    Let's make a thing

    Here's one I made earlier with sticky backed plastic tape and a loo roll tube
    I do most of my own stunts because the stunt guys show me how.

    even if we do make a thing, what will this thing be used for? will it be eaten ? will it fly ? can it be ridden ?
    a thing is a wondrous thing, no =thing quite like it in the world

    i went decimal at half a teenth , down to .g's now ,
    ps , as previously stated you will never make a thing by adding half the thing required to make a thing, although i have met some dealers that seemed to prosper by that ethos ....

    was amused by it and thought it might work as a sort of counting thread. How wrong I was.

    The squirrels paired up, and tried to divide up their nuts, but there always seemed to be one left over.....

    3, 5, 7, 11.....

    Nut division proved a big problem for the squirrels, they quarreled over their nuts for 29 days until their leader King Basil, made a decree that all remaining nuts should be given to the king. The nut feud was settled and there was much rejoicing

    Except from self-employed squirrels, who had to pay extra on their Nut Insurance Contributions.
