spork
"Why a spork, Robomarkov?"

Because it is the apotheosis of dubious utility. It is neither a fork nor a spoon yet has attributes of both and serves neither function well.

... plus it just has a silly sounding name.


Yet, in some way were are all like sporks; especially, those of us in the 30+ crowd.

How many obsolete skills do you possess?

I used to get to help do the laundry up in MN with the Mangle when I was a kid...

Mangle... I wish I had snagged one of them from my grandmother's estate when she passed away. With so much fabric flapping around my house these days it would be useful.

Likewise. My fathers parents had a washer with a mangle, and during the weeks I spent visiting them, I got constant feedback to keep my fingers from the rollers while I was squeezing the laundry before we took it outside to dry (I was too short to reach the clothes line).

I have lots of obsolete skills, and not all of them are SCAdian.
