If you buy a tub of ice cream in the theatre during the interval you get a wooden thing which is a fork at one end and a flat spoon at the other. That must have a name, you'd think.

What about those little wooden things they keep on the counter in chippies, in case any royalty happen to drop in for a tanner's worth, open, with both and a gherkin? Or Professors of Hygiene on a profs' night out, possibly.

When I were a lad doctors used to use wooden tongue depressors. Haven't seen one of those in a while.

Hold on - isn't the deja vu topic somewhere else?

Actually you can still get them. They're normally £1.99 per hundred, but they've got a 3-for-2 at http://www.genmedical.com.

You can also get Snore Calm Chin-Up Strips there:

Quote:
These self adhesive strips work really well in preventing the mouth falling open. If during sleep you breathe through your mouth, you will probably snore. Chin-Up strips have been designed to help you breathe naturally through your nose. It is a comfortable external support that helps to keep your mouth closed at night. Chin-Up strips will also be beneficial to CPAP users to help prevent mouth leaks, dry mouth and sore throat.

Please, please somebody think of a way we can use these devices.

Got it!

The loudest snore on record was 93 decibels.

If you snored at 160 decibels, would you rupture your own eardrums?

Not if you had had the sense to get a set of nostril dilators, that's my point.

We now return this thread to normal programming, the discursion having been moved to the decibels thread in the research forum.

Helen reports that she has a set of stainless steel splorks at home, and that we can use them as she can't remember what she wanted them for herself.

A pooter is a useful gadget for picking up small insects and depositing them into a collecting chamber. It works like a vacuum cleaner. You simply suck through the rubber tubing while directing the shorter plastic tube over your target to draw them into the chamber.

We had one as a prop on the show once (question: What use is a coleopterist without his pooter?) and it was sort of fun for picking up little bits of Smarties, but that was a very rich show and the pooter got cut for lack of space. It's one of the bits that might make it into an outtakes show, I would think.
