  • "For those of us who don't like e on a farm, but do occasionally go camping:  Bucket is used in the day for fetching water for washing.  Lantern is used at night for illumination.  What is so hard to grasp here? Both buckets and lanterns have the same form - so why not use the same physical object for both tasks? 5L of water is 5 KG... Many people wouldn't want to carry much more that that on a walk from the campsite tap to their tent. "

  • "Can you tell us why the previous tool was poorly thought of? In what areas did it fail, and how do you think the designers of the new version may have improved it?"

  • "The connector looks to be made of powder-coated steel. From the video it looks to be fit for purpose. Mud might jam the mechanism, possibly, but unlikely."

  • "Maybe just stow the barriers away so that they can be used for the next pandemic?  Strewth, if this lecturer can't do any forward environmental planning, what hope the students? "

  • "It depends if the contents of the drawers have an inherent order of their own - shirts of different collar sizes and arm lengths - or if they will be used for miscellaneous items. Ordered items are, well, ordered, but miscellaneous items can hook into our memory more easily.  The speed at which the owner wishes to access an item is also a variable - a collector of watches or prints may not be in a hurry, a user of tools might be.  Whichever way, I would actually *test* the severity of the problem before devising any 'solution'. "

  • "Remember: After their release from captivity, several of the Buiruit hostages including Terry Waite, talked of how the sound of unwinding tape triggered unpleasant memories for them. The reason was that duck tape had been used to secure them every time they were moved from place to place. "

  • "How many damned times does Rain Noe need to be told:  Spell out the story in words and pictures without video!  So many Core77 articles are indecipherable without the faff of watching the video, and there is no way of telling which articles are so affluctied from the Core77 home screen.  Please, sort it out. "

  • "What, no Opinel? Arguably more elegantly designed than the above knives:https://www.opinel.com/en/multifunction/n8-mushroom-knife"

  • "The body panels on this van are made of a polymer or composite material, not metal. Genuine question: are composite panels necessarily much more expensive to make (or replace, or repair) than a traditional black plastic bumper (at this size of production run)?"

  • "The driver-side (right hand side) door is conventionally hinged - you can see the hinges in the photos.  The groove behind the driver-side door is so that parts (such as the roof and side panels) can be reused in a Left-hand drive version of the van. "

  • "It isn't supposed to sit on a bookshelf - that description was Core77's, not Bang and Olufsen's. There is a common convention of referring to smaller hi-fi speakers as bookshelf speakers - but they are not designed to be used on a bookshelf. The constrained space of of a bookshelf will severely affected the sound quality of most loud speakers. You'll note that B&O's photographs only show the speaker on open-sided shelves, or on wide ledges."
