Goddammit @con77. This was supposed to be a light and funny post, not a depressing existential observation of human devolution.

Ingenuity or general handiness is separate and distinct from "common sense". Common sense is more along the lines of... if you just laid it across the bed rails it would fall out as you swerved (since you're an unlicensed illegal immigrant, clearly) all over the wrong side of the road.

You judge too harshly and must be disappointed often if ad-hoc building a rack without cutting pieces is common sense... shit I probably spent 2 hours in the lumber aisle picking out which lengths of 2x4's to buy for a TINY shed design I had put together, and I'm semi-handy and smart though far from being a pro.

Hooooooowever, taken out of context... I agree entirely with you. Just not sure THIS is the post I would have applied it to.

I'm with you on this. Guy obviously has no trailer, and can use the wood again. Its very practical and shows common sense and ingenuity.

I guess if we're being crafty they could paint the ass end of the 4x. Or pour red chalk from a snap line if they dont have paint. Or have their girlfriend sit on the 4x and bleed for awhile. All kinds of ways to get that 4x legal.

That's awesome, I like the way those guys think. Everyone it too obsessed with their outlook their forget to use ingenuity and make something that looks far from the norm but is much less expensive. I only find these types of people with either full time jobs or take time off on the weekend to make their own projects.
