    You mean they still let him work there Buy him a nail gun and put him in his own little corner

    One of the financial guy's talk shows I listen to uses the quote "common sense isn't all the common anymore".

    That was the whole idea of what I posted on another site. Seems quite a few people have no problem with some one going out and buying a welder, calling himself a welder and building a trailer or some other structural item with absolutely no clue as to what he/she is doing. Anyone who has been on here for a while has probably seen a few of my posts about unsafe trailers going down the road or various other questionable items being proudly displayed.

    After thinking about the responses that I got back over the silly idea of people having to be trained, it all started making some sense to me. Even with all of the proper training in the world, with all the latest products on the market, and the information level available on the internet, there is not one single outlet available for these people to get common sense, so I now regretfully retract my proposed idea that people should have to be trained because no matter what we do, they will still be a danger to the rest of us.

    i'm really more concerned about the guys with O/A rigs and no clue as to the possible risks involved. after all a welder will most likely only blind or shock himself. the guy with the O/A rig sitting under the steel he is cutting could effect a lot more people if ya get my meaning.
    if you're going to license people to buy welders you should do the same for people buying a pneumatic framing nailer's. Lots of amateurs getting involved in house construction during the last housing boom.

    again still a small number of fools getting them selves into trouble. why must we always feel the need to protect the stupid from them selves ?? if you are too stupid to be alive...well so be it. how can any one not see the possible danger of a pneumatic nail gun ??? again we refer to the "good thing they don't have to remember to breath".
    i have worked with pneumatic nail guns for almost 20 years ( about ) and its been the same for many of them. the first page of its owners manual shows a guy shooting the other guy walking up the ladder behind him in the head ?? so the first thing you have to do is be stupid enough to go up a ladder right behind the guy with the gun right. so now you don't know how to use a ladder aether. so why are you trying to use a pro's tool. LOL just too stupid to figure out how to work a hammer due to its lack of instructional material when purchased ????

    i say let the stupid rid us of themselves as long as they do it without taking us with them.
    I was just making the point about the nail gun to show how far you would need to drag the bureaucratic process out to keep things even.

    this one happened at the begging of this year and before i start, i have to tell you that i work for the largest sign company in the world. it is very easy for me to say "what do we build here?" "here's your's, by the way"...lol... it starts out, i was working on a job for the logan international airport, in boston. the signs are 2x2 square tube frame, with 5 inch i-beam running horizontal, and 8 inch i-beam stacked on top running vertical(architect drawings). the plant production supervisor comes to me while i was working on this sign and asks a time frame for completion, i had lost my voice about a day or so before, so my fitter answered his question"all we lack is finishing up" this supervisor then asked what was wrong with my voice and the fitter said that the fumes from welding had burned my voice. supervisor then asked me" well stan, dont you wear a hood? i had hood, leathers, gloves, and respirator on and standing on the sign when he asked me. my fitter then said, nope he puts it on after he gets done welding. this supervisor know has the nickname"stupidvisor" i have many more stories to tell on stupidvisor, but i'll wait until this thread takes off a little more.
