    So I'm going to get a good foundation for cooking, so I'm reading alot.  Someone here mentioned egullet forums.  Good stuff.  Just finished reading part of a training about knives - "...don't try to catch a falling knife,"  she wrote.

    So what do I do when I dropped a knife an hour later- i stick my foot out to break its fall.

    oh boy

     "...don't try to catch a falling knife."

    Applies to the stock market, too.

    Yeah, you probably shouldn't try to hacky the knife back into your hand.

    It really hurts when a knife lands point first on your foot /img/vbsmilies/smilies/blushing.gif
