I got a deal on a batch of linotype and had to get it moved today. I found out some very interesting data in the process.
#1 You can put 240 pounds of lino in a 5 gallon bucket.
#2 I can't lift 240 pounds anymore
#3 If you do lift 240 pounds in a 5 gallon bucket the bottom falls out.
#4 Even 100 pound buckets are no fun to load into the trunk of a car.
#5 When you drop the lead off in the garage don't set it behind the wife's car even for a little while
#6 There is nothing like the warm fuzzy feeling of looking at a 1/2 ton of lead and knowing it's all MINE!
