But, If We Ban Leaf Blowers...

What happens when "uncle Boredom" stops by for a visit.

I ran across this video on The Daily What website. Given the leaf blower controversy plaguing Orinda, I had to chuckle as I watched.

The Daily What's comment was quite amusing, too...

Necessity may be the mother of invention, but this leaf-blower-powered office chair was clearly raised by its fun uncle Boredom.

I was trying to listen to the news this morning when I was disturbed by the sound of a blower, completely baffled why this noise was so loud I jumped up to investigate and I found someone using a blow dryer in the room next to me..I propose an all out ban on blow dryers, Extremely loud (deafening)blowing hair, dander dust all around houses through out our town... Anyone wanna back me?

No thanks. Inside your home you're on your own. It's the outside blowers, the ones affecting LOTS of people, that I'm more interested in curtailing.
