REAL men read manuals. Little boy's don't.
i agree 100%. i have a shirt i got from my Computer Networking teacher in high school white text on clack shirt reading "RTFM" when the administration asked he responded with "read that fu.... FINE Manual"
and in my current career path (aviation maintenance) they DONT want you to memories what your supposed to to. they want you to know WHERE to find it in the publications and then follow the steps EVERY TIME. even if its a carburetor you have rebuilt 100000 times... complacency breads sloppy and sloppy can cost lives.

Boss, hes right. i was making a little joke their but as above... manuals are their for a reason... we should all slow down for a few seconds and read. if we did it right we just confirm what we know. if we screwed it up we may save our self's thousands on fried heard wear
