Today's a good day to DIE.
    #3773314 - 02/13/05 07:37 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

So I have since started this new job at a foundry of all places. For those of you who do not know, this is where they melt down metal to create liquid iron. They then use that to pour into molds and create parts for cars for us to drive in and die.....eventually.

OH it's all good except that as the days go on I am perpetually re-assured of the death factor involved in what I am going to eventually (tonight) do. Which is working on the melt deck and making sure I dont get sprayed with 2800+ degree liquid metal. Which is a very real possibility.

A mold exploding, "slag" getting clogged in the pour, Iron overflowing out of the casing, any of these things will cause an explosion of liquid IRON that apparently will drench a 100 yard radius.

OH BU BU BU BUT WAIT IT GETS WORSE! FACT: if you introduce water into liquid iron the o2 and the carbon seperate and the water then instantly ( about 0 seconds flat) expands to 1600 times it's original mass. This causes a violent explosion of liquid metal and foce that is extremely powerful.

In lamens terms, 20oz (yes ounces) of water into a furnace, JUST 1 furnace and the entire plant + 8 block radius is obliterated. I AM NOT KIDDING, I have seen the training videos and the explosion is nothing short of fucking raw unbridled force.

WHY am I telling you this, because that's what were supposed to do right ? Share here ? And I am working my first 10 hour shift on the Melt Deck.

FUCKIT, If I am to be sprayed with molten metal and die then so be it. No more work, No more stress.

ARGGHHHHHHH! FUCK THE WORLD !!!!

Not entirely. This town is so damn small that my only option was to go through a head hunter (temp agency) to try and find work after not being able to so on my own. And believe you me I looked everywhere.

It's the only thing going and my only option at this point. So to answer your question yes and no.

uh, not so much. Right now through the temp agency it's $8.00/hr. But when your hired on ( which is supposed to be quickly ) it goes to $12+/hr. which is good for here in this geographical location, but not much in the grand scheme of what I am used to based on my skill and experience.

I still don't understand how you could blame anyone but yourself for doing a job that you fear may cost your life. I would rather be unemployed and living on the streets than doing something I feared or loathed. The only way I could understand you feeling like you are forced into it is if you have children to care for. Other than that I see no reason to take a job you fear.

But then again, thats just me. Theres a lot of things I would never do. And I've lived on the streets before, by choice even. I do not fear the lack of money and home. At least not as much as I would despise doing some jobs.

Also, moving is always an option. If your town is so depressed and there is no way to make a decent living then get out. And the standard "I can't move, I'm too poor" response doesn't work with me. Leave your negativity, fears, and inhibitions behind and the whole world will open up to you.

Maybe the job isnt all as dangerous as you make out.

Im pretty sure these things happen very rarely, if their was great danger you wouldnt be allowed to do it.

:confused:...to operate a broom or shovel? Or to do selective interior demolition in an occupied courthouse or hospital without making any noise or dust? Carrying bricks?? Or taking out a load bearing wall without causing structure failure...Depends.
