Leaf Blower POV

Trees and leaves, man. Trees and leaves.

Good thing I picked up a new Hitachi two-stroke leaf blower from Woot.

Video one: Droid meets concrete

Video two: Leaves meet street

I’ll fully admit that video one wins.

Don’t call it a comeback. Or a re-branding.

+1 sort of new but mostly the same

You can’t really re-brand something that lacks, in large, a brand.

Let’s just say, I’m dropping the ninja. The robot stays, but knows his place. Carry on.

Man Lamp

My light needs were not being met in the lab. Garage, lab, whatever. Anyhow, I picked up a halogen work light at the hardware store, thinking that the base dimensions and output would make for a perfect movable lab light source.

This thing is a monster. Check this out.

Reference voltage:

base voltage
less than 1 point 21 gigawatts

Reference tempurature

+1 tepid

Voltage with 40W light bulb:

Voltage with Man-Lamp: (maxed out)


Wait for it…wait for it…wait for it…TEMP NEAR MAN-LAMP

what the fuck is this thing

Leaving a kind note in reply is good etiquette.

Custom Pong Table

I know of one thing more annoying than table tennis…table tennis players. Oddly aggressive, hollering, talking shit, and most bizarre…striking athletic stances? Nope. Not buying into it.

Pretty sure the best thing that has ever happened to ping pong tables was the invention of beer pong. That is, until right crapping now.

Take a (high end (citation needed)) table tennis table:


Knock that self righteous assface down to size with a little yellow, polka-dotted dress:


Much better. Enjoy your sport, chaps.
