Hey y'all! Hugs, kisses, yada yada yada...
Look, I rarely ever look at TV, but last night I packed it in early, and was looking at an episode of Law & Order SUV while I was in bed (it was okay). But, my clams really got steamed when a commercial came on which advertised "Foster Grant LightSpecs."
Man, did I EVER get a full-blown case of the reds! Those folks stolden my idea!
Some of y'all might remember that The Mrs. gave me the best gift ever at Christmas 2011, a "Twist-A-Light," which I have enjoyed immensely.
So, here I am last night lying in bed, watching the evil corporate bastids hawking something I came up with.
So, lets us just decide whether me or them has the better idea, okay?
First off, their knock-off of my idea has a set spot where the light will shine.
As you can see from this photo, my Twist-A-Light can spotlight two different things at once. Let's just say that I was deep in to reading a very interesting W-2, and some intruder busted in to my office. I would easily be able to twist one of the lights right straight in to his eyes...blind him...overpower him with my massive arms, shoulders, fists of steel, and still find out how much the gubmit is gonna screw me out of!
I can multi-task.
I mean...I can detach my Twist-A-Light from my reading glasses, and twist it up and around in to places that their sucky LightSpecs can not go. Which means that even in situations where I do not need reading glasses, my Twist-A-Light is still useful. Their knock-off, stolden idea of a product is limited in its usage.
Then besides all that, with my idea, I can swap out reading glasses as my vision deteriorates. Heck, I'm only using a 1.5 now. But the way things are going, I'll likely need a 2.0, or 2.5 pretty soon.
To further my argument, one must always consider financial concerns.
According to their computer page, the LightSpecs cost 25 bucks. Robbery!!! Full-faced holdup, if you ask me.
I purchase my reading glasses at Ellis Pottery, or The Dollar Tree for ONE AMERICAN DOLLAR (plus tax). According to The Amazon, you can get a Twist-A-Light for $11.46.
And, it's pink, too!
Way better price than those ugly specs they're selling at Friggin' Foster Grant (the idea stealers).
And, I took the time to read some customer reviews of the LightSpecs. Sure, everybody just LOVES how they work (I'm pretty sure they gave free pairs for people to rave about 'em).
But, a few honest souls have talked about the cost of maintenance.
This is a very important thing to us cheapskates.
It seems that the little battery for those Foster Grant knock-offs of my idea can run as much as 5 bucks! Really. 5 BUCKS FOR A FRIGGIN' BATTERY???
My trusty Twist-A-Light uses one AA (about $5 for a pack of 20 at The Dollar General).
So, it's obvious that I am a genius, and that Foster Grant sucks.
That is all.
(Man...I can't wait to look at The Sitemeter to see what The Gooble does with this ridiculous waste of bandwidth!)
