What are 101 uses of a machete-type blade?

These include machetes, cutachas, bolos, cutlash, espada anchas, kai-shan-dao, fan dao, laraw, da dao, dao, hinalug, pinalung, pinuti, itaks, dahon palay, sansibars, garabs, talibons, binagongs, ginuntings, tenegres, sandukos, barongs, klewangs, parangs, ladings, goloks, pedangs, mandau, sikins, balatos, clurit, arit, e-neps, dha, daab, darb, kukri, sirupati, Moplah knives, ayda-katti, aruvaals, semes, pangas, bill hooks, woodman's pals, fascine knives, falchions, seaxs, gross messers, big bowie knives, corn knives, etc...

if I missed any or spelled any wrong... forgive me :D

Could we come up with that many uses? They can range from survival to agriculture, from war to status... :shrug:
If ten people come up with ten unique uses, then we'll have 100!

Let me start with the easy ones...:lol:

1. Cutting away grasses
2. Harvesting fruit
3. Butchery of meat
4. Fighting people
5. Sacrifices
6. Chopping wood
7. Making shelters
8. Making wooden spears
9. Making wood shavings
10. Scaring people

1. Digging impliment
2. Making better digging impliments
3. Making traps & parts for traps (so you have an animal to butcher)
4. Shape/ fashion posts and a spit, so that you may roast any animal your trap catches/ snares/ skewers.
5. Chopping, hacking, boring into wood/ trees to get tasty creepy crawlies. (in case your trap doesn't work out)
6. Make a bed platform (to get yourself off the ground, especially in a jungle or swampy area)
7. Make wheel chocks so your vehicle/ truck is secure in it's location, so that you may work on it safely.
8. Shape/ fashion a wedge, to split larger pieces of wood.
9. Shape/ fashion a hammer/ pounding device to pound on your wedge.
10. Self defense against people and animals

There you go. There's my 10 contributions to what you can do with a big blade.

I figure "hacking down innocents" is different enough from self defense and fightin' to warrant its own slot. :shrug:
