Quote of the Day

 
Read, every day, something no one else is reading.
Think, every day, something no one else is thinking.
Do, every day, something no one else would be
silly enough to do.  It is bad for the mind to
continually be part of unanimity.

Quote of the Day

 
If you make it in the NBA, for your entire life up to that point,
you were probably the best player on every team you were on.
 
When you get to the NBA, one of the things they tell you coming
in is that 80% of the league is role players.  Essentially they
tell you, you're no longer going to be the star of your team.
 
Most of us are not going to be the star ever again.  That's
a hard pill to swallow.  Honestly, the reason a lot of guys
don't make it in the NBA is they can't swallow that pill, 
they can't accept it, they can't take a back seat,
they're unwilling to take on a "lesser" role.

Learning the Hard Way

 


When I started working in commercial interior construction, I didn't know a Screw Gun from a Ramset.

Lucky for me, brother Mike helped me figure things out in a hurry.  Calling for him to cut me a piece of drywall "forty-eight and three eighths" inches wide got me this response:

"Run out to the truck and get the sheet rock stretcher!"

Okay, I get it...

So, here we are - decades later - and I'm still learning things the hard way.
 
We've been dealing with lane rope connection issues for years in BC.  Ropes that were purchased for our SCY pool would've been great if our anchors were in the end walls.
 
Unfortunately, they're in the gutters, about 8" away from the ends.  That means we've been buying - and bending - and losing - long extension hooks at $30+ a piece.
 
You can learn from our mistake(s):

It sure would make sense for anyone in the same situation to buy SCM ropes, then shorten them, right?

The cost for the longer ropes is just about the same as what you pay for adding extensions to the shorter ones.

"Going long" saves the headache of dealing with those pain-in-the butt extensions.
 
Saving the excess discs means you'll have extras when you need to replace broken ones.
