I get the dumbest emails. [Nov. 24th, 2008|09:28 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick

Oh man.
Hi there Brad

I've been looking around the internet for a solution to our population explosion of auto garage doors. I'll give you my situation & my vision.

Here goes, We live in a small village, St.germans Cornwall UK. Both my missus & I have moved to a retirement area,nice!! not.. To late now, we live here.All the oldies are not into us at all (as we are young).You know how it is.

Well these people need to be taught a lesson, i think.hahaha.. Well most of them have single auto garage doors. This is where you come in hopefully. (I noticed your website & what your into).

Is there anywhere i can buy or make a door opener. My vision is to sit out in the garden with the guys & a few beers, watching the mass confusion as the neighbours lose control of their beloved doors opening/closing or not even working.

Can you help? You guys helped us in wars in the pasted, can you in this one. Britain needs you, haha lol...

Today, your garage door. Tomorrow, the world's garage doors?

Aww. I think it's kind of cute. The mental picture of the guy standing around with his friends opening his neighbors garage doors is pretty funny. Maybe you could just let him know about TV-B-Gone?

There really isn't much to do in St Germans

It's miles from anywhere, surrounded by muddy estuary feeding the Tamar river and seems to have the sole purpose of looking pretty as you take in the majestic views from one of IKB's viaducts on the way from civilisation towards the pagan badlands of kernow.

Someone actually just mentioned that town in Cornwall to me, and said it was very pretty.

Nice! It would also be cool to distantly turn on/off lawn sprinklers, electricity, water supply etc..

if you use redacted, you mean you changed the original text, and published the alternate one, not hidden it.

...and when you are done developing that, a wireless device that flushes toilets would be awesome! Even if the toilet doesn't need to be flushed.
