Garments Edit

If there's no reference to using a needle for sewing in an episode, should we really include that definition? -- Renegade54 16:58, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

I was going off of McCoy's comment about sewing flesh like garments. I figured that suggesting the sewing of fabric was a logical extrapolation from that comment. -- Sulfur 22:37, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, after I reread that quote, I saw it really has references to both definitions. Sorry! -- Renegade54 00:14, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

No worries. It just proves my theory that you can't actually read. :) -- Sulfur 00:26, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

So who reads? I let the computer read it to me. I just need a new battery in my hearing aid is all... :P -- Renegade54 01:25, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Split suggestion Edit

Split into hypodermic needle and sewing needle. The former is used to inject or remove liquid and is hollow; the latter is used to attach objects while sewing. Different objects. --LauraCC (talk) 17:56, September 21, 2015 (UTC)

Aren't there a lot of references to just a "needle" to make this otherwise clear issue a lot more muddled? -- Capricorn (talk) 03:54, September 22, 2015 (UTC)

Well, the ones that mention thread or stitching are the sewing or suturing needles. The ones that give injections are hypodermics. --LauraCC (talk) 17:23, September 22, 2015 (UTC)

I think your explanation is clear but what Capricorn perhaps said is that many references said on screen/typed in one of the scripts are going to "needle". Personally I think both types can stay in one article and we can make sections for both in the article. The article itself isn't that long and if I remember correctly neither "hypodermic needle" nor "seeqing needle" are terms ever mentioned that way. Tom (talk) 18:24, September 22, 2015 (UTC)

Okay, so something like this:

  • Uses
    • Sewing/suturing

blah blah blah

    • Hypodermic

blah blah blah --LauraCC (talk) 18:30, September 22, 2015 (UTC)

Spend a few minutes to structure the article. There are only two references to a seewing needle so no need to split this in more articles, IMO. I've removed all the wikipedia links and added only the wikipedia link for "Needle", as the article's title is. Tom (talk) 09:08, September 29, 2015 (UTC)
