Also said the coil of welding cable hanging on the welder would jump a couple inches every time the arc made and broke. That's pretty often when it gets to sputtering.

I believe him, he was a guy that wasn't prone to embellishment.
What's wrong with a little embellishment if it enhences the story...

I went over a jump this big.. Goes back with freind couple days later.. Oh, must have been at a different spot...

If I defend myself I am attacked.

My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.

My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.

I'd like to think of something smart, but I don't want to hurt myself.
