Ha! Nerds Rule

So Stingray posts about a smoking-mandatory bar and harkens back to his "Angry Hour" concept, perhaps the best idea for a bar that I have ever read (unless you have to pay the insurance). Of course all the tables have to be bolted down, leading one commenter to suggest using left-hand-threaded hardware with handy adjustable wrenches for attempted unbolting and/or vigorous exercise, and another to add, "....make them metric wrenches, and whitworth fasteners."

I have bad news for you. And that's why geeks and nerds rule!

Left-handed hardware and ratchet wrenches that only ratchet in the wrong direction...

Madam, you flatter me. And as we all know, that will get you everywhere. Your drinks of any stripe are on the house, and if I'm not tending bar and you get any guff, well, just hit the bastard with a wrench and I'll fire him in the morning.

WV: Flizin. A combination of flaming and fizzing. A staple of Angry Hour.

It would be a mildly-irate hour until I find out the table is bolted down with BSW hardware. Then it is angry hour ;-)

Whitworth threads are the bestest, having round corners, so as to avoid stress concentrations.
