Man vs Machine
Being da average DIY kinda guy, I have an arsenal of hand tools to which to work with but I also have a bunch of power tools to make it 'easier'.
Aftah spending half da day sanding a bunch of 2x4's with an orbital sander for a bench project, it wasn't quite da smoothness I was looking for so on a whim I grabbed my hand sander and voila! Not only was it da right texture but it also sanded much 'easier' and fastah.
Wassup Wit Dat! I told myself as I was shaking my head.
How can a machine dat'll spin ovah 13,000 rpm's be out performed by a manual hand sander? But you know wat? In thinking dat, I was reminded why I have so many WWD! moments - it's just da rule of WWD!. Wen I stay doing da job manually, I wish for a machine and wen I stay using da machine, da results of a manual is bettah. No can win.
Then I was thinking at how many machines are being used or sought aftah wen just doing it manually would suffice or even out perform wat was supposd to be fastah and easier with one machine?
There are manual and electric staplers, date stamps and even vacuums! There are whisks vs mixers, hammer vs nail gun, gas/electric vs push mowers - for every hand tool, there's an electric counterpart even da basic screwdrivers. Obviously there are many more times wen da machine will outperform da manual method but call me nostalgic - or 'old' school - but there's something about getting your hands dirty and some dirt undah your fingahnails. 😀
How many of you prefer to get your hands dirty rather than look for da nearest available electrical socket? Do you succumb to da infomercials touting why you haven't done it da 'fastah and easier' way? How many of you have an electric toothbrush? Ok, how many of you have an electric toothbrush.... but still brush like it's a manual? 😆 No lie now.
