    Little Giant? Isn`t that the ladder that collapsed on TV?

    I can`t help but feel that this guy is advertising...

    Sadly, I own or have used all of these. let me give you MY rundown:

    1. Magic Bullet - Gift from friend. Works all right, but it`s got a ridiculously tiny area of use, and judging from retail prices, certainly not worth the money.

    2. Shamwow - Bought myself. Regret every moment of it. Works about as well as a felt blanket.

    3. Hercules Hook - Bought myself. Work great. Love `em.

    4. Mighty Putty - Bought myself. Works great, but I don`t see the price equaling the quality of the thing. Unless you do a lot of home improvement or heavy-duty things like that, don`t get it.

    5. Pocket Fisherman - Gift. Novelty. Blah.

    6. Grabit - Borrowed from friend. Love it. Want one myself, but I don`t do enough handy work.

    7. OxiClean - Bought myself. It`s okay, but I prefer Tide.

    8. Bug Zapper - Gift from friend. Broke after three bugs.

    9. Little Giant - Borrowed from friend. Seemed to work fine, but dang heavy.

    10. Green Bags - Bought myself. They suck hard. Don`t ever purchase.

    Miracle blades III... I needed a set of kitchen knives and I got the bright idea to try those just for fun. I was slice a cooked hamburger patty in half just by carefully and effortlessly sliding the blade across.

    It`s amazing.

    Those green bags are amazing. They aren`t vacuum bags, though. So why are they compared to vacuum bags? Those things are just `Yes, no more limp-wristed fruit!` in a bag. Blocking out... special rays, I think.

    As for the Mighty Putty, really? It worked?

    The Sham-wow is great for cleaning up blood quickly when one is in a hurry. Wouldn`t use the Magic bullet to destroy evidence though, you have to cut it up into little tiny pieces,might as well stay with a chainsaw and a meat grinder once your in a pickle your in a peck.

    I am a sucker for infomercials. I sit there like "OMG thats so cool". Also, I swear Billy Mays could sell me anything maybe because he`s yelling at me how awesome the product is. Anywho, I`ve never bought any of these things, the only infomercial product I have is the PedEgg, which is decent I guess.

    very nice list. and ambercooper, i reccomend using an electric radial palm sander (the sanders with the circular sand-pads that spin around) instead of the ped egg, thats what my mom and sis use, they say it feels good AND it gets all the callused skin off, and does not hurt. and its very quick.

    im such a cynic but i always find something wrong with the informercial products...

    so i dont buy.
    the only infomercial thing i ever go (by i, i mean my gma for xmas lol) was one of those black board looking things where you use this stick to draw on it and then press it down and it simply wipes away.

    yea not so much. i was like 7 when i got it and you have to press really hard to draw and even harder to erase.

    I used to stay up and watch the infomercials for those super blender things, like you blend cheese and salsa and then heat it up and get chip dip.

    Those commercials made me so hungry. They`re tasty looking food...

    Oh man now I want nachos.

    I actually own the Magic Bullet blender. It doesn`t work nearly as well as they show in the commercials. I do use it for some things but as far as chopping goes... somewhat useless.

    I have one of those bug zappers at home. If you get one of the flies trapped on it, it starts emitting sparks and you can watch die a slow, horrible, painful death. Fun fun fun.

    And wow, Shamwow.

    I had been wondering whether or not those Hercules Hooks actually worked or not. I may have to actually break down & buy some now.

    I have a friend that nearly got killed on a little giant ladder. Those things are dangerous. He fell when it folded up and it broke 3 ribs, and cut his head wide open.. down to the skull.
