      • YMBAWI: You use what ever rod you have availble for a fork at lunch hour to eat your smoked oysters, or

        you use that rod to scratch a hard to reach spot that itches.

          YMBAWI...You find a jacket on the discount rack at Wilson's leather and think to yourself, stylish welding leathers?? (yes, I thought it and even worse, I bought it! but it's never seen work duty)

          YMBAWI...You're familiar with logic of "once you start to feel the heat...take em off!"

          YMBAWI....You think bolts are for mamma's boys

          YMBAWI...you have ever wrapped more than ten feet of anything with electrical tape
          --------------------------------------------------------------------------

          I've wraped a 25' water cooled TIG lead cause the ziper on the cover broke.
          Bolts aaaarrrreeee for mamma's boys!
          I know somone who welded everyday in a black leather jacket, we called him fonzy.

          YMBAWI...You'r freinds randomly say the word weld cause they know you'll blurt out "What about welding!!!" before they even finish saying it.

            If when purchasin or renting a house, your more interested in the shop size, how many 220 volt welding outlets it has, and if they match the nema configuration of your welders plug...

            I'm currently shoping for a house and my biggest concern is wether or not the neihbors will tollerate grinding noises in the neihborhood. It's all about location, location, loction.

            YMBAWI... somone ask "Howed that burn happen?" And you reply: "O crap wered that come from?"............. Or if you'r afraid to let your snot near anything electrical for fear of arcing.

              I notice every welding rig I pass.

                  And they say theres no such thing as an all purpouse filler metal.

                  • YMBAWI...You see a weld that looks difficult to weld and you act like you'r welding it just to see if it actualy is difficult or not. (Every time I pass by a support collum and see a weld in a weird position.)

                      YMBAWI....My girlfriend-soon-to-be-fiance brought up a good point the other day. She honestly told me she never worries about me running around on her with another woman (and I never, ever, ever would. I'd have to be completely stupid to lose/hurt the best thing in my life)....it's the equipment that has her worried!! True story

                        Miller isn't a company, it's a cult.

                        • you walk into a walmart, lowes, or any place with exposed bar-joists and bridging and stand there staring at the ceiling mouth wide open looking at holes burnt thru the decking,
                          you install a cremater for funeral home and they offer you 25% discount because your half burnt up already from sparks

                          • Not only a cult - it's also philosophy!

                            I am sure with you on that description!

                            The other day I was listening to some "Old Time" radio station that was playing an "old time" Bob Dylan song, "Tangled Up in Blue". Now what pops into my mind - "What an insightful love song" or "That's profound social commentary" - oh no, I immediately picture myself checking out the inventory at my local Miller distributor!

                            Man do I need help or at least some de-programming! (The family has suggested this for the last 20 years)
