   I mentioned the dog poop bags because in my little Texas town they are in every park and beer joint (that allow dogs) and absolutely no one seems to know what they are there for, it seems.
Well, in areas where they banned plastic grocery bags, they might be handy. They should put them in San Francisco and elsewhere they have a poo problem and make the homeless bag it when they drop it...

My parents had a central vac in their house, I've always considered those extremely useless.

If you have ever approached an apartment complex in town in the dark, especially if you have vibram soles, you will be glad these things exist...

That ain't gonna happen, so...  :shrug:

We have one in the Castle we just bought and I concur.  Even more useless since we tore out all the carpeting on the first floor and replaced it with wood.  Dragging the under-powered hose from location to location is a bigger PIA than just using a regular vacuum cleaner, now that they've gotten so much lighter.
I will NOT comply.

It depends on who you ask.  I have a kid with asthma and his doctor told us the best thing we could do for him when we were building our house was to have wood floors and use a central vac.  Having said that, I admit they can be a pain to drag out and drag around and then drag back into the storage closet.

Maybe wall to wall carpeting is the most useless product then?

We tore ours out in the babies room and found hardwood under it.

He's correct about that.  At our Castle the vacuum unit is in the garage, and it vents into the garage instead of the house.  The newest vac Mrs. Liberty got has HEPA filters.

The one I saw had little doors in each room along the floor.  You'd sweep stuff to the door, then lift it and the vacuum would come on and suck up all the dog hair.  I want one.

Trigger locks.

Gun stores here are required to include a trigger lock with every gun you purchase.

That's what my safe is for.

Oh! The qualifier was "in use". Nevermind. I don't know anyone that actually uses one.
