(Some Guy)   Who would have thought that a simple tool shed would be so interesting?   (bcsportbikes.com) divider line 22

Sometimes things are just a lost cause...and it's better to watch them go up in flames than to try and help. The only way anyone could have helped this guy was to bring a match and some gasoline.

The guy's not lazy, that's for sure. It'd take a lot more work to build it his way than the right way.

Dude just needed a shed... how much are those prefab sheds down at the hardware store?  Looks like he spent nearly as much just in substandard wood.

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.

utah dude: i'm not understanding how this got green'd unless drew himself posted it.


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.

bigbobowski: 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.


Also, Einstein didn't give a shiat about spelling English words correctly.

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.

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.

You're supposed to enunciate the second t in tracts.  No letter in tracts is wasted.  All are there for a reason.  All are pulling their own weight like strong ox.

"I dread beyond all else the growth of the petty tyranny of restrictive legislation, the transference of disciplinary authority from the judiciary to the constabulary, the abandonment of every constitutional safeguard of individual liberty."
