We use Khan's method and neither I nor my scale can recommend it as an effective weight-loss method. Nothing stirs the appetite like the vigor of outdoor laundry-hanging!

But if you were to calculate the benefits, would you include the caloric requirement of earning the money to buy a new dryer every 8 years (This seems to be the part completely left out by gas/electric/air drying comparisons)?

I'd just love a washer and dryer that actually FIT into our laundry recess in the hall, instead of sticking their ugly white noses out just far enough to stub our toes...

I've had several good experiences with appliance salespeople (including a Home Despot worker who came in early on her shift to make sure I got the exact microwave/hood range I wanted, and had it ready for me to go at the front of the store so I didn't have to drag kids all around, bless her).

I wanna see a double blind test on someone with a clothesline and someone with a dryer, identical loads, 5 year test period, at least 350 gantt charts and some spiffy 3d pie charts, weekly staff meetings, and someone get on the phone to one of the major networks and get them on this as a reality show pronto.

Do you still have those contract researchers in your contacts list?

I suspect they'd need at least C2D laptops to run the project...

Hemi quad cores, and I want a little exhaust riser with a radiator sticking right up out of the middle of the keyboard. Big enough to hang a clothesline on.
