    There’s a Dyson Airblade hand dryer in the bathroom at work. It’s ace at getting hands dry, what it’s ment to do.

    Why can’t we have more stuff like this?

    Other stuff:

    Landrover Defender (ducks for cover!…)
    The teng tools spanner set I have
    My shed – Stuff goes in, stays dry – job done
    Paper clips
    Brabantia bins
    Casio G-Shock watches

    My barbecue chimney starter.

    4 sheets of news paper stuffed in the bottom, coals in the top, light paper, return 20 minutes later, pour coals onto barbecue, cook.

    It leaves loads more beer drinking time than fire lighters ever did.

    The barbecue thing is indeed great but in 20the mins half your fuel is gone. 5-7 is all you need.

    There are loads of good things for this list.

    My merc sprinter. 310k miles and still totally dependable. Sony trinatron CRT tv (has to be 4×3- every other tv is too ugly to look at) My 65 year old Kolster Brandes speakers. Caterpillar work boots. Snickers workwear. Paramo smocks.

    Have to agree with dyson hand driers- nothing more disappointing than driers that don’t blow. Some complimentary ear defenders would be interesting to know what the decibel output of the dyson is.

    Actually, the new breed of stw hamster seems rather robust too.

    Especially if thou makest one from an old Amaretti biscuit tin instead of spunking the cash on a ready made one! 🙂

    Oh, and Radio 4. Does all I could ever need it to! (Did you know that there’s a blue plaque to Willy Rushton in Mornington Crescent tube station? How cool is that?)

    B&Q are flogging off all the BBQ stuff at the moment so now is a good time to get a coal starter.

    Mine are just perfect. Can’t imagine how I’ll replace them when/if they ever wear out!

    I don’t think we can allow rain on the list, sorry.

    It’s meant to water plants and feed springs. However it has a habit of buggering off for long periods of time causing lots of people to die, then coming back in other places far too much and causing more people to die. Then there’s all the lower grade stuff like stopping your washing getting dry, being annoying on holidays and trashing Mountain Mayhem courses.

    Dyson Airblade hand dryer

    Was unfortunate enough to use a normal type hand dryer with Dyson strength blower. They get your hands dry uber quick too… by blowing the water off your hands, straight on to your trowsers making it look like you’ve aimed badly, or had bad urinal splashback.

    Ewwww :puke:

    Sony trinatron CRT tv

    Mitubishi too. Mine from 1991 is still going strong. Unlike my Tosh and Philips, and Hyundai LCD
