Forums lack a like. For the record, that's a very nice sequence of posts :)

Pencil tip carving is a bit of a thing at the moment.

Weardale fluorite, possibly the best piece discovered, found in 1818.

I had a go at photographing this William De Morgan lustreware, then editing it so it looks like the object itself. It's not possible, but this is as close as I could get.

I dislike stereotypes for anything other than creating useful but ultimately demolishable memes. Multitasking women is up there with no pain worse than childbirth,as any chap who's been kicked in the nethers will testify in private with no disagreeable woman listening.


My text appears as the forum software formats it. Please direct any complaints to the Management.

I don't think the meme is about multitasking, it's about men being simple and women being complicated.

That's what I saw.

Men are much easier to turn on and off. Women are more like a series of multichannel oscillators that need to be harmonised.
