    We’ve probably all read this. No? Well, it’s like this: a man asked his friend if he had started his new annual diet, yet? The friend replied, “ yes he had. *He thought he’d finally found one that would work. It’s called the BBC Diet, Buy Bigger Clothes."



    From Lug Nut & Lag Bolt*



    *You can call a bolt or nut anything

    you want, but a lag bolt is actually

    not a bolt, it’s a screw, regardless

    how large. In the industry they are

    known as lag screws./ bb.

    @Louise Williams Just a cartoon some newspapers carry entitled Lug Nut & Lag Bolt. I read them sometime because i used to work in the industry. My comment was 'just an added attraction./bb.' Lug nuts could be found at the automotive stores and lag screws at any hardware store. Okay?

    I've never heard them called lag bolts, only lag screws. I do know the difference between a screw and a bolt. In many cases the same item can be used as either.
