Sticky Dumbness: The Origin of the Name!


Found this in the old Sticky Dumbness files–the origin of the “Sticky Dumbness” name!

I was working on something in Photoshop a few years ago, and the lasso tool was malfunctioning terribly–rather than encircling an object I was trying to delete or move around, the lasso’s lines would  bow outward and stick to things. Out of frustration, I messaged Steve, and he explained a bit of trickery(and eventually just suggested rebooting) to eliminate “all the sticky dumbness”. *ping!* I instantly loved that phrase  and snagged it.
