I can understand why people use electric knives if they’ve never used a sharpener before. If you’re trying to cut meat with a butter knife, it might as well be an electric butter knife Grin

I, without sin, shall cast the first stone. That will be your sign to attack! But you shall not fight this unholy enemy with stones. No! RAZOR GLANDES!  Aim for the eyes! May the Lord have mercy, for we shall show none!“  -Jesus the Noodler

Whoever fears God stands above all manner of fear. He has become a stranger to all the fear of this world and placed it far from himself, and no manner of trembling comes near him. - Ephrem the Syrian

It’s a knife with a blade that moves up and down automatically so that you can cut by pulling the trigger.

I don't have a blender or a food processor. I can cut up my own food. Also, I( don't play video games, so no huge gaming system.

I'd be sad to not play video games anymore but good heavens do I not miss social media.

Unfortunately, in the opposite direction, my wife and I just broke down to get smartphones. Grumble. Harder to do things without it, everyone wants you to use an app for stupid crap. We had difficulties returning a uhaul last year because you were supposed to use an app.
