This man is a hollow block specialist. He gets paid P 1.5 ($ 0.032) a block and says he will do 500 a day. He had planned two days for the job, but the first day’s work was cut short by rain.

“Don’t give me any of that intelligent life crap, give me something I can blow up!” – best quote from the best science fiction movie you’ve never heard of.
