If I had a hammer, I'd probably kill my 7th grade music teacher who taught me that damned song.

If I had a keger
I'd get hammered in the morning
I'd get hammered in the evening ... all over this land.

After being held down and having every bone in my right hand smashed with a hammer by crackheads, I tend to avoid them

Ok, i made that up, but you gotta admit it was more exciting then a guy with a bunch of hammers.
2003-04-27 05:32:16 AM  
Boring, yes. But asinine? The guy collects old tools, specializing in one particular type of tool. That doesn't make him an ass.

(I know you're thinking it, but it doesn't make him a tool either.)

Woo! Been taking care of my sick friend for the past 8 hours. On a party weekend. At a college.

it's a hammer of justice
it's a bell of freedom
it's a song about love
between all of my brothers and sisters
all over this land

I've been to Haines...trust me it's BORING as hell. There's one main street...and that's about it. Good fishing though.

Billy Sherbert hammered my fingers bloody in a casino backroom after catching me cheeting on a game of Pai Gow Poker..

I'll NEVER do that again at the Tangiers.

If I had a Hammer there's be no more folksingers
2003-04-27 11:12:07 AM  
That's weird, spiffy, or cool. Not asinine.

Humans have a tendency to state and repeat the very, very obvious, such as "It's a nice day," or, "You're very tall," or, "Oh dear, you seem to have fallen down a thirty-foot well, are you alright?"

im laughin from the stalin dance...
2003-04-27 12:54:29 PM  
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail.
2003-04-27 01:24:42 PM  
What's asinine about a museum with a collection of tools? Specifically hammers. What am I missing?

people don't need drills, they need holes in things.

/wrong tool
2003-04-27 08:21:05 PM  
I don't think the person who submitted the story was big into tools.

Of course I own, er, about 25-30 of the things so one could argue my judgement is not all it should be in the area.

I am a laborer and happen use a straight claw 20 oz with a rubberized fiberglass handle it is not a waffle head, of course, I believe it is stanley brand. I need one hammer to be with me for everything from demolition to framing. I also now carry in my trunk at all times a two pounder (has one pointed side on the head) with a fiberglass handle this has come in handy in many demoltions especially working overhead.

Estwing narrow or flat handles are great for framing, carpenters always carry these in 22 oz + but not good for pulling sticky nails since this can bend the handle.

Last year a carpenter showed me a titanium head hammer which has a very l9ong handle and is very light. it is magnetic and has a nothc on the top for fast one handed framing pulling nails right out of th ebox he said. He paid nearly $90 for that hammer.

WHen they dig up the remains of this civilization ten thousand years from now they may well rate us very high because of these modern hammers. How long does fiberglass handles last? How about the epoxy holding it together?

what, no TMBG lyrics?

If I were a carpenter I'd
hammer on my piglet, I'd
collect the seven dollars and I'd
buy a big prosthetic forehead
and wear it on my real head

Haines, Alaska is a beautiful place! Sure there may not be much to do, but if you are living in such a hoping place now why are you sitting at the computer?
