I am bored with politics, refuse to pay attention to the news and am watching only True Crime TV shows and Turner Classic Movies these days. With the Democrats controlling the Senate and presidency, nothing good can possibly come out of Washington for at least another two years. So I thought I'd start the new year with something useful, like a short list of bad inventions.
(1) SILENT DISHWASHERS
Are people installing dishwashers next to their beds? I've checked my "Top 500 Daily Irritations" list and dishwasher noise is not on it.
What possible benefit derives from having a dishwasher that makes absolutely no noise? Was that gentle whooshing sound driving some homeowners bonkers? Is this a product designed by the same people who gave us the electric car, a vehicle so silent that the first sign of its approach is the sound of your pelvis breaking as the car hits you?
Not only are the virtues of a silent dishwasher elusive, but there's one big disadvantage: You can't tell if it's running. A dishwasher doesn't have to sound like the Concorde blasting off to provide some indication that the thing is working.

I would love to have a silent dishwasher. I have not yet sold enough books to have my kitchen so far away from my living room that I cannot hear mine and it is rather quiet. If you actually know of a dishwasher that is so quiet that you have to place your ear against the side to hear it, THAT would be worth telling us about. BTW - When I buy it I will just look at the run time clock to see when the wash cycle is done, thanks. You may want to pour through your owners manual on that one when you get done working on your phone volume.
As for the phone, I use the ring volume to turn off the ringer. I like my phone. I have no trouble turning off the ringer. I didn't use the manual to accomplish this task that is seemingly on the same level as string theory. If you don't like your phone go buy another one. Post your address and I'll donate to the relief effort.
The first place I used one of those high powered hand dryers was an airport. It was the same for automatic faucets and automatic towel dispensers. I am grateful to airports for implementing this due to the high volume of people and the likelihood of illness transmission. The same goes for rest stops on interstate highways. In my experience it is rare that something doesn't work and if there IS a malfunction I have figured out how to implement a difficult and arduous contingency procedure: I step to the side and use the one next to it. Now, a bit about how some faucets are turned up so high that they make a guy look like he wizzed all over himself may have been funny, but probably would not have worked for you. Oh well.
Ann: Leave the actual humor to Dave Barry. This is not for you. (PS - Eat Something!)
I’m not sure which is more ironic - that you two posted this at the exact same time, or that anyone bothered to post such claptrap at all...
Fat Boy made the top of list! My shite list. On second thought maybe he only made it to Top 3 or 4.
It's like being blindfolded and told you are being taken someplace to eat. When the blindfold is removed you realize you are in a Denny's. Then you find out it's the one in Ill that kicked out the cops for wearing their sidearms. To top it all off they serve you three grand slams...
And you didn't think there was a reason for spontaneous bulimia, did you?
I guess her love daddy Bill Maher is on vacation and she is bored.
“Bad Inventions......Ann Coulter”. Yes.
Me too. After following the 4 step hand cleaning instructions above the sink, the only other time I need to use my hands is to twist the fecal-laden door handle to get out.
Perhaps if Miss Coulter, Hannity, Limbaugh etc. would have pursued the Constitutional eligibility issue day one she would not have to write about dishwashers. Dishwashers?
Say, how did your Mitt Romney candidate push work out for ya?
Use your last paper towel to handle the door. No towels? Oh well
Sarcasm lost on you?
The rest of the column is phoned in. We could all use a sabbatical. Not all of us worked as hard to get Christie, and then Romney, the GOP nomination.
Too bad there's no retreat from tomorrow.
Seriously, what was that about.
I'm bored with the annoying skank
Anorexic political pundits who betray the people buying their books, and when repeatedly proved to be wrong, decide they really dont like politics after all.
No, I got it I was simply continuing the conversation.
long gone are the days when posetrs required that the rules be followed and pictures of Anne be posted in each thread. Still there are some here in drag attempting to reinvent Anne to the masses on FR, my guess is one of her supporters her is actually her.
Anyway, hope people just stop posting this tramps trash here, I mean after all she dated Bill Maher for God’s sake and for all we know she may still be dating him.
By her own admission, she has been engaged at least four times, shacked up with Andrew Stein, the NYC ultra-lib, and "dated" a Muzzie stalker (really). Mental problems.
