Stuff & Things from Jeff
  1. The inside of all factory machines included giant gears and enough space between them for a human body to fit.
  2. You know when a person was unemployed when the music gets sad when they come on screen.
  3. Don't put cocaine in your oatmeal.
  4. People high on cocaine can single handedly take down a troupe of bad guys.
  5. Homeless people are easily identifiable by their bare feet, and a single smudge across their face.
  6. Whenever it's necessary to replace the railing on a multiple floor drop, it's completely okay to simply put up a sign that says "DANGER" and NOTHING ELSE.
  7. It was very easy to be hired and fired from a job in the 1930's.
  8. It was common place for a worker to bring a lunch that consists of an entire STALKING of celery, ¼ of a pie, a whole flipping chicken.
