    All this bidet talk... there was this picture where I would have to wear my reading glasses while on the pooper to understand all those buttons/features.

    How about a bag of Dude Wipes for $4 instead?    Hahaha
    RTFM. You just have to deal with the four buttons (STOP, REAR, FRONT, DRYER) when you're in business, everything else can be preset and memorised before you start your business. Those buttons are BIG and in front so you don't need reading glasses nor twist your neck 110 degrees.

    Edit: do you clean your dishes or your car with Dude Wipes  ;)
    Lmao.   I have a wife you doesn’t mind doing dishes-when I cook- and a car wash membership to wash the truck.    

    So long as it’s not my $ I don’t care how you spend it.   Enjoy the bidet man!
    First off, RTFM sounded blunt, my bad, I meant (should have said) "I RTFM".

    Lyao? laugh harder and the sh!t will come off too, don't even need Dude Wipes.

    You're missing the point, it's not about who does the cleaning.

    Respect to your wife for cleaning up after you. To each his own I guess - I insist on cleaning up my cooking mess, especially after those buffet style cooks. Don't have the heart to impose the chore on my wife just because she doesn't mind, and I know she doesn't mind because I have to fight to be the dish washer.

    As for $ spent, it'll pay for itself in TP savings, and the cleanliness is priceless.

    Signed up for an iPhone 15 which comes in Friday. Also got an iWatch 8 45mm size for another 8 dollars a month. I plan to cancel Hulu to cover the monthly difference.

    Haha, I just recently seen those. At first I thought they were self driven, that would have been cool.
    I would be curious to try one.

    😂 I thought that too, just after posting. 

    Forgive me, as I forget now, but where are you located?
    @poster may have missed the bottom line, I've done that many times. I believe he's in northern ON.

    I did see some self driven zero turns but I did not stop and talk to anyone.  I bought my 72" Ferris zero turn for $10,500 in 2016 probably. The same mower in a 60" is $16k now. Pure craziness

    this last summer i saw someone using a remote controlled steam roller. i have to say i dont get it, give him a seat on it instead of walking infront backwards into traffic oblivious to where he is going.

    Those make sense for ditch work or trenches. Remote controlled stump grinders have been around for a long time.

    They use them to compact asphalt in tight spaces that a real roller won’t fit into.

    they were using it in an intersection of two main  rural highways. i big area where they just put in water gas and sewer. im not so sure standing in front walking backwards was a safety precaution..... ;)

    It’s quite possible the regular roller was too wide to fit in the pipe trench.

    Your own words “where they just put in water gas and sewer” I assume lines. I worked on road construction from 1979 to 2016.

    Actually the sewer and water went in, they filled and leveled the trenches. Put down a good layer of crushed stone, rolled it, then the hot top crew went in and finished it. A month later a new trench went in for the gas line. Then they patched it.

    Pretty much what I expected. $&@‘ utilities. For state roads we didn’t permit that . They would have had to do a directional bore to cross under. One of my “other duties “ was to relocate utilities prior to construction. We would even kick in money on part of the relocation IF they cooperated and moved while the others were. Otherwise they were trespassing and their lines might have concrete pumped into them.

    We had our road cut up 4 times for 3 utilities.  Do that math.

    Yep, the Federal government doesn’t hold itself to the same standards that it does when they give money to the states to build and repair roads. To cross a federally funded road any trenching was restricted to the initial construction of the road. Latter they would have to do a directional bore at least 3 feet deeper than the elevation of the road side ditches. Any pipes running parallel to the road had to be behind the sidewalk. You might be surprised at how many cities have no real idea where their water, sewer, natural gas lines run.

    i once watched a backhoe hoe in the historical section of one of the cities digging a trench. there was more concern about the old cobblestones being gently removed  than the water pipe underneath. the water pipe looked to be 20 inch or so, wood, with a clay liner. backhoe broke it. water pressure about 100 psi.  want to see ants fleeing a ditch as it filled in seconds. oops....have no idea how they fixed that.....
