never come off easy.

  26. Thoughts and prayers, Jimbro.

  27. Stopped on the way to work and bought Sumo oranges. They’re$2.99/lb and the small ones. I brought them in a week or two ago and preached the Gospel Of Sumo. It was received favorably.

  28. *tips hat to blog*

  29. do you have to dress in diapers and eat them in a ring?

  30. I wish for you and your mom to be comfortable.

  31. You can drink the water, but don’t you dare shoot it up your nose, you might get an infection.

    ————

    Different environments. Things that wouldn’t survive in your stomach will flourish if in your sinuses. Plus, closer proximity to your brain, so more chance for something bad to happen.

  32. Lots of bugs are like that. You can’t get genital warts on your hands (because they need a perpetually wet environment), but you can carry the virus there for a few moments.

  33. Which is, of course, why they can sometimes live in the throat and give you esophageal cancer.

  34. Cancer killed it. Fuck cancer.

  35. The stupidity it burns.

    Young voters by and large don’t care about zoning regulations or occupational licensing unless they are already conservative or libertarian.

  36. Try to explain commercial/residential/agricultural to a young voter and get a blank stare. Farms are where farms are, businesses are where businesses are, and houses are where houses are. It will take an hour for it to sink in that they are where they are because of a law, and that such things matter with regard to the wealth, noise, and safety of a place.

  37. I have considered running for one of the trustee slots for my township specifically to have a voice in zoning. As in, BANANA. We’ve got shopping a few minutes away in any direction, no heavy industry, no liquor stores, and nearly everything is residential/agricultural. By virtue of that, crime is low, hunting is good and fairly safe, and it’s quiet other than a couple of busy roads. I don’t think we even have a traffic signal in the township. No multi-family residences (trailer parks/apartments/etc).

    And that’s exactly how it ought to stay. Places like this are precious and rare and necessary for the state and the country. Bring in businesses or heavy industry and you might bring in some wealth, but you’d change the character of the place, add noise and traffic, and eventually that money will bring in more people and the money and people will vote all the farmers that live here right off their family land, either with usage restrictions that end the cattle and pig operations, or banning needed chemical amendments and so on.

    No.

  38. Mrs. Pupster has a deviated septum and uses her netipot when the congestion gets bad, more often though she will use a disposable saline can of cheezewiz thingy, less mess.

    I can’t stand the water up my nose feeling so I’ve just powered through with Sudafed.

  39. America was meant to be a bunch of different communities working together. Not a homogeneous mix of clones of coastal urban areas. Abandoning the idea of local solutions to local needs has been a massive disaster on every conceivable level.

    LOL

  41. I raff’d

  42. You can’t get genital warts on your hands (because they need a perpetually wet environment),

    Is this where sunning your taint comes in handy?

  43. Yes, actually. Just don’t burn it. It’s (probably) never seen the sun and can’t handle much of it.

  44. Okay, I found some sumo oranges at the fancier grocery chain we have here. It’s definitely a better ‘tangerine’, that’s for sure but I’ve had better oranges from Aldis (and that’s only a 3-4 week span straddling Dec/Jan).

    *I prefer oranges over tangerines.

  45. Has anyone here eaten kimchi? Is it any good? How does it compare to say….sauerkraut?

  46. I have. It’s okay, but I don’t like spicy combined with pickle-type tangyness. A little acidity is fine, but the pickle+hot doesn’t appeal to me.

  47. Thanks leon. Found some at the local grocery and thought I’d give it a try.

  48. Kimche is the devil. And I really enjoy sauerkraut if it’s quality stuff.

  49. It’s worth a try. My wife likes it, but I’d rather just have kraut.

  50. Friends gave us some homemade kimchi. Smelled bad, but tasted really good.

  51. Kimchi is good stuff

  52. I like Kimchi. I had tons of it in Hawaii.

  53. They have ‘mild’ and ‘spicy’. I went with the mild fully expecting it to be on the spicy side for my tender plumbing.

  54. you know what tastes good with kimchi?

    Corona

  55. Haven’t opened it yet as I’m working up the nerve like I do most new culinary trials.

  56. CAULK!

  57. Try to explain commercial/residential/agricultural to a young voter and get a blank stare. Farms are where farms are, businesses are where businesses are, and houses are where houses are. It will take an hour for it to sink in that they are where they are because of a law, and that such things matter with regard to the wealth, noise, and safety of a place.

    Unfortunately most younger “conservatives” are libertarians, not conservative, and so think zoning regulations are the debbil.

  58. I usually test new stuff on Mr. B.. If he doesn’t die, I’ll give it a try.

  59. Unfortunately most younger “conservatives” are libertarians, not conservative, and so think zoning regulations are the debbil.

    “No zoning” might be okay in theory, but that’s where it ends. Zoning is either your defense or someone else’s weapon. When the big-pockets investor turns the farm next door into McMansions and then he and all his tenants lobby to shut down your donkey farm by way of noise ordinance, you might just might wise the fuck up. Keep the other guy out by zoning regs and it never gets to this point.

    Local communities have a right to determine some collective standards in order to maintain peace and order. Otherwise you have the assholes who ruin it for everyone else. Of course, it can go the other way as well.

  61. Killer workout. Lunch with Erin.

  62. When I want well-informed social commentary, I go to uneducated, washed-up singers from the early 70’s.

  63. I’m also saying – I don’t think she want to be play the game of “whose kids turned out better”.

  64. There’s the girl who is now a boy, and Elijah Blue who … is a pretty unknown musician.

  65. Poor Chastity. If I were chick and Cher were my model for womanhood I’d get an addadicktome too.

  66. I dunno. If CHer is your mom, do you really want to be in a relationship with a woman?

  67. Solid point.

  68. These days, though, I pretty much assume any kid raised in Hollywood was molested. Explains a lot.

  69. Maybe. Even if not, they’ve been raised by degenerates, most likely.

  70. Leon, you can’t just “zone out” McMansions. I get what you are concerned about, but zoning is very complicated, and is influenced by a hundred or so years of civil case law.

    I applaud you for wanting to get involved, but be prepared for a steep learning curve.

  71. No, you can’t, but you can limit how small parcels can be split, how often they can be split, or the number of residences that can co-exist on a single parcel, or all three.

  72. Not exactly.

  73. Poor Cher, dumb, lonely and 2 mental kids is no way to go through life.

  74. Why do people always say they’re running five minutes late, when they’re really more like fifteen, and fifteen when they’re really more like a half hour?

  75. No, they’re not 12th-century weirdos. Why do you ask?

    Read the whole list.

  76. The same inability to track time that leads them to be late to begin with.

  77. Greetings all. If you see any bits of Nashville flying around please send them back as we attempt to reassemble.

  78. Late people are people who think their time is more important than yours.

    If you are late all of the time, it’s you. You are the asshole. You didn’t plan well, you didn’t think of the most rudimentary things that could slow you down. You didn’t get up early enough or think ahead…just a little to not inconvenience someone else.*

    Obviously Drs. don’t count, they overbook and then get an emergency or take more time than the standard 8 minutes with someone and the whole schedule gets screwed up.

    *notice I said “all the time” traffic, kids, life gets in the way, but that should be the exception not the rule.

    Can you tell it’s one of my pet peeves?

  79. My 19 acres in Kazoo was subject to a stack of zoning regulations. Ag land in Kalamazoo can only be split once in any 10-year period, and could not be used for heavy industry or multi-unit housing of any kind. No apartment building, no trailer park. And that’s before you get to the requirements for a septic system for even one house to be built, and without which you couldn’t reside there legally. I asked about composting toilets, even, and was basically told I’d be arrested if I disposed of human waste on the land.

  80. What?

    Hope everything is nailed down at your place.

  83. That should make for an interesting conversation

  84. That brings up a weird thing that occurred to me while reading Altered Carbon. Human consciousness is digitized technologically in that setting, right? And you can be “sleeved” into any ready body, even a synthetic (robot) or virtual body. The last of those options is basically a full-immersion, perfect simulacrum of a real or imagined place, and you experience it with the entire range of senses that your virtual body has. The virtual body can be male or female, but does have to be at least mostly true to normal human or you can go schizoid.

    And yet, in this world, there are still real, physical brothels. Why? I’m hoping there’s an eventual good answer for that, because it doesn’t make a ton of sense for me that there would still be brothels, at least not cheap ones. Maybe the super rich and decadent might still pay for actual, real-world, genuine-risk whores, but when a virtual-bodied whore or AI whore are on offer, who would bother?

  85. Prayers for you and your Mom, Jimbro. Thanks for checking in GMLand.

  86. GMLAND!!!! Seriously, is everything okay with you and yours??

  87. Glad you’re safe, Glans. Sorry no one’s even reporting on your disaster because it happened to unpeople in Flyoverland.

  88. will use a disposable saline can of cheezewiz thingy, less mess.
    —–
    I use that when I need it. When I’m so congested I can’t breathe/sleep I’ll flush with saline and then use a single squirt of Afrin or the generic version so I can sleep. It lasts long enough to get a good night’s sleep and the next day my nose leaks like a faucet

  89. Oh wow, I had no idea it had happened. I recognize some of those places. Holy crap.

    Gland used to be a good piece south of that down in Franklin, glad he checked in.

  90. Today’s panicking update. Powdered Milk. Who knew it was still a thing? We got a pallet of beans, pallets of Ramen, and a water truck. Water truck is front to back, two pallet stacks of water. Usually 44 pallets of 42 cases of water. 2 pallets of 6XGallon. 2 pallets of 40 8 Oz.

  91. Well, time to put on my HazMat suit and go to Costco.

  92. The Tennessee tornadoes are being reported here. Twenty-something people dead.

  94. Bloomberg licking his fingers at the buffet? UGH. Reminds me when I worked in the bakery, guy came in to buy donuts for his office and would lick his fingers after putting a couple in a box, lick, choose a couple more, lick lick. Then he’d change his mind, put two back, choose two others…big ol’ LICK! (yes, I went out and tossed the two he put back.)

    And this is how ebola spreads.

  95. OMG, pupster, that is too funny.

    I saw some people riffing on the panic and one guy sticking a maxi pad over his face/mouth. Sticky side down. With wings. *snort*

  96. I never eat from the botulism buffet at work. Family get together…hard no.

  97. It’s always awkward showing up late for any potluck at work. Food sitting at room temp, serving utensils covered with food and laying on the table, uncovered crock pots and mayonnaise … so much mayonnaise.

    nervous laugh … I’m just here for a cookie, thanks!

  98. I encounter buffets around the holidays.

    I bring Purell.

  99. Praying for your mom and family, Jimbro.

    TiFW mom was officially admitted to hospice today. She has told everyone that she wants to go. Thankfully, she isn’t in excruciating pain, but she is requesting pain meds now. She has basically been immobile, and the skin on her bottom is close to breaking – have to keep an eye on that, and hospice is requesting a low-air mattress to relieve pressure.

    Nephew is driving down this weekend; Paul and Rebecca will be flying in next weekend. Dad’s 88th birthday is Friday.

    Both of Mom’s sisters have family members in the hospital, so they don’t know if they will be able to see her again. I have an Android phone and a Kindle here; my aunts have iPhones; I don’t know enough about technology to figure out a way to get some face time between them. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

  100. I think there is a Facebook app that acts like Facechat. Mi familia uses it to talk to cousins in Oki and Spain. FB portal?

  101. I always have Purell in my pocket. Wet Ones in my wallet.

  102. You’re a good daughter, Teresa.

    I hope everything goes as well as it can.

  103. Looks like Bloomberg spent $500 million for nothing.

    What a dope.

  104. the 4th largest city in the country has no zoning. I think it gives it character.
    Prayers to yours Jimbro

  105. In addition to what Mini-me calls “the project that must not be named”, I had training today. It is mandatory for my particular job and several others, and the class is full with some people waitlisted. They have 40 of us crammed into a classroom, one of those with 8-foot tables, two chairs to a table.

    The woman at the table next to me brought so much stuff, I was wondering if we were summiting Mt. Everest instead of taking training. In addition to the class binder full of women of Powerpoint charts and the class textbook, she had an enormous bag of holding backpack with all kinds of shit. First, she had on an undershirt, a long-sleeved shirt, a fluffy vest, a fluffy down jacket, and a fluffy scarf. It was in the 60’s today. (I was wearing a 3/4 sleeve shirt because sometimes it gets cold in the training basement. No jacket.) She finally shed the jacket after the first hour but kept the scarf firmly wrapped around her neck and lower face. She had her computer, earbuds for her phone, a big pot of lip balm, protein bars, Kind bars, almonds, Snickers, a Tupperware container with a cake donut, something which was either peanut butter or hummus that she ate with crackers, a big thermos of coffee, a big water bottle, a book to read, a notebook for notes, an umbrella, her purse, and I forget what else. Now mind you, she has an allotment of four feet of table and a chair. I felt sorry for her tablemate because she was encroaching enough on my space, and all the rustling through the backpack was distracting.

    $20 and did you bring enough for everybody.

  106. Biden WINS. lol. This is so funny.

  107. Howdy, VMan.

  108. I heard coughs at Costco. One millennial dude was wearing a mask.

  109. Multiple people wearing masks at work. Lots of gloves. Today, I was screamed at by multiple people because we are out of canned chicken. In Club and online. Unhinged woman was screaming at me. Riki, was getting screamed at because we don’t have access to order information.

  110. Wow, it’s amazing how she just happened to find the employee whose responsibility is maintaining the canned chicken inventory.

    Did you tell her to wait a moment and you’ll start pulling cans of chicken out of your ass for her?

    People who vent unreasonably at hapless employees just because they can, should be shot into the sun.

  111. Tons of canned meat on display, but I didn’t see any prepping or panic shopping. Line moved fast and nobody seemed upset. Even chatted with the cashier a bit.

  112. I have an Android phone and a Kindle here; my aunts have iPhones; I don’t know enough about technology to figure out a way to get some face time between them. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    When I deploy, the wife and I use Google Hangouts. Works with both Android and iOS. The only thing seems to be, for some reason, you want the devices used to be similar in function (i.e, use cell phone to cell phone or tablet to tablet.). Not sure why, bit cell phone to tablet got really sketchy every time. The last time I used it was 2017, so it may have improved with updates

  113. Lauraw, the pulling it out of our ass is the long term associate response that we play and replay in our heads. We have real time response. Members can go online and express their frustrations in real time. Yay. We really weren’t prepared for the level of panic. No cases in NM. People are unhinged. I’m used to being yelled at, but younger associates are not. I find myself stepping between the youngsters and the ragers. Our new manager calls me “Kiddo”. I’m older than he is.

  114. Penelope had to go to a government sponsored class today to learn how to do all the necessary payroll filings. Supposedly no more paper filings, everything is done via computer and you MUST attend the course before you can start filing the reports. Urrrrgh.

    If course, it being New Mexico, she got there and the facility had double booked the room they were supposed to use. No idea how long it took to finally find another room, but it was at least 45 minutes. Probably ended up in the lobby or the parking lot.

    I told her to ask ” If we pay our illegal alien workers to bag marijuana, in cash, how do we report it? “
