Recently, the daily green published a slide show about 17 things you didn't know you could rent. Some of these are some we know, like tool rentals (Yes Rob doesn't go out and buy every tool on the face of the earth), Bicycles and cars. Some of these are things we didn't know like Wives and Sex Dolls. Anyway good to know that there are a lot of useful and some not so useful things to rent. Did I ever mention my Dad, who was cremated, was laid in a rented casket? Wasn't an Eco-issue, but a cost issue. Since he was to be cremated, and he was known to be extremely frugal, there was no sense in spending thousands on a casket just for the funeral. Renting one was about one tenth of the price. And it was the funeral home director that suggested it.
