The sensitivity of the human eye is so keen that on a clear, moonless night, a person with 20/20 vision standing on a mountain can see a match being struck as far as 50 miles away. Much to their amazement, astronauts in orbit were able to see the wakes of ships.
Also: I got a mandoline last week. Orka (cheap end). I have already cut off one knuckle and the end of another finger. That sucker is dangerous and I am band-aid ridden. But I am such a corner-cutter that it is very, very VERY hard to make myself use the holder as soon as I really should. It’s the first kitchen accoutrement that I’ve ever been afraid of, unless you count the disposal. On a positive note, I’m pretty sure these qualify as cook’s scars. Yeah, baby, I’m bad. I have the bad, mad cooking skilz and the scars to prove it.

Mandolines are great. Martha always uses them, but yes very dangerous! Watch the tips too (and maybe the tits!)! LOL
I got one tip and one knuckle. The tits aren’t big enough to get in the way. (although at this rate, they may soon be loooong enough)
