Sounds goofy but there is actually a drill system which will drill

Get the new ones with the steel cable on it. You hold onto the cable with
one hand, turn the drill on with the other. When the cable is wound tight
around the shaft, or you want to reverse, you simply pull on the cable to

What they wanted was a quarter-inch hole."
No, but one guy in the class did work as a "counselor" for a cemetery.
He did allow, during one break, that a fringe benefit of his seemingly
somber job was the widows; several were, in his words, "hornier than a bag
of toads." On a similar note, my ex-brother-in-law said he got some strange

attributed it to his looks, but I think it was the incessant vibration.
