Figure this is the best thread for it... snow blower. I live at the top of a pretty steep hill. Driveway is about 100 ft long, and I've got ~100 feet of sidewalk to care for as well. What should I look for in a good snowblower? Consumer Reports also has a buying guide here: https://www.consumerrepo...

Isn't that the same thing where people were getting seeds from China? I think it has something to do with generating fake positive reviews.

Star Wars discussion (SPOILERS INCLUDED)

It may please you to learn that in the German dubbed version a light sabre(er) is called Lichtschwert (lightsword) instead of Lichtsäbel (lightsabre(er)). Although sometimes it is called Laserschwert (lasersword) for some reason.

It does please me.
