When clipping fingernails, the trajectory of the clipping is largely
unpredictable. Sure, if you have a handy sink or wastebasket that
you can put your hands near, you can be relatively safe from rogue
clippings, but there's always the possibility of a wild one shooting up
and out of sight, only
to be discovered much later, which is
disgusting. Also, what if you're traveling and have no access to
wastebasket/sink? Moreover, what if you have just woken up and
need to clip your fingernails but are not yet motivated to get out of
All you need is a small, collapsible, box with two holes for arms in
one side, made of transparent plastic. Insert your hands into the box
through the holes and clip your nails without fear of clippings
shooting off into the unknown. The box can be emptied at your
leisure and you never have to worry about finding bits of yourself on
your floor again.

||Henceforth precluding the tasty and serendipitous fingernail clipping snack. I begrudge this idea.
||Toe nails taste like asiago ... or at least *mine* do.

... toenail grater.
||Not a bad idea, [FT]. sometimes biting through those bastards hurts my teeth.
||What about a nail treatment that marinates and flavors?
||I have saved all my nail clippings over my life, now the surprise
contents of my safe deposit box, to be revealed only to my
grieving heirs upon my death.
||I could have used one of these. +
||Another idea would be binocuclippers that allow you to view
your toenails accurately and clip them without bending over.
