Our Pizza cutter wheel self destructed. How do you cut a pizza with a knife?

Fold it in half = calzone.  No pizza cutter required!

The replacement for our previous cranky old grid (a Fabia estate) does not have the covered trough at the back of the parcel shelf which was ideal for the safe transport of balsa sheet, piano wire and (rolled up) plans.

In similar vein, current Fnord Mustangs do not have the little trough atop the centre of the dash to keep your bag-full-of-lead-shot TwatNav holder in place so you have to use double-sided tape to prevent Emily the TwatNav from cowering in the passenger footwell or your lap every time you negotiate a junction.

They should have cycle helmet holders, too.  That way if you decide to empirically prove that you can't go as fast as Slash even when equipped with four wheels and an engine drive round the track to record a GPX of the course because your bike's buried under assorted anbaric equipment that doesn't like being rained on, it won't go flying on the first tight corner.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

My local branch of Waitrose has stopped selling Patak Brinjal (aubergine) pickle and Maille Bearnaise sauce. We are all doomed I tell you.

The next book in the series I’m reading/listening too isn’t available in whispersync. But but the one after that is.

What do you use to remove dental floss that's stuck between your teeth?   :-\

An interdental brush.
These come in colour coded sizes, with PINK finest at 0.4mm, followed by orange and red.

You could also try more floss or dental tape.

The gap between teeth tends to ease somewhat after something gets jammed between the teeth so removal might be easier after a delay of 12-24 hours.

I've got fairly close set teeth & have never got on with dental floss or interdental brushes.  A Waterpik gets a lot of crap out from between the teeth.

You could probably use it to clean bike bits as well.....

TBH I can't see how a WaterPik could shift something that's JAMMED and made of strong fibres.

Suggest floss after a delay.

Eat sweets. Stop cleaning your teeth. Tooth will fall out or be removed.  Job's a good 'un.
Worked for me. :(

Somewhere in the annals of this vast body of literature there is a ride report including the account of What Happened to My Filling after a lunch consisting of a rack of pig ribs followed by the cocktail stick treatment. For the rest of the ride my tongue found its way unerringly to the jagged cavity that was left and, despite my generous offer, I couldn’t find any volunteers prepared to offer their tongues to the cause in order to give mine a rest.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

What do you think I was trying to remove with the floss?!!   ;D

Seriously, you have a better chance with the floss today.

Teeth move a tiny bit in response to pressure (that's how dental braces work) and the gap with stuck floss might have opened up fractionally.

Don't try my method - stuck floss, nothing worked - used v. thin feeler gauge. Managed to tear off the end so then had to put something a bit thicker below it to get it out - I chickened out of using an angle grinder. I used that thickness quite a bit! Should buy a new one, but I've managed for the 30-odd years since.

In order to update the maps, I have to register my car sat nav with the manufacturers website. This is done using a system ID.  It would help enormously if the screen font for that ID differentiated between "I" and "l".

Stop whinging, we don't have any takeaways at all that deliver to our postcode.

Mind you thats probably a good thing for my waistline.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.
