"Stink'in Electricity"

Is that the stuff made with "Clean Coal"?

That was very inspirational. I see he still had all his toes, too. Thanks for posting.

Reminds me of another video I saw about a guy that built a redneck house boat, or as he calledl it "a riverboat shanty." He was showing the house boat to his brother and said "I built it all by hand" his brother replied "looks to me like you built it with your feet"

The video of the bow saw lathe was very impressive, it was amazing the kind of deft touch the worker had with his foot.

It certainly makes you realize that those times when you wish you had three hands that there is a viable option available.

(I'm barely able to clip my own toe nails let alone create nice chess pieces with those same toes. ) I probably should have started training them much younger. :p

Hey, it has been years since I've even seen my toes.

I haven't seen your toes recently either, John.

I didn't see them either in Roger's shop or Duke's. No shirt, no shoes, no service....

Come to think of it, I've never seen John's toes. Hmmm. I wonder if he has any? Maybe we should ask his wife.
