I have to agree the "canned air" shouldn't be on there.  For one thing it's definitely NOT canned air, else it wouldn't be so toxic and explosive.
And besides, there's nothing pretentious about spending a few bucks to clean out $1000+ equipment and increase its life expectancy, and reduce its energy consumption.
My mom was about ready to buy a new laptop because it kept overheating while she was playing Farmville (first world problems?), but after spending a half hour taking it apart and cleaning off the dust that was caked onto the heatsink's intake vent, it runs good as new.  I didn't use canned air to do it (just some dry paper towels) but I think the point still stands ;)

I have to admit, the can of air reminds me of the movie Spaceballs.

I love canned air, when it's the right tool for the right job.

I have a bad personal problem, which is that it drives me completely batshit if I see someone using canned air for a job like spraying off the flat surface of their desk.

Are there any other sufferers out there of this disturbance that I have?

I want Himalayan salt block  counter tops.

In a house built from ice?

The sinks have two faucets, one for tequila and one for lime juice.

Sounds amazing.  I KNEW we missed something when we built the ice bar last weekend!!! I am shamed.
