    So I was cooking dinner and watching the Twilight Zone marathon on Scifi. This is a show I have loved since I was about 10, and these days these silly marathons are just about the only times it comes on.

    Anyway, after the end credits rolled following a not-so-great episode, the screen went dark. I saw a familiar looking white star with a yellow border against a black background. Then a sonorous voice intoned "The Twililght Zone is brought to you by ... the United States Army."

    Against my will, I had to laugh.

    But it's made of an extinct hardwood and its metal bits are 27kt gold.
    Extensive handwork? Because, otherwise ...

    it's junta olive drab for you. Hardwearing--but oh, not so soft to the touch.

    That's two of us, Andrew. I used to think I was pretty darned sharp... Either I'm sharp as a bowling ball or these guys are just bizarre!

    For the sake of my fragile ego, I vote for the latter!

    Sometimes, just sometimes, I stir my tea with a fork. It brings out the variety in life.
