OK, IndyGerdener: it's ALL YOUR FAULT!!!
My ribs hurt, my throat hurts, DH thinks I've absolutely lost my mind joining a sports bike forum (based in British Columbia, no less), and almost 2 hours of my Friday evening have vaporized while staring in horrified fascination at the Shed of Doom thread (now up to 31 pages and evidently posted on reddit and other Very Big
internet sites). OMG, it's so bad it's hysterical.
An amazing number of people have joined that site simply because of the Shed thread, and from a wide variety of interest fora. I seem to be the only one who joined from a gardening forum, though; most of the others had at least a tenuous connection to either metallic objects or mechanical (= powered) ones.
I worked construction for a while in college--the money was better than secretary money--and, before the car accident which knocked me out of gardening (and house repairs), I also was the "crew chief" for most of the repairs at our previous house. (The accident was in December 1995.) I also took a couple of cabinet-making classes while working in construction, so the pain of seeing how this guy just slapped stuff together without a right angle anywhere is pretty great.
But maybe the B.C. climate will have its revenge....
