    I don't agree with the Segway being on that list. Just because they hype was way over the top doesn't mean it was a bad invention.

    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    plastic grocery bags are a scourge on society

    last week I had some potato chips with Olestra...I didn;t know they still used it, but they do and it still gives me violent....well....you know

    lost a night of sleep over a late night bowl of low fat potato chips

    but the worst invention is disposable anything

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    My wife, her sister & their best friend mixed olestra chips, grapes, beer & a jet ski on a rough lake.

    You do the math.

    Me, my bother-in-law and the best friends hubby sat on the pier and we laughed and we laughed.
