    Yeah....right.....
    I think you might have found the right word at this stage.....

    Or else, this thread could have been generated in a direction with
    wild discussions if this piece was a part of a hot air balloon burner,
    engine for the space ferry or other even worse things.

    Which explains why he is attempting to sell an old family memento for $9,000?

    "Heck, folks, in sentimental value alone my dad's old mouthpiece is worth 25 million dollars..."

    Wow, so THAT's what I've been doing wrong all these years! Working on silly clarke studies when I could've just bought a bunch of mouthpieces.

    I've wasted so much time :D

    Morris!

    Have you cheated and looked into your Norwegian-English dictionary?

    skinflint is not a Norwegian word. It's a Oxford-English-stiff-upper-lip-word...
    and describes the bidder who made a disgracefully low offer on your father's mouthpiece.....ouch

    But it was a very good attempt:lol:

    I knew that when my dad smoked cigarettes 40 years ago, his cigarette lighter used a flint to make a spark to ignite the lighter fluid.

    And rifles of 200 years ago used flint to make a spark to ignite the gunpowder.

    So when I saw the term "skinflint", I thought, "That guy better stay away from the pumps at the gasoline station".

    On the other hand, he could just snap his fingers to light his cigarette.

    Je ne sais pas... ich verstehe nicht... ;-)

    Yeah, I have to be very careful when walking by dry twigs...you know, just to be safe! We have a good time for 4th of July, though.
