Spork Sunday

1a

The sporf is an unsolvable design problem. Think about it: It’s a tool with three jobs—it’s a fork, a spoon and a knife—but isn’t equipped to do any of them well. The utensil was pretty much born to fail. As if that isn’t enough, it’s also got a horrible name, so we will refer to it as a spork, which is a great name.

You can’t design a perfect sporf, er, spork, because there will always be compromises. But it is possible to design a better spork. A more usable spork. A less ugly spork. Map Project has done exactly that. The London studio recently unveiled the Tritensil, which is a fancy name for a spork with a knife on it. But it’s the prettiest damn spork in existence, and a testament to what creative design thinking can do.

    Hazy air from all the fires to the west.

    That “spork” is kind of pretty. And it does three things. Very creative.

      Those were the days, fast-moving, comprehensive, up-to-the-minute, plenty of input from all you have listed, trolls excepted.

      A fleeting moment in time never to repeat, but we move on.

      Creating DWF was born out of my need to ‘get stuff off my mind’ to verbally attempt to apply my solutions to issues, needless to say that went over like a fart in church. So with the sudden freeze-out at the Corn Blog, another gathering area was needed, hence DWF.

      It would be nice to see more DWF’rs, someday they will come, and I will be gone, meanwhile DWF will be spinning away in cyberspace for future generations to ponder, on a server somewhere.

    Pete’s party was very nice. His friends bought their kids, the pool was a HUGE hit especially because it was extremely humid. Dew point at least 73 percent. It’s 11:00 p.m. and I still don’t dare open the windows. Humid as heck out there. If it starts to feel stuffy in here, I’ll turn the A/C on for awhile.

    I made way too many hamburger patties. Lots for leftovers. I sent Pete’s home with 8 of them!

    I never went in the pool until long after everyone was gone, and I was out on my beer walk-about. Got the sweat off me then, then had another beer, lol.

    Bob sat outside for a couple hours to chat with people and he even had a beer.

    Pete’s friend Jon built the fire and did the cooking.

    Back to the grind tomorrow. Oh, wait. I don’t HAVE a grind anymore. YAY!!! I like not working, always have. Always have been the stay-at-home type.

    Yea, I’m up late, 101 in Rodney’s Garage today, I needed to get busy on the RV bed construction, I work the 7 to 11 shift, a lot cooler then. Next mount the sofa/bed base assembly onto the drawer guides(8) and ready it for a Futon mattress, will be a full size bed when down and a sofa when put up.
    Now I have my eye on a 65 Corvair convertible as the next project for Rodney’s Garage.
