    Better hope that those roll offs weren't there specifically to put those steel pieces in for recycling by the builder.

    Truth be told, with the fact that nearly every dryer I find lately has copper-coated-aluminum windings in the motor, and those barely pay over shred here, the main reason for removing the back is to...

    40 years I've checked the date on every coin in my possession. Current count on silver coinage from pocket change is 4 quarters, 13 dimes, and 11 war nickels. They're pretty rare... I can't even...

    The corner packy was going to put it in their dumpster!!!

    I was like, "Let me help you lift that.... Into my truck!"
  11. Which is worth more? 1 pound of quarters or 1 pound of dimes?

    Actually... it's a trick question.

    So... a quarter weighs 5.670 grams, a dime weighs 2.268 grams, a nickel weighs 5.00 grams, a copper penny (81 & before) weighs 3.11 grams, and a copper coated...

    Could the forklift driver have prevented the accident? Yes. He could have stopped when the pickup stopped in mid-backup.... and he probably should have been honking as he was crossing the yard....

    Good point about the horn, or rather the lack thereof.

    It resulted in a pretty good bend in the guy's front bumper, and some orange paint scraped off the side of the forklift. Those things tend...

    Again spouting off about things you don't know, and the same tired line about "I would say it to your face" when you know damwell you wouldn't.

    You are a joke.
  25. Fenderbender at the scrapyard this morning, caught on dashcam
