A Canadian man has spent the last 15 years digging out his basement using model construction vehicles.

Jalopnik said:

A Canadian guy named Joe has been digging out the basement of his house using nothing but radio-controlled scale model construction equipment. . . since 1997. Yes, you read that right — he's been digging out his basement for 15 years — with nothing but little R/C tractors, diggers and even a miniature rock crusher! Amazing.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Nah.... I get this.  I was a commercial and residential painter for a few years.  It could be hard work at times but mostly it was pretty repetitious and almost soothing.  The mind on autopilot and you could spend your days dreaming while your hands were busy :yes:
