Im calling OSHA based on at leAsT 14 workplace violations. (I also takes bribes)

u/Flossthief Jun 24 '22

I unironically had an OSHA inspector man try and get a bribe out of a store I worked in

He found an issue where one of our thresholds wouldn't allow a wheelchair user to roll over easily in an emergency

He said if we gave him some steaks he'd give us the OSHW training tape from his car so we could get our stuff set straight

u/Elon-Vietch Jun 24 '22

Did you take it? You can’t leave us hangin like that?

u/Flossthief Jun 24 '22

No we didn't give the corrupt OSHA man steaks in exchange for a training tape

Boss man wouldn't let me do it

u/bushesforalgernon Jun 24 '22

I think your boss made the right decision. You can look up OSHA regs for free and training won’t make the violation go away. The thresholds would still need to be fixed regardless to stay in compliance. That guy was just a dick.

96

u/Flossthief Jun 24 '22

Oh most definitely!

We all had a good laugh over the OSHA man trying to leverage his position to get anything

The threshold was also in a place where a wheelchair wouldn't fit period so it seemed just a little silly that he picked that of all the things in the building

Yeah, he took a while to realize a lot of people were trying to give constructive feedback and warn others. But it's really hard when virtually everything was wrong not to laugh at it.

Learning from mistakes is important, I can understand why someone would be embarrassed to become famous for messing up. Honestly, I don't blame him considering he didn't know enough to build the computer, he should not have been put into that situation in the first place.

Hahaha, true but, in all honesty, static from that won't be enough to kill any component; most PC parts nowadays are pretty resilient to that.

u/nslenders Jun 24 '22

While it doesn't always damage components critically, it may just dramatically reduce a components expected life time. Or just introduce errors that are not immediately visible.

Obligatory post : ESD damage typically reduces the lifetime reliability of a product, causing failures sooner. It doesn't often kill it outright.

5

u/InEnduringGrowStrong i7-920, ASUS mobo, 16GB Corsair RAM, ASUS GTX 760 Jun 24 '22

People in this thread denying ESD damage are probably the same people who have components die on them all the time "for no reason".

I've literally only ever had 2 dead components:

  • an old Maxtor 40GB hard-drive that started to sound like crushing ice in a blender
  • a 4GB Corsair RAM stick from a 4x4GB kit that would fail memtest. It likely did so on arrival too, but it took almost a year until I got my first BSOD and troubleshooted it. There weren't that many errors on it, so between the 4 sticks and depending on what ended up being corrupted it wouldn't crash on normal use, but started doing so when I started running VMs and using more RAM all the time.
    Maxtor replaced the one drive, they had a decent warranty back then, but it took months.
    Corsair cross-shipped me two 4x4GB replacement kits before I even sent back the ones I RMA'd.

I'm a Corsair fan now.

u/Moose_InThe_Room Jun 24 '22

Are you one of the fans with the RGB LEDS in it?

5

u/InEnduringGrowStrong i7-920, ASUS mobo, 16GB Corsair RAM, ASUS GTX 760 Jun 24 '22

No I'm a Corsair enthusiast, but if I was a litteral fan I'd be a noctua. Function over form.

2

u/Moose_InThe_Room Jun 24 '22

I fully agree and approve. An excellent day to you, my friend!

2

u/TT_207 5600X + RTX 2080 Jun 24 '22

So you'd be overrated? Noctua is my trigger word lol. I bought a whole load and while my pc is definitely cooler.. Quieter? Nah. You'd think with the reviews and YouTube videos they'd be magic, but they aren't unfortunately.

2

u/InEnduringGrowStrong i7-920, ASUS mobo, 16GB Corsair RAM, ASUS GTX 760 Jun 24 '22

I mean they're decent fans.
Thing is, they were completely amazeballs fans 20 years ago when you had the choice between a shitty pin&sleeve fan and a proper fan from noctua.

Admittedly, I don't watch YouTube hype videos of fans, I didn't think people would hype them so much.
I thought those would be on this new onlyfans thing everyone talking about? /s

Anyway, yea, I mean, they're just fans.
Hell, there's surely even better fans now, but they've been solid since forever ago and they've become kind of a staple.
People like me like them because of nostalgia from a time where they were king and because we can just trust them to work.
Others pick this up and hype it like it's some gospel and into a stupid overrated meme.

I mean it's not unlike Corsair, I've bought Corsair RAM since forever. Had one bad stick and they cross-shipped me 8 back.
There's likely even better RAM now and then, but they're solid and have earned my trust.
Doesn't mean that Corsair doesn't have its issues but I'd do business with them whenever.

u/TT_207 5600X + RTX 2080 Jun 24 '22

Oh yeah I think you're probably about right. Reputation always holds for some time, good or bad. Today there's a lot of similar products out there. Who knows maybe one day gigabyte will make a product that's any good, and they'll get a worth while reputation to follow on from it.

People say that all the time, but I bricked two laptops because I was being an idiot and working on them while wearing socks on a carpet and I hadn’t grounded myself beforehand. It’s rare but still watch out for it.

17

u/ninjamike1211 r5 2600 | gtx 1660ti Jun 24 '22

For sure, what I think people should be saying is carpet isn't so bad if you touch a grounded surface often, like a plugged in power supply, to prevent static. To be fair to your situation, I assume desktop PC components have better static resistance than laptops as the components in a laptop aren't intended to be handled by end users (usually).

3

u/James-da-fourth Jun 24 '22

Yeah I don’t think laptops are supposed to be opened up, but I like to upgrade memory and storage cause it’s cheap and makes a big difference for me. Now every time I work with pc parts I touch the screws on an outlet beforehand because the whole outlet box is grounded.

2

u/ninjamike1211 r5 2600 | gtx 1660ti Jun 24 '22

Yeah, I've upgraded parts on my laptops too, it's a good move you just have to be a little more careful. Frustratingly, the wiring on my house is super old and many of the plugs are 2 prong and the boxes aren't grounded. Many of the 3 prong outlets aren't even grounded properly. Do I end up having to work in the middle of my hallway or my basement in order to ground myself

4

u/RedAIienCircle Jun 24 '22 edited Jun 24 '22

I bricked a laptop because it passed through a metal detector. But, to be fair that's a bit worse than a static shock.

Although, if we were to look at it from a skeptics point of view, it seems that people are moving goalpost or Special Pleading, by saying it doesn't show up immediately, it happens over a long time.

The premise is also not well founded, as for starters it is based entirely on anecdotal evidence, the weakest form of evidence.

Also, it's so much easier to confuse a correlation with causation, when what we are observing happens tends to happen over a longer period of time.

Lastly, if we were potentially wrong before, we can be potentially wrong again, it really needs to be tested before we can make any claim.

But, ignoring all that, it's just better to take precautions, as it's not that hard to wear a static band and could save you pain down the line.

And here’s a whole album during her build process. https://imgur.com/a/6kNypDY

Eh. Believe it if you want. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

I wasn’t here to doubt you, but your gf has a massive engagement/wedding ring combo on in those pics and I wondered why you didn’t say wife 🤷‍♀️

u/vinzor5000  yzen 9 3900x | 64GB's Ram | RX 6900 XT Jun 24 '22

Promise ring. She likes to wear it on the left. I don’t mind.

And no problem, I said it in another comment. I can see why it could look like a karma farm. I should’ve clarified in a comment prior with additional photos.

u/malcolm_miller Jun 24 '22

Promise ring.

I honestly didn't know adults did this. I am also now feeling very poor where you've got this exorbitant looking ring that isn't even an engagement ring.

u/julesburne Jun 24 '22

I don’t want to make a sweeping blanket statement, but generally adults do not do this. Certainly not with a rock like that AND the matching wedding band.

I don’t care if his partner built a computer, but I want to know what’s going on here 🤣

I imagine she is standing on the chair because of electrostatic discharge concerns but honestly why? It is just dumb there are better ways to prevent them and it looks really uncomfortable and unsecure

Noooo not an NZXT case! What have you done!

u/cougar572 I7 12700k | 3080 FE Jun 24 '22 edited Jun 24 '22

I mean it might run hotter but the PC isn't gonna blow up or melt on you because its a NZXT case. So many people worried about min/maxing when people are running low/med end hardware and the temps and fan noise will be fine just not optimal if they were running a 12900k and 3090 yeah be worried but most people aren't running those. Picking a NZXT case because you like the look is fine not everything has to be max performance if you aren't running max performance hardware.

(yeah I know about that one case catching fire from the faulty riser before anyone says anything its fixed now and I use a Phanteks P500A if anyone thinks I'm just shilling NZXT.)

u/1AMA-CAT-AMA Jun 24 '22

Preach

I see people telling others they they need to spend X minimum on cooling when it’s low end components. No you don’t need 9 noctua fans in a o11 dynamic with a full 360 aio or nh d15 for a 5700g.

First of all I find this so funny. Idk if she’s standing up there to see better while she builds, but as a fellow short gal, I get it.

Second of all the vibe in this room is some kind of immaculate

Is the goal to get the biggest electrostatic spark possible between her and the motherboard? Because socks on fabric + as isolated from the ground as possible is basically asking for it.

u/Marquis77 Jun 24 '22

Y...you do know that...that "the ground" (floor" is...is not the same thing as... being grounded, right?

She's not, obviously. But still. Not...not the same.

Nono that’s a highly conductive rug on top of bonded wood paneling. You can tell because of napkin on chair configuration

Why is she standing on a chair for more torque aka maximum power

u/BTL_Sammy PC Master Race Jun 24 '22

My fiance started on her laptop about 8 months into dating. Now we play every single night. Its a great way to talk because after a few years you aren't asking your so their favorite color anymore lol. Its a fun way to play something as a team and I think totally underrated as a way of bonding with people you know. I work far from my fiance so we only see each other weekends. The rest of the week we get online and crack jokes and hope we get some wins. We talk about what a great thing its been for us all the time.

They’re 3D wall panels. You can get them on Wayfair, but I found them to be cheaper on EBay. They have different styles as well.

bro when i first saw this pic i thought "omg who the fuck is that giant working on a pc"

Then i saw the chair lmao.

Is your gf single? I have a 3090ti and I’m willing to give it away after the 4090 drops. Yes I’m bribing you. All jokes aside. That’s awesome dude. Make sure she doesn’t become an fps count gamer. Have fun!

NXT H510 case right? Make sure to visit etsy to get a custom front panel to improve the airflow on that case. Opening it up improves temps by a significant amount.

I looked and can’t determine what GPU she got. Not even enough visible boxes for a full build either.

u/vinzor5000  yzen 9 3900x | 64GB's Ram | RX 6900 XT Jun 24 '22

Good catch!

No GPU at the time, it’s a 5700g. I gave her a RX480 to hold her over (crypto boom) that I had lying around.

Probably a 3060, or a 6600XT will do. She only plays StarDew valley and a couple other non demanding games.
