Default Jumper packs for cars (yeah, off topic, I know....)

First, some things are not MEANT to last a long time. Over the weekend, I
saw a chap with a dozen 1" sponge brushes in his basket at Home Depot. Each
cost 98. A pack of eight sponge brushes at HF is priced at 88 !

Secondly, some things (not all thing, or possibly even most things) are
simply better at HF. I just bought a builder's square at HF that is way
superior to anything at the box stores. Why do I consider it superior?
Because the measurements embossed into the HF square are brown enamel
engraved into a yellow enameled frame. With standard squares, due to dirt
and the patina of time, the numbers are nearly impossible to read !

Your absolute comment may need to be calibrated a tad.
