D_Hall's job sounds like possibly the best job in the world (for the majority of spudders anyway)....

I am surprised you didn't ask if he tested high efficiency air launchers.

You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.

I would bet the house that jrrdw meant the question literally and not philosophically... :wink:

Let's just say that I routinely test things that register as about a 3.5 on the richter scale. I know this because it's fun to check the USGS siesmograph webpages for SoCal. Bad news is that they tend to pull the "evidence" down pretty quickly when they realize it's not really an earthquake (not a security conspiracy, the USGS just doesn't want non-quake events on their page).

In other words: I don't test M-16 replacements.

I'm not even sure what that means.

I was just insinuating that stupid people seem to cause more damage than clever people.

Overall, yes... as such people are more likely to do something that unintentionally causes damage.
However, if both wished to cause damage, I would wager the more intelligent person could make a more efficient job of it.

Stupidity is more damaging because it happens more often, but per individual (and deliberate) case, intelligent malice is more harmful than idiotic malice.

Stupid people are fairly limited in what they're going to destroy without the assistance of clever people to get them started.

Besides, there's just a short lapse of concentration separating an intelligent professional and a bumbling idiot.

D_Hall is included in the hijack so I wouldn't see it personally as a problem+ there wasn't much of a topic to begin with considering the first post didn't have any question he was just showing the pipe cutter.
Stupid people and Smart people in a spudding match stupid people make straws with chewed paper smart people make pneumatic shotguns. who does more damage if you are a smart person you know.

Speaking of no soup, since this topic has already been hijacked at least as many times as the constitution has been ignored,
These anti-soup posters appeared all over my school one day... Some of them were rather high up the wall...
Image
This poster was a good 5' out of reach. (hand written part reads "how did you get this up so high?", to which I though, 'wait, how did the person writing that get up so high?')
I took photos off all that I could find here
The posters kept on appearing for 3 days straight.


Anyways, pipe bugs, Forking Awesome.

Do not look back, and grieve over the past, for it is gone;
Do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come;
Live life in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.
