 I'd say that's way more than a 'general' list.  There is a lot of stuff on there that I know I'd never use, and I'd be willing to bet a lot of others would never use either.  But, on the other hand, it's a good list to get ideas from on what a person might need.

I agree w/a lot of it but there are so many things on that list that we would never have in our home.
