People need to learn to read by reading so a book isn't exactly that crazy a medium to read from :D. Plus a solar powered torch has a battery it charges up so they are fairly well designed. When you don't want them they charge, when you want to use them they are ready! An inflatable dart board allows you to have it on the back of a door or something; and the inflatable bit stops you damaging what's behind or making lots of noise. Glow in the dark sunglasses are a bit pointless unless you need to find them indoors where you have the curtains closed and then go out into the sunshine. I don't even know what you mean by "Screen door submarine".

Presumably you're referring to HMS Victory perched in the background on the left ?

I certainly agree with you Andrew about the A Bomb....but I believe it was inevitable anyway.

If it wasn't for the venetian blinds, it would be certainly be curtains for all of us.
And to make a Venetian blind, you need a stabbing motion with a sharp stick.

The cellphone!

Self important managers walk up and down the office blurting out crap to other managers. Why can't they sit at their desk and make the call?

Morons who get in your way walking slowly composing a text. Oblivious to all around them and stepping out into the road without looking.

Drivers who use them without paying attention to the road.

I don't want to hear other people's one-way conversations on the train!

No escape from work colleagues who don't appreciate you are having a day off, they would know this if they dialled your desk phone first.

Irritating tunes. It wasn't funny the first time so it won't be for the eigh- undreth time.

Who really needs a phone that downloads music and videos, connects to the internet, mows the lawn and receives celebrity gossip unsolicited?

not me matey!

Civilisation came a log way before these damned things were invented.


yes I do have one!

I resisted getting a mobile phone for as long as I could. I'm not a
big user and have them now only for emergencies. I hate them too.
What really pisses me off is when I give way to a girly in her BMW
X5 doing the school run and she drives pass me on the bloody phone
and doing her make up too, and I don't even get a thank you !!!...I
mean these people have the right to vote...sheeeesh !!

Why didn't you threw your cellPhone at her. That's a practical use, and you have some fun

Dont get me wrong, I hate cell phones as much as the rest of us here but if I didnt have mine I wouldnt be with my beautiful girlfriend, thats the first step in getting a girl, to get her number. I owe everything to my phone. Im sure everyone can understand this its true that its impossible to get a girl without calling her and who uses land lines anymore.

My conclusions, its not the phone thats the problem its the idiot who's on it.........
