    are we talking like the glass "pokers" they showed on Real Sex 32?
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    Ummm...I'm thinking she means the WHOLE nail, quick and all - that would be very, very painful. Almost as painful as the hot pokers up the bum.

    Tex are you busy doing addtional "research", or are you going to enlighten us as to what it was you saw? I think Prudence may be interested...

    Hmm... yes - it is ripping all the fingernail off, quick and all. And the hot poker is in for a couple seconds - but would still do mucho damage. i voted for the poker, meself.

    Yeah, those. Quite nice... I would get one but I'm sure we'd have a Steve Martin incident with someone in my family pulling it out and using it as a book end or something...
