Long Toot Thread, Chainsaw Show more
Thoughts on loading for a chainsaw operator.
Cutting logs for 7 hours. The chainsaw operator is wearing all kinds of safety gear so doesn't want to be doing anything other than saw logs. As much as possible I'll be doing everything else. That includes:
Clamping branches into a Workmate;
Bungee-cording oversized branches to keep them stable;
Selecting branches unusable for firewood for the bonfire (In Liverpool we say bommie);
Long toot thread. Bricks. Show more
Thoughts on moving 2 half-palates of broken bricks into a skip.
So I started off throwing underarm both the whole and part bricks and using my left and right hands. I was having to get quite close to be accurate and making an effort to throw them.
Picking up the bricks and keeping them at shoulder height was the better technique. From further away and with less effort I can putt the bricks, like shot putt.
I see @Shrigglepuss starred my post and I see all of his pictures have descriptions. So the problem isn't at my end.
I think I'll have a rule only to boost pics if there is a description. Gotta have solidarity with screen reader users.

Part of my first full time job was management information. Always the data supplied had to fit the decisions already taken. My second full time job was almost entirely tabulating falsified information to a government body which had requested falsified information, trained by accountancy firm auditing the falsified information. So now I'm over 40 and cleaning windows.
Expanding on 2). No end of people told me as a child "study maths, you'll get a good job" (never from people working in recruitment). The same kind of person regards statistics as a system of organised lying, accountancy as a complicated way of being criminal, consistently fabricate data. I need some catharsis on this.
This unimposing building allowed me to take out three #books at a time twice a week, until I finished the books in the children's section and they gave me five tickets that let me take out any book. I wouldn't be who I am without this service - please support your local #library. #LlanilltudFawr #LlantwiMajor
For my mission of reading a book from every country of the world, I am currently at Angola and reading "A General Theory of Oblivion" by José Eduardo Agualusa. I'm half-way through it and it's soooo good! Definitely recommend it (if the second half keeps up, but I have a good feeling).
Books I'm most desperate to read but don't know if they exist.
1) Concise history of domestic appliances.
2) Study of why British people have a great respect for the study of mathematics yet complete contempt for people who use mathematics.

When I was a teenager I wanted to go on to develop consumer electronics. Unfortunately I couldn't get into the universities or courses I wanted. I feel like developing an interest in the history of domestic appliances as a hobby would give me something interesting to do. I guess I'll see how it goes.

Need to get back on my dishwasher content. Researching dishwasher development was one of the few things this year that made me feel worthwhile, yet I'm already back on working 6-7 days a week and staring at the wall when I have time to rest.

"In March 1998, a student in Georgia was suspended from school forwearing a Pepsi shirt on the school’s Coke Day: ‘School officials say the shirt was an insult to Coca-Cola executives visiting from Atlanta andruined a school picture in which students spelled out “Coke” ’ (Anon, 1998). Exclusive contracts with corporations such as Coca-Cola are often devised to ensure that the company only need pay out promised monies if schools maintain target sales, thereby providing institutions with financial incentives to promote the corporation’s products (Molnarand Morales, 2000)."
