-====== Living and Dead Test: Marked Staples ====== 
-The idea of using a marked staple to cue a folded, stapled billet was contributed to //Pabular// (Vol. 1 No. 4, Dec. 1974, p. 39) by Bob Ostin. Dick Koornwinder has also done work on the idea, which may not published: He uses a steel staple among bronze ones, or cuts one leg slightly shorter with a nail clipper, or roughs the surface with a knife, which preparation isn't visible, but can be felt.
