Comments on: Stilettos making a comeback? http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/2011/04/08/stilettos-making-a-comeback/ News, but not the serious kind Fri, 16 Dec 2011 14:56:44 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: shigles http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/2011/04/08/stilettos-making-a-comeback/comment-page-1/#comment-418470 Wed, 14 Dec 2011 17:53:13 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/?p=60753#comment-418470 I am amazed at the stupidity of comments that I see here in relations to people with disabilities. Clearly, according to the author, individuals with one arm should just stay home and never plan on assisting anyone – EVER!

I cannot tell you the times I have used my knife in the assistance of another human being, not counting the half dozen seat belts I have cut to assist people out of their vehicle. (apparently the only emergency that disabled people can have is a sudden urge to whittle)

Knives are like guns, you never need one until you need one badly

The joke teller shows, by cupping one hand and sticking a finger on the other hand through his fly and into his cupped hand.

A friend of mine gave me one in case I ever needed “to make creme brulee in the field”.

Do people with one arm not have the option of having attachments fitted as prosthetics?

Also very handy for picking up trash on the sidewalk…

@Spin: swithcblade + blowtorch = shishkabob!

It’s perfect for slipping into your pocket/purse/fanny pack for those emergency blowtorch situations on the go. I’ll let you be one of my guinea pigs…er….test dummies….er….valued first time customers?

@Doc: I’d wager that if you used the blowtorch to superheat the flint, you might eventually catch nearby grass and branches on fire…but I’m only speculating here.

@inebreen: Brilliant! The molten peanut butter might even toast the bread a little…an added bonus!

Disclaimer: Do not try any of the things I ever post about at home. These tricks/stunts/bad ideas are only to be attempted by hillbilly Texan housewives that live in the boonies and are only at risk of burning down their doublewide trailers…i.e. “JustK”. If you choose to do anything that you’ve read on this blog, I am not to be held responsible in any way for your stupidity. Yadda yadda yadda….don’t be an idiot and then try to sue me.

Thanks ya’ll!

Is that another way of saying Institution? Does it matter if it is voluntary or involuntary commitment? I want to make sure I’m covered.

To protect myself legally, I must warn readers that this is not a recommended method of putting peanut butter on bread, and should only be attempted by professionals in an approved facility.
