    I learned in a recent SF thread that the ball is hard to screw.

    The solution is to use it in a Prince Albert.

    push up soap dispensers - lots of potential, yet oddly neglected by designers. this one looks ok, but it belongs in a hotel.

    secretary desks - now that everybody's regular desk is taken up by their computer, they don't have space to read and write on paper. this one was designed by g. tibergaard nielsen.

    gillette super speed double edge razors - both the 40s and 50s versions are nice. i'm not hardcore enough for straight razors. i tried. i failed.

    sheaffer targa ballpoint pens - inertia! it even applies on the scale of fingertips. i write much more legibly with a heavier pen.

    I hate push-up soap dispensers. Terribly ill-conceived design--soap residue builds up and cakes around the spigot. I don't want to have to touch something disgusting in order to get my hands clean.

    Yeah, but another person's used soap gunk is really beyond pale.
