    Sasquatch would be proud to own one!

    posted by spencer on 09/04/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It opens bottles. It's cheap. It looks like a big foot. It could come in handy as a weapon if you ever happen to encounter a bigfoot in the wilds of Washington State, or a skunk ape in the swamps of Louisiana.
    Cons:
    Don't all bottles twist off now, anyway? Regardless, as a bigfoot fan, I couldn't resist a dozen of these for the price. No c...

    Cool little gadget for the puffer in your party

    posted by spencer on 09/04/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    This is a cute little item and works just fine. I'm not a smoker, but decided to give them to a couple of friends who are trying to kick the habit. They loved being able to light up without actually smoking.
    Cons:
    The build is about what you would expect for the price, but they do look decent, and as giveaways, they're great.

    Peeee-ewwe! You asked for it!

    posted by spencer on 07/29/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Okay, I expected stink, but wooooof. My only advice is, be prepared! The reaction on the faces of people who get a whiff is priceless.
    Cons:
    I suspect you could detonate one in your pocket if you were clutzy. And if you do, you're going to have to deal with the sneer...

    I've been looking for something like this... yeah!

    posted by spencer on 07/29/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It is possible to have batteries drain if the poles happen to both make contact with metal... and these handy little cases protect against that. They also will keep things relatively dry... and they're cheap!
    Cons:
    These are a bit stiff, so you might have to do some fiddling to get them open and closed. I prefer them that way, since the la...

    Credit Card Size makes this a nifty item!

    posted by spencer on 07/29/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This is both smaller and sturdier than I expected. The smallness makes it easy to fit inside your wallet. The sturdiness means it should hold up while using it. Meanwhile, the price simply cannot be beat.
    Cons:
    There are some functions you'll never use, but even if you ONLY use the canopener, you've got a nifty little tool for your surv...

    Can't beat it for the price

    posted by spencer on 06/28/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Any relatively decent harmonica will cost you about ten U.S. dollars in the stores. This one is comparable to those in that price range, so it's a good deal. It plays pretty well, but keep in mind it's a low end harmonica.
    Cons:
    Takes a little more air pressure than expected to hit some of the high notes.

    Sniff away, the odor is gone!

    posted by spencer on 06/19/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    I handle a lot of pepper plants and get various odors and oils on my hands - and since soap, vinegar and a host of other things have failed to help clean up, I bought this with low expectations. But - it works. I have no idea how and I don't really care. ...
    Cons:
    None

    A great idea, needs some QC even if more costly

    posted by spencer on 06/19/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    This is a cute little key chain - sure to catch the eye of any Skywalker fan. The light is bright with a nice glowing quality to it.
    Cons:
    The end cap on mine was easily pried off by a two year old, which ruined the threads. Treat that part as delicate and you shou...

    Terrific price for these nifty little blades

    posted by spencer on 06/19/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    You can find these blades, usually bearing localized markings, at various tourist sites. For example, I've seen them at cruise ship stops in Alaska - where they run about $15 USD each. So the price here is incredble. I ordered five and all of them came i...
    Cons:
    None really, the five I ordered all open and close fine and look clean. (As another reviewer mentioned, they are a bit stiff i...

    Recommended despite some issues... cool gadget

    posted by spencer on 06/10/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This is a pretty little piece. You just give the pencil a turn, and she starts ticking down the minutes. The tick is nice and audible, like an old-fashioned alarm clock.
    Cons:
    Unfortunately, the one I received does not alarm (and I'm in the process of requesting a replacement). So, why am I recommendi...
