This article was part of series of articles I wrote and presented as part of a safety training series aimed at journeyman level technicians working in heavy industry. Since the target audience were individuals familiar with the subject the language may be obscure.
I have lived a checkered life. While I hold a college degree, world travel, work and life experience inform my outlook a good deal more than institutional education. The result of my mottled career is a rich tapestry of experience to draw on. My love of reading and learning makes the library a second home and the internet a play ground. While I am able to write from experience on a wide variety of topics from how to build your wife a living room suit she'll adore to the nuances of creating world class steel. I can, and have, written on subjects as diverse as the origins of gogo boots to the dangers troubleshooting high voltage electrical systems from research. While employed for various manufacturers the ownership of my copy was automatically theirs, but I can show a few examples without breaking propriety.
