    I would hardly call feeling flush after giving blood wimping out. I also noticed you couldn't help but step in with the assist regardless of how you felt.

      The guys on the factory floor are even more impressive, if I donate blood at work; I'm not out anything. Those guys are out real money for the time they aren't working.

          Even if they aren't hourly, they are paid by the piece. If they're not building the piece they're not getting paid.

              Just so everyone out there will know, the guy wearing the silk shirt set his threader on the outside of the support arm. Is that cheating?
              The most physically demanding event was the hand pipe threading contest. My buddy Rick almost passed out, it was a good thing that Charlie brought that fan.

                Setting the the threader on the support arm is what took me the longest, I am not used to using a support arm at all. I have enough weight to keep myself firmly planted on the ground. So I it is cheating if not used properly, or better yet should be disqualified for improper use of the tool.

                  i used the support arm on all 3 setups.

                  on 1 of them the 690 threader, you can actually lock the arm between the threader and handle. you don't have to slip it into the hole

                  remember that the safety manager was the one overseeing the threading contest. he was watching the 690 threader as i did it.

                  from what others said, they weren't required to even use the support arm.

                  truthfully, i don't think anyone would have used a support arm for 1'' pipe, but were were required to use it and i did.

                  just watch the video if you have them.

                      That was one of the secrets we can't share!

                              I wondered about that. You beat Brenda at station B but she beat you at station C. If you add Adams station A (he got light headed after giving blood and Brenda took over) they smoked you.

                                110. Discovering Charlie prefers to sit on a toilet than to sit on a chair.

                                By the way never let Charlie suggest the restaurant for dinner.
