    A certain stage rigging guy like to start inspections by walking on the stage and yelling HEADS! Then count the number of hardhats that hit the floor as most people look up.

    minus two.

    Hard hat not secure
    You looked up right at a potentially falling object

    Have you ever noticed when your dogs water bowl is sitting outside, like on the patio for example, in clear view of the sky, there is bird poop all around it but no where else on the patio? Like they are trying to hit the bowl?

    A U.S. Census Bureau clerk (left) prepares punch cards using a pantograph similar to that developed by Herman Hollerith for the 1890 Census, while a second clerk (right) uses a 1930s key punch to perform the same task more quickly. The agency used punch cards to record and sort data using mechanical tabulators based on Hollerith’s designs until replacing them with computers and magnetic computer tape in the 1950s.

    I started my programming career using those same punch cards. I was lucky, my dad worked in an office adjacent to the school, and they had 3 of them that were idle most of the time, versus having to stay up til all hours waiting to get to the ones in the computer center on campus. Fortran 101 class, the final project was programming Conway's game of Life. Very very slow: enter code on the cards, drop off deck at the input window, wait wait wait get your printout (good ol' 15x11 fanfold continuous printouts) at the output window, find bug, rinse and repeat.
