I had a thai pepper plant in an old pekoe tea tin and it was lovely.. until it started to rust and the paint bubbled. I would recommend re-using old plastic pots (all of mine came from garage sale "free" bins) and place them inside the tins.

I swear the directions said to put oil and water in a microwave safe measuring cup and then heat. It only needed to be warm, but as soon as the contents of the measuring cup was disturbed, the oil raised the temp of the water and the whole thing exploded in my face.

Then there was the one time I decided to make hard boiled eggs in our dorm (townhouse style) and forgot about them on the stove... If a fire alarm goes off, the whole building must be evacuated until the fire department arrives and clears everyone for re-entry. That was not a good day.

I purchased "green"er toilet paper recently and I am allergic to it. I believe it is the non-bleach that they use to whiten it, but they don't list what the non-bleach chemical is.

It would really depend on if it was only a touch screen tablet (like the iphone products) or if it was an active digitizer (i.e. wacom), and how it is priced comparable to other offerings that are already available.

This post is in very bad taste and I would not be surprised if you lost the interest of some advertisers because of it.

I bought a cheap plastic masher, and like most cheap plastic things it ended up in the garbage. I finally ended up splurging on a ricer and love it. What ever happened to the metal "W" type of masher?

A friend of mine uses an e-cigarette. They are so convenient for him to use, but he calculated he was initially using the equivalent nicotine of 4 packs of cigarettes (a day).

This looks great, but I was under the impression that mobile facilities like this need to be somewhat flexible (literally). If they were to move this, would the plaster crack?
