    Reminds me of the way to get rid of body lice which I "learned" in the Army. Shave half your crotch and light the remaining hair on fire, then stab them with an ice pick when they come running out. ...

    I've learned to only carry cheap knives. I'll never loose a cheap knife, but will always loose an expensive one.
