I myself like to stay away from them.
because, ya know, a lot of shy animals
I need to buy a tape measure - any suggestions for where?
there was a whole reply associated with this. Long story short, Maplin sells great deals on tape measures, but tries to sell you random other things that you blatently don't need. You wouldn't get that kind of hassle in B&Q, that's for sure.
just go in and buy a tape measure.
it was like a £1 for a half decent 5m one
And they fear it
when I extend it out 10cm and pretend it's a pistol
My dog had an unfortunate experience with one. He licked it as i was using it and it bent, made that snappy noise, and collapsed, and he got a massive fright and ran away.
you know when you click on the related videos, then after about 5 you find yourself watching something really weird and wondering how the hell you got there....
... anyway I ended up watching a video of a cat walking on tin foil. so no, they can.
