Living in LA area and seeking to buy two canoe paddles and two

floatation vests.

Are you referring to Los Angeles or Louisiana ?


I can't imagine anyone in Louisiana calling them "floatation vests".

Gotta be Los Angeles.

OK, lets start over, there, Gene. What type of paddling do you plan on
doing, what kind of boat do you have, where exactly are you, and is this
really meant as some sort of foray into the world of newsgroups, or do

you
really need help in locating a sporting goods store in the sixth-largest
urban area on the planet?

Dude,

Gene was not the OP.



Yeah, I noticed that right after I lost internet access.

Since technology is "the practical application of knowledge" (check your
Webster's Collegiate) I submit that we all need it.

And yet another tongue-in-cheek definition of technology is "stuff that
didn't exist when you were a kid", and in that vein...who needs it? :-)

Antibiotics? Stereo recordings? Cmmercially viable (!) television?
Ball-point pens? ABS canoes? "Reliable" weather forcasts? Jet airplane
travel for the masses? Reliable refrigeration for transport of
perishables? Waxless &/or steel-edged skiis? Multi-speed bicycles?
Automobile seat beelts? Reliably uniform (mostly) highway systems?
Quality photography for amateurs?

A little thought could generate many more examples.

I'm guessing that Wal-Mart will have all that you need.
