LOL! That reminds me of the story my father used to tell about when he got his Machinist’s Certificate in welding. (He was working for Adolf Coors at the time.) He was tasked to build a widget to exacting standards. He got it all welded up, ground down, polished off and here comes the inspector with his micrometer. A micro measured here, a micro measured there, and he turns to my father and announces the widget was ‘Zero point X’ number of microns off to the left. Dad proceeded to pull his trusty 8 ounce ball peen from his back pocket… and gave the widget a carefully measured *WHACK* on the right… Out comes the inspector’s micrometer – PERFECT! Dad received his Machinist’s certificate.

That was in '74 in Golden Colorado.

If I’m lyin’ I’m dyin’.

I don't think the pee-resident will be getting a free pass at an internet takover:

Analysts: Obama's Much-Touted New Cybersecurity Plan Is Full of Holes

Despite being a respectable start, security experts call the report overheated and "clear as mud"

Do you know why Trabants and Yugos have rear window defoggers?
To keep your hands warm when pushing it to the shop

That's what you can call "hand fitted". The snobs pay big money for that in their Rolls and Bentleys.
