An artist – I believe in Germany – has made a spectacular city skyline out of fasteners. This clip is just a taste of it. Click on it to see the whole thing on flickr, and then maybe leave some nice comments there for her.
Wouldn’t it be better in this new age if we all stopped pricing things per hundred (per c) and per thousand (per M) and just price them per each so our computers don’t get confused? And do we still need per pound when scales and manufacturing methods are so accurate?
More and more of the world is appreciating the form of the fastener. Here are some screw lamps. The dimensions probably don’t meet ISO specs, but they are still cool.
Well, two screws, really. This article explains.
If you’re in the U.S. like me, chances are you ate a bit more than usual yesterday. Well, you are in luck. If you haven’t listened to the latest episode of Fully Threaded Radio, you can do it now and also aid in the digestion of yesterday’s Thanksgiving meal. Fully Threaded Radio includes digital equivalents of probiotics and intestinal microflora to ease you through your recovery from the big day*, allowing you to scarf down more leftovers.

I have only listened to the beginning of the new Fully Threaded Radio episode, but I already heard that the Fastener Word Association included the word Fallopian. Intriguing or what? Let’s check out the review episode from the big NIFSW Vegas Fastener Show 2012. [Yes, I know that's not the official name]
What the heck? Fifty episodes of Fully Threaded Radio? Five years ago who would have even imagined there would be such a thing? It just makes you wonder what the next five years have in store for us fastener freaks…
If you haven’t already (okay I am about a week behind), check out Episode 48 of Fully Threaded Radio, and hear about swimming mammals, and even some fastener stuff.
I came across a site called Inspiration Green, and it includes images of some fantastic sculpture made of fasteners. Here’s one of them. Check out the blog for more.
