The blade sliced off the top of his 'ring' finger and badly damaged his little finger and forefinger.

Did he like that...? not a lot.

Good job Mav's OP had a link...
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Who is Paul Daniels? Does anyone else remember his famous outburst when labour looked as though it could win an election? He vowed to leave this country and never come back if they did get elected. Pity he did not keep his word.
