    Chad polls our loyal Patreon fans & they vote on the new theme for March.

    And the theme is something near and dear to many gadget lovers --- it's Stupid & Pointless Gadgets!!

    Chad's first Stupid and Pointless gadget may actually have a use, provided you don't mind look a bit dorky. It's the Wine Yoke.This is a hands free wine glass lanyard perfect for wine tastings, parties, etc. A neoprene sling holds your wine glass when you need both hands for other pursuits. Rubberized lining offers extra gripping power.

    And Chad's take: Chad was surprised that it actually holds the wine glass in a decent position. He used soda in his mini-test you'll see in this week's show, and it didn't spill. But he like others in the chatroom wondered if you would actually wear it a party. Perhaps if everyone in the room had one, it would be easier.

    Also I have never seen a wider price range for what appears to be the exact same gadget with different names. On Amazon you can pay anywhere from about $4.50 to $26.00 for one! Be aware, the very, very low priced ones take a month or more to arrive. The cheapest one I saw on 3/9/19 that was Amazon prime was $6.10, but check around if you're interested because Amazon prices can change by the minute.
