    Strongest substances in my house

    1) Xacto knife-I fell back in my chair. before I fell all the way, I wedged the Xacto knife in my hand under the desk. It bent, but pulled me back up. :biggrin:

    2) The Jelly jar lid- Can't Get It open!!! :mad:

    3)My cat- after multiple times of throwing her, she is still walking :eek:

    4)My computer mouse-has survived multiple step-ons and falling on the floor :uhh:

    5)My stupid padlock-I'm trying to brak it open, no success :grumpy:

    Weakest substances in my house

    My 3 strongest:

    - Sony Ericsson K700i mobile phone. This beast has been thrown across a room only to land on a hard ceramic floor, without a scratch.

    - Marshall MG80 guitar amp. Dropped off a stage. It made a bit of a rattling noise (spring reverb) for a few seconds, and then just carried on.

    - Merrell Sport Sandals! 6 summers of sandy, salty sweaty abuse, and even the velcro is still sticky.

    My 3 weakest:

    - Homebase drill bits. Unless you only like drilling balsawood, don't even bother.

    - Anchor Spreadable butter tub. I swear the fat dissolves the plastic, the lid always cracks a week after opening.

    - My entire car. Citroen. Need I say more?

    - My daughters head. She's... well... crazy really (as a 17 month old normally is), and falls off all the things she climbs (ladders, chairs, counter... etc...)

    - Our bowls. I set one down and it broke on the counter (I had icecream in it). I got most of the icecream out and put it into another bowl and dug in with my spoon... and the second bowl broke.
