Yesterday the Mrs. was using one of those propane lighter things to light birthday candles. I got to thinking about all the resources that were wasted to build, fuel, package, ship, etc, just to replace something as dependable and simple as a match. What's your most worthless gadget?

A watch.

Even if I cared what time it was any closer than "about 10" there's probably 12 other timepieces around me at any given time, computer, vehicle, phone, PDA, wall clocks around the house, the list is endless.

Best of luck.

Hardwood, probably will miss the spirit of your question here but Washington. At same time the most costly.

This really makes you think. For our gas grill the lighter you think of as worthless is wonderful. For candles would agree with you.

I hate those stupid(!!) computer chip embedded keys and the whole concept that you must haul around a remote control to get in the dang car.

I want a key that will fit on the key ring without taking up the space of four other keys and in my pocket without cutting off the circulation.

And how about the old fashioned idea of putting an actual key/lock on the passenger door and the rear hatch? DUH?

I agree with Mark's list, and will add TPMS sensors that need to be reprogrammed by the dealer. It's way too costly and a hassle so I just tape over the stupid TPMS idiot light.

Other worthless gadgets? We've got a ton of unused ones in our kitchen drawers and cabinets.

Kenny (sound of small electric motor) I just heard a satellite turn toward you!

Seriously, (and off topic but specific to Kenny and the Goobermint) a friend of mine, a laid off automotive tool-and-die maker about a week and half a go sent a nonthreatening email to Obama--just blowing off steam and asking for help/relief in our region. About less than two days later (he sent me the copy) the New York Times called him--on his UNLISTED cell phone and asked him for an interview! He obliged and it was printed last Monday (I think). Not less than a day after the interview---BUT BEFORE the article went to print--he got another call, this time from the local Detroit FreePress asking for an in-person interview and photo op, which he gave. (Arrrrg! This boy don't learn.)

Coincidences? (sound of electric motor turning my way now) So Sad

Sure it's a coincidence. And the media is independent and totally detached from the administration too. So Sad

Ok, now that's one of the few I actually like and appreciate!

I think being able to get in the car, and have it start, and then turn off and re-lock when I walk away from it without having to even take the key out of my pocket is the first truly practical gadget!

Now if my house and shop door locks & alarms would do the same, I'd be a happy boy.

Best of luck.

They have it Murf, call them guard dogs. For real security try the guard gators. Understand they are very efficient.

Already have that. Problem is the little bugger won't stay home, if I go out the door he has to go with me.

Heaven forbid I try driving away in HIS truck without him.


Best of luck.
