I use a digital kitchen scale often. Not for what you think.

Craft purposes mostly that need that an accurate weight. I must be naive. Using a scale for the druggies never occurred to me. No wonder I have to sign for for Actifed.

I'd be insulted if someone gave me that look. Probably say something like get your head out of the gutter.

If you want to erase all doubt about your intentions when buying a scale, just ask the check-out clerk if he knows where you can get Sudafed in large quantities.

Back in those days anything made out of titanium were very pricey. My very first piece of titanium was a bike frame I purchased in 1990. Today they're almost as cheap as good steel.
I have a titanium campset but I also like my non-stick aluminum set which is just as light, or even lighter than Ti.
Dang, now you got me into camping mode....

Too cold outside! I'm looking at a pair of titanium knees in the near future.

As for Sudafed...I had my doctor write me a perscription...no more funny looks. They have to sell me enough to get through a month and it's always ready for me. It's the only thing that will decongest my ears so I don't get ear infections.

My newest scale has programming for 1900 foods, giving you the nutrition content, sodium, fiber, fat, etc. for the amount of food you put on it. It's really cool...I've been having fun with it.

Now, if you're inquiring about a scale that can read down to a tenth of a gram then you might be into something......lol...

Plus put your hair under your hat and give the clerk a dirty look.

Thanks for the belly laughs. You too Andy. Good combacks.

But it's safe to use it for its intended purpose. It's just that it is an ingredient in home made meth.

I wouldn't have thought about that use either, although it does make sense. I use my digital scale both for food and to weigh things like the grit for my rock tumbler.

Years ago my mom and I saw a little hand-held postage scale at my college's bookstore. My mom bought it, and we used it to figure out postage. It wasn't until just a couple years ago that I found out what a lot of other college students were using it for!
