    I coined it when I worked in engineering back in the 80s, one of the other apprentices was a bit ham fisted and always used the biggest bar there was to tighten bolts instead of using a torque wrench. As a result I was usually the one who ended up removing said broken bolts as I seemed to have the knack. It kind of resurfaced when I was teaching spannering on bikes to a friend who was one of those guys who could design anything but struggled to tie his own shoelaces.

    Kind of like it and it is pretty apt.:sneakiness:

    I'm glad that was the genesis. Men in tights is OK in some things like Shakepeare plays and harleydood fests, other than that it's a little strange.

    I just saw pictures of the Pani on Facebook (was my pit friend from last season). Insurance is going to cover it! I seriously thought about coming out, but my track bike isn't quite ready yet.
