The ***** was actually given to my twin brother and I on our 21st birthday years ago as a gag gift, which I probably should have specified. My brother didn't want it and I thought it would be fun to bring out every so often and **** with people with it.

Couple shots from autocross yesterday.

Reality TV is boring.

Most of it is really boring.

Frankly, I don't give a rat's *** about a bunch of spiky-haired orange people goofing off all summer at a rented beachfront condo in Jersey, competing to see which one of them will marry some random guy while a bunch of bratty Armenian girls endlessly bicker and catfight about how hard it is to be rich.

Or something like that.

So in case you're looking for a change of pace, here is an entire 7 hour train journey across the Norwegian countryside from Bergen to Oslo, as aired in 2009 on NRK TV:

I had to confront a coworker about cutting lockout locks that have keys today. This was the second time.



Previous jobs i've had this was grounds for immediate termination...

That's grounds for castration as far as I'm concerned. I say you feed him that lock.

I suppose you still had the current limiting breaker, so no arc flash. The shock kills you but leaves a body for cremation later.

My ex-electrician co-worker buddy is furious from your post. He feels your pain

He suggests putting an ID badge on the lock w/ contact info.

Find his bolt cutter and remove the hinge bolts. Cut the bolt heads off and glue the heads and nuts to their previous locations so it looks functional.

Here are a few kickers.
I found the cut lock laying on the ground where it was cut.
Said person who cut the lock is on the safety committee.
OSHA will be in the building tomorrow.
I had just put that lock on Thursday of last week(because the previous one got cut, by the same person(though i don't think that one had a key)), sent an email and tagged it.

He'd be fired on the spot at any job site that I've worked at, along with the person on the safety committee who authorized cutting it. You never remove a lockout unless the person who put it there authorizes it.

Many years ago, a senile old coot named Ralph (who was a hell of a great engineer in his day) tried to turn on the 10kv plate supply to an FM transmitter while I was inside it with the interlocks bypassed, doing some work on the control circuits. Fortunately, the HV supply was on a separate three-phase breaker (which I'd turned off) from the single-phase control supply (which I'd left on since it was the part of the transmitter I was diagnosing), although we didn't have lockout tags at that facility.

Scared the **** out of me when I heard the big high-voltage relays closing.

If you've never worked with high-power VHF / FM transmitters, they're pretty cool. This is what coaxial cable looks like at those power levels:




It comes on spools like this:



(That's only 500 feet of cable.)






Getting back onto the topic of shoes, I ordered a pair of these:



The Allen Edmonds just weren't doing it for me comfort-wise, and frankly, the quality of the Timberland Titans has gone to **** recently, to the point where I'm not even getting a full year out of them before the sole starts to delaminate from the body of the boot at the toe. Reviews on the Irish Setter brand (subsidiary of Red Wing) seem almost universally positive and are fulsome in their praise of both comfort and longevity, so we'll see. My biggest concern is whether it will slip through the space between the left edge of the clutch pedal and the body of the car- with my current footwear, I already have to remove the rubber pad from the clutch pedal in order to reach the dead pedal.
