I find mine almost indispensable now. I use it for timing my parking meters, the pizza delivery guy, boiled eggs, how long the young waitress at the Tim Horton's coffee shop can continue talking without taking a breath, the lit times on my coleman lantern (so I know when my cannister is running empty), intermissions between periods on hockey games. Stuff like that.
How 'bout you guys? You use these things at all?
