Many years ago Mr. Lime purchased a Makita 12" sliding compound miter saw similar to the one above. When he brought it home and unloaded it he caressed it lovingly, cooed at it, and declared it better than sex. I arched a single eyebrow at him as I responded, "If it's dangerous teeth you want, all you have to do is ask." He was disinclined to accept my offer.
Today, I worked with him to help build a large deck around a pool. It's the first time in the many years he has owned this thing that I was allowed to use it. It was groovy and I liked being able to cut through a pressure treated 4x4 like warm butter but I'd like to state unequivocally and quite emphatically, it was NOT better than sex. However, sitting on a board while he cut it with a circular saw was mildly arousing.
