When I worked at a sawmill during high school and early college, I stacked wood and helped guide logs off a forklift and onto rails leading to a huge saw.

Our required footwear was a pair of boots that had not only steel toes, but a steel shank (sole) and steel tongue that was actually over the laces. They were incredibly heavy and didn't breathe at all - like putting your feet into heavy ovens. After a couple weeks you don't really notice them though, till you take them off - tan lines at the top and the rest of your foot is bright white and wrinkled, as if you had taken a 10 hour bath.

Don't forget to live before you die.
