    I didn't mention the fact that this bike may be motorized (so it's not a bicycle). Look at my busted nut. It's big. I busted a BIG nut.

    I just busted a nut...

    What type of bike are you riding? That piece doesn't look like a 29er part, partially because it failed. 29ers are perfect in every way and do not fail.

    The tool was in my hand when I busted that nut. Luckily, my tool is OK.

    You did not bust a nut. I know it's hard for some of you to know when you've busted a nut, but, seriously? That nut is quite obviously not busted. Your rod did get bent, though. Apparently a bit too far.

    Good point. His ambition to screw it led to premature failure. More lube next time, perhaps?

    Seriously! a Corn Nut commercial that made it on air.

    Here ya go Hawg maybe you remember this radio commercial. It only ran on the west coast. I remember it in San Diego around 09' but it only ran for about a month before it was yanked. << no pun intended.

    Thanks DJ but I can't say that I was feeling like signing a tune when I busted that nut. It was more like "turning Japanese" in dismay.

    Hawg, based on your picture, it looks like you busted a wheel stud off of your tractor that's been sitting out in the field for a couple of years. The nut has weldified itself to the wheel stud.

    If that is off of your bike, dam, where have you been riding?

    Wow. Looks labor intensive. Is that a shade of almond on the walls?

    I don't see any busted nuts on the floor.

    Walls are like a really light tan, I guess, the top part. Hell, I don't know...I'm colorblind.

    Lower part is red, though. What sucks is the limited room I have. I want to do another coat on the bottom, and all the bottom doors, and I have until Wednesday to get it done and dried. It takes this stuff about 24 hours or more to dry.

    Counter top guys arrive on Wednesday.

    One of my clients did something similar to his kitchen. Lighter colored granite on darker cabinets look rich. Can't wait to see the completed project!

    Net that is definitely a work in progress. Enough Mtbr. Roll those sleeves up and show us the worker side of what you do...not the "worker" Hawg was up to...and not any of that elbow "grease" you are so fond of.

    This radio ad actually aired for a few months in San Diego. Around 2009 or 10.

    LMFAO every time I heard it. I don't know why they took it off the air. Everybody loves Corn Nuts.
