I have seen the "sex screws" before, however I did not know what they were called. Handy Dan showed a picture and their name.  So I just figured I'd get a couple. However, I was apprehensive when I entered Google to see them. What would I get entering that........PORN?

Sure sounds like it could happen.:D:)

Just bigger versions of the bolts used on saws.    Have used "sex screws"  many a time.  

Maybe leave of the s, and try  sex screw?

I just tried it...came up for Home Depot...and Stainless.

Why do they call them "sex bolts" instead of "connector bolts."    Oh, wait, nevermind  :blush:

I have had similar experiences. You would not believe the simple mistakes that are often overlooked. Having been there and done that, myself, many times! I always had my guys read and review each others investigation reports. Hopefully, they caught and corrected ALL of the mistakes before my final review. Sometimes, the simplest mistakes got overlooked by everyone...including me. If the investigation was for anything other than in-house the report was vetted by multiple sets of eyes, prior to providing it to the customer. If it had the potential of being a litigated case the in-house counsel always signed off.

 

The problem is, that the mind usually sees what it expects to see. Studies have shown, that, the mind fills in the blanks. We don't always "read" what is actually on the page. That is why "six" slipped by as "sex". Sometimes it can be embarrassing and sometimes it can cause some real heartburn.

 

Good story DAB!

the other problem is that if you know someone is going to review your work, you mentally count on them to catch mistakes.

 

and your reviewer expects you to get it right, so they really don't critically read it either.

 

then the boss has to sign off, and he knows he has 2 good men preparing and reviewing, so he just signs it, unread.

 

oops.

That is a good link I will bookmark that.

Wonder if the "Loveless" is the politically correct "sex" bolts.
