We drilled one part of the hole okay, but one of the tools which was ordered by certain parties which must reamin unnamed wouldn’t fit through the table.

My sarcasm fails me.

Excerpt from Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein:

Mr. Dubois then turned to me. "I told you that `juvenile delinquent' is
a contradiction in terms. `Delinquent' means `failing in duty.' But duty is an adult virtue -- indeed a juvenile becomes an adult when, and only when, he acquires a knowledge of duty and embraces it as dearer than the self-love he was born with. There never was, there cannot be a `juvenile delinquent.' But for every juvenile criminal there are always one or more adult delinquents -- people of mature years who either do not know their duty, or who, knowing it, fail."

I thought it was interesting…

In other news today, the Russian holiday of the week is -you’ll never guess: Oilfield Worker’s Day.
So all the oilfield workers get a long weekend to party and get drunk and not work. Why don’t we have this at home? And don’t say "Every day is Oilfield Worker’s Day." Because that is simply not true.
