Quote from: Wikipedia -  Swiss Army knife
Originating in Ibach, Switzerland, the Swiss Army knife was first produced in 1891 when the Karl Elsener company, which later
became Victorinox, won the contract to produce the Swiss Army's Modell 1890 knife from the previous German manufacturer.
...
The term "Swiss Army knife" has acquired usage as a figure of speech indicating extreme utility applicable to more or less any scenario at hand.

(Did I have a post between the Swiss Army knife one and the one before this that was deleted?)

For best results, you need to be familiar with the source material (and any additional
material incorporated) and have an appreciation for a certain kind of idiotic humor.

You know how historians study the hieroglyphics on the cave walls in Egypt and try to figure out what society was like then? What if they were made by some Randomex-style person, and we are getting a completely skewed view of what life was like? After all, who else draws random pictures on the walls of caves?

"Many older students reacted to [Budd Dwyer's suicide] by creating black comedy jokes. A study
of the incidence of the jokes showed that they were told only in areas where stations showed
uncensored footage of the press conference [citation: https://www.academia.edu/34409536]."

Twitter seems to have decided that what I want to read today is Reuters articles about Korean islands.

Based on your posting history, I would say that I am impressed by Twitter's algorithm.

"The monks there spend a month preparing sand mandalas for the festival of the
birthday of the Buddha, and then they spend a month contemplating them, and then
they brush them away. And I was there taking pictures of them with my camera."

If a YouTube video is not authorized to be played in your country, it will not show up for you in search results
or in its channel's own feed. You can only reach it via its own URL (maybe also if it's part of a playlist?).

The account only had 524 followers (at time of screenshot, so they could've had fewer when they first tweeted it).

Are you feeling okay, @Randomex? It seems to me that your posts the last day or two were really on point, enjoyable, and not nearly as random as we have come to expect from you. Was your account hacked?
