I've been a welding inspector for a long time. Started with an X-ray company and got my CWI about 10 years ago. I loved pipelining. But, I recently started working at CB&I in Lake Charles inspecting sub-modules for 2 nuclear plants. Pay is outstanding, but I miss my pipelines. ...

I'm not reading this whole thread to see if the obvious has been stated already. I'll state it just in case. With a lot of women, it's psychological. They don't let themselves go enough. Too self conscious about dumb shite. ...

For the longest time, it didn't affect me so I didn't see it. But, the older I get the more I see my Mom's utter contempt for my middle sister who's done nothing to deserve that contempt.
I'm sure my Mom loves her. There are just some issues there. ...

With all the places that are willing to provide school supplies for free, you're just a piece of shite if you're kid goes to school empty handed.

My Dad never once whipped me without it ending with his arm around me telling me he loved me. He did that with all his kids.
Also, I remember when I was about 8, my Dad roared into the driveway and had a frantic conversation with my Mom about whether or not his friend, Jim, would call the police ...

We hit 20 years married next February. My wife isn't always in the mood when I am. However, I've had 20 years to learn what gets her off, so she usually doesn't turn me down because she knows that by the time it's over, she'll be glad she didn't.
And, no, not twice a day or even every day. Maybe...

Actually, it usually refers to inadequate penetration of the root pass, but I can see where you could get that.
I was just surprised that a pipeline welder wouldn't know that right off. ...

Completely random, but I just called a repair on a 12" .250 wall pipe. It had 10" of IP. The welder asked me what IP is.
