[citation][nom]aznguy0028[/nom]or you can just get 8 normal hairdryers at 50$ a pop, that'll last you 8x500 = 4000 hours for the same price as this overpriced piece of junk.[/citation]
Your math has a little fail in it. You are assuming it takes the same amount of time to dry your hair with both dryers.

When I used to have long hair (yes I'm a guy who had long hair) I hated to waste time drying my hair. I would pay more for a dryer that had me spend less time in the bathroom.

Or you could buy 1000 Mickey Mouse wristwatches from K-Mart instead of one Rolex. I guess they last about the same.

[citation][nom]jomofro39[/nom]At least you can recognize that fact. I ignore my limitations, hence why I can't have nice things. For very long, anyways... Were the Ferrari engineers just bored or what?[/citation]

I ignore my limitations because I like shiny toys a lot. Three phones have been through the washing machine, and that's considered a merciful death when you look at the rest of my track record.

The rule of thumb is if it's nice, it'll break, but if it's ugly/useless, I'll be stuck with it for life.

[citation][nom]eklipz330[/nom]well some people have money to waste[/citation]
No. They have money they choose to waste, instead of benefiting others (and themselves) through charitable donations, for example.

Did anyone read the specs of these thing? 6.2 and 6.4 bar. That's insane. Isn't anything over 15 PSI regulated by law because of the potential lethality of the thing (gas has the ability to penetrate the skin). 6 bar would cut skin. Anyone else think this is B.S?

15 psi isn't anything to be regulated. It's a mere whiff. (relatively speaking to 1000+ psi for pressure washers, or the typically 100 psi in central air pressure systems).
