Helpful Hints From joeeze: Binder Clip Tube Squeezer

1

Why pay more?

Who needs those stupid sardine-can-opener type dealies to squeeze out every last atom of toothpaste when a binder clip will do the trick just as well?

I like to invoke the patron saint of bookofjoe, Edwin H. Land, when it comes to figuring out the fastest/cheapest/laziest way: he said, "Solve the problem with what's in the room."

A wonderful way to spur creativity.

But I digress.

Lagniappe: if you somehow acquire a binder clip gratis, then hey, it's free — the way we like it.

Supersonic Parachute for NASA's Mars 2020 Rover is a GO

From ABC7 :

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

New video shows NASA breaking a world record and takes the space agency a step closer to a mission to Mars.

A 180-pound parachute deployed in just 0.4 seconds — twice the speed of sound — setting a new record.

It was the final test for the parachute, which will be used in the Mars 2020 mission.

The powerful parachute is needed for the heaviest payload yet to hit the surface of the red planet.
