Tip For The Novice User #7986 - The Human Body
« on: Mar 05, 11, 01:02 PM »
Take note of the distressing fact that the speakers loaded with 2 whole bags of sand-ballast each before putting them aside upstairs a year ago have not grown any lighter - however we are all a year older, and now moving them back down the stairs hurts...

hurts...
...........lots and lots, and makes your eyes water too....... ;D

Look on the bright side...if you complete the journey down the stairs with the speakers without falling down and breaking every bone in your body, you will have done very well........ ;D

Could you not just have wired them in upstairs and turned up the volume?  :gig:

At least you had gravity to help

Coming down with  a heavy weight is easier than going up and thank your lucky stars you didn't have Norman helping you
He would have stood them on the top step & pushed and picked up the pieces at the bottom  :angel3:

But seriously we all are getting older & things we used to do , we can't .

Don't suppose taking the sand out was an option?

Not an easy one, although technically possible... it was poured in through a funnel into a bag that was then heat-sealed, so getting it out would involve splitting the bag and attempting to pour it out through the same hole and catch all the sand... there'd probably be more lifting involved rather than less.

Not after all the trouble he had getting it there... no.

He did manage to get me out of the way though before he started 'moving' things. Men!  and he has the cheek to tell me not to do any lifting etc. when he is out and I'm on my own.
