So is this a "Sad but true" thread or just another LOL Picture thread?
It's supposed to be a "Sad But True"... I'm sure it'll be whatever people want to make of it.

at my place of work, we use a lotof 1/4-20 hardware.. and despite a lab with 9 guys in it, you can never find a 9/16" wrench, socket, driver, spanner, etc..
Same here, but most of our stuff uses 3/8. We do bigger and smaller, but the tools for the most common seem to be lost the most quickly, especially if the user doesn't purchase them.

The issue is, a lot of "Sad but True" situations are actually pretty funny. Much humor is drawn from the "sad but true" nature of the human condition and the chance and circumstances of everyday life. Witness Murphy's law and it's 100's of corollaries!

Briffault's Law (sad, but true for rocketry nerds): "The female, not the male, determines all the conditions of the animal family. Where the female can derive no benefit from association with the male, no such association takes place."

Feel like your allergies are killing you? Here's an image that explains why in one easy to understand graphic:

That is terrible... So often we look at images like that and, like you said, ignore it. So many people have forgotten what empathy is.

Perhaps we should put some money where our mouths are? Is there a charity you'd recommend for helping people in that situation? For me, I'd propose Mercy Corps (https://www.mercycorps.org/)... While not a hunger related agency, it's an international development, refugee, and relief agency.

I'm thinking that we could take up a collection and donate it to the agency/agencies that are selected.

The Organization that is ranked at the top of the list of money collected that goes to the cause verses money the organization keeps is Feed The Children
They deliver food across America and the whole world

"Sad but true". I'm tempted to post a picture of my foot, pre-surgery. Not a pretty sight. Probably get me kicked off the forum. I come to my senses and don't post. Here's what it looks like now (4 years later);
