I really love how happily nerdy he is. When my current can opener wears out, I might have to get a new one.

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

I have that exact opener he's demoing.

The reason it hasn't largely hasn't supplanted other openers, is that it can't open all cans, like the other openers can.

So I have one of the type that he first showed because my main opener can't open a couple cans.

But it bats about .900.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

No real choice when you need a one-handed can opener.

The Chef'n EZ Squeeze lasts about five years for $12

He's got a couple of interesting videos on heat pumps. The second one answered my question about why my heat pump seems much more comfortable in the winter now than in the past-a new thermostat did that.

I have used one like the Kuhn Rikon Safety opener since about 1998. It needs replacement because it won't reliably remove the lid since current cans use thinner metal.

Why doesn't someone make a "smooth edge" opener with a crank like the Swing-A-Way (my parents had one like this, very fast to open most cans)...

I prefer my hand held EZ-DUZ-IT. It's like a Swing-A-Way, only made better and in the U.S.

It never fails. The newer "safety" ones, in my experience, sometimes do.
