Ultracrepidarian - One who displays traits of ultracrepidarianism; Of a critic, giving opinions on something beyond his or her knowledge.
Recumbentibus  - "A knockout punch, either verbal or physical."




Or if you will,  "The Know it all Knockout".

Brand new to the site but you Ladies 'n Gents, have been of great inspiration to me (been watching you all closely).
I thought I would join and give it a whirl first hand.

Been working on a little deterrent device for some time now, I believe it may be done. I'll leave that up to you fine folk.

No flashy lights or bells/whistles (though I do have those available), just hopefully a nice looking unit of a curious nature. The inner workings, as to how it subdues the subject are still unknown.
It has been noted, that the tip prob must indeed contact skin to deliver the potential message.
May also be used to keep unruly acquired specimens in line, as we all know, there nothing like a slightly agitated tetrapod on a heated escape attempt.




I did have the inclination to put several miss placed cogs on it, but resisted the compulsion eventually.

The device may come in use to a distinguished gentleman or lady, in the event of spontaneous notorious occupation by an unwanted Ultracrepidarian. These can be known to invade ones personal space, to a degree not wanted by any of a higher class.
Features both options of stun and kill, though stun is said to be advisable in most instances.


Thank you for your scrutiny, any critique will be appreciated and adequately noted.


Regards,

Samuel Pigott

Why thank you bassspine!
The details were indeed time consuming, wanted to do others but went with the less is more approach Smiley

I appreciate the well worn appearance of the metal sleeving on the body of the piece.  What perchance was the handle originally from?

When asked how long something will take, always tell them longer than what you think it will take.  That way if something goes wrong you have time to fix it and if everything goes smoothly then you look like a miracle worker.

That just screams "sonic screwdriver".  Assuming The Master carried one.  Grin

I've decided I particularly like the ambiguous switch setting, in stressful situations it could be fun...

"Actually, so did I"

Mr Phikset, the sleeve or handle? I believe the timber handle was someones attempt, to construct a cooking spoon. They never finished the bowl, just rough cut the spoons shape. I found the timber hidden in a cavity under my home.

DrArclight, the possibilities are endless. To be perfectly frank the true functions of the device are not known, possibly it does has screw driving/undriving options. Smiley I'll attempt to Zap a screw and see what happens.

Bassspine,  fear not! The recumbentibus was issued with a fail safe. If a deathly blow is dealt by mistake, a simple stun blow following shall revive the subjects heart beat.
