safety is great but some times if you give your 22 year old drunk brother a pull start mini bike and you know it is gonna get bloody but you still encourage with quotes like "the only thing stopping you is you"," and what is the worst that can happen it is a mini bike" and "you will be able to stop it is a mini bike, puss" next thing you know your  witnes to the greatest mini bike crash ever. SOMETIMES UNSAFE IS FUNNY AS SHIT

Tube miter program.  This lets you print out tube joint templates on paper to get your joints perfect for butt welding.  Works great!

I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.
