    Plant nothing but cane in your yard. Total Cane with one way in and one way out. Burn it off when it's ready (Controlled burn, of course!) That'll let the neighbors know you're superior, and you can make money. You might could even sell a couple of Cane poles to kids. :eek:

    Do kids even still want Cane poles?

    You won't need a privacy fence, nobody's walking through or over thickets of Cane. They're not gonna see through it, either. You could bang your wife in the front yard, HOA will not see!

    Cane, the other moat that could stop a fucking tank.

    A Customer gave me a 1750 PSI electric pressure washer. I've always borrowed my work partner's 3600 PSI unit...last time I had to replace a spark plug to get it to run..not to mention the worry about "Is this motherfucker dead while I'm borrowing it, wtf?"

    Anyway, this little electric thing is the best thing since sliced bread! It left no streaks, and did a great job! It's light, no wand recoil..can run it with one hand. It may not be as fast as the gas one, but IMO it did a better job and was a lot easier on me. It got it done, even wiped away the streaks left by the big one.

    I mean I'm fully aware the little electric I have isn't going to last and is limited in performance. It is convenient and very easy to use for around the house jobs though, and surprisingly powerful enough to do more than I expected. When it dies I will buy another for the ease of use and cheap buy in.

    They are a pest down south that you can never really get rid of.................Gas is a sure fire way to kill the dang things........puts brown spots in your yard for a bit though.

    If you accidentally step in one of those beds you'll find out why they are called fire ants real quick. LOL

    Never heard of them up here. We get some nasty ground wasp nests you can burn with gasoline. Close to house/shed/garden best way to off them is to wait till night then douse the nest with boiling hot water.
