      This list doesn't even cover 10 uses for sheds. All of the points fit under the same category: STORAGE. What, so garden sheds can store garden tools, but a steel shed cant? Why? I ask you, Why? Are we so blinded by our own prejudice in our society that we can't simply accept that all sheds regardless of type are able to store a wide variety of items?

      This article highlights for me, the very serious and worsening problem of anti-shed behaviour in our society. I am appalled that sheds are so casually pushed into specific categories, implying that what one shed is able to do, a different shed of a different type cannot simply because of genetic traits, such as being small instead of big or being a steel shed and not a garden shed. That is by definition: racism.

      Oh and why is the same type of shed listed twice? WHAT IS THE POINT? Steel sheds can house bikes and scooters, O.K that's great. But was it really necessary to create another dot point just to point out that steel sheds can also store cleaning items?

      In fact, i could have written a better article than this in less than one tenth of the time. Here's an example (please bear in mind this is only a rough draft and changes will be made in order to present a more professional and refined final copy):

      1. SHEDS

      2. CAN

      3. BE

      4. USED

      5. TO

      6. STORE

      7. ALL

      8. YOUR

      9. SHIT

      HA. I didnt even need to use the 10th dot point.

      However in spite of all this, I must thank you because I possess two sheds at my house; a steel shed and a garden shed. You see we have a lot of roof tiles that were previously kept in neat piles in both sheds. However upon reading this article I realized that roof tiles are not to be stored in either a 'garden shed' OR 'steel shed' and promptly removed all of them from both sheds. Only a regular shed is able to house such an item and without this article to guide me, I would never have realized this. As such I thank you sincerely, for showing me the efficiency of storing items in a categorical manner with given relation to particular shed sub-species.
