Man, I’ve had minor operations performed on me in hospital rooms a lot dirtier than this car factory.
Well, robots are going to take your job maybe. Not a problem for these Australian workers. An army of C3POs ain’t taking their spot on the construction food chain. Every time I see a breathless article describing robots building houses, I know it’s written by someone who has no idea just how fast houses could get built if everyone just got out of the way. It’s already super-modular and mechanized. It takes forever to build a house because a banker, an architect, a building inspector, a conservation committee, a zoning board, and a bunch of NIMBY neighbors hamstring it every step of the way. Robots won’t speed up the process. You know, unless they’re hunter-killers.
There’s a Hydraulic Press Channel. Of course there is. I don’t know how I ever got along without it. What sort of music do they have? Heavy metal, of course.
Of course this is the Spanish version of ropemaking. If you prefer the American method, first, buy an enormous pickup truck and a house in the suburbs. Then plant grass. Water the grass. Mow the grass. Watch the grass turn brown. OK, forget the grass. Drive to the nearest Harbor Freight in the giant pickup truck. Buy rope.
It’s an ancient tradition, but it works.
