On that first pass I overshot every flake. I really tried not too, but just couldn't. That convexity is amazing for flaking (till I overshot it out and had to put it back in by more flaking).

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. cats look down on us but pigs treat us as equals.

Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't it get us out
