Ahhh, I've always called diagonal cutting pliers, "Diagonal Cutting Pliers", or side cutters.

There's a motorcycle club on the front range that proudly calls themselves Dikes on Bikes, or perhaps Dykes on Bikes. Have to be lesbian to join. Wonderful club that supports so many local things for the kiddo's.

I wasn't aware it was potentially offensive, but in this era of the left wanting everything to be politically correct, it wouldn't surprise me.

I just found out the other day, that apparently it's now considered "rude" to ask the parents of a kid on a leash if it was a rescue....

I need to get my happy ass on a river, and SOON..

Below is a photo that illustrates the problem that DRE towers have in association with large split rings. Notice the split ring on the oar lock to the right edge of the photo and that it may bind/impinge on the tower.

I think it was universally decided that threaded oarlocks are the way to go.

Just saying.
