From the kludger:
This is what you do when you cut your thumb, but have to write an exam in half an hour. Cut thumb, zip tie fix it, write exam, get it fixed in the hospital. In that order.
With a sudden lack of need for reference books, they went took any job available to them. Even mousepads.
Unless that's a guide to how to assemble your new coat hangers. Then you may be in trouble. ~NSHA
