I figure it's me just talking to myself on this thread so why bother sticking to the rules..
I would beg to differ, sir.
Two (2) things bear remarking. If you don't follow your own rules, how can you expect others to follow them
? No censure implied/intended, but since you're not a member of the US government, you should abide by your own rulings
. As a vegan chef on a cooking show I enjoy says, "It is what it is."
The other thing - and it is legion - has to do with the gadgets presented to date. You've presented several Swiffer products having to do with floor maintenance. I have/had every product you mentioned. I suspect many of us do, but what's the point of duplication? If it has been presented once, there's no need - other than pride of ownership, maybe
- to present them again. Think I bewailed that fact once
On another occasion, I was about to present a butane soldering package I had just replaced - and found I had been preempted by another DC member. Only difference 'twixt his, as displayed, and mine is that mine has a hot knife
head. That head is particularly useful on a sailboat for severing lines/sheets/ropes, as most of 'em are nylon - in fact, it went overboard
, hence the replacement
Then there's applicability. I mess around in the kitchen off and on. But I doubt that pictures of four (4) different salt and pepper grinders would be of much interest to a group that seems primarily oriented toward all things computer. Mebbe a picture of a Slingbox? But it ain't workin' just yet, so there's nothing there, to speak of.
And don't forget popularity. As mentioned by tomos
, the viewing level is not too shabby
OK, I need another lager
... time to close this
