    Good news. Unconsciously influenced by having run a session on Kitchen knife safety, I have successfully modified my thumb so the bit on the end no longer gets in the way. Result!

    I did that once. It grows back. The part in the middle while it's growing back and the nerves are slightly exposed so you feel every slight movement, is really quite annoying!

    Have you ever wondered why mountain climbers rope themselves together?
    It's to stop the sensible ones going home.

    a tall, branching species of aloe, indigenous to Southern Africa (as if you didn't know - Google, other search engines are available, is your friend. At least, it is mine!)

    It's like a lava tree, but with very different uses.

    The former can provide an ingredient of a gel that can be impregnated into paper, to make it feel soft.

    The soft paper can then be used to clean up after using the latter.

    Why do people talk and write about having an 'outside toilet'? They aren't really 'outside' at all - they're usually surrounded by three walls, a door, and a roof, so they're "within sides", or "inside".

    An "outside toilet", as far as I'm concerned, is a latrine trench or a cat-hole in wild country.

    Ever tried that on a cold damp building site?

    Actually, I'm going with "it was damp resistant" which I suppose is useful for not having to keep it in the house, or remember to take it out with you, but not so good on the old soaking up properties. By god but it scratched.
