ANOTHER UNCALLED FOR DISCLAIMER: I thoroughly want to befriend all their employees, because they are very kind and funny.

Uum, the entire point of scissors is that they don’t need to be sharp, since they _shear._ ^^ All you need is two really flat surfaces really close together with an edge on each of them. :)

Did you notice that you inverted the scissors' handedness? Your muse scissors were right-handed, the large ones are left-handed. Although I'm fairly sure that at that size, you're not going to be limited by that part of it...

Simone; I have seen you and several other makers (eg. Adam Savage) thwacking objects that you have placed on soft wobbly wooden tables, and it is such a waste of energy and time! It is precisely for this reason that blacksmiths use huge heavy anvils to hammer iron into submission: they do not flex or move, thus making each twack count.... Otherwise: älskar dina idéer... Håll Brian på mattan!

Sometimes you just gotta stop and cut the flowers... with giant scissors... Look, I wanted to make a clever joke but you already took them all. So this is all I had left...

dragging those things around, she looks like an anime protagonist that starts the series with zero ability but gets given the most OP weapon that they dont know how to controll yet, and by the end they kill a god and/or demon king

VPN adds are running on A LOT of youtube channel. Funny thing is: the real advantage of a VPN is never mentioned and most of the arguments are already covered by https websites.

If you made them sharp enough you could simply cut someone in half. (Well not literally, but almost haha)

I ran with a knife when I was 2... and tripped. I had a massive lump of scar tissue on my tongue for most of my childhood. ...Don’t run with knives.

They don’t say “don’t run with knives” because knives are in the kitchen and the kitchen is already dangerous

I think the reason why the running with scissors is more of a thing is with how they are used and how it's harder to accidentally cut yourself with them vs knifes and swords, so it's much easier to fall into the trap of thinking it's safe to run holding them any which way. where as with the other two the dangers are much more apparent. Plus like you said it's one of the first tools so it's also more likely that you'll see younger generally more careless kids using them and having a reason to run somewhere with them in hand. and it's to try to get it across to them. where as by the time your allowed to use knifes with out close supervision your already aware of the dangers running with them would pose.

You’re told not to run with scissors because you’re ALLOWED to have them at a kind of young age. Anything that young is clumsy enough to break a cinder block by tripping with it.

I really like the concept but when you mounted the scissors to the stairs I got the same feeling I got from the nail in a SIlent Place. Please put a plastic cover or something D:

Found your site today and subscribed. It’s interesting 😃 🤔 🧐 If you bend the blade parts inward slightly, you may be able to cut things with it! 😊 Glad you’re feeling better. Keep having fun with engineering challenges. (E.g., Elon might need help from innovative engineers to re-design the Starship, I’m thinking...) ciao n all the best -

I love your videos so much! Your videos have inspired me to keep going down the welding career path. I was thinking of not going down the welding path because I was scared of not finding a job because the men were better at welding. But seeing you welding gives me true hope that I can do this and I really thank you!
