Are you referring to the greatest enahncement to the impressing
pointy stick - the eraser? Did you know that it was originally
developed as a safety device to protect the Pointy Stick user from
accidental punctures? Some fool who didn't read and understand
ALL the Pointy Stick safety instructions tried to use his pointy
stick to scrape off some blood stains from a piece he was working
on and found that the rubber "point guard" worked far better than
the scraping off function of the Pointy Stick.
I'm not certain about them actually being generated by trees but
most of the Pointy Stick stock I've found were within or very
near the drip line of a tree. I suspect there is some relationship
there but won't have time to investigate 'til I get the initial draft
of this compendium completed.
Sharp Sticks predated Pointy Sticks. Sharp Sticks are edge tools
rather than point tools. A Sharp Stick only requires creating
two (2) intersecting planes - the end(s) can be blunt and not
suitable for poking. The Pointy Stick on the other hand is 33%
more complex in that it requires creating a minimum of THREE
(3) planes which all intersect at a single point - "the point"
of the Pointy Stick.
I guess this distincion should be included in TSPSCP report.
My dontist (that's an EXPENSIVE specialist in the dental professions)
assures me that between the titanium pins and the chromium cobalt
platinum crowns these puppies will hold an edge for at least
another 35-40 years, short of chewing on diamonds (or corn nuts)
Re: painting and Pointy Sticks, only a barbarian would consider
putting paint on a real Pointy Stick - gnawed paintbrush
sticks maybe but not on a real Pointy Stick
It's been a hectic last 6 days and when I skip my naps sleep
deprivation starts having its affects/effects (?) Does that
explain the origin of this thread?
