Lots of cool stuff. Really, I am tempted by much of it. However after many years of carefully studying all of the stupid things I could buy, I remain convinced this is at the top of the list. I absolutely must have one of these some day. Nothing I have ever seen tops it.

This is the one you probably want if you have visitors:
» YouTube video

I have been watching FPSRussia videos for years, lots of good stuff in there, but this faked one isn’t one of my favorites. It’s funny enough to watch, but I like the real stuff. The flamethrower video is great, among many others.

I love that skit also. Key and Peele at their peak are nothing short of brilliant. Continental Breakfast. Racist Zombies. I Said Bitch. Dueling Hats. Insult Comic. Substitute Teacher, brilliant. And if you haven’t seen East West College Bowl, that one is guaranteed to break you up.

I have a certain idea I have been thinking about.... A pinball machine record high score indicator, made of Nixie tubes and controlled by Arduino or something similar. I have done some preliminary research and I think it is doable. But it won't be cheap that's for sure. It looks like the best way to get the Nixies is from those guys from Russia on Ebay. Then you have to sort out the high voltage power supply and then connect it to the Arduino for control. Another alternative would be to use a push button setup to cycle the numbers to set a new score when necessary. Combine it in a cool box with a backlit logo for the pinball machine and maybe even add in some alphanumeric Nixies for recording the person't name... still just thinking on this one. It would sit on the machine as a topper.

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