    And I'll bet a couple of those curious cats lost their lives to some kind of sharpening stone right?

    I suppose the "smarter than the average bear" comment needs to be checked against "number of picnic baskets procured through stealth".
    Apologies to Andrew, I mistook the meaning within your comments. I was never a fan of watching Yogi Bear on tv. In Australia we don't have the type of bears you have in the USA.

    regards Stewie;

    Invest in a high-quality long 3/4 brad-point bit (mine is 9" IIRC) and that phobia will disappear :-)

    You must not get Yogi Bear cartoons down under

    IIRC they don't have any bears period. Koalas (and their fictitious "drop"-ish cousins) are marsupials, and don't count.

    Stewie, bears are famous for finding creative ways to steal food from humans, to the point where frustrated park rangers have theorized an intelligence overlap between the species. Andrew was making a joke that played off of that. It wasn't at your expense.

    I know I shouldn't do this but that won't stop me.

    It's not 'picknic' baskets.

    It's 'pick-a-nic' baskets.

    Sheesh.

    Oh Stewie, I am very sorry. My comments assumed that you were familiar with a popular cartoon here in the states where a bear spends all his time procuring picnic baskets with amusing antics. For certain no apologies required from you!

    It saddens me that I caused you any distress at all.

    My humblest apologies!

    This is all tongue in cheek right? Somebody please tell me we're not seriously apologizing over a cartoon from fifty years ago.
    This forum is confusing to say the least.

    I made a statement that played off that cartoon. Stewie was not familiar with the cartoon and without that context, it was possible to interpret as a personal offense.

    I have spent time working with internationals, so I have experienced many things that I assumed would be no offense, but in context of another is highly offensive; for example, showing the bottom of your feet or a "come here" motion that in a certain country is used to summon a prostitute.

    OK. I should have just stayed out of it but last night at one in the morning I guess I was feeling preachy.

    What Dave, you didn't know that Neanderthals were famous for their feathers? They tend to be ruffled rather easily.

    Oh please, one need only say 'SawStop' on the other side of the fence.
    Bumbling forward into the unknown.

    The prostitute thing was Japan and the foot is the middle east.
