    How to use a tape measure video

    This is the subject of a thread over on HSM. Apparently the dumbing-down of America, and millennials in particular, is so advanced that Home Depot is now producing video tutorials on how to use a tape measure and how to hammer nails. Here's the article that started it all...

    which contains a sample, the tape measure video.

    Whoa. That was a real video, not a parody.

    The scariest thing is that there's one for operating a circular saw and another for a power drill. Can you imagine giving a circular saw to someone so dumb he needs one of these videos?

    Yeah, I guess you could say that at least a tape measure is probably not harmful. Anyway, the tape measure video rivals an old favorite of mine: How to Boil Water.

    As a former Home Crapo employee in the lumber department, I can tell you that those videos are real and that I had to show MANY people (mostly younger, but not always) how to use tape measures, saws, drills, etc., even the claw end of a hammer once. I liked to point out that "these are people we sell power tools to". I also liked to point out that they where also the same ones that necessitated the need for 20 safety warnings on hammers, screwdrivers and wrenches.

    Scary. But, they're probably better than the millennials who won't even pick up a hammer.

    Here's a gem. Found on the net, but re-titled by me: "Millennial takes out the trash."
