    Isn't this just an open air version of a plate compactor?

    Yup. This particular model is called the "Worker's Compensation Claim 3000."

    When tools were made to last and 'safety officers' weren't allowed near the drawing board.

    We had a guy cut a beam with a torch, then start beating on it with a sledgehammer to break the slag WITH HIS FEET UNDER IT. So when it let go it landed directly on his foot, resulting in a broke foot and a worker's compensation claim. We had a guy get dust in his eye, go to first aid, then while looking up complaining about the dust in his eye he took off his hard hat AND POURED MORE DUST INTO HIS EYE. We had a guy put up a 2x4, turn around, then immediately walked into the board he just nailed up, breaking his tooth. We had an open hole, so we had it taped off and a guy stationed there as hole watch. After a few hours guess who fell into the hole he was supposed to be watching. Many other examples. But the moral of the story is tools like that can't exist today. I'm not sure if people are dumber, but management now has to own their dumb.

    Yep ya cain't fix stupid and yes natural selection has been removed form the equation plus people in general are getting dumbed down not smartened up.
    I don't want another big asteroid to hit Earth but I am watching the very deliberate fragmentation and destruction of ALL Western cultures and societies happening right now.
    Hopefully the truly stupid will not survive what is coming but unfortunately in my experience most are damn near indestructible and collectively we pay many of them to breed.
