  • Jobs that really blow

    This reminds me of something I got forwarded awhile back...

    Worse Job Experience Contest Winner
    Steve is a commercial saturation diver for Global Divers in Louisiana. He performs underwater repairs on offshore drilling rigs. Below is an E-mail he sent to his sister. She then sent it to radio station 103.2 on FM dial in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, who was sponsoring a worst job experience contest.

    Needless to say, she won.

    Hi Sue,

    Just another note from your bottom-dwelling brother. Last week had another bad day at the office. I know you've been feeling down lately at work, so I thought I would share my dilemma with you to make you realize it's not so bad after all. Before I can tell you what happened to me, I first must bore you with a few technicalities of my job.

    As you know, my office lies at the bottom of the sea. I wear a suit to the office. It's a wetsuit. This time of year the water is quite cool.

    So what we do to keep warm is this: We have a diesel powered industrial water heater. This $20,000 piece of equipment sucks the water out of the sea. It heats it to a delightful temperature. It then pumps it down to the diver through a garden hose, which is taped to the air hose. Now this sounds like a darn good plan, and I've used it several times with no complaints. What I do, when I get to the bottom and start working, is take the hose and stuff it down the back of my wetsuit. This floods my whole suit with warm water. It's like working in a Jacuzzi.

    Everything was going well until all of a sudden, my butt started to itch. So, of course, I scratched it. This only made things worse. Within a few seconds my butt started to burn. I pulled the hose out from my back, but the damage was done. In agony I realized what had happened. The hot water machine had sucked up a jellyfish and pumped it into my suit.

    Now, since I don't have any hair on my back, the jellyfish wouldn't stick to it. However, the crack of my butt was not as fortunate. When I scratched what I thought was an itch, I was actually grinding the jellyfish into the crack of my butt. I informed the dive supervisor of my dilemma over the communicator. His instructions were unclear due to the fact that he, along with five other divers, were all laughing hysterically.

    Needless to say I aborted the dive. I was instructed to make three agonizing in-water decompression stops totaling thirty-five minutes before I could reach the surface to begin my chamber dry decompression. When I arrived at the surface, I was wearing nothing but my brass helmet. As I climbed out of the water, the medic, with tears of laughter running down his face, handed me a tube of cream and told me to rub it on my butt as soon as I got in the chamber.

    The cream put the fire out, but I couldn't poop for two days because my butt was swollen shut. So, next time you're having a bad day at work, think about how much worse it would be if you had a jellyfish shoved up your butt. More about Jobs that really blow

  • Cannabis more dangerous than tobacco, says report

    Last post: Michael on 10.06.12 at 17:44 | Started by Fire & Stone on 08.06.12

    If you search hard enough you will always find contradicting academic researches because no research can be comprehensive enough that it covers all people and identifies all possible factors. So depends on how the study is conducted, what methodology is used, what people were involved in the studies and what their preconditions are - you can repeat the same experiment and get completely opposite results.

    So the proponents of cannabis are unlikely to change their minds because some studies suggest there is a higher likelihood of getting cancer. It wouldn't change the opponents' usage habits either (presumably none or very little) so whether people are aware of the studies probably won't make a lot of difference.

  • National MP Hekia Parata ensures that the next few governments won't include National

    Last post: Michael on 10.06.12 at 16:45 | Started by Fisher on 08.06.12

    I was surprised at the back down and I think the PM had a lot to do with it... I don't think it's doing a lot of damage to National - probably more from supporters of the ratio changes who are angry at the back down in the face of public pressure than from people who are unhappy about the initial proposal. But kudos to Hekia for accepting the responsibilities. More about National MP Hekia Parata ensures that the next few governments won't include National
