I guess the outer part of the rivets were work hardened and grinding that part off let me drill the rest of the way.

I was telling Carol how hard the rivets are,and how good the glue is,and how well this thing was put together and she says "yep,and thats the reason we have one''.
So,i went back to work...

Now,a warning to you all,i was taking a bay door off and was on my knees under the door when the gas shock decided to come off,the door falls down and hits me in the head and then pins me under it.
I was covered in sweat,and the blood from my cut head was mixing with the sweat and i was thinking i was bleeding to death!
So,with one hand holding my head to stop the bleeding i was kinda stuck under the door.
So,I called Carol to come save me (keep your cell phone handy boys!).

Of course i'm covered in blood,she thinks i'm dead,and she lifts the door and i crawl out,covered in blood,sweat and sand.
So,i get washed off and head to the hospital and get 3 staples in my head,the cut was minor and they stapled me just to stop the bleeding.

Quick and easy,the Doc sprayed my wound with something cold,kuthunk,kuthunk,kuthunk.3 staples and i'm on the way back home.
No pain killers,no nothing.

If your going to be dumb you have to be tough.

I just got off of the phone with Randy and got ...........THE REST OF THE STORY!!

Now I'm not saying that Randy is HARD HEADED, but the Doctor couldn't get the surgical staples to go into his skull, so he had to send out for this staple gun to do the kuthunk,kuthunk,kuthunk.3 staples trick!!
