johansson trashcan

the sticky trashcan
  [vote for,

ripping off [BrauBeaton] and disposable rocks. Flat bottomed bin stays on its flat base. No magic, bad sience, pun,...... oh is this turning into a list...?

       because its magic?
the dog's breakfast, Aug 10 2007

       Because it has no content/s.
skinflaps, Aug 10 2007

       so a full trashcan is preferred?
the dog's breakfast, Aug 10 2007

       I think something has been lost in translation...
theleopard, Aug 10 2007

       Thanks [skinflaps] it's now a trashcan.
the dog's breakfast, Aug 10 2007

       Whatever I'm missing must be fantabulous, because this idea really seams like a wet towel.
evilpenguin, Aug 10 2007

       I think it's a reference to Johansson blocks. They are engineering measuring aids that are so frickin' flat that "the ultra-smooth surfaces in this manner permits molecular attraction to occur between the blocks, and forms a very strong bond . .."
baconbrain, Aug 10 2007

       "Jo blocks" ? Also known as gage blocks?   

       An "engineering measuring aid" ?   

       I want to come work where you work. No engineer I've ever met has so much as touched a gage block.   

       They're inspection tools in my world.   

       Thanks for explaining the reference, it went right by me.
normzone, Aug 10 2007

       I've never seen one either. I guess they are actually used as precise standards, which probably relates to inspection, yes.
baconbrain, Aug 10 2007

       I've spent many an hour using them to construct precise reference sets, then either confirming a part made good or making a vendor cry.
normzone, Aug 10 2007

       It'll be painted Scarlett, of course.
lostdog, Aug 10 2007

       gauge blocks are actually one of the few items with which one can clearly demonstrate the effect of Vanderwahl's forces.(the same force that keeps Geckos on walls)
jhomrighaus, Aug 11 2007

       [lostdog], great minds think alike.
theleopard, Aug 11 2007

       Now all you need is a light film of oil and a precision ground and lapped Johansson driveway to wring the trashcan to. [+]
