    Compared to most of the other workers you post, this guy seems to be having a bad day. Maybe new on the job?

    Ha! I know this guy, he went on to a short lived circus act called "Osgood, the Flaming Barrel Tamer"! He hooked up with P.T. Barnum but he only lasted one day of his debut in our hometown when he set the sawdust ring on fire and almost burned down Barnum's circus tent!!

    He was last seen working for American Match Co. in their quality control department testing matches. He didn't do well there either, his final test of the efficiency of their "strike anywhere" matches was to strike the matches on different types of surfaces. The last surface he tried the matches on happened to be a shipping crate for ....... yup, you guessed it, ......

    Let's just say he wasn't the "brightest flame in the campfire" .....

    Interesting technique, that’s for sure. These says I own a micro distillery and chat one barrel at a time. I’ll have to save this as a “How it’s NOT done” lesson.
