To cater to some vegan friends I was trying to whip up a mayonnaise without egg some years ago. I remembered a Spanish Aioli recipe that uses milk - because apparently Spanish restaurants are not allowed to use raw eggs - which turned out to work even better with soy milk. This is my favorite dip/spread now that can be varied by substituting garlic with other flavorings ( I tried mustard, chipotle in adobo, different green herbs...) and it takes only three minutes to make:
With an immersion blender blend 1 clove of garlic and 1tsp of salt in 1 cup milk/soy milk. Add 1-2tbsp. lemon juice or white vinegar. With the blender running,  ad a neutral vegetable oil in a thin stream until you reach the desired consistency. I usually stop a little bit short, because it firms up some more in the fridge.

I second some of the beforesaid, especially friction causing calluses and sometimes unconscious movements causing that friction. One question that I would ask, though: Did the wart disappear before or after you went shoeless? I am asking because plantar warts can be pushed into the skin to a point, where they can be completely overgrown by callus. So maybe your wart is still there, but "underground", leading to more friction in the surrounding skin. Regarding treatment, I would recommend urea cream, at least 10%, to soften the callus. Often, it rubs off on its own after that.

After some googling: Roman medicine spoons? The suspense is killing me! And what about Raven's picture, do we have a solution already? This is great fun.

Cosmetic spoons? Used for different powders, oils, and ointments. I have seen some from ancient Egypt that look similar in shape, but with different embellishments.

Peters picture could be some kind of specialty plane with changeable blades. The ones in the picture could be used for making grooves, maybe? Ravens tools could be used to weave belts? or make some kind of cordage?

Old thread, but I have to add geckos. They make nice pets and seem to love cockroaches.

I would test it and probably eat it, but not sell it. I can asses the risk for myself, which I think is very low, but I wouldn't make this decision for others.

With pickled vegetables, which have a reliably low pH, you have quite a margin for error. I would eat them, as long as the seal holds. Having said that, I would try to use them up fast and would surely not sell them.

The way I understand air pruning pots, just poking holes will not be enough. The pots have a special shape to lead the roots to those holes, otherwise they would just run in circles and bypass the openings. I would strongly discourage you to use styrofoam cups anyway. Too much ick.

Well that is an understatement!
