Can a hair dryer change your life?

I was waiting in the checkout line at my local food co-op yesterday when I glimpsed the cover of this month’s Budget Living magazine. In big letters, a Cosmo-style article title posed the question: “Can a hair dryer change your life?”

Can it? Can a hair dryer change my life?

Well, I didn’t think so, but what if I’m wrong?

I can’t find a good answer to this question, so I’m opening it up to our readers. Can a hair dryer change your life? If so, what does that say about your life?

    A hair dryer dropped in a bathtub certainly can change your life!

    My wife works as a hair dryer at a spa in Aspen, Colorado, and she has changed my life, that’s for sure.

    Well, yeah, but then its, er, Hair Dryer Nature isn’t coming into play. You could get the same effect with an extension cord.Let’s see. If you’re attacked by a particularly stupid mugger, you could defend yourself by pretending the hair dryer is a gun. However, surprisingly few muggers are courteous enough to submit to an IQ test so you can decide how best to foil them.If you drop something valuable belonging to someone else in the snow, a hair dryer could help you find it and not have to sell your house to replace it.

    Of course, Cosmo probably means is that having fluffy-looking hair (even if it’s actually more brittle) will change your life by making you more Popular with members of the appropriate sex(es). As for what that says about your life…well, in life, as in physics, things that can be moved by trivial forces are themselves trivial.

    To quote James Bond, I find your answers, “Shocking! Just shocking!”

    I think my sister-in-law would believe a hair dryer could change her life. But that’s just sad.
