As you move it, you get a FREE lawn mowing! I just paid my gardener $60.00 for 2 weeks service!!!---I'm SO BROKE, I'm going to sell Vermin.

Well, it's certainly different, but I'm too busy on another project.

What this country really needs is a drinking straw with a check valve at the bottom, so we don't have to suck air each time we take a sip.

Plow the garden and the lawn under, and keep the car!

This should solve the problem, Tom. Gravity and the siphon effect will do the job.

ahh the foam dome, only have to suck once to get the siphon going then no effort required. Has the added benefit of not wasting energy raising the can AND holding 2 of them for less refils. Beer wont get warm from your hand and the helmet is protection when you fall down!

Looks like a cool way to get around a town ordinance banning live poultry on your property. We have one here

Minerva's only selling for $4 on an auction site now ! Don't know what a Vermin looks like, but it must be pretty fancy !
