email 'gumption trap'

;i;oki

Robert Pirsig coined the term in his magnificent 1974 book, "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance."

A familiar gumption trap appears above.

Oftimes when you click a "send an email" link, instead of being taken right to your mail program, with the recipient's email address up top and everything simple and familiar, you're confronted with a dispiriting page like that up top.

Filling in boxes online to send an email is a dead end.

Too bad most of the franchises crying "Internet wolf" — newspapers, magazines and their ilk — still use the box system.

Just another name for a coffin.

I'd bet 19 out of 20 people, upon encountering the boxes for your name and email address, leave instantly.

And when the Captcha pops up, well — game over.

EZ Slice Pie Pan — 'Perfect Pieces'

1gfghfh

I don't know if this will be as big as the Edge Brownie Pan but they had me at the slogan.

From websites:

•••••••••••••••••••

EZ Slice Pie Pan

Is it a pie if it isn't round?

This clever non-stick pie pan has a distinct advantage over round ones.

Serving a slice exposes only one edge, so less filling oozes out, leaving each piece more attractive.

Features convenient diagonal cutting guides for six perfect pieces and easy-grip handles.

Utilizes oven space better than traditional round pie pans.

Dishwasher safe carbon steel.

14.75"L x 6.25"W x 1"H.

NerdWithSwag.com — 'A holistic urban lifestyle guide... for the 22nd century'

Uiyiu

It had me at the name, didn't matter what it's about.

Which isn't clear even after spending some time there.

No matter.

Ours is not to reason why, it's just to know when something's fly.
