Created by Beelzebub himself

I know I said the next post would come from the apartment, but I forgot to bring my laptop. We got Sasktel Max installed yesterday and we get to watch it in all its glory on my 13" tv. Nothing beats it.

Anyways 2 days ago I purchase these metal shelving units from Walmart for our store room. I thought they were a fantastic deal at $16 per unit and they hold 60lbs per shelf. Great that'll do just fine and they are half the price of the plastic ones. It took me 2 hours and most of my sanity to assemble them. I realize why they are so cheap now. They were assebled in a Russian Tractor factory under forced labour conditions. Nothing lined up and everything was a little bent and of course they had HAD to use flat head screws for assembly. What sick peverted bastard would decide to design it with flat head screws? I would like to know so I can shove a screwdriver up his ass. Philips would have been so much easier to use or for the love of god get on the robertson bandwagon. Hex bolts would have been a god send, even torx or alan key bolts would have been fantasic. But no I'm stuck with flat head screws. By the end I was starting to lose dexterity in my fingers. Now that they are together they are good shelves and they fit perfectly in the store room but I don't think the ends justify the means in this case. Spend more money people!
