Where Can I Find Corkboard? Answered

Has anyone recently found a roll of corkboard suitable for building a bulletin board? I was unable to find any corkboard at Home Depot, and the bulletin boards available at office supply stores are too small and too expensive. This Instructable suggests a carpet supply store might have the right stuff:

Do you know of any other sources?

Careful, Adrian! Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle, and quick to anger.

. Well, it sounded vaguely familiar (I was raised in a Southern Baptist home) and Adrian is a Christian, so Google just verified my suspicions. . > I expect Tolkien adapted his from the same source ... . That wouldn't surprise me at all.

Yes, as nacho says. Ps. 2:12. Just search for it, Kelsey! :P

You all confused me! I thought you were pointing out a different version of my quote, i.e., something like "Do not meddle in the affairs of a wizard, for his anger flares up easily...". I tried multiple searches for "affairs of wizards" or even just "wizards" in the Old Testament, and got nothing. This turned into quite the Biblical Rick Roll :-)

Bwa-ha-ha-ha! Google Is Your Friend :-) I looked up "Bible concordance" andd found "Bibletab". There, I entered "wizard" and got three hits, all OT:

Wizard (3 Occurrences)

Leviticus 20:27 "'A man or a woman that is a medium, or is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones; their blood shall be upon them.'" (WEB KJV ASV WBS YLT RSV)

Deuteronomy 18:11 or a charmer, or a consulter with a familiar spirit, or a wizard, or a necromancer. (WEB KJV ASV WBS YLT RSV)

2 Chronicles 33:6 He also made his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom; and he practiced sorcery, and used enchantments, and practiced sorcery, and dealt with those who had familiar spirits, and with wizards: he worked much evil in the sight of Yahweh, to provoke him to anger. (Root in WEB KJV ASV WBS YLT RSV)

Using "wizards" (plural) instead shows up ten occurrence (9 unique):

Leviticus 19:31 "'Don't turn to those who are mediums, nor to the wizards. Don't seek them out, to be defiled by them. I am Yahweh your God. (WEB KJV ASV WBS YLT RSV)

Leviticus 20:6 "'The person that turns to those who are mediums, and to the wizards, to play the prostitute after them, I will even set my face against that person, and will cut him off from among his people. (WEB KJV ASV WBS YLT RSV)

Leviticus 20:27 And a man or woman -- when there is in them a familiar spirit, or who 'are' wizards -- are certainly put to death; with stones they stone them; their blood 'is' on them.' (YLT)

1 Samuel 28:3 Now Samuel was dead, and all Israel had lamented him, and buried him in Ramah, even in his own city. Saul had put away those who had familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land. (WEB KJV ASV WBS YLT RSV)

1 Samuel 28:9 The woman said to him, "Behold, you know what Saul has done, how he has cut off those who have familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land. Why then do you lay a snare for my life, to cause me to die?" (WEB KJV ASV WBS YLT RSV)

2 Kings 21:6 He made his son to pass through the fire, and practiced sorcery, and used enchantments, and dealt with those who had familiar spirits, and with wizards: he worked much evil in the sight of Yahweh, to provoke him to anger. (WEB KJV ASV WBS YLT RSV)

2 Kings 23:24 Moreover those who had familiar spirits, and the wizards, and the teraphim, and the idols, and all the abominations that were seen in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, did Josiah put away, that he might confirm the words of the law which were written in the book that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of Yahweh. (WEB KJV ASV WBS YLT RSV)

2 Chronicles 33:6 He also made his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom; and he practiced sorcery, and used enchantments, and practiced sorcery, and dealt with those who had familiar spirits, and with wizards: he worked much evil in the sight of Yahweh, to provoke him to anger. (WEB KJV ASV WBS RSV)

Isaiah 8:19 When they tell you, "Consult with those who have familiar spirits and with the wizards, who chirp and who mutter:" shouldn't a people consult with their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living? (WEB KJV ASV WBS YLT RSV)

Isaiah 19:3 The spirit of Egypt will fail in its midst. I will destroy its counsel. They will seek the idols, the charmers, those who have familiar spirits, and the wizards. (WEB KJV ASV WBS YLT RSV)

Interestingly, of all the citations I listed below, there are really only a couple of "unique" ones -- most simply define the term and then tell you to either kill or banish them. The Chronicles and Kings references both seem to be the same story (repetition, as either a mnemonic for oral tradition, or as a method of emphasis is awfully common in the Bible). At least Isaiah shows some originality :-)

Huh? I just looked up Psalm 2. According to "biblegateway.com", verse 12 is

Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Hmmm...clearly there are variant translations.

Gateway has tons of translations. I use NASB and Wescott (Greek) mostly, but for everyone elses' benefit, I try to know what the KJV and NIV have to say.

As it turns out (see above), I misunderstood Adrian's post. I thought she (and Nacho) were telling me that the "original" of Tolkien's aphorism came from Ps. 2:12. In fact, Adrian had taken just the "subtle and quick to anger" part and referred me to the Biblical antecedent.

I had no idea what you were quoting or where it might have come from-the phrasing just reminded me of the passage. :)

Okay, interesting. Your edition doesn't show up the word "wizard" anywhere (see my previous posting). The "Bibletab" Web site claims to have indexed twelve different translations; all of my hits showed up in exactly the same six.

I've normally found corkboard in DIY stores (Wickes, B&Q or Homebase in the UK) either with the wallpaper and tiles or with the carpet, and tiles. We've used it for wall covering and it comes in about 300x300x6 mm tiles, often with an adhesive backing. Covering the whole wall not only provides good soundproofing, but also a wall-sized bulletin board.

Sometimes it is hard to find products, especially if you want a local store ...it also shows us he doesn't consider himself way up there in the clouds while the rest of us are only peons. He is one of us ;-)

Don't count on that. Pretty soon I'll be asking the forums to find, order, and ensure delivery of whatever product suits my fancy. And then to arrange for a return when I decide I don't like it.

1. Take a deep breath. 2. Climb up on your desk. 3. Put your hands way up high. 4. Reach for the ceiling tile above you and gently dislodge. Don't go for the one has a shiny light behind it. 5. Go ask Ms. Rachel for a giant swatch of her coolest fabric. Just say you want to see it it matches something and need it for reference. 6. Wrap and fasten said fabric to liberated ceiling tile. Glue on or staple on back. 7. Tada! Fancy bulletin board. 8. Report to building maintenance that there is a draft possibly due to a missing ceiling tile and it should be replaced immediately.
