Leaf blower and child's swing come together at last

(CBS News) So your blogger here had been thinking of calling it night in terms of posts on The Feed. But this video from the 1980's demonstrating a leaf blower propelling a child in a swing was simply too good to resist. Genius or otherwise? Watch and decide for yourself.
