SOMETIMES STEREOTYPES ARE TRUE

My leaking water main is fixed, and it only cost $600. There goes my annual ad revenue from TBP down the drain.

The plumber was a really nice guy. I was at my desk in the office and he was grunting and groaning trying to remove the existing hardware. We chatted about how his job couldn’t be outsourced to China and he said his company decided to buy their drain cleaning machines from China to save money. He said the country wasn’t like it used to be and I agreed. We talked about shady home builders using substandard materials.

And then it happened. I turned around and right before my very eyes:

The dreaded PLUMBER’S CRACK was staring me right in the face. I kid you not. Looks like this guy dropped a bald headed dookie.

He was a nice guy, but I’m sure I will have scary flashbacks of a hairy ass crack for a long time to come.

Sometimes stereotypes are true.

I wasn’t this lucky.

    Hey! I just ordered a ton of stuff from amazon through this site, hell, you should be able to vacation in the Bahamas, lol.

    At the rate medicine is going, plumbing looks better to me everyday. The only mistake that lady plumber is making is not having the top of a thong peeking above her jeans for the man of the house to stick a few benjamins into it.

    I was thinking a tube top would complete the plumbing outfit.

    Thanks for the Amazon orders.

    Should have stuck with a proven business model and started a porn site.

    My plumber is uber thin, and wears a belt, and in all the times he has done work around here (including crawling down a teeny-tiny access panel), I have never seen his ass crack.

    Of course the last heating guy that was here had a gut that weighed in at my entire body weight, now his ass I got to see.

    Life ain’t freaking fair. Not at all.

    That is the exact reason I learned how to do plumbing myself. My wife gives me hell for the plumber crack but that’s because she loves me.

    I actually enjoy plumbing repairs and installing things with copper. The new PEX crap you can keep. Every time I sweat a connection or install a valve I can feel my dad over my shoulder telling me to watch for the color change and then touch the solder. A few years ago I taught my son how to do copper lines and I know, like me, he will never call a plumber in his life.

    She might be cute but she’s dumb…….the only reason to get under the sink to fix a “leaky faucet” is to shut off the water. The rest of the work is all up top.

    That being said, I’d sit and watch her long enough to drink a beer while she pretended to fix the leak! After that my patience would wear thin.

    Today I was reading about the Cascadia Subduction Zone. You folks in the NW are probably aware of this geological feature. (And if so, why aren’t you moving?)

    “The Cascadia subduction zone (also referred to as the Cascadia fault) is a subduction zone, a type of convergent plate boundary that stretches from northern Vancouver Island to northern California. It is a very long sloping fault that separates the Juan de Fuca and North America plates.”

    “Ocean floor is sinking below the continental plate offshore of Washington and Oregon. The North American Plate moves in a general southwest direction, overriding the oceanic plate. The Cascadia Subduction Zone is where the two plates meet.”

    “Tectonic processes active in the Cascadia subduction zone region include accretion, subduction, deep earthquakes, and active volcanism that has included such notable eruptions as Mount Mazama (Crater Lake) about 7,500 years ago, Mount Meager about 2,350 years ago and Mount St. Helens in 1980.[1]”

    “Major cities affected by a disturbance in this subduction zone would include Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia; Seattle, Washington; Portland, Oregon; and Sacramento, California.[2]”

    Earthquake magnitude

    ‘The Cascadia subduction zone can produce very large earthquakes (“megathrust earthquakes”), magnitude 9.0 or greater, if rupture occurs over its whole area. When the “locked” zone stores up energy for an earthquake, the “transition” zone, although somewhat plastic, can rupture. Great Subduction Zone earthquakes are the largest earthquakes in the world, and can exceed magnitude 9.0. Earthquake size is proportional to fault area, and the Cascadia Subduction Zone is a very long sloping fault that stretches from mid-Vancouver Island to Northern California. It separates the Juan de Fuca and North American plates. Because of the very large fault area, the Cascadia Subduction Zone could produce a very large earthquake.”

    And here I was worrying about storms on the East Coast. The whole upper West Coast could be wiped out by earthquakes and tsunamis in a heartbeat. It sounds bizarre to talk about that, but actually the likelihood is not zero. Some experts apparently say its a case of when and not if.

    Hell, I can’t wait for it! Portland and Seattle will immediately go the way of Atlantis along with all the liberal douchebags that inhabit those places! I’m far enough away from the coast that I’ll probably end up with oceanfront property afterwards. The only downside I see is that I may end up in a Constitution free zone!

    Along the Oregon Coast, if you look closely in low lying areas, you can see evidence of past tsunamis, in the form of shallow lakes and bogs that have ancient stumps protruding. A large earthquake in the Cascadia Subduction Zone that created a large tsunami would devastate the lower areas of the coastline (where all the cities are) but would probably not affect inland cities such as Portland too badly. Such damage would have to occur if a chain of tsunamis were large and of prolonged duration that would cause the Columbia River to back up significantly so as to cause flooding.

    Now if Mt. Hood erupted, it would be a whole other matter. A Toutle River type event (Mt. St. Helens) would devastate Portland Suburbs like Milwaukie and Oregon City. The same would be true for the Kent Washington area should Mt. Rainier blow it’s top.

    Over the past 20 yrs or so, Tsunami warning sirens have been located up and down the coast and as you drive along oceanfront roads, there are periodic signs that point the way to tsunami escape routes (to high ground). There would be about a 15-20 minute duration from an earthquake event until the first tsunami made landfall.
