I would also like to hope that we take things on TV with a grain of salt, as it were. There are times that I'll watch, say, AB and think "hey, that's pretty cool!" But I try it in my own kitchen and sometimes it really is better than the way I had been doing things, and sometimes it's not. Ray Ray's garbage bowl, for example. Do I think it's cool? Yeah, I can see how it might be helpful. As far as recycling, I see the garbage bowl mainly to keep things contained for a short period of time - you can always fish cans/bottle out later to throw them in the recycling bin. However, in my kitchen, my garbage is just under my work surface and my sink is just to my right - in reality, I don't need a garbage bowl. But if I'm at someone else's house, and we are cooking with several people in the small space, I usually grab a garbage bowl.
"Is ice hockey hard? I don't know, you tell me. We need to have the strength and power of a football player, the stamina of a marathon runner and the concentration of a brain surgeon. But, we need to put all this together while moving at high speeds on a cold and slippery surface while 5 other guys use clubs to try and kill us. Oh, yeah, did I mention that this whole time we're standing on blades 1/8 of an inch thick. Is ice hockey hard? I don't know, you tell me. Next question."
