I'm getting to like square head and torex better... Torex are amazing.
Torex are cool just a modern Robertson. I bought a special screw the other day and returned it I had nothing that fit it I read the tag when I got home it said "bit not included" well the damn thing is a "star drive" nothing I owned fit it I brought home new screws that were torex.

We're making up for omitting the T from Robertson (I left it out too) by adding an extra E to Torx. Cool. That's as good as leaving one L out of Phillips. Gotta protect our perfect record.

Well, I too left out that T, and had to use Google to find out how many Ls there are in Phillips. Look at my posts, and you'll see that just about every one has been edited after posting. That's because every one seems to have typos and misspellings when I look it over after posting. Zeesh, when I was young I could type.

In the three sentences above, I just now fixed five such errors. So don't claim the championship just yet. There are several challengers.

Then there's Philips Medical and Philips Arena.

It just depends on which Philips/Phillips you're talking about.
