Re: the Scissors !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I asked the seller about the length of these. I will post the answer as soon as I get it:

They seem to fail the proportion test, so no one get their hopes up.

The seller got back to me.

As I suspected, they are too short: 7.5 inches. The proportion test is very reliable.

Re: the Scissors !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Woooo hooooo!!!!!! Z won his scissors—and the infidel didn’t even show up for battle.

Kind of embarrassing to win a mint condition set of scissors—from a charity no less—for $7.99 with no competition from the yellow-bellied infidel.

Good job Zosolias of the all-seeing eye, OA!

Re: the Scissors !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


These are almost certainly the correct scissors, but the seller has left out the one detail we actually need. I messaged him about the overall length and will post the answer when I get it.

Re: the Scissors !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I asked the seller to confirm that he is selling the scissors and opener as well as the case; and to confirm the length.

He is selling all three and the scissors are 8.5 inches, as desired.

Some collector must have this set. First come, first serve. Don’t be bashful! Put down that marker bid this instant!

Quite welcome.

I will register your code in our registry located in The Motel Room.

OK, we have another big game on. One of our own will go up against the infidel to secure the scissors from its unholy grasp.

Whoa!!!

…and to think how long we went believing the scissors are unfindable. I suppose the frequency with which we turn them up now has to do with our improved understanding of the search criteria. They were probably always there; we just didn’t see them.
