Kinda cool, but...



Are you pissed off enough with the fans you have to wanna spend $300 for the cheapest model of this new thing? They range from $300 to $450.

And another question. Why didn't he call it The Breeze?

An "Air-Multiplier."

I like that twist!

Not unlike BEANS, which are "Fart-Amplitude-Enhancers"...

$300? That's an expensive blow-job!

Nah! I'll stick with my $10 Lakewood box fan that I got at the dime store.

I saw one of these pieces of junk on display in a local store. Lightweight plastic construction that felt like it's one three year old away from being a $300 pile of scrap on the floor. My wife has a fan in practically every room but she thinks this is stupid. Still, there's a sucker born every minute, especially suckers with money to burn that like to be "trendy".

I use a squirrel cage blower salvaged for free from a furnace when I'm woodworking in the garage. Cut the cord off an old fridge we tossed, wired it up and it moves air like crazy, even though it isn't "purty" like this thing.

Personally, I've never noticed the annoying buffeting with a regular fan. I think he's found an expensive way to solve a "problem" that most folks couldn't care a less about. Having said that, I love his vacuum cleaner. Got one about 4 years ago. Still goin' strong, and no loss of suction.

I personally think his vacuums-SUCK!(Sorry! I just couldn't hold it any longer!)

Indeed, a squirrel-cage blower IS "the-berries", if ya' wanna move some serious volume of air.

If ya' got it on the floor, ya' just got to watch your shoestrings & pant-cuffs, unless ya' put a hunk of chicken-wire across the "in-hole"...LOL!!!
