A wanna be electrician finds out why he should listen to his friends. One man’s plan is still a more goes a ride and a building that needs to go back to drawing board. See what happens when the best laid do it yourself plans go wrong, right now.
Now lawnmowers work really well when you’re taking it for a ride across the lawn and traveling up an 85 degree ramp, no problem. We men come up with lots of ideas. Most of them are really bad. That’s not a this is going to be funny laugh, it’s glad I’m not you lad. That’s known as an MBS, Mower Body Slam.
In my opinion if you ask someone am I going to make it and they laughed, that’s not a good sign. But what would be good is reading the signs like a livewire, a voltage meter, your friend yelling, no, no, don’t do it. You know stuff like that.
If the voltage meter is reading anything but zero, stick in something in the socket ain’t the best move. Those are the warning signs everywhere except whatever planet this guy is from.
By the way that tingling sensation means the electricity work. That’s the DIY spirit, if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again, and let you keep yourself that is.
Now when building a new structure, the key is have every nail hammered in as flash as possible. There is nothing quite like the feeling of accomplishment when you see your project coming together. Wood supports stand and tall, check. Every last nail security in place, done. Oh scratch that last one. Look on the bright side, he might not have a building, but he’s got a sweet pair of yellow short.
Well that’s it for now, and just remember, there are those who DIY the right way and those that end up on our show. The choice is yours.
