    Covid-19 Testing (Thank You bijohnsd!)

    bigjohnsd posted a very funny Covid-19 humorous piece in another MOA Forum. It's too good not to distribute:

    "A new and easy test for the horror of Covid-19 is doing the rounds and it's simple, quick and positive (or negative if you see what I mean.).

    Take a glass and pour a decent dram of your favourite whisky into it; then see if you can smell it. If you can, then you are halfway there.

    Then drink it. If you can taste it then it is reasonable to assume you are currently free of the virus because the loss of the sense of smell and the sense taste is a common symptom..

    I tested myself 7 times last night and was virus free every time, thank goodness.

    I will have to test myself again today because I have developed a throbbing headache which can also be one of the symptoms..

    I'll report my results later..."

    Never try and BS Mama !

    Italian Mother
    Mrs. Ravioli comes to visit her son Anthony for dinner. He lives with a female roommate, Maria. During the evening, his mother couldn't help but notice how pretty Anthony's roommate is.

    While watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between Anthony and his roommate than met the eye. Reading his mom's thoughts, Anthony volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you, Maria and I are just roommates."

    About a week later, Maria came to Anthony saying, "Ever since your mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the silver sugar bowl. You don't suppose she took it, do you?"

    "Well, I doubt it, but I'll email her, just to be sure." So he sat down and wrote an email:



    Dear Mama,

    I'm not saying that you "did" take the sugar bowl from my house; I'm not saying that you "did not" take it. But the fact remains that it has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.

    Your Loving Son

    Anthony



    Several days later, Anthony received a response email from his Mama which read:

    Dear son,

    I'm not saying that you "do" sleep with Maria, and I'm not saying that you "do not" sleep with her. But the fact remains that if she was sleeping in her OWN bed, she would have found the sugar bowl by now.

    Your Loving Mama



    Moral: Never BS yo Mama

    When the blowout launches that wheel across the shop, his coworkers may come after him with...a hammer and sickle.

    Looks like they had the lowest common denominator do the dangerous work. His next task was to go feed the owner's pet tiger..., he really likes fresh meat!

    Before this gets into a multi-post discussion on the use of a tire cage- it was a safety device for use with multi-piece rims.
    OSHA requires the use of a restraining device for inflating tires on multi-piece rims. Safety cages provide the kind of restraint needed to safely contain possible explosions and the dangerous aftereffects from it. ... These items make it possible to follow these regulations safely and easily.
    Probably just the unknowing messing around. Clearly a hub-piloted safety rim.

    I worked in a semi trailer factory. When a split rim tire blew, it was like dynamite.

    I worked changing and recapping truck tires in high school and college. Saw one tire come apart while being inflated. The wheel/tire was in a cage and no one was injured. I was about 20 feet away and was as stunned as when I’ve been when close to high order detonations. The man filling the tire was next to the cage and was scared witless. We had men who went out on road side calls to change tires. They were much less disciplined about taking precautions.
