    Used for fall protection mainly in industrial plants, maybe on tower work too. I have a newer one similar to that. Nothing I'd want to trust my life on. https://www.google.com/search?q=%22Lad-Saf%22&lr=&prmd=sivn&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj3-4CKsfjTAhXnrFQKHSqVBvQQ_AUICigC&biw=667&bih=331 ETA: Lad-Saf is short for Ladder Safety I guess.

    OPEC has asked a favor of other major producers: Please stop pumping so much and help us balance the market. The unusual plea was issued Thursday in the cartel's closely-watched monthly report, which found that global markets are still suffering from too much supply. The report said that balancing the market would "require the collective efforts of all oil producers" and should be done "not only for the benefit of the individual countries, but also for the general prosperity of the world economy." OPEC said that one producer in particular is to blame: The U.S., where shale producers have continued to ramp up their drilling despite lower crude prices. Dearest OPEC, Fuck you.

    Just turned 61. Except for a bad heart valve, high blood pressure and every bone in my body feeling like I've been in a train wreck I'm still a cherry. I feel my worse when I stop moving so I just keep working. I'd rather go down with both wings shot off and tail section on fire anyway. :/

    My wife would say she was "doing it for the kids". The kids need to be hungry and live without heat and electricity and they need to know WHY. It just might break the cycle of abuse. It's called tough love for a reason.

    Yeah, people tell me "it would be a different story if it was your kid". It sure as hell would. He would be in a cage in the basement shit'n in a bucket with nothing but a nightlight till he got his head out of his ass. I sat and watched my inlaws coddle and enable the wife's brother while he was addicted to crack and heroine. When they first found out they asked me what to do, I said NOTHING, don't feed him don't pay his bills don't let him live with you don't do anything. Fifteen years later he's in the ground, killed by kindness. What my wife alone spent trying to help him and his kids would've paid off our house. Fuck a bunch of junkies.

    That's a pipe mule Dave, not made by Logrite, would need wider tires for logs I'd think. It would be easy to copy tho.

    Tools make you money, invest for the long haul. If you buy some pos tool for $10 that last you a year as opposed to the higher quality tool that costs a $100 that you can pass on to the grandkids where is the savings? $10 per year for 10 years is $100 and you still have a pos disposable tool. It's just simple math to me. The good "cheap" tools and such are at estate auctions.

    A lumberjock sent me this pic. Wants to know if I want this treeroid. Do I want this treeroid? It's all the way around the tree, about 24" in diameter. I told him to leave it be for now. I'd probably be dried out before it is, the Dr. already told me not to waste money on green bananas.
