That's nothing; what about this? (Ask Paul for details).

I bet Peel and Castletown are basking in the sun today.

what's with bringing all the old crap back on TV?
Roseanne? Murphy Brpwn? Magnum PI?
All of which were good shows in their day, but ran their course
Turns out the 2018-2019 primetime broadcast TV season is going to look a lot like the last year of Ronald Reagan’s presidency thanks to reboots, recycling and football.

You need to go back to the ‘60s and ‘70s for the good stuff. Especially the theme music.

People were more focused in the 60s  and there was not so much choice. Before long all was in LTM.

This was the most iconic TV series of the 60s'. I watched all 17 episodes.

I liked "I Dream of Jeannie" and "Bewitched" but I don't want them to bring those back with an 86-year-old Barbara Eden wearing her harem outfit

They were good at the time, and it's nice to watch reruns once in a blue moon, but leave it alone.

And Mr. Ed?
Bamboo Harvester (who played Mister Ed) passed away in 1970.and is said to be buried at Snodgrass Farm in Oklahoma
Again, it was a great show at the time, and it's nice to watch reruns once in a blue moon, but leave it alone.

Steel. Easier to install with a gun and will hold wood together better. The only exception might be corrosive environments.

I'm serious. I'm actually giving up on gel nails after you warned me about the melanoma risk.

Ah, so this is about fashion rather than fasteners.

Fiberglass is an inhalation risk. The short non-biodegradable fibers scar the lungs if inhaled.

Acrylic as a material seems fairly non-toxic.

The other concern would be the adhesives and other nasty VOCs at the nail salon.

Have you considered all the advantages of biological nails?
