    This is why you pick up nice stuff from expensive suburbs - the kind of suburbs where housewives have far too much money and like to replace 'out-of-season' furniture regularly.

    You'd be surprised. People sometimes throw out what is basically good furniture just because they have purchased new furniture and they either have no room for the old, or it does not match etc etc. We scored some sweet bed-side tables and lamps for my parents' bedroom that way.

    Wait, like, literal knots with rope? or is this some metaphor I'm not hip to?

    I always wanted to learn how to tie a few good knots. Maybe keep a coil of rope in the car in case I have to do some MacGuyver shit.

    I was surprised to learn that furniture has yearly fashion trends. Many of the Uni students around where I live furnish their apartments with stuff from kerb pickups in the rich suburbs. Our coffee table is off the side of the road...

    I got my couch and living room chair from my friends garage.

    My Kitchen table was a roadside table that just needed some new nuts, bolts and a refinishing.

    I'm tempted to go out looking for road chairs tomorrow.

    We're talking about furniture? I know a dude who got so drunk, he took off one of his sofa cushions and his pants and basically took a dump inside his couch. The best part of it was that a girl at the party wanted to stop him but she was actually stopped from doing so by everyone else. "Nooooo its gotta happen!" etc. Good times.

    Get yourself some bolt cutters and go to one of those self storage places. You wouldn't believe the stuff people leave there.

    Even though this was discussed pages ago, a comment on the machinist apprenticeship thing: you have to do a four-year apprenticeship up here to even be able to call yourself a machinist. They hand that title out like candy down in Wyoming it seems.

    Like I said, my father has like 40 years in the industry and can only call himself a machine hand because nobody has done the true journeyman apprentice thing in well over 60 years in PA. He gets a kick out of it when young guys fresh out of VoTech schools call themselves machinists.

    Yea, I have a good friend from high school who did the four-year apprenticeship (which apparently had some incredibly stress-inducing written tests and several courses on metallurgy, advanced algebra and trigonmetry) before he was given his journeyman ticket. You can't even get hired as a machinist up here without your journeyman ticket.

    The pay is nice from what I hear. 70 to 90 dollars an hour, wutwut.

    70 bucks an hour but remember you have either union dues or you're paying into some kind of job finding service or company. You're still making good money though.
