Alphabetically. Pliers come before screwdrivers.

I wonder how many years ago the dollar change machines have been able to take either side up.


they still don't at our local laundromat

and I can't be bothered to learn what the right way is - always takes at least two tries

I used to always go left foot first til I took my first dog through advanced training. We had to start everything on the right foot. I hopped around a lot those first few weeks trying to get that right foot going first. I still have trouble with choreography that starts on the right foot - gave me fits when I moved to a new studio where the instructor is right foot obsessed.

I heard the inventor of the USB connector died recently. The burial
ceremony was a little awkward because the coffin was lowered into the
grave but then had to be pulled back up and flipped it over before it would
fit correctly.

I try to leave the house with ninety-nine cents change in my pocket, but not
more than that. And never more than four pennies. The ideal mix is three
quarters, a dime, two nickels and four pennies.

Oh Urg, I do that too. Haven't you sometimes wished there was a big cheap machine to crush stuff like that, flatten it out

Inventors of the world, attention !!

@dalehileman,
A machine to press the foil flat? No way!
The enjoyment for me comes from the fold and press and how it feels so danged good between my fingers.

Cheap is relative. If you happen to have an extra $16,000 hanging around that you don't know what to do with, this is just the ticket:


PS: Some thing happens at the 3:20 where the guy does something incredibly dangerous.

175,000 Ton job can be had here for that price:

@Blickers,
Blick thanks for that. However, I had hoped for a bigger'n', one that might eg crush sheets of cardboard, eg, to make 'em flatter. It'd hafta be eg the size of a door

And yes, it'd be cheaper too

@Region Philbis,
No! It should always be over. Less chance of fingers contacting the wall and having select bacteria latch on.

('sides which, the over method is how it was always done in the various homes I grew up in)

@roger,
Not so. I was staying at a friend's house (female). I replaced the toilet paper roll, under. She yelled at me and called me a weirdo. She changed it to over.
