They are wire cutters, and yes you can cut anything LESS than or wire with them. They work just fine on trimming hedges, but you have to clean them with something other than water afterward. They will rust.

FYI - They are the best for shaping the top of the Christmas tree.

wait, those dinky little wire cutters won't be good for pruning my juniper (thought better of saying "pruning my bush" here on da Cella, you pervs). I was thinking of bigger shears as was mentioned above.

But I'll try to find those wire cutters and see if they work. I didn't even think of them, duh.

Watch for more "dumb questions" coming your way!

This is by far the best option if you have cash to spare.

eta: oh I see you have them. I give up.

I can just about handle a screwdriver and a mallet, both of which are in my tool boxes, along with duct tape, WD-40, string, and glue.

and various other tools which have migrated into there through the dimensional walls-which I have no idea how to use.

If you have a hard surface, those will work, too.

Monster, you're lucky that you've got kitchen knives that cut almost everything and survived. Personally, I wouldn't do that to my knives. My mom uses the kitchen and whatever knives lying around to cut whatever duty she has at hand. She ruined a number of knives, including my Kershaw.

Okay, maybe this isn't a dumb question, but I feel like I should know the answer anyway.

I have an external hard drive on my Ubuntu machine that I want to make accessible via ftp but I don't want to compromise network security in so doing.

How do I share it's contents without emailing over 10,000 files?

That's the best you can do? You even fail at trolling -a few days late and several points short.

Hey, for the bonus, go ahead and list all foods......
