  • "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. "

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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'. "

  • "I like the 4 way slider switch for setting ALARM / TIME / 12/24 / BRIGHTNESS with the side-mounted + - buttons."

  • "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. "

  • "I've been delivering to people's homes recently in an older VW van - steering wheel on right, rear sliding door on left of van. This means every* delivery results in me walking half way around the van.  Of course I appreciate that having the rear sliding door on the pavement (sidewalk) side of the van makes tasks safer in many situations.  *Actually, the van has half height bulkhead, so sometimes I can remove the delivery item from the rear of the van from the cab. But this requires twisting in my seat whilst lifting a heavy item - not recommended. "

  • "Why the asymmetric doors? Well, study the van for other asymmetries: 1, steering wheel is on right, no front passenger seat on left, internal access on left between cab and cargo section.  Use case? Driver arrives at destination, gets up from seat and fetches parcel from rear of van, driver leaves vehicle on the nearside of the vehicle with parcel.  Advantages: driver doesn't have to exit vehicle on right and step into motor traffic. The left hand door slides open, causing minimal hazard to pedestrians and cyclists. The left-hand door can remain open when the van is parked without blocking the pavement ('sidewalk'). "

  • "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."
