Quiet, lightweight, less indoor air pollution, only have to empty the dirt container every 6 months.

I still have nightmares about the rattling sound Lego bricks make when they are sucked up the vacuum's pipe :tear:

If you like that sort of stuff bigclivedotcom and EEVBlog are also pretty good.

Easy enough to pick out something through the clear dirt bucket. Not that it would be worth it for a lego.

Worse thing i’ve noticed so far is if someone shuts it off instantly instead of letting shit flow all the way to the unit that shit will build up in front of the inlet closest to the main unit. It’s kinda in a dumb spot though (low point right before main unit) and more from bad design in the pipe run. Also it’s usually just heavier stuff like cereal swept up from the kitchen vac pan.

I usually just stick the vacuum cleaner directly into the Lego box...

Vac3World. :rolleyes:


I did another 186 mile ride Sunday. We road out west and then north through farm land, cow pastures and swamps where there were almost no traffic lights. Then we headed back east and road south down the Atlantic coast. The weather couldn't have been more perfect. Temps were in the 70's and the sky's were blue.

Yes, it was starting to look like a vacuum forum :paranoid:
... and your bike rides, I'd love to do them and there :) like you have done recently. Perfect weather and no traffic would be the bonus.

Hey, and my good looks :)

Re: What is new in your little world?
I have relatives, my Aunt & Uncle staying a few days. They are from the UK <-

Oh, and the nose is a little tender, thanks for asking :D


My Aunt & Uncle from Dover in the UK start their return trip/flights Thursday. They have been here a month. I intend to 'see them off' at the airport on Thursday and an early flight. NB: Everyone deserves to have someone at the terminal to see them arrive/depart IMO and I was there for their arrival so I plan to make the other.

Oh, and the nose has healed well. A good looking Nurse (they all are aren't they?) removed my 5 stitches a week or two ago and while the area is still a little red I report for your information, I haven't lost my good looks :D

Not sure if the above pic will show up but I also have been riding up in Canada. Might not be as warm but god damn you don't get cold riding that thing, I never thought dirt bike riding would be as physically demanding as it is but it's a ton of fun. Also, yeah who says it's just for video games.

Looks like a great time Κracus :up:

I'm hoping for snow in Minnesota the next time I visit, to be able to bring out the snowmobiles.

Nah I've been a bit more cautious around pools of water I can't see through. My main challenges are the hills and avoiding boggy areas. I've got wheelies down pretty good at this point so roots/tree logs aren't too much trouble. Short bunny good are on my list to practice next.

Snowmobiles are so much fun but it's such a short timeframe to get to use them and I live in Canada! I've pondered getting one but I can't commit to it at the moment. I might get a cheap used one some day. Problem is you need a trailer to get them to a good spot, an entire suite to stay warm etc... I dunno, they seem like such a huge investment for so little playtime. I can't wait for the first snow so I can take the bike out and have some snow fun with it though.
