    Apprentice stabs concrete - GIF

    Apprentice stabs concrete. Not sure if staged. Still funny.

    I'm torn.

    Part of me says that level of dumb can be dangerous.
    Another part of me says that someone willing to work that hard can get a whole mountain of work done if you keep an eye on them to keep the pointy end of the stick in the right direction.

    Promised his new McCollough chain saw would cut 6 cords of wood per day, Marcel LaFleur left the shop expecting his new tool to make life much better. A couple weeks later Marcel returned the chainsaw to the dealer complaining he could cut no more than 4 cords per day. The dealer took the saw, primed it, and gave the pull cord a yank. It started right up. Marcel jumped back in amazed horror exclaiming, "What is that awful noise?!"

    Good to avoid White Finger. Not so good for avoiding Beat Shoulder. (Which is a lot worse)
