Paweł Morski ‏@Pawelmorski: @kjhealy @delong if our kettles took an hour to boil, I wouldn't mention other people's electricity.

Ryan Avent ‏@ryanavent: @Pawelmorski @kjhealy @delong I'll get right on that as soon as I find the bus that takes me to the 19th century.

Epicurean Dealmaker ‏@EpicureanDeal: @dsquareddigest @ryanavent @Pawelmorski @kjhealy @delong Your plug-in electric tea kettles are pretty cool, though.
