Fun with Freecycle: Curtain


Behold, the world’s greatest invention: the curtain with tension rod!


There are those who would say that the wheel is the greatest invention.  However, cars have put out so much pollution and killed so many people that it may have been the worst invention.

There are those who would say that fire is the greatest invention.  However, as I proved last week, fire is a hoax.  Fire neither burns nor does it put out heat.

There are those who would say that Saran Wrap is the greatest invention.  However…

Play, then jump to 6:45.

Well, he’s got a point there.  Still, this curtain is pretty good, too.  We used it to hide the junk in our closet when our sliding doors failed on us.  Now that we have doors again, we thought someone else might like it.

The curtain is tan and 5 feet wide by 6 feet long, and the tension rod is white.

You could use it to make a dress or a new carpet.  Perhaps you could turn it into a quilt or quilted wrapping paper.  The extendable curtain rod could be used as a weapon in case of a zombie biker attack (which tends to be a problem in Northern California, as you well know).  And there are those metal ring things to hold the two pieces together.  I guess you could use them for earrings or napkin holders or…

Or, maybe you just have a closet full of junk you’d like to hide.
