SAE 52100 is a high carbon, chromium containing low alloy steel

The chefs and cooks on the Food Network often lament the lack of smell-o-vision. I concur.  But if I were to direct the leading scientist of our generation to invent a truly needed device, I would ask for a sarcasm font for the interwebz. Of course, had I such a command for my laptop, much of what I write here and in intra-company Emails would be in that font.

For instance when I type that "I am excited I get to go to Detroit this week", you would know the sentence is dripping in sarcasm if I had 'sarcasm font'.. Upon further thought, the fact the the destination city is Detroit may be the only indication required to know sarcasm is alive and active in the writing...

John Knowles wrote that sarcasm is the protest of the weak. I say it is a sharp utility knife, ready to cut.
