Any updates, Mel? Is it still happening or are you cancelling due to lack of interest. Because I'm still interested but would like a heads up if you plan on cancelling.


I'd agree... might be tuff for me to show, I'm sure I can, but at this point, with what is it 3 people? I might just assume its a no go...

Theres alot of interesting people (usually the long term ones) who perform menial jobs for shit wage. I once worked with a guy who had a PhD in math and all he did was drive forklift and do grunt work, he told me that one day he just burned out and didn't want to do it anymore and wanted something easy, left the school he was teaching at and joined the blue collar gang.


There is a certain satisfaction in working with your hands, one of the jobs I enjoyed the most was working in a warehouse. I love what I do now, but you can't turn it off when you go home and it frays your life in a lot of ways that are hard to quantify.

If you've ever wondered why golf is such a popular sport in the white collar world it's because its hours and hours of manual work that fits your schedule. These guys just need to release the pressure and forget about what they do for a while.

I would have to agree. Even though I'm probably going to be working in the IT field, plans are to do mechanics and auto body for fun. there is something to be said about working with your hands...

More like Volun-Shackled. They didn't tell me, they just clamped that bear trap onto my leg and chained it to my desk. Than said, see you next week.

If you had the financial security to leave an ice cold bucket of cocks on your desk for them to find on Monday it would be epic.
