The amazing human mind and body. Dexterity and thought melded in one of our finest hours.
Thanks for the find.

I know a better, nearly perfect soundtrack though:
-



Coughing from the smoke of a black roof chimney
Marching to the beat of a hot roof o'er me
Hey, ho, here we go
We're off to work again
Bells are ringing
We are singing
Joyous in our industry

I love my job
He loves his job
Pull that lever
Start the engine
Pump the water, build the pressure
Push the piston, press the button
Pump the water, build the pressure
Push the piston, press the button
It's the perfect job

Happy workers
Happy workers
Happy workers

I love my job
He loves his job
Pull that lever
Start the engine
Pump the water, build the pressure
Push the piston, press the button
Pump the water, build the pressure
Push the piston, press the button
Pump the water, build the pressure
Push the piston, press the button
It's the perfect job

Happy workers
Happy workers
Happy workers

I love my job
He loves his job
Pull that lever
Sister, start the engine
Pump the water, yeah
Honey, build the pressure
Pump the water, build the pressure
Push the piston, press the button
It's the perfect job

...It's the perfect job

You understand don't you, that they'd have no idea of what you're talking about right?

Plus, it being 1936 and all, the alternative to sore backs was often slow starvation and abject poverty.

And after all, their bigger problem was that many of them would be sending off sons to war, or going themselves in just a few years.

Wrong again.

You understand don't you, that the science of ergonomics started a long time ago (ancient Greece) and there had been a number of books written on it by 1936.

Businesses didn't really worry about it though, until such time as their state adopted workers comp laws.

Just one more thing to blame unions for......looking after injured workers.

I would be very surprised if any of those factory workers, had ever heard the word "ergonomics," no matter that Greeks had studied it (and hadn't called it "ergonomics," since the word had yet to be coined.)

Here, we find a lovely reference to the word's first known usage, in, my goodness, 1949:

Ergonomics - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

And you know this, because? You know their mental state? You can assert that they were immune from worker's injury lawsuits? That the workers would have freely complied with procedures designed to protect their health?

Could you elaborate please upon this supernatural insight?

Actually, I am fairly dismissive of the humanitarian concerns of labor organizations which produce amazingly wealthy and powerful "labor leaders" who are ferried about in black limousines.

To put it another way, ranchers watch out for the health of their livestock, and certainly wish them to feel safe and protected.

I didn't say that they did. I said that the coming war was a bigger problem for them. They didn't have to be aware of it.

Of course, the more politically and socially aware would have known this to be a distinct possibility by 1936. Here's someone who had probably figured it out.


You should remember, I know what I'm talking about, it's a policy a I recommend.

You know there are people in this world who are so ..."other" that it is impossible to get through to them even as a gesture of humanity. I think a certain amount of cold pricklies minus warm fuzzies culminates in the rabid blogger, the acrid and sanctimonious poster, the gang flammer...
There's my philosophy for the week. Hope you enjoyed it.

Although it gives a short lived satisfaction, proving your ignorance can also be quite taxing.

After all, it's quite a daunting task.

Ergonomics A History

Quote:
The term ergonomics however, came up in 1857 in a philosophical writings of Wojciech Jastrzebowski.

In 19th century, Fredric Winslow Taylor introduced ‘Scientific Management’ proposing ways to improve productivity in factories. Frank and Lilian Gilberth built on that principal to develop ‘Time and Motion Studies’ theory in the 1900s. The theory deals with ways to improve performance by cutting down unnecessarily steps and improving tools in a factory production line.
Taylor's book was written in 1911.

Actually, you don't.

You are however, extremely pompous and have an audacious amount of ill-founded confidence in yourself.

I am actually a little impressed at this self confidence, given that most people would be humiliated after being shown a fool so many times.

Not you though.

Again, more slowly. . . I asserted that the factory workers wiould not know what you meant if you brought up ergonomics.

But I'm sure they'd be fascinated by you concern for their welfare. (I'm not being entirely serious here.)

By the way, I note your concern for the working conditions of long dead men, but you haven't told us what you're doing to help living ones. (Agitating for silly and corrupt unions doesn't count, that mostly helps workers in third world countries where union thuggery sends formerly American jobs.)
