       How do these differ from a sandwich?
bristolz, Aug 06 2003
  

       And what do you use for a paperweight once you've eaten it?
Fred Sanford, Aug 06 2003
  

       We don't yet know if you can eat it.

       // You can eat them too! //   

       [bristolz] I think this might clear it up.
DeathNinja, Aug 06 2003
  

       Oops! I missed the "and you can eat them" part.

       School will start soon. Not soon enough, but still, soon.

       Can you not just use your lunchbox?
silverstormer, Aug 07 2003
  

       I thought this was to compress sandwiches to stop them being blown all over one's desk.

       this has to be the funniest thing I have read all week - well, one of them anyway! bris, how could you have missed //you can eat them too//? its not as if there is much of it really.

       Baked. The Greys cricket team have been serving up teas for the opposition that consist almost entirely of sandwiches made from paperweights for almost a hundred years now.

       //how could you have missed //you can eat them too//?//   

       I didn't read that far into the idea my elf.
Amos Kito, Aug 07 2003
  

       I guess it was my severe eyeball rolling that interfered with my being able to read that part, [po].
bristolz, Aug 07 2003
  

       hey, you look so pretty when you do that.
po, Aug 07 2003
  

       DrBob: I was thinking this sounds like a British Rail sarnie, but JesseOQ did specify that you can eat them.
DrCurry, Aug 07 2003
  

       Now I'm trying to work with you on this one, JesseeOQ. Let me see whether I got it right.   

       Substantial wind, papers all aflutter, strategically placed sandwich keeps the papers in place.   

       But: Hurricane, papers severely aflutter, strategically placed sandwich ain't worth squat.   

       Brainstorm: Tornado, papers being ripped to shreds, strategically placed sandwich held down by sixteen nails in a 4x4 pattern. Bingo, Better friggin' idea: Sandwich Stabilizing Kit for only $19.95, hammer included.

       [JesseOQ]: So, you want to use a sandwich as a paperweight? What's next, using an apple as a baseball?
Cedar Park, Aug 08 2003
  

       What we're all trying to say, [QTJess], is what happens if we finish our lunch, but still want a fan on? Or the window open? But our only paperweight has since been ingested?

       It all came to me while sitting at my computer desk. I realized that a sandwich provides a substantial amount of mass that can, if applied correctly, anchor ones papers down to the surface of a desk to prevent a gust of wind from blowing them away equally as well as any other paper affixing device. Upon further analysis I also noted that the sandwich had a significant nutritional value. My purpose here at the HalfBakery is to bring to light the fact that many everyday items can serve dual purposes and that many revolutionary new technologies may lie right under our noses in the form of a bologna sandwich.

       // "This is the best friggin' idea ever!" //   

       rave, waugsqueke's corollary states, "if you have to tell people your idea is good, it's not."

       He's got a point, you know. Only ten minutes ago I swatted a fly with a newspaper, then wiped my bum with it. The possibilities are endless, really.
lintkeeper2, Aug 10 2003
  

       That poor fly!
Amos Kito, Aug 10 2003
  

       Good thing it wasn't flypaper.
