I have a couple more questions I just can't figure out.

Why does my locker at work close with the lock through the hole in the handle but to open the locker I have to use the combination to remove the lock before I can open the locker. How come it works one way but not both ways?

Also, how come I can carry a 25 lb bag of dog food or bird seed with a plastic handle stitched onto the top of the bag but to remove the handle and open the bag it tears open quite easily simply by pulling the thread from left to right and it opens with very little effort at all. Why doesn't the handle unthread from the bag while carrying the bag?

When close the locker door, the little dingus in the latch slips up and over the locking pin. Remove lock in order to LIFT it over the locking pin. If you turned the locker upside down, it would likely open when locked or not. Do not try this at home.

The stitch is called a chain stitch. Pull the wrong thread, it will not unzip. Pull of the handle just pulls the loops of thread tighter to each other.

Talking with older gent some years back, vet from the EARLY days of WW 2. In the rush to get the rapidly expanded Army clothed and armed, the govt had requisitioned sewing machines from various businesses that did not make clothes, supplied them to OTHER businesses that DID make clothes, to sew up uniforms. Yeah, you guessed it.

Some of the machines were industrial machines that only sewed lockstitch. Clothes looked great- until you pulled the loose thread, and your sleeve fell off.

They do. You only THINK what you're eating is the breast.

Why do men have nipples? Isn't like they have any use for them.
