Why scissors?

I can't help wondering: why is the favicon for this website a pair of scissors? Is that for cutting dryer sheets? I'm not loosing sleep over this but I've been wondering for a while now.

- (Favicon is the tiny icon that some web browsers show next to the www.early-retirement.org url).

Oops, sorry about that. It is a link to an old post showing the prototype image used to develop the favicon image. The Latin "I am not what I once was" phrase was discarded.
