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.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
