    You try to open a tightly sealed jar, and accidentally crush it.

    That almost happened a couple minutes ago. icon_lol.gif

    That's a great spin on shoddy container products.

    It's also a great reason why they should make pickle jars with thicker glass. icon_lol.gif

    How did you "almost" crush the jar? I think with glass this is a binary. It's crushed, or it isn't. Now, did it crack? A shard break off at the jar lip?

    That's the only thing I can think of...

    When you try to pick something up that used to be heavy and then suddenly you're falling on your ass because you anticipated the lift to require more force than it actually did. Like my bed. Picked it up and was like "wow, this thing's fucking light compared to a year and a half ago."

    Or when you're working with a bunch of pussies who insist on using the bussing carts to take a small stack of pans between dishwashing rooms and they get impressed when you grab all 14 of them and just fucking carry them like a normal person... Oh and when you hold them all with one hand and a shoulder so you can move the stanchions. Apparently the female co-workers were getting wet for that.


    You really notice that much difference in strength? Great! With all your persistence you're gonna be the incredible hulk.

    I have never been all that strong, but Dad taught us how to lift and move things as efficiently as possible.

    Was working in a department store and had a table to move. It had a shelf underneath so I tipped it on the side and stepped inside and lifted it on my shoulders. We had a German man who was around the store a lot and when he saw me he said, "That is so European!" Ernst was a kick.

    ...and it makes arguments more interesting...

    I still want to know how you "almost" crush a pickle jar.....sounds like getting "a little" pregnant.

    Oh, and for the record, you can never be too strong.

    Careful with that. You'll end up getting stuck with all the grunt work.

    Reminds me of one day a couple of years ago. We had about five tons of rock cores to load onto a truck. My colleagues showed up with a couple of wobbly little carts that they loaded up, rattled across the parking lot, and unloaded into the truck. It was going to take all day. I just started picking up the boxes and carrying them. Got almost half the truck loaded before it shamed a couple of the other guys into action. (Of course, If I'm in charge of something like that, I just rent a forklift for an hour, instead of paying everybody's salary for a whole day.)

    Day 1? That was some quick results. icon_razz.gif

    With my build and genetics I am highly unlikely to ever get TOO strong, if there is such a thing. One can only dream.

    it wasn't so much results as My body wasn't used to being used that way. Now, when i worked down at the go kart track i used to lift the karts up by the front end with customers still in them to drag them back onto the track. That was always funny to watch their faces, heheh.

    It takes a strong mind to build strong muscles. icon_wink.gif

    You're in a parking lot. I would have moved the truck closer icon_smile.gif

    icon_neutral.gif As if the details of this story were of any importance, the "lot" was really one of those little european alleys with bollards blocking it, into which the truck could not fit. There were smart cars and motorcycles parked in it. I suppose I could have said "courtyard." icon_rolleyes.gif
