This is it...

Regardless of what happens, this guy can spend the Rest of his life smiling over a $20 investment in fucking with people.. Some day a swat team will show up on some bastard's porch because he had some fun building a new deck.

That wood looks a little bit on the light side to be treated lumber. Your better off using the composite boards instead. A deck that last 30 years....sure sure, maybe if you seal it and use the right materials it could last 15 years maybe. Let's be honest, there are few who will take the time to power wash, treat the wood and seal it each season or every other season. Not trying to claim I am any expert, I've just built a few decks in my youth with my dad and as a job at one point.

I built a few decks in my time with treated lumber 25 years ago and they stand strong today. Treated lumber over the last 12 years has been utter shit. It rots fast.

This deck (from the picture) sucks and I don't see any footings or joist hangers.

If that is the case then cool, but I doubt that picture is using what you are talking about. Also, there are other issues with the way the deck is being constructed, which others have already pointed out in the thread.

Arsenic in the wood treatment hasn't caused any issues from what I have seen.

They made specific fasteners to use with treated lumber due to the corrosive nature of the treatments. I know that much for a fact. I once brought the wrong screws to my boss on a job (was 14 and summer job) and was lectured about how a screw isn't just a screw, and that there are specific types to use depending on the job you're doing.

This should be in the universal deck-building manual, but not until it's near the end. That way the next guy using the manual has no clue why there's a skeleton below his deck until he's finished, and then leaves it there or puts a 2nd one in for the next guy.

The manual is called, "How Not To Be A Faggot" and unfortunately obama repealed it and instated the, "How To Be A Mighty Faggot."

The best shit posting time capsule idea is to find the highest mountains and drill a hole to the very bottom of them and leave shit like a few human teeth a flip flop and a butter fly to trip out the future archeologists.

What’s wrong with stealing content Reddit doesn’t own in the first place?

If you want that place to burn to the ground that is exactly what you should do.

it was originally a thread posted to reddit, so it's reddit OC.

And technically, everything you post to reddit belongs to reddit.

That makes it worth 2 downvoats mate. Imgur almost shut down voat as well as ended a popular image host that was created by a voat user. So yeah, Fuck you mate.

I don't care if it's stolen from imgur as long as it isn't hosted there. I will not click any link to give them any traffic. Doesn't mean that content from there should be ignored, imo.
