Pants full of macaroni

When I visit Fark, I play 'Fark Jeopardy' and based on the article
try to guess in how many posts will someone say what I was going to.
Because the topic was 'sheds', my guess was within 5  posts there
will be a mention of the Monty Python skit 'Two Sheds Johnson'.

In this case, it was the second post.

I am easily entertained.

Fubini: Mister Peejay: You know...  I wonder if the structure would be too flexible to fail.  Like, instead of the wind or a fallen leaf or something else of that nature finding a weak spot and causing a chain reaction, the whole structure just yields a little bit, finding a new equilibrium as the load is spread to the rest of the joints.

Maybe

In reality, structures need to be strong and flexible. I would not go up on that roof if I were him, the extra weight might just make it flex all the way to the ground!

Also, this guy could probably buy and install a professionally built prefab shed for twice the cost of what he's spending (and destroying) in lumber. What's the point?


The pride of building it himself. I admire his ambition. A first project for most people is something smaller. Like a coffee table.

browser_snake: bigbobowski: Eravior: For one, the ground it's being built is mushy moist marshland - your feet sink with every step. Which is always ideal for a good foundation - or complete lack thereof.

When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a castletool shed on a swamp, but I built it all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, Lad, the strongest castletool shed in all of England.

but she's got "great tracks of land"!

That's "Tracts" of land, Einstein. English doesn't always spell like it sounds.


no kiddin' really? so if you try to add on a little joke, but even though every single person on the planet including you, knew what I meant, but didn't take the tenth of a second to spell check myself, you have to insult me? I know how the word is spelled. are you just pissed because you didn't get there first? here's one for you. you sir are an assh*ole.

This is Fark. It is our duty to the internet to mock things. ALL THE THINGS. Besides, how often do you get to witness such a comedy of errors like this? It's a bit like watching slow-motion crash tests, but with more suspense because while you know it's going to be wrecked, the "when" and "how" are still up for grabs.

Indeed. He thought spelling was relative.

This is the most awesomest thing ever.  It reminds me of "the structure" from the "My Redneck Neighbor" site.

Maybe the whole thing is intentional.  This is actually a brilliant form of art..every gap, every angle to his exact master plan.

I just wish the post's OP hadn't mentioned that the guy building it was Korean. It's not important at all (anyone can build a crappy structure, I know!) and gave it more of a ha-ha look at how dumb they are flavor.

danno_to_infinity: oh, boy, BCSB's server is going to get a farking the likes of which it has never seen before.  I'm glad I read the thread yesterday (38 pages as of 9:50 AM EST, and yes, I read the whole thing.)  I first heard about this from a guitar forum, and thought it was about a rehearsal shed for a black metal band.  The breadth of variety in the subject matter people reported where they heard about this Shed Of Doomwas amazing.  A good deal of the pages from about 28 or so on were people signing up just to report their point of entry's field of interest.  There are some GREAT photoshops, btw, and makes me wonder if some of the TFers might not already be spreading their magics around in there.

Anybody who gets their nose out of joint about 'why did he not help or tell the guy how to do it right' has never met people like this.  you could tell him until you were blue in the face, they'll just keep going.

I've done construction and finish carpentry.  I read this and laughed harder than I have in years.  I really ought to try to save the pictures before the server explodes like a russian meteor.  The first time lapsed video is magnificent.


Can't find the video, can someone link to it please

That's still pretty bad, my first project was taking over as sweat labor for the construction of my house. Doors, windows, flooring, etc.. and I didn't royally fark it up that bad.

Course it probably helped that I spent 6 months as a day laborer working construction with a bunch of immigrant mexicans.

xanadian: I think I lived in a "house" built like that, once....

:/


unfortunately i did too.  a duplex in miami in the late 80s/early 90s.  the landlord said he would rather tear it down and rebuild it than to fix everything wrong with it.

when you flushed the toilet everthing would come out of the bathtub faucet.  :-(

ended up running away to live with my father but my mother said that as soon as she finally moved out the house was demolished.

That shouldn't even be physically possible.  I have done some amateur plumbing and I don't see how you could even make that happen without trying.

manimal2878: That shouldn't even be physically possible.  I have done some amateur plumbing and I don't see how you could even make that happen without trying.


the sewer or septic line is backed up.  Therefore, when you flush, the water can't get out of the house.  Instead, it goes to the lowest drain in the house and comes out there.  I am just assuming that by "bathtub faucet" he means "bathtub drain."
 
2013-04-08 11:33:32 AM
Saw a house built like this, the guy was asking 180k for it. I pointed out it was about to fall down and offered 20k for the lot. His agent wouldn't even pass my offer onto the seller.

Think it's a pretty good assumption by "faucet" he really means "the faucet area, including the vanity sink and drain".

I wish it wasnt possible.  I wish it wasnt true but trust me.....once my eyes saw it, I became a believer.  Maybe its because it was one house split into two (a duplex).  it was absolutely horrible.  have no idea what went on in the other "apartment" or if a dwelling like this would still be legal (or if it ever was) thts why i mentioned the year & city.

I have it. You start with being told everything is supposed to be vented in the bathroom that you're creating. When you install the tub faucets/shower, you include a connection to a vent pipe. The bathtub faucet works, because it's lower than the vent pipe. Shower works...although you might be losing some water into the vent.

With a low-flow pressurized toilet... flush when the drain is obstructed, and it flows through the vent pipes to the bathtub. This is made easier if you don't know how big a vent pipe is supposed to be, so you've vented with 1/2 inch or smaller pipe.

That guy's gonna get himself killed.. I hope the original poster is aware of what he'll feel like, when that happens, and he starts reviewing the posts about how he should have either tried to help/warn the guy, or gotten code enforcement over there to stop him before he, and/or family members get hurt, and/or too much time/effort has been wasted on it.

Heck, the guy might even work a deal to reduce his rent while working on it, if not outright pay him for the assistance.

We live in a society, and as part of that society, you should be looking out for the rest of us, just like we're supposed to be looking out for you.  I'm just saying, I can't do anything but warn you that you might feel bad, and/or lose your place to live when it hits the fan, one way or another.  Good luck to both of you.

I was told I'd see someone building a tool shed.

That wasn't building, and that pile of lumber isn't a shed.

I especially enjoyed the "Painting" where he started than got distracted by unloading the van, only to continue by stirring the paint with an 8' 2x4 and then "paint" the wall by randomly moving the roller for a wile, then filling in the gaps.

A++ would laugh again.

The real kicker:

See... this is what irritates me about that one tax preparation commercial.   The one with the guy under the sink, and the dude is all like "Now you are a plumber, last week you were doing my taxes!"  Plumbing is dang near a science.  It has to be at least 800 times more difficult than tax preparation.
