One of the bad things about having long hair is the accumulation of hair bunnies on the carpet. They roll around like tumbleweed in a cheap western, and people tell me that they are bad, and that I should get rid of them.
Well, they are not all bad.
If you let them accumulate for long enough, all the other carpet dirt gets trapped in them. Then, wearing a pair of running spikes, you can quickly scrape your feet around the carpet and hey presto! No need to hoover any more. You can do the moonwalk here if you're into that.
