    Back when I was a construction contractor I HATED all the bureaucratic bullshit I had to deal with, in particularly with OSHA. Always seemed like a plot to slow my guys down and kick me in the wallet.
    Then this damn woman drug me off to Asia and I got to see this kind of crap. EVERYWHERE. End of the day, I guess there are people in this world who need legislation to inform them of common sense and safety concerns.
