The most dangerous knives are the dull ones!
I feel like there's an opening here to make a self-deprecating joke about my personality, but I'm too boring to come up with one.

A sharpened spoon is basically just an unusual curette knife, without the hole. See also, hide scraper. (Some of those actually look like spoons.)


My own wtf;

After getting my printer working, I have been undertaking the arduous task of disassembling an old (and worn out) set of medical scrubs, to convert them into a fabric pattern.  Wondering if there were other things I might consider trying to sew, I went looking for free fabric patterns, and to my horror, there appear to be no reliable archives of such things!

Sure, there's sites that have INDEXED all the "for sale" tissue paper sewing patterns that have graced store shelves for 60+ years, but no actual zip archives or PDFs of the contents. No free original pattern archives either.

Nothing but wall to wall, and endless, reaching hands seeking filthy lucre.  You would think there would be piracy, given the situation, but no-- No real offers.  It seems to be the perfect niche of "Nobody does that, so there is limited interest" meets "Oh, you are one of the few people interested but you lack the skills to make your own patterns arbitrarily? Weeeellll--- (waxes mustache)-- Come right this way, we'll fleece your wallet in no time!"

I was under the impression that fashion products could not themselves be copyrighted ( Baker v Selden, 101 U.S. 99, (1878) et. al), so I am now tempted to complete my reverse-engineering project, and then make the resulting pattern freely available as a PDF, simply because I find this situation abhorrent.

The most dangerous knives are the dull ones! I dunno what you were trying to force with a butter knife, but yeah, that's how you gouge your hands.

I was just trying to butter my toast

(What actually happened was that I broke the (plastic) butter knife apart by the grip and cut my finger on the sudden edge where I was applying pressure)

Weak or damaged dull knives are even more dangerous, turns out :P

New DF version.
I make a monklike dude with no weapon skills, just fighter, striker, kicker, observer, swimmer, armor skill.

It starts me with a copper spear.
WTF?

As far as I can tell, quoting is only broken in threads where Great Order frequented in.
because this is all Great Order's fault

No one questions whether it seriously is or not.

We all know that GO fapped the board over.

For some reason the top two quotes work, but the bottom one does not, even though they're in the same thread.

Boss reached new levels of douchebaggery today. Calls me in because of what happened on Tuesday. First tries changing the story to say that it happened last week(impossible, I was on vacation), and that I refused to do something else entirely. He pulls out my Official Job Description form, something he had to actually take the time to dig up juuust to make a point, since it was something I signed in 2015, long before he ever arrived. After flashing it briefly, he covers it out of sight, then starts rattling off my supposed job description, except he's almost certainly embellishing because he's using more words than could have actually fit on the form. Then, he starts accusing me of doing things like taking me aggression out on people on the sales floor, which is 100% a fabrication and I can easily get people to attest to that.

Then he forces me to sign a form stating that all of the above actually happened and I'll improve my conduct, which is then entered into my employee records. I'm pretty sure that making me to sign a false statement like that is a crime.

Finally got around to changing the lightbulb in my room. Thing's been out since like... march. Promptly turned it off after making sure it worked, but it still feels weird to have a working light in the room again.

Toady replied and said he'll run a full maintenance on the forum before he leaves for FDG-PAX.

You didn't seriously sign it, did you?

Unfortunately yes. If I had argued, I don't think I could have stopped it from becoming a very heated argument.
