About 8 months ago, I asked this sub if there was a decent alternative to general-purpose scissors which didn't blunt without going through the rigmarole of sharpening every so often (and the other reservations I may have with that approach).
That led me to Milwaukee's Jobsite offset scissors which I bought off eBay. They're around £20 or $37 in cost, but I was attracted to the claim that through the use of high carbon steel, they're able to make the tool last 10x longer than ordinary stainless steel scissors resulting in noticeable durability on the cutting edge. After some research, this page seems to back that claim up. Only the edge is made from iron carbide, the rest is just normal (probably stainless) steel. As far as I'm aware, they're the only mass-market iron carbide coated scissors in the world.
Upon first use, I must admit, I was a bit disappointed with them. I intended for them to be a complete replacement of my old scissors, but closing and opening them required a bit of exertion. When cutting a lot of say, paper or cardboard, this can make usage a bit strenuous. I later found out however that you can adjust the tension bolt to make it as loose or tight as you want it to be. Perfect. Apparently, it doesn't further loosen (or tighten) over time due to the bolt's special design, and that has indeed been my experience.
I love the solid feel of these scissors, even down to the sound/feel it makes due to the micro serrated edge. During cutting of more sturdy material (cardboard, plastic food packaging etc.), I love the way it doesn't "give way" and fold up inside the scissors. With my old stainless steel scissors, it was a lot easier for that to happen, and it's frustrating. Everything feels tight and stable when I'm cutting more heavy duty stuff too (like hard plastic, fabric, bubble wrap, insulation etc.), where it cuts like a dream. Recently, I was cutting some fabric and I was able to glide the scissors along smoothly without even the usual open and closing of the handles. Kinda like a stanley/carpet knife, but with scissors instead.
Nothing lasts forever, and I did notice what appears to be some deterioration of the blade under a microscope... keep reading on reddit ➡
Me and other Spaniards got much hate during my Erasmus for cutting the pizza with scissors instead of a pizza cutter. Do you use scissors in your country too or are we the only weirdos?
I grew up in a family where we always cut our pizza with a nice pair of sharp scissors. Whenever I go to a friend's house and they use one of those roly bois I always feel like it's so much work to use it and it's barely sharp so you have to make one or two passes to cut through. Why not just use scissors? It's so much easier!
EDIT: Wow I did not expect this to blow up. I have loved all these comments! Especially the klingon references with the big rocking cutter. I have always pondered getting one of those...
Is there a way to turn my rock paper scissor code into a 1 liner code? I am a middle school student just started learning python not too long ago. Recently I just started learned how to code the Rock, Paper, Scissor game. Now is there a way to simplify my rock, paper scissor code? Or is it better to turn it into a one liner?
import random def num(): i = 0 answer=["rock","paper","scissor"] c = 0 u = 0 d = 0 while i<3: user=str(input("Enter rock, paper or scissor:")) ans=random.choice(answer) print("computer=",ans) if (user=="rock" and ans=="scissor") or (user=="paper" and ans=="rock") or (user=="scissor" and ans=="paper"): print("win") u=u+1 elif (answer=="rock" and user=="scissor") or (answer=="paper" and user=="rock") or (answer=="scissor" and user=="paper"): print("lose") c=c+1 else: print("draw") d=d+1 i=i+1 print("computer wins =",c,"user wins =",u,"draws =",d) num()
This is my rock, paper, scissor code that I made, if there is any idea that can simplify my code or turn it in to a one liner, please write the answer below.
Here is a picture of my friend holding scissors VASTLY INCORRECTLY.
She said “My elementary school teachers got SO frustrated with me because I refused to hold scissors the correct way [...] it’s uncomfortable man.”
EDIT (bc people are confused): the definitively correct way to hold scissors is thumb in the small hole and 2-3 in the big one because there’s more space.
I have yet to hear why the reverse is superior.
EDIT 2: if you’re wondering she’s ambidextrous but favors her right hand.
