Yes, I too  have wrestled with the snake-y beasts but never, no, never, would I throw out a set of functioning lights just because I can't get them untangled!

Of course, the longest string I've ever had to deal with was 100 twinkle lights. I suppose if I had several strings of 100 all tangled together, well....nah, that'll never happen!
