Who dares to drop pins in my forum? Not everyone is inoculated against tetanus, you know! And even those who are prefer not to be stuck whilst walking about or having a sit!

No Tsk, tsk, tsk... things are getting loose around here. We might need a good ol' fashioned cull to bring you posters in line! Wink

Well, at least this stopped the pins from dropping.

Which was sort of, you know, the point. Razz

Only if the needles are steel. Do they make needles out of any other metal? Hmm...I should test that. Would be a good way to clean up a spilled pin box.

True enough.


Is it me, or is the forum getting slower and slower to load?

They do...or at least pins and needles with low enough iron content to be nearly non-magnetic.
There may be a reason for it, if I remember I'll ask my wife...but I already know she mostly hates them.
Because the best 'pin cushions' by far [and the easiest clean up in case of accidents---which you picked up on right away] are magnets.
And her job is literally full of her and a dozen or so other people wielding pins and needles on a large scale.

Why are you counting pins, Vraith? The correct answer is always 1 bazillion minus the one you're going to step on in the middle of the night.

They're like Legos in that regard.

True story!


Though I'll never forget the time my son went to pick up what he thought was a Lego on the living room carpet and it turned out to be a lantern click beetle. And it flashed at him when he tried to pick it up! Razz

Calling it a palmetto bug does absolutely nothing to mitigate the fact that it is a [expletive deleted] cockroach.

They're all small fry compared to the ones that I saw when I lived in Australia for a while. Some of them were about twice the size of the ones we see here.
