Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I do not want to be Mike Rowe.

    Like...a video of a guy shoving a fake hand up his butt.
    Was it the DS hand that Nintendo gave out years ago?

    I don't think it has been mentioned that he is also well hung.

    It should be mentioned that Mike Rowe is also well hung.

    Mike Rowe is well hung.

    the episode where he is out on a ship. everyone's getting all sea sick at night in the sleeping quarters. mike gets up and has a pretty hefty flop and sway to his boxers

    especially considering the conditions he was in

    all boat jokes aside, that's no time for a man to be going half-mast

    I like that they're able to get more popsicle shit on their face and hands than in their mouth.

    Xhaztol, I have no idea if the shit in your sig is from some specific dialog, but the reference is awesome. That's one of my favorite games of all time.

    Son, that's from my normal LIFE.

    This is the true reason I love Mike Rowe.

    It is the same reason that I love Kojo Nnamdi (but with callers instead of guests.)

    "You know, when I'm really down in the shit like this, it's easy to forget how much more money I make than you guys, just for pretending to do your actual jobs for a while.

    It's a lot, though. I mean, like, a whole lot. I could pretty much purchase the two of you and use you as coffee tables."

    I've worked as a lumberjack and then in a sawmill for five years. Fuck you and your 'hard' jobs.

    Although, anything to do with sewage is pretty horrible, I agree.
    I am currently a lumberjack.

    Or so says this girl that I'm seeing.

    How does Mike Rowe not have the nickname Tiny?

    "FUCK THESE GOATS," he'd seem to say, flying through the air to gnaw on the backs of their necks with his five or six teeth, "I CAN NO LONGER TOLERATE THEIR GOAT SHENANIGANS! MURDER IS CLEARLY THE ONLY RECOURSE!"

    As cool as Mike seems, I get the impression he is just a big asshole that is extremely charismatic.

    I did a bunch of tree thinning with the forest service in Colorado, never did actual logging but massacring trees is perhaps my favorite job.

    I worked at a place that rented out and serviced porta-potties for a summer



    fucking terrible.
    At the park, the natives here will practically live in them for a few days - no joke. One time there was even a little shelf built inside one.

    We would use a giant hose to suck out all the crap and pee and stuff, but it would get clogged with:

    panties
    diapers
    bottles
    a sweater
    dead cat

    and we'd have to kick out the natives sleeping in them and they'd get pissed like we were foreclosing on their home or something.

    oh god

    what a terrible way for a cat to die

    In high school I dissected a cat that had eaten another cat




    The emotion that is not quite rage is for the people at work who break items and run off leaving a mess usually with shards of glass

    I hate cleaning up nacho cheese and glass

    I worked at a pretty questionable butcher shop when I was in high school

    The worst part was cleaning the meat saw. When meat saws do their thing, you get meat sawdust. And then about once a week we'd clean out the saw, which would be caked with week-old meat sawdust. It's like a whole new level of rotten meat.

    Oh, and the first thing that needed to be done every morning: Collect all the expired meat and smell it. Throw it out if it smells rotten, repackage it if it smells ok.

    My dirtiest job was a dog bather/kennel attendant

    I know he was a groomer once on the show, but they didn't get anywhere near how dirty that job can be. Cleaning up dog vomit from a van that's been sitting out in the summer sun for hours? Shoving pills down the throat of a Pit bull? Not to mention the occasional 11 hour day with no lunch break. And no bathroom, I got to pick between going in a port-a potty and a horse stall.
