Default Do we sometimes take our tools too seriously?

Here is a spoof forum that gives some food for thought :

Yeah, I too have been considering moving towards hand tools and thought a good quality hammer and a couple boxes of sharp nails would be a good place to start. However, due to budget constraints, I can only purchase one of these items at this time. So, which should I purchase first, a hammer or a box of nails?

Well, any self-respecting hand tooler would sharpen his own nails, so get a good hammer and some cheap dull nails.

Isn't that what that bench grinder and a pair of Vise-grips is for?
