  • Useless Product

    I just stumbled across the most useless appliance I've ever seen. Made for tailgators and other morons with more money than sense.

    Gas Powered Blenderfor $299.00.

    You could buy a really decent inverter and a brand new professional-quality blender for about half that...But then you would not get to look like an idiot while trying to start your two-stroke blender to make a couple of daquaris.

        Actually I know quite a few people who have and use them. Balloonists tend to tailgate after flights at ralleys. The gas blenders work great for margaritas. $300 is not a lot of money for someone who spends $30,000 or more (some $100,000+) on a toy (hot air balloon).

        And, they are pretty cool.

          As usual, no one gets IT! Cool factor my a$$. More like FOOL factor. Who wants the 2-cycle noise and fumes while working on your hangover? Besides, here you have gasoline in with the same same stuff you're going to be consuming adult beverages.

          OSC - none of my "friends" would have one either. I tend to choose my frineds from those that are the brighter bulbs in the box, and the sharper tools in the drawer <much like myself>.

                Well Phil, I'm guessing you have not yet figured out how a gasoline engine works. The engine fuel and the drink mix are not intermixed.

                You run a charcoal grill probably, you get far more fumes from that than from a mini gas engine, and your food is right in the fumes. Same for a propane grill.

                I use an electric pump to run the filtration system on my pool and spa, but I am not mixing electricity and water.

                If you don't want to drink, then don't. I don't and that's my personal choice. I believe it is wrong to disparage others from doing so. Adults get to make choices, then live with them.

                If our primary concern was safety, we (those of us who are trade professionals) would have chosen other lines of work. Workmens comp statistics show that the average construction worker is three times as likely as a cop or a fireman to be killed or disabled on the job. It's a choice we make. I'm sure there are many who think we are idiots for making that choice, but I really don't care what they think.

                Oh, one more thin Phil, though I don't know you, and you might be one of the sharper tools in the drawer, to use your own ego inflated illustration, from my personal experience, It seems that those who brag the most, carry the least.

                    As USUAL, those all around me miss my point! Oh well, I'm weary of tring to get the romper-room crowd to adjust their perverted point of view to align with my own <correct> POV.
