You'll have to show up with a tempting offer because they'll never be looking for work.

Now that's a freakin satisfying video.... Talk about flow. That was a young kid too that threw that cabinet together at the end. A lot of examples of people mastering effective systems.

Too much repetition can be replaced.....

Those money counters are amazing also, the kind that flip the stack of bills and then fan them.

Uh, some place without white people??

Almost everyone in that video was some shade of brown.

White kids think God put them on earth to smoke dope and play with themselves.

I don't care how many years I had to practice. I don't think I'd ever be cool with chopping an onion like that.

They don't keep that up all day and there's a lot of missing digits if they try.

I have no idea how the onion chopping guy could even see. At all... I'm about to sneeze just watching that.

And while it's neat to watch someone work quickly with a systematic workflow, if that last guy's cabinet was anywhere close to square, I'll eat my hat. Luckily it's easy to rack a box that's only held together by staples.
