Water Displacement where you need it, when you need it

No, I'll grant you, you can't use it on a book. Or an author (at least not safely). But the idea that WD-40 now comes with its own built-in straw thingie, that you can't lose, is - I think you'll agree - the dawn of a new era. Now the WD-40 will go where you want it - and not just the first time - but repeatedly, even after you would normally have lost the stupid straw held on with its stupid elastic band. This feels huge. All I can say is, what brave new world is this that has such penetrating lubricants in it.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
