The mention of WD-40 reminded me of the quite ancient "Vermont Philosophy of
Life" which describes the real need for only TWO THINGS in this life:

1.) You need WD-40, for those times when something won't move and
you WANT it to.


2,) You need Duct Tape, for those times when something moves and
you wish it not to move.

........There are also those 'Philosophers in the Field' who would subscribe
to the need for 'bag balm' but I believe the general population is still
divided on that issue.
