The official dumb question thread.

    So I'm thinking a thread where we can ask random questions, ones not worthy of their own thread, and hope learned folks respond. Like one that got raised here a couple months back: "How long do you use your razor blade for before changing blades?" Hey, it's useful info for someone.

    No, the idea is not to mimic Random Thoughts, Moddy, so I hope you might let this live.

    My random question to start the thread: What type of cutlery is good cutlery? I have to buy some for the parents (no, not as a Father's Day gift), and I wanna buy them something decent. They all look the same to me at Target.

    I don't know about cutlery, but I have a question about squirrels.

    How do you keep the things out of your flower pots? I have one I feed, and whenever he runs out of corn, he digs in my flower pots. He never eats the plants, just digs a big hole.

    I just came over from the design thread and I've got some dumb questions. It's been years since I've designed and some of the jargon eludes me.

    The Masthead is the box that has the name of all the big wigs, right? And isn't the flag the name of the newspaper on the front? That doesn't include the teasers/skyboxes right?

    That's when you get Stan off his furry butt and make him earn his keep!

    Cutlery: Do they really need a whole set, wicked? One can probably get by with good quality chef's knife, a boning knife for meat and fish and a few butter knives. Maybe a serrated knife, too, if they cut a lot of bread.

    Flower pots: Mouse traps would make a fine deterrent.


    My question: Why does Hawai'i have an interstate system?

    On mouse traps: I don't want to hurt him. My cats would be traumatized.

    Everything they have is old and cheap. I wanna get them something quality, not cheap-ass stuff.

    If it's quality you want, I'd suggest Global knives. They're lightweight, fairly inexpensive and easy to sharpen. You might not be able to find those at Target, though.

    At least they're not Cutco.

    And trust me, I'll be shopping somewhere a little higher class.
  12. Wow, I ask a journalism board a journalism question and everyone jumps on the fucking squirrels and cutlery ... you guys watch too much tv. :p
