    I hope they can keep that cute number for awhile. Any major flaw, and we'll be off to 10.1 or even 11.

    Otherwise, you know why we don't see these products, some of which were quite dangerous:

    WD-39
    Mad Dog 20/19
    6Up
    Ford Galaxy 499
    1999 Flushes
    Six Seas Salad Dressing
    Alberto V-04
    Formula 408
    Heinz 56 Sauce
    Grecian Formula 15
    Windows 9

    :p

    Yeah, I put Heinz 56 on a steak the other day, mistake my friend, total mistake. I was so upset at the flavor of the sauce which in my humble estimation was missing but one solitary ingredient that I angrily threw my plate on the floor. Thankfully I had some Formula 410 to clean it up (just released)

    SharpColorado --

    Just in the FYA Department (FYA=For Your Amusement), years ago, when I lived in San Diego, I knew the guy who was the CEO and one of the founders of the WD-40 company. It was the literal truth that it was their 40th formula that finally worked, and they decided to memorialize it by naming the product WD-40.

    Unlike Edison, they found only 39 ways that didn't work.

    Take care,
    Russ

    The WD-40 story (WD = water displacement) is actually a great story of perseverance and not giving up.
