    Rakes and brooms go a serene "saWisk, saWisk, saWisk" (and "OUCH!, dammit" when you find where your neighbor fell asleep after his lodge meeting in his bed of now-beleafed belches).

    Leaf blowers go YokoSINGING HeavyMETal HipHopYOWLING EssenceOfFRUSTRATION!

    Gimme Garcia filigreejoys in the summer, Chopin pensiveslips in the autumn, Bach flakelace in the winter, and wretch-bad leaf-rot in the spring over leaf blowers annnnnnnnny time!

    I learned several important things from my experience:

    1) Remove the batteries before combing your hair....the resultant battering my head took left me dazed and disoriented for several hours.

    2) Don't go out with it in your back pocket like you would a comb. This will very predictably attract unwanted attention from people you wouldn't normally want to talk to.

    I hope I have been of some help.

    I’ll push that one over the fence - social media. To the gallows with it! Especially Facebook. I have a FB account with NOTHING personal on it simply so I can occasionally see what’s going on with the band’s FB page that our bass player setup. I even used a fake last name and still had people I had just as soon forget trying to “friend” me. I don’t think so. What a nosey, annoying, invasive thing that is!
    Sigh....I feel better now.

    YESSSS!!! Dang right! Ever try to use one of those worthless pos contraptions? I guess the original gas cans were too easy to use. You definitely won 4pickupguy. Hands down! Discussion over. As you can tell, I had one once upon a time. I wound up removing the cap and using a funnel, then running over it with my truck, sans the balls, .... on purpose. It’s gone. Forever.

    The original gas can was fine. The one pictured is the NEW IMPROVED, MORBID SENSE OF HUMOR version. That’s what 4pickupguy was displaying. I cast my vote for him as the winner.

    Yeah and it also turned a $2.00 gas can into a $20.00 gas can because it was allegedly "environmentally friendly".

    Cell phones, I have one and use, but I hate the damn things. I've said for years that if I could time travel, I'd go back in history and find the ones that invented the cell phone and anything to do with it, and kill both parents before they were conceived.

    Did I actually ‘like’ a pair of fake gonads hanging off a pickup?

    Yep. Social media.

    They work for about 10% of folks, and the other 90% owners don't realize a rake or broom is quicker. I've got a neighbor that will spend hours and hours trying to blow heavy or damp leaves. I'll walk out and clear the same path in 15 minutes. Its a self defeating device, promising to save time or energy, but actually consumes more time, and more energy.

    Another example of a fake product are various kitchen choppers that aren't a basic knife. They look like they save time, but when you add in the time to assemble, clean, and disassemble, they use more time. Especially the ones where you have to cut up food with a knife to fit in the chopper..lol.

    I'm voting for the search engine. They are all fake now. They don't search "the internet" indiscriminately. They instead re-direct you to stuff they want you to buy. Instead of search engine, they should be called "marketing engines".
