Technology Maxim:

Gardening is the irresistible march of the machine versus the unstoppable advance of nature.

batmowerMurphy’s Constant:

The perceived usefulness of a powered gardening tool or mechanical gardening apparatus is inversely proportional to its actual claimed usefulness once bought and paid for.

Corollary: Manufacturer’s performance specifications should be multiplied by a factor of 0.5. Sales people’s claims for performance by a factor of 0.25.

Tungsten Tip:

A sharp tongue is the only edged tool that becomes sharper with use.
