It’s a Ripoff: How to Handle Work that Infringes on Your Own

Hang your TV on a pole

Gerry wraps a TV round the pole. Sexy than this 2-pole version I received in 2006. Guess with the sleekness of LCD TVs nowadays, you can do away with the extra pole. "I wanted a TV stand to mount my 32" LCD. I fabricated the two rails that attach to the TV from steel shelf bracket vertical rails.

The Self-Confidence Con

There is a funny concept among the softly-spoken, the meek, the apologetic excuse-makers that there is some ‘kind’ of person who is confident, capable and calm in the face of adversity.
