Main Question or Discussion Point
Okay, not quite, but I figured that would get your attention. I've come across an interesting way to live a complete life without ever having to buy batteries. By some totally bizarre twist of marketing, a new Spinbrush electric toothbrush with batteries is cheaper than a pair of batteries by themselves. When they're drained to the point of it running too slowly, the bristles are about shot anyhow. Time for a new one. The batteries, meanwhile, are still more than adequate to operate my camera. The old camera batteries still have lots of juice for a flashlight, and when that gets too dim they go into one of my TV or VCR remotes. They all seem to reach their particular states of depletion at the same time, so the cycle continues. As a bonus, I get a new little motor and gear train from the old toothbrush to use for other stuff.
