of paper are frequently the only

If done properly,
the ruler edge wouldn't be obtrusive, and

I imagine high school science students
would find this most useful. To keep
them on their toes and reduce
production costs, why not make it a
Golomb Ruler? Although, this doesn't
make measuring fractional distances very
(On that note, is there a difference
between a Golomb Ruler and a Perfect
A ruler with the minimal amount of marks such that any integer length in a range can be measured. [rgovostes, Jun 09 2006]
||this would be utilized for binder paper
right? i don't see it as a good thing on your
