So I bought a 3" engineer's square for tool set-up. Used it a couple of weeks ago. Needed it today, but damn if the box isn't empty. Must have set it down someplace (as usual) and can't find. Of course, it will turn up next week.
My personal theory is that scientists have developed invisibility/cloaking
technology, but they're not very good at aiming it yet. That's why you can
look in the same place 3 times and not see the thing you're looking for.

Glad it's not just me. I thought that's why you had 2 or 3 of every
thing. It started with me when I had everything in storage. It was
easier to buy another then find it. No were not talking table saws I
can always find it.
I've been doing that since I was very young. I put something down and have
to look for it a few minutes later. It usually hasn't gone anywhere, I
just can't find it.
It's something you don't grow out of...
There was a time in my life that I passed out small screwdrivers that
also had a small magnet on one end, screwdriver on the other to
I advised the customer that each screwdriver was also supplied with a
pair of invisible legs that allowed the screwdrivers to disappear.
This happened frequently.
Maybe your square also has a similar set of legs.
The Sun spit out three massive blasts in one day! It is sliding into a
different mode ???? Hope not as the extra heat from it we don't need.
Since the blasts were filled with massive amounts of all sorts of
particles - wonder if a space rift didn't open it up and suck in your
square and lots of other stuff.

When I was a kid, after not being able to find a tool my father often bought
hand tools such as tape measures, hammers, screw drivers, etc. 2 or more at
a time so that one could be found when needed... After major cleanups the
tool chests were over flowing with same... the missing and newly bought
combined! Me... after that experience it is a rarity that I don't put a tool
And there's a corollary to buying a new one. It states that as long as
you save the receipt so you can return the second one unused when you
find the first one ~ you'll never find the first one.
In other words, you have to ding, dent and scrape the second one
before you'll ever have a chance to find the first one.
