    OSHA inspector had a stroke.

    As the electrical manager in the plant where I work, I can tell you that it never ceases to amaze me that so many people whose job it is to do OTHER things believe they know more about things electrical than the people I have repairing damage like on the above anecdote. I have had to replace the electrical cords on 2 different battery chargers at least 3 times, each, this year already. I don't know what it is about the ground prong that offends so many people...

    Well, that's one way to do it....

    I was wondering if the garage was on US soil or not, but the 89 caddy just looks entirely unhappy, sitting there with its wheel arches stretched like that... No idea what the hell they’re repairing that needs it on the lift like that...

    History Quiz

    Teacher said: "Let's begin by reviewing some history. Who said: 'Give me Liberty, or give me Death!'?" She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Little Akio, a bright foreign exchange student from Japan, who had his hand up: "Patrick Henry, 1775," he said. "Very good! "Who said: 'Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth!'?" Again, no response except from Little Akio: "Abraham Lincoln, 1863." "Excellent!" said the teacher continuing. "Let's try one a bit more difficult. "Who said, 'Ask not what your Country can do for you, but what you can do for your Country'?" Once again, Akio's was the only hand in the air and he said: "John F. Kennedy, 1961." The teacher snapped at her class, "Class, you should be ashamed of yourselves. Akio isn't from this Country and he knows more about our history than you do." She hears a loud whisper:.. "F--k the Japs." "Who said that? I want to know right now," she angrily demanded. Little Akio put his hand up, "General MacArthur, 1945." At that point, a student in the back said, "I'm gonna puke." The teacher glares around and asks, "All right! Now, who said that?" Again, Little Akio says, "George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991." Now furious, the same student yells, "Suck this!" Little Akio jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts to the teacher. "Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!" The teacher fainted. As the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, "Damn, we’re screwed." Little Akio said quietly, "Chuck Schumer when Trump got elected in 2016." ***************

    The funeral

    A well liked cardiologist died and was given an elaborate funeral. A huge flower covered heart stood behind the casket during services. As the eulogy ended, the heart opened and the casket rolled inside. The beautiful heart then closed, sealing the deceased doctor inside, forever. At that moment, one of the mourners started to snicker and then, unable to control himself, burst out laughing. As those around him stared, he said, "I'm sorry, but I couldn't help but think of my own funeral. You see, I'm a gynecologist." At that moment, the proctologist fainted.
  8. Yep. I’ve really been ripping up this thread, haven’t I?
  9. Thanks. Im surprised I'd forgotten that feature. Makes reviewing this thread more expedient and I no longer need to worry who's watching over my shoulder.
  10. If I were a NASCAR driver, I'd be your best friend. I figure you gotta make 200+ to hold the loop.
  11. Cute, but not entirely accurate. First, I don't believe she is that clever or witty. Second, the true attribution is to a gentlemen named Russell Roberts. “Under capitalism, man oppresses man. But under socialism, it's the other way around.” ― Russell Roberts His point was that socialism has the same "Achilles Heel" - Man. Therefore, anyone touting socialism's superiority on the basis of making men more equal is just more blind rhetoric. A couple of other noteworthy quotes by Mr. Roberts: “Capitalism involves struggle, but it has an invisible heart beating at its core that transforms people's lives.” and “Welcome to the wonderful world of economics. Everything precious in life has a cost."
