A nifty little mechanical calculator from WWII. A really powerful tool for what it was. Only thing was, you actually had to know your mathematics in order to use it effectively…

    But will it grind coffee?

    Brevity Truta

    To that coffe grinder quip (it does, doesn’t it?) I considered a joke about making rough field pi from prime cuts but I like it for the way it looks, not the fact I understand maths, and the joke probably would fall flatter than this explanation.

    I need coffee >.>

    Oh and short balance?

    Is that like a flat white but with no milk and sugar cubed?

    Call me Brevity, or Brevs, too, cuz it’s Briefer, Nyoki =)

    As much as I would enjoy sugar cubed if I could, nothing could induce me to drink coffee (flat white or otherwise), which is strange because I absolutely love the smell of brewing coffee and will occasionally add it when I make chocolate frosting.
