    55) Use the spydie hole to help map out the stars. (J's Knives-N-More)
    56) Hang your spyderco of choice - military for me - so that the hole cast a shadow on the ground - then wait an hour or two and use the shadow to find your direction - more explanation on shadow: by using the shadow - on a sunny day of course - you mark the initial point of the shadow on the ground, then wait a good amount of time and check on it and wherever the shadow is at that time, you mark it and I believe that North is in between the two shadows - south for you aussies. (J's Knives-N-More)
    57) Use that hole as a vegetable peeler - great for carrots. (mr-winkie01)
    58) Put an appropriate size rod through two of 'em and you got scissors. (mr-winkie01)
    59) Thread computer wires through the hole to help manage all your cords. (BoxANT & Josh K)
    60) Use the blade as an emergency piton, bugaboo type blade or even as a carefully placed chock or cam and clip a carabiner to the hole for protection or aid when climbing. (Reeek)
    61) Range Finder... hold the Spyder hole at arm's length and fill the hole with a 6 ft person and then measure off the distance...now you have a range finder..specific to hole size and your arm's length. Will work open or closed on most Spydies. ([email protected])
    62) Open 3-4 FS Enduras and run some cord through the holes... presto a flail! (Charlie Mike)
    63) Cherry pitter - just place the fruit over the hold and push a rod though the hole. (mr-winkie01)
    64) Push gound beef through the hole and you have a field sausage maker. (mr-winkie01)
    65) Pocket fishing rod holder. (J's Knives-N-More)
    66) Gives some people a creative outlet by removing 'em. (hwpaintballer)
    67) can be used as a bore sizer for paintballs, if it will fit through the hole on the para it may be to small to shoot, if it is the same size or barely bigger they will work, if it is a couple millimeters large than the hole then they will probably get stuck or burst in the barrel. (hwpaintballer)

    69) It can also be used for a "101 uses" list. (Haze)

    79) When you finally make it home from the Trojan war—ten years late and having shacked up with Circe on your way—impress your wife’s suitors. Stick a bunch of Spydercos upright in a row, with the holes carefully aligned. Then take your bow—which only you are strong enough to use—and shoot an arrow through all the holes.

    I was going to just say "thanks to the following" at the end, but when I saw how big the list was and went through it I realized it was pretty damn good, so I decided to put everyone up there and since we had a few repeated uses in the original thread (didn't want to leave anyone out) I decided to put both names :)

    HA! Good stuff, some of them are actually pretty useful.

    But the big question is, will the Spyderhole help me get more dates with hotties? That is the ultimate litmus-test for me!

    You have it the wrong way round.

    If your gal pals aren't impressed by your Spydie and its hole, dump them.
