And people think I'm insane for wrestling two 12008's into racks.  By
myself.  With my bad arm (broken titanium rod inside broken arm for 1 1/2
years, email for copies of a really pretty x-ray!) and bad leg (partially
fused crushed ankle from auto accident).

I think the day after, I was praying to $deity for one of these things the
next time I have to move heavy stuff like that.
