Homemade Scales

Started by Callum Sutherland May 26, 2015. 0 Replies

Hello,        I own a Victorinox Camper, and I had the thought that it would be quite cool to make my own scales to replace the standard red ones. I am a competent woodworker but quite inexperienced…Continue

Hey GentsOn my Tinker (or small Tinker, I can't remember) one of the red plastic pieces that forms the handle has come loose a little bit. It moves maybe half a millimeter but is annoying in that it…Continue

I owned and used swiss army knives all of the time when I was a kid. In fact I think all of the kids did. Anyway, due to moving around a lot, god only knows where they went. I recently ordered myself "The Spartan" model. I chose this model specifically to handle taks I perform often: cutting, opening bottles, opening wine, the reamer for puncturing thick material and sometimes the can opener.

I miss having one of these handly little red knives and I look forward to owning one again.

So, I was just using my Victorinox super tinker yesterday at work, and a guy i work with came upto me and said "wow, you really use one of those?" after asking what he meant he said that he gave those up when he was in grade school. Now I love tactical folders more than the next guy, but i asked him if he could open a bottle of wine with his knife or screw in a screw. I love my victorinox.

The Cost Disease

[I]n the past fifty years, education costs have doubled, college costs have dectupled, health insurance costs have dectupled, subway costs have at least dectupled, and housing costs have increased by about fifty percent. US health care costs about four times as much as equivalent health care in other First World countries; US subways cost about eight times as much as equivalent subways in other First World countries...[A]ll of the numbers above are inflation-adjusted....And this is especially…See More

"Yeah I understand it, just wanted to point out that semantic shifts have happened with the Jewish race as well. Also, it's probably more justified than the other shifts for the reasons you mentioned, except for maybe the word negro."

"It has to do with how it is used.  A non-jewish person saying "Oh, you know Peter, he's a real Jew..." often carries some negative connotations. The way the term has been used by some, nearly puts in in a pejorative category -…"

"That's true, but I do think it's noteworthy that some people get their feathers ruffled when you say "Jew," the noun. Now it's "Jewish person.""
