Quoted from xsvtoys:

I have been watching FPSRussia videos for years, lots of good stuff in there, but this faked one isn’t one of my favorites.

Nothing could be faker than his Russian accent....

Ha true, all part of the silliness. Have nice day.

My old reeboks looked a lot like these. I couldn't find a picture of my model. From 1986. They were pretty sharp.

The other thing I was going to say is shoes never fall into the stupid thing category. Mostly. (For me)

I can see getting a pair now.

Quoted from c508:

Just ordered these Jordan III retro re-releases.
Now if I can find some acid wash 501s in my size and a suitable neon skater/surf T-shirt I can be one of the coolest kids in 8th grade again!

I’m old...but young enough I pick up a pair for myself and my 2 year old! pretty sick...though the Jordan Cement Timberlake’s @1600 on eBay

This triton personal submarine has been distracting me for a few years now. I really just want a serious ride in it. Owning it. Possible someday... Not today. You would need a world class boat wrapped around this. Now. We are in the multiple millions. I don't have that kind of money. Someday perhaps...

Remember how much I wanted an all red billiard room with a giant stuffed camel... and how I wanted a disco room with my own disco dancers... and a party room with fancy friends?

$80 shoes for a two year old? Now that's truly a stupid thing that you don't need.

I don't need this or that.
Just this ashtray. And this paddle game.
This ashtray and this paddle game, and that's all I need. And this remote control.

I thought everyone has this already...?

About as good as spray cheese in can.

Quoted from rlslick:

For those long road trips picking up pins! Yes, I was a backer!

Uh.. just piss in your big gulp cup? (I've done this) I think this is for folks in Wyoming. We have public restrooms practically everywhere here in Florida.

Rather than striving to solve homelessness, you should strive to own this sub. When you actually can afford this sub, you will likely be able to afford to solve homelessness, if you still so chose.

Quoted from mcluvin:

I must do both.

Truthfully I could almost never buy a personal sub. I would much rather dump those funds into the human race in a different way. But. These watercraft are really amazing these days. That's why I say both.

I'm going to die trying my friend. That and play pinball!

Homelessness, it's just getting worse and worse here in California. My fiancée runs when homelessness comes up with me. She wants me to focus on my welfare, which I do. In this case I will do both again. My welfare. And the homeless.

See now I'm rambling...

#167 1 year ago

With my luck I will help fix homelessness only to be sued for doing so.

I used to wonder if the glass was half full or half empty. Now I wonder if the glass is made of glass or if it is something else entirely.

A couple of years ago, I would have laughed at this.

However, my neighbor picked up some kind of submersible that looks just like a killer whale. It's one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen and I am sure not as extravagant as the vessel you reference, but kind of cool nonetheless.

I was mesmerized by the movie the life aquatic with Steve zissou.

The triton sub would fit right into my real life version of the movie. There are several options, but it can go very deep, like down the trench deep.

I used to call on a ship builder in Dana point. I loved their ships. I didn't care what they bought.

They were works of art, those ships. So much money to make and buy.

The technology is here to explore the world in style today!

Well it's a little loud and disorienting. And you're being a little rough with my things.

Report how well it works. No app for it though, right?

Quoted from ChiPin1978:

No app for the US version. I talked to the Worx people about it and they said its scheduled for Summer 2019. Ugh. I decided to move forward without it.

I got these for Christmas. I ended up buying a bunch of rope light as well for my bar. It matches the warm light of incandescent and LEDs as well, with profiles. There are second party apps for effects and such. Theyre pretty cool, just pricey. We should make a hue thread!

Quoted from Chitownpinball:

A couple of acres but I'm only trying to maintain about 8300 sq ft with the Landroid, so less than its 1/4 acre capacity. So far, so good. I laid down the perimeter wire Sunday and its been mowing away since then. I'm getting less runtime per charge than I expected so troubleshooting that with Worx. I'm happy so far.

I'm just surprised at which head bobbles

Swimming pool. Biggest waste of money. The dog likes it. Just installed it and already ready to get rid of it.

Really? I would love to have a pool like that. It looks great and would be a lot of fun if you ask me.

How about a Nixie clock?

Our pool is the best addition I ever did or will ever do to our home. The family memories associated with it are priceless to me.
