One day I will tell you about the head transplant I performed on a newt.


The spring repair on my YJ held up great to the abuse I gave it at the Mounds last weekend so I know what I am doing. I hired the actual welding out because he said he knew what he was doing and I wanted him to prove it, he was right.

Simple logic could have prevented this. It takes all of 20 seconds to unhook a battery cable? And on that note a guy I work with who is master ASE certified ALWAYS asks me too come hold the battery wire when he is changing out starters and alternators because he can't unhook the battery. Jackass.

We were never allowed to wear them when I worked landscaping. One guy lost a finger in the leaf picker, and another guy get it hooked between the stake panels on a truck, while jumping out, and hung there for a while.

Well he cut it off, stuck a feeler gauge between the ring and his finger and spent over an hour with a dremel tool, cut untill it was hot then dip in a bowl of cool water. he refuses to go see a doctor although he said it does sting a bit.

I know a guy that did the same thing with a gold ring, but it got so hot it melted into a pool of gold. He now has a permanent scar around that finger, and carries a splotch of flattened gold slag in his wallet :D

When I was married my ring never came off. It had chunks in it from various mishaps. Only time I removed it for a period of time was when I got a chunk of torch slag stuck between it and my finger. Ouch!

Another tech at my work pulled the starter cable/ring/frame circuit and he now has a chunk of ass skin on his finger. Good times...

The only time I wear my wedding ring now is when we get dressed up.
This is what I do. Main reason is because it is my grandpas ring that has his wedding date and my wedding date engraved on it. I'd be a sad panda if I damaged it.

Thats why my wedding ring is a tattoo. I worked with a guy that had a steel part land on his finger and crush his ring. He started flipping out but we were able to bend it and get it off.

I will but, I hope I don't have to. I have done everything short of balling him up and carrying him there to get him to go but he still refuses.
