I prefer needle-nose pliers and a nice bourbon for my nose hair treatment.

Not really - I have one of those $8.00 trimmers I got at Walgreen's, and it works great for the nose/ears.

/Yes, getting older sucks.
//Better than the alternative, however.

I know I need to trim my ears when I cannot tell the difference between white hair and my hearing aid extracting stems.

/Wahl makes a great tool

Johny McStabbs:

We should make people wear some sort of scarlet "G" next to their handle for grammar nazi-ing. Anyone with a scarlet "G" next to their name you can shun and ignore and make fun of. Same goes for anyone totally ruining the language, the people who turn "are you" into "R U" should wear a scarlet "B" for butchering.




I think anybody who uses 'prolly' for 'probably' should be "pantsed" in public.

Bah; I usually just gather my nosehairs up in a Scrunchie and shove 'em back up in my nostrils.

rulego66: Or a scarlet "R" for throwing in a Rotsky...

Yes, it was funny for about a week, like "I'm rick james biatch!" was. Scarlet G's, B's, and R's works out great. Thread jacking for a constructive purpose is fantastic.

I've been AVOIDING buying a nose-hair trimmer because I think they're all going to crap out on me. Right now I use really, really sharp scissors.... And I live in earthquake country, so this makes me nervous.

Plucking is out of the question.

Tips anyone??

kidsizedcoffin: Infomercial junk is generally poorly made crap that wouldn't sell in a regular store.

While some of that is true, you apparently didn't RTFA -- he said that most of what he got over the past year (which is what he does for the newspaper, is review infomercial stuff) actually did what they said it was going to do, just that he didn't have any need for that stuff to be done particularly.

Also, there is a chain of stores called the "AS SEEN ON TV STORE" or some such. They sell infomercial products. They are frequently found in upscale malls. Very strange.

That said, I work for a company that answers phone calls for all sorts of infomercials (as well as hundreds of other companies as well) and quite a bit of the stuff is utter crap. I do wish they gave free samples so I could try all this stuff out, thoguh. :D

should that be state of colorado jello mold?

That onion chopper he was going on about has been around for 20 years. Bought ours at the Texas State Fair when it had a German name. We call it the German Death Trap.

I have a mandolin which can slice a potatoes in about two seconds flat. The hard part is peeling them (no, I don't like the skins). Maybe I should take a look at those gloves. Sometimes we make a massive load of potatoes and I end up spending 15 minutes peeling and 2 minutes slicing.

Hey, I think I do alright for a public school taught southerner. At least I give the effort to make things I type 95% grammatically correct. Still, you've won the Scarlet G, congratulations.

I acutually have a Conair ear hair trimmer. Works great, and sadly, I have to use it on a regular basis.

//okay, use it only before a date
//but it works

Where's the love for Aalton Brown?

I've acquired a fair amount of kitchen stuff over time... and threw out a whole bunch this year. Why do I need two sets of mixing bowls? Why do I need lots of preparation knives? All I need are basics that are multipurpose. I'm really choosy about my actual gadgets. I do like and use my mandoline, it's well worth the space. I also spent $9 on an OXO vegetable peeler. It works really well on everything (it actually cuts), so it's worth it.

Extra junk or expensive junk is only worth it if you will actually use it often.

If you really want to try all the weird gadgets, just go to a secondhand store and pick it up for $1.

And you can think of the extra stuff in two ways. One, you can have lots of extra stuff so you don't run out of a clean tool or container. Two, if you have less crap, you have less crap in your cupboards, and you're forced to clean stuff quickly, which means your place stays cleaner. I've started to go with option 2.

A quick Google search will squash that thinking. Submittard, however, fails for submitting this poor excuse for a headline.

Wait... this is my headline? Yay!

Sharper Image has a great ear/hair nose trimmer with different attachments for different orifices. Plus, it has a little light on the end so you can see what you're doing. Worth every penny...or so I've heard.

When I'm sitting around picking my nose, if I can get a hold on a hair, it's too long, so I yank it out. No need for any fancy pants devices.

Dude. Vidalias are mild onions. You can chop them tear free with a plain old knife.

The best thing I've found a good year ago was this:

Philishave Multitrim, 4in1 Link to a online seller (but I bought mine locally) (new window)

Fantastic device for the beard and all other places needed.

I just saw that they have a 7in1 model (with more heads I gather)

I'm waiting for the microplane people to make a mandoline - their graters are fantastic.

Good Housekeeping magazine did a test on all the on tv gadgets, the worst one was the "hercules" hook for hanging stuff on walls, and one of the best was the vidalia chop wizard... I might have to get one.

Every time i refill my zippo i wind up singing out most of my nosehair lighting a cig.

I got a new beard trimmer a while ago that came with a nose/ear attachment. Finally tried it, goddamn that thing tickled.

You know, I've always assumed that all infomercial stuff is junk, and readily avoid it and its commercials, but the article sure got me interested in the Chop Wizard thing. One of the reasons I don't cook as much as I'd usually like to is because I hate chopping so much. Looks like they have a "pro" version for 2x the price...I might actually look into that one. I hate peeling too, but I don't peel everything...I usually chop everything though.
