"That truth should be silent I had almost forgot"--Enobarbus in ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA, back in Rome after having been too long in Egypt.---------

Then there is the carpenter from the best appliance store in SLO
who used a power screwdriver to put a screw partly in, and an angle, in a support for a new oven-microwave combination. He never heard of countersinking.
The screw stuck up and extra trips were required . . . .
He also measured a nice piece of oak and cut it wrong.
In 2002 when I added a third of the cabinet space in the kitchen I pre-drilled holes for every screw.
