A Rose By Any Other Name

99.95% of the world's spokeshaves have never and will never shave a spoke in their entire existence. Channel 4 television manages to show one actually being used to shave a wheel spoke, and the voiceover identifies it as... a rounding plane.

Don't mind me. I'll just be over here, expressing my pointless frustration at the never-ending failure of the media to get anything right by hitting my head against a wall in a repetitive but hopefully soothing motion for a week or two.

P.S. Hah! Bet you thought I'd missed this month, right?

P. P. S. If I never hear Guy Martin utter the word "graft" ever again it'll be too soon.

N.B. This has been a blog post to indicate the continuing failure of my demise. You're welcome.
