I have had this in my init.el/.emacs for ever!  It's not mine and I can't
remember where it came from but it works

(defvar scissors "8<------"
  "string to insert in \\[scissors]")

(defun scissors ()
  "Insert a line of SCISSORS in the buffer"
  (or (bolp) (beginning-of-line 2))
  (while (<= (current-column) (- (or fill-column 70) (length scissors)))
    (insert scissors))

(bind-key "s-s" 'scissors)
