I am writing a post about the brilliant trauma course...but in the meantime...allow me to present ABB wielding an actual jaws of life. This photo taken shorty after I cut a car door off (hence my demented appearance).
|Does this jaws of life make my thighs look big??|
The really hilarious part was that the firefighter handed it to me, showed me where the 'on' button was and then told me to 'work away'.
Yeah, in Canada I would have had to take a 2 day safety course, sign release forms in triplicate, show proof of tetanus immunization, and demonstrate to a workplace hazard team my ability to handle the machine before being allowed to turn it on.
What could possibly be more enjoyable than handling a machine that crushes metal at 600lbs per square inch???
Oh 'twas a good day, so it was.
