I've seen the ant colonies before, but do you have picks for a kinetic ball sculpture, sounds interesting

Trying very hard to ignore this one. Especially IF only 5-10 will be built. Seems to me they will at least hold their value and most likely increase in value.

I saw a gun at the exterminator supply last week that looked like AR-15 that shot table salt at flies. Lots of fun at picnics.

Stupid thing I don't need but bought.

A roll of uncirculated 1953 nickels for my 1953 Grand Champion. Don't ask me why, I thought it would be cool to set it up the same as it was back in 1953 when the game was new and being filled with new 1953 nickels.

Sorry, this must be disqualified from this thread. Because this is not stupid.

This is awesome.

Found a fun RC Rock Crawler complete kit for my son (myself) for $149.00 at the local RC shop.

That sounds like something I would almost do. Few years back I bought roughly 70lbs of random tokens, just because in the ebay photo, I saw some specific tokens I had to have in the photos of the piles he took.

I have been thinking it would be appropriate to use nickels that are older than the year this game was first routed. That would be the buffalo and Jefferson nickels up to 1953.

One could argue that a coke machine and stoner theatre candy machine are only kinda stupid. But...

But when I bought an outside pepsi machine yesterday, my daughter couldn't stop laughing and shaking her head. I convinced her the soft serve ice cream machine and shave ice machine were good ideas. I cant get her to get behind this one, but my granddaughter sees it as an opportunity for more types of glass bottled soda.

Quoted from ccbiggsoo7:

any pinball topper would fall under this!

Yes, but I think they look good... In a home setting... At a pinball arcade... No, they look like garbage and just take away from the uniformity of the pins. But, I really think if you have a decked out game room with lots of posters and knick knacks then you gotta go topper crazy.
And really all the decor in any game room or home is unnecessary... But, I got a whole room of Frazetta prints, a whole wall of Blake paintings, a flash gordon wall, my own paintings, and creature from black lagoon, dolph lundgren, ultimate warrior, golden ax posters, and an iron maiden stairway(full of iron maiden flags). All unnecessary. But, I wanted them.
And I want to get a Dio doorway gypsy bead thing... Don't know what those are called. But, I want to take out one of my doors. Put in one of those wire door decorations and have it be of Ronnie James Dio. Don't think they sell one, might have to be custom made... But, shouldn't be too hard to make. And the door really needs to come out. Might make 2... As I might replace the bathroom door with one as well. As that needs to come out as well for the lower level.
