It's ok. You just lack the scope of knowledge of how crappy our stuff was.

I voted TV but a good argument could be made for everything except maybe Tires. Also....you could have included Popcorn.

I don't know about motor oil, but there are tons more lube choices now.

I would like to compliment the other "Battery" voter on his/her astute consideration.

I'm glad to see batteries get some votes. I just think about all the very dim flashlights (the silver Eveready with the red switch) I had.
