Re: I'm on a roll. What is this?

I really can't wait for the poll results to start showing some meaningful data points. Notice I did not use the word 'datum' as that is singular but I did modify the word 'data' to 'data points' as this has much more charm then just 'data'.

I used 'data points' because there is not likely to be one coherent set of answers and I'd bet that most would agree that the sensible answer is that it is some new form of pastic pasta that can be eaten over and over once extracted from your holding tank and cleaned up a bit and re-used.

We all know that dogs and cats don't always get along so it might be nice to have a whistle you could blow to warn your cat that there is a dog stalking them, right? If you buy this line of thinking then this little gizmo could be the answer to your prayers.

The idea of an Iphone/Droid universal adapter has a certain appeal, no? Only problem with this gizmo is there are no wires so how could it work? Only the mind of Steve Jobs may know the answer to these questions.

To make your clothes clean, soft and well scrubbed these devices could be introduced to your washing machine. After they are introduced they could go out on a date together!

This little wheelie-dealy could be a wheel from one of the previous Mars rovers. After all, how many people really know how big those things were, right?

Somehow I doubt that this little marvel is any or all of the above but I know that Sailnut has a very diversified and (ahem) intelligent following so let's see what the poll shakes up in terms of meaningless data.
