A very, very tiny schematic drawing most often found in WWI era submarines where space was at a premium. Each scissel contained complete information on electricals, hydraulics, and plumbing in the submarine on a two by two inch sheet of paper.
As they were so small, early submarines came with one sailor who's job was to do nothing but read the scissels. He was known as the Scisseler. (Pronounced sizzler, like the restaurant only not spelled the same.)

I'd like to take this opportunity while this round is revolving ever so slowly to recognize some of my favorite entries thus far, and to regurgitate some of my deepest journaled thoughts about life as a twelve-year-old from twenty-odd years ago.
