  1. I'm telling you, man, TP. That's a loophole that hasn't been exploited yet, don't miss that boat. You could be the king of DooBwa, high atop your throne...
  2. Did your alleged friend ask to be paid in TP? Half of my crew has already decided to start the Angel Soft Cartel
  3. You need to start charging for these, pretty soon this will be the only way we will know what it looks like outside. Say maybe 4-6 squares of TP per view? Maybe you could work it out with @Pompeii where he could tally the views, then pay you in complete rolls
  4. 80% of our trash comes in on tipper trucks, we have two of them
  5. For anyone that doesn't know, a tipper is a stand alone piece of equipment that the tractor trailers back onto to dump their loads in the landfill. Most dump the trailer after the truck uncouples, but some will lift the entire truck and trailer When that deck is in the down position, it is normally angled from back to front, so the trucks have to back slightly uphill. The big blue wall the truck is backed into is called the backstop, and the way I read that story the employee was pinched between the truck and the backstop. It's doubtful the truck was in neutral with the brakes off and just rolled into him. This is just a very sad, scary story, and another sad example that I shared with all of my operators at lunch today. We see 130-160 trucks per day, and several times per day we will interact with these trucks with either a man on the ground, or a piece of heavy machinery. Trucks can get stuck and have to be pushed or pulled, spotters will be on the ground, trash can get hung in the chute in the tipper... The cardinal rule is always make contact with the driver before doing anything around, or to, their truck. Landfills are busy places, trucks and equipment never stop moving. Many drivers get paid by the load, not by the hour, so everyone is in a hurry. We deal with a lot of weight and a lot of horsepower, so very few accidents are small. Almost every accident results in significant damage to equipment, and my fear is always what would happen if it ever involved a man on the ground. This is what would happen. It's so sad. It's a preventable accident, and if a driver was in fact driving the truck when it ran into that man, he will have to live with that for the rest of his life. I wouldn't wish that on anyone, and my biggest fear is having to call one of my employees' wives one day and tell her daddy isn't coming home
  6. Crushed on the tipper? Man, that's awful... Does anyone know if they have a tipper operator that works for the landfill, or if the drivers operate the tipper themselves? I'm trying to figure out a scenario where someone would be between the truck and the back of the tipper. That's a horrible accident that someone else probably has to live with
  7. Been silently following this for months, and I've been a good boy, but I can't take it any more... Hey Faith! Did you know Grandma is going to make you use cheap paper plates and spray perfume in your toilet water?
  8. This is the time of year where we give our PowerPoint presentations to the big wheels, show them what changes we have made that are going to make us better the following year. I have an entire slide devoted to one topic. We were finally allowed to make drastic cuts in one specific area, and after only 8 months there is a noticeable difference in not only stability, but also a reduction in costs associated with the after effects of that material once it is placed in the landfill. These changes were not made just at my site, but were mandatory nationwide, with severe penalties for anyone violating the new policies. It will never be said out loud, but there is not a doubt in my mind that the ripples that caused these changes originated from a little mountain town in PA. Thank you for making noise
  9. You didn't accidentally burn it with the tutu, did you?
  10. I think either of those is more appropriate than my original CAT avatar. Honorable mention, of course, goes to my brief time with your avatar. For those who really paid attention, Vader's daughter designed one especially for me that I sported for a short while
  11. One of my favorite experiences here was the avatar change, I lost a bet on a football game. It was so appropriate that I kept it. I miss Watoos
