I did my placement matches for competitive and I rank at 1639, that’s silver right?
It was a nightmare, a bunch of white guys kept yelling at me, some guys couldn’t stop talking about their penises, and everyone had suggestions about what could help the team but no one bothered switching.
[image descriptions: three light brown craft-pine wooden bolts comprised of a wooden head fastened to a rifled thread and a wooden nut screwed on the thread opposite the bolt’s head. First image shows the bolts in a clear plastic package with a label in white and brown in English, Spanish and Japanese text. English text reads “Wood Bolt 12 mm x 50 mm 3 pcs”. Second image shows the bolts out of the packaging: one bolt has the nut screwed halfway down the thread, one bolt has the nut sitting underneath the thread (the two pieces separated) and one bolt shows the nut screwed to the top of the thread. Both photos sit on a red and black watermelon slice pillow.]
I found these in the stationery section at Daiso Highpoint: a pack of three wooden bolts, $2.80 AUD.
I’ve seen many plastic nuts and bolts in kids’ tool kits, and they look … extremely stimmy. Something you can screw back and forth? That has texture for touching and rolling? Sign me up. So I was pretty excited to see these - a small, quiet, pocketable stim toy that looks a little more adult than the child’s tool kit equivalent and lacks the weight inherent in the real thing.
The wood is a little splintery in places; the nuts need a good sanding. (If you look at the middle nut in the second picture, you can see the rough inside edges of the bolt.) But the nuts screw up and down the thread just fine, and considering that you get three of them for pocket change, I consider them a perfectly affordable, portable, quiet stim toy.
(If you need to stim in silence, these make only a very slight noise as you turn the nut or thread. It’s negligible, speaking as someone who hears all the slight noises. I recommend them without hesitation for anyone who’s anxious about the noise made by a Tangle or a good spinner, and I’m glad to have them for this reason.)
