If you have to take your eyes of the 'enemy' to ascertain the right 'knob', you need to either stop using this as a sex guide, or get more practice.

Awesome link! I wish there were more books about this kind of thing (and don't even tell me about that bore Petroski). I read one a couple years ago that was about the history of engineering drawing, but I have no idea what the title was (not Petroski).

It's a little astounding that a Tupperware container could need 21 labeled arrows.

Also, a "telescoping" cart would be one that grew or shrank, presumably to fit the contents. Which would be awesome, but is not what the link is showing (despite what the Smithsonian or even the invetor says). What is being depicted here is "nesting" carts.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have some dust particles to catalog.

Have you seen the bra? :)

I don't begrudge the bra a single one of those arrows. It has one of the most important, revered jobs in the world.
