    Or, your wife calls you for dinner and you say... I'll be there in a minute because you're reading about some knife figuring to spend more money. That minute turns into a half hour.... Oh well.

    I don't have the post totals you do, but I've definitely posted early in the AM.
    Just saw your 2:03 AM post in the GEC thread.

    :D Point taken. But remember, I'm around 8 hours ahead of you, being in Europe so it was around 10 a.m. ;) But I've been here in my small hours too :thumbsup:

    When you still visit the forum every day despite having standardised on a Vic Spartan as your EDC for a couple of years now and having sold off practically everything else.

    Yeah. I distinctly remember, in 1970 I really splurged & bought an Uncle Henry stockman for $16, and thought, "Holy cow! My wife's gonna kill me." :)

    Well, 16 dollars was a lot more back then than it is now.... in 1970-ish, we were buying new Case Sodbusters for $6.

    According to an inflation comparison...
    "In other words, $16 in 1970 is equivalent in purchasing power to about $106.85 in 2020"
    "In other words, $6 in 1970 is equivalent in purchasing power to about $40.07"

    I remember thinking a 110 was too much money so we always bought these "Sharp" brand lock backs from K-Mart. I wish I still had one.

    When your wife hands you an orange box and complains “there are more knives in the house than pens and don’t get the mess in the background when you post pictures of the new knife.”

    I did not know there was such a thing as knife collecting in the 1970s. I did have some as tools. I still have this one and use it. It does not weigh as much as it did.

    A snake will mostly only attack when frightened or being hassled.
    Also ...re venom...baby snakes are just as venomous as adults...the reason they are generally more "aggressive" and bitey is that they are likely prey for bigger predators so are naturally more feisty....as they get bigger they rise up the food chain and are calmer....when not in fear of their life....venom is produced much like saliva...
    "Best to leave the wild ones alone.....they dont want to be our friends"
    I think it was Timothy Treadwell (deceased) who said that...might have been the Aussie Tiger Shark petting girl (horribly scarred) .:thumbsup:
