Dream job for some, for others a constant struggle to not want to put your fingers in there…


The white bit is the silicone; the red is the amalgamated fingertips of all the previous holders of the job.


Oh oh, wait, sorry sorry, I have to re-purpose this old joke…

“I put my dick into the silicone roller. We both got fired.”


I’m waiting for the edit featuring googly eyes and stick-figure arms.


you can have that job if you try.


Oh god the way the roll peels off the roller…





Oooooh! I used to love using the sheeter.


Oh, that video gives me the creeps! You only have to see one horrific “death by roller” video to never look at these videos the same again.



I’ve seen many things fall into a rubber mill including cellphones, eyeglasses and most disturbingly, a bird.


Certain candy making looks just like this. Are you sure this is silicone?


Tom said to himself that it was not such a hollow world, after all. He had discovered a
great law of human action, without knowing it—namely, that in order to make a man or a
boy covet a thing, it is only necessary to make the thing difficult to attain. If he had been
a great and wise philosopher, like the writer of this book, he would now have
comprehended that Work consists of whatever a body is obliged to do, and that Play
consists of whatever a body is not obliged to do. And this would help him to understand
why constructing artificial flowers or performing on a tread-mill is work, while rolling
ten-pins or climbing Mont Blanc is only amusement. There are wealthy gentlemen in
England who drive four-horse passenger-coaches twenty or thirty miles on a daily line, in
the summer, because the privilege costs them considerable money; but if they were
offered wages for the service, that would turn it into work and then they would resign.


I was hoping it was candy:frowning:


Not replying to the post itself, but JESUS CHRIST, BoingBoing, what’s with all the scripts?


If you’re not the customer, you’re the product.


But but but he’s not brushing down the rolled slabs of dough with melted butter, nor placing tiny chips of hard butter, between foldings and repeated rollings. Am I missing something here re: croissant dough?




You’re not missing anything. :slight_smile: The butter comes later in the video.


No one wants to know how the sausage is made.
