That is one of my favorite internet "safety first" photos. Followed closely by the forklift lifting a forklift lifting something else.

For some reason I am imagining this as a drunken Billy Connolly brandishing the drill and howling: "Ye know what this frkkin drill needs? A frkkIN NAIL!"

Where did the nail in the article go, Friendo? Maybe you should re-watch the beginning.

Something tacky, naturally.

BigNumber12: An Indian construction worker in Saudi Arabia? I'm sure everything about that situation was completely legit, that he was a fully-trained professional working in a "safety-first" environment.

More like safety last.

Well, that story really hit the nail on the head.

stupiddream: How do you repair an electric drill with a nail gun? An don't all nail guns have a safety collar that has to be depressed to work? I would guess this is Darwinism at work.


I'm guessing that Indian manual laborers in Saudi Arabia are about the equivalent of Mexican laborers in the United States. Very hard working, but often low skilled laborers with extremely lazy and often incompetent supervisors, and generally poorly maintained tools. It broke, he was told to fix it fast or lose his job, and he chose poorly.

And I'm guessing that Saudi Arabia is a tea party paradise, too. Probably no OSHA regulations or socialist worker's compensation fund, and when foreign laborers get hurt I bet they get shipped home to die quietly.

Thank you for fulfilling the requirement that every thread must be wrenched into the political realm by some dope who can't find the Politics tab. And kudos for adding the "smaller government means you want anarchy" lefty meme, we certainly can't do without that.

He was a 'turban' Indian, not a 'casino' Indian.

I believe that's 'dot' Indian, vs 'feather' Indian.
