Cutting toe nails: What do you do with the clippings?

I try to brush them in a pile and throw 'em in the trash but sometimes I'm apt to leave them where they fly. You??

Collect them, dump them down the toilet to be flushed later.

I clip mine at work so the cleaning crew can vacuum them up in the morning.

I'm building a TdF bike. It's a toenail fiber bike.

I think this thread is the true essence of Foo.


S&P notwithstanding.

Not to hijack this quintessential foo thread, but have we already discussed the +/- of public nail clipping here? (I am guessing this would normally mean fingers - on mass transit, in public restrooms, in the office, etc etc.)

Public clipping of any nail is a no go. I put them in the trash, or in a bottle nearby that is headed for the trash. Or, in the toilet.

Compost. Letting your clippings go loose or in the trash is apt to set you up for misfortu.e, should a sorcerer get ahold of them and use the to nefarious ends.

Save them and put them in your next batch of onion dip, the kind you make with sour cream and french onion soup mix. They stay crunchy, unlike the bits of onion in the soup mix.

Garden gnomes frequent compost heaps. Those guys are in cahoots with the sorcerers and necromancers. Great plan. If you want to be safe, and satisfied, go the onion dip route.

I do go outside the office and pace around in the courtyard and clip my nails sometimes. The squirrels don't seem to mind. The rest of the time, I clip them into the bathroom trash at home.

Stick them, furtively, into peoples' cigarettes or cigars. Don't be around when they smoke.
'suppose you could do it to joints, too.

I always clip my toe nails in public. If you do it right, you can get the little buggers to shoot into other people's mouths and eyes. Oh, what a fun time can be had.

Been well! Terribly busy with work - Seems the college is heading into new directions and now want to go for different awards and titles and they all involve my hacked up department and my numbers (they are not replacing ANYONE) - so I've been operating since 2010 without a full time boss and no co worker. I report to an Education professor who is supposed to give me 11 hours a week to my stuff. Awesome! And of course I still haz the Ming and Big Boy - and she is as spunky as ever - she'll be 5 this year!!!!! Here she is from last weekend as I was making jambalaya --- and she did manage to sneak over and snatch a shrimp tail --- and luckily I did NOT find any remnants on my rug when I got home! (she loves shrimp). You can see she is quite focused here

I go out on my wooden deck, let my feet hang off the edge, and the clippings go in the grass.
