The engineering industry is full of proverbial cat-skinners.  Everybody - and I mean everybody - looks at things from a slightly different perspective.  Usually that’s a good thing.  Usually.

  1. Oh man! I love it ..

    When ever we have film shoots we have to do wonderful Risk Assessments and I have great fun assessing them for risks such as

  6. the tart: Visitation? So formal. Does this mean I’m going to have to file an official report?

    angel: It’s kind of hard to explain, but it involves dry ice and a fly-swatter
