just found this wee gem in an old newspaper:

(jokingly this list was presented at a council meeting by the borough foreman  )

a) all pipe is to be made of a long hole, surrounded by metal or plastic, centred around the hole.

b) the inside diameter of all pipe must not exceed the outside diameter - otherwise the hole will be on the outside

c) all pipe is to be supplied with nothing in the hole so that water, steam 'and other stuff' can be put inside at a later date

d) all pipe should be supplied without rust. this can be more readily supplied at the job site (some vendors, however, are now able to supply pre-rusted pipe. if this is available in your area, this new product is recommended as it will save a great deal of time on the job site.)

e) flanges should be used on all pipes. flanges must have holes for bolts quite separate from the big hole in the middle.

f) when ordering 90 degree, 45 degree or 30 degree elbows, be sure to specify the right hand or left hand - otherwise you will end up going the wrong way.

g) be sure to specify whether you want level, uphill or downhill pipe. if you use downhill pipe for going uphill, the water etc will flow in the wrong direction.

h) all couplings should have either right or left hand threads. do not mix the threads, otherwise as the coupling is being screwed on to one end of the pipe, the other end is being unscrewed.

i) all pipes over 150 metres long should have the words, long pipe, clearly printed on each and so the drill crew will know it is a long pipe.

j) all pipes over three kilometres long must have the words, long pipe, clearly painted in the middle so the crew will not have to walk the entire length of the pipe to determine whether it is a long pipe or a short pipe.


sound advice, i'm sure
