Lifting Bricks


Anyone else do this type of **** on their lunch hour? Maybe twice a year we'll feel the need to assert our dominance. *click pics for movie*

Posting pictures that are too tiny for anyone to see is how you assert your dominance?

They look fine on my phone.




When I did a lot of roofing, 1 guy would bring up 2 bundles then another would bring 3 then another would bring 4.


Or stacking lumber on the deck. 2 guys last week brought an 18' 11 1/4" lvl over so of course I had to show them they were pussies and go grab the other 2

Nor mine. They're tiny thumbnails, and when you click on one, it's a tiny thumbnail on its own screen.

Just watched on my laptop. That's begging for a slipped disk, which will make you feel very undominant.

When I was a teenager I installed interlock for a landscaping company and we did the same thing. Many a load got dropped on the ground trying to be the biggest man on campus.

Re: Lifting Bricks


This is how we move bricks around at lunch time. We climb up a sixteen foot ladder with them WITHOUT holding on !

CRIPES!
That is something.
At the peak of my landscaping I could pack 1 Allan Block in each hand and stack on the wall up to 4 feet.
Now... not so much. :-D
