I've noticed that if any guy is sitting in a full-service stall when you enter to use the urinal, they almost always stop all, er, movements, and remain very quiet until they have the lavatory to themselves again.
If you think 'goto' is evil, try writing an Assembly program without JMP.
Why would any modern product use a standard (aka flat head) screw, which requires a standard (flat head) screw driver?
Standard screws are far more difficult to use in a modern era where we have power screw drivers which spin at high RPMs. If you've ever tried this you know that a standard (or slotted screw) will quickly get off balance with each rotation which really creates a challenge.
The very least that should be substituted would be the Phillips (+) type.
It's much more balanced. I can see using a allen type or Torx or whatever but I just can't understand why slotted would still be used.
Why are slotted screws still being produced? In my thinking they should outlaw them to save the sanity anyone who owns a toolbox. How many billions $$$ could be saved by such a change?
Anyone with a counterpoint on why slotted is still valid?
