Stupid Stuff We Really Want
« on: April 23, 2011, 03:41:19 PM »
I don't think I can go another day without buying this

I'm a huge sucker for little figurines. And I'm insanely crazy about Panty & Stocking. I need help.

How about you guys? Show us some dumb stuff you want.

I've been meaning to check out panty and stocking with gaterbelt.

I want this in my backyard:


Okay fine.. more realistically.. I really want this figure. But too darn expensive for a pvc. I might given in though..

I really thought when I clicked on that I'd see a $10,000+ crazy PC build. But still, that ssd is a beast.

Gobs, that's a good cause though, that series is way cute! Turkitage, I will move close to you if you can get that mech in your backyard haha! I might bite into the 3DS purchase soon, Walter.

This's something that caught my eye a few years ago ...

The Japanese reissues of some of my favorite Judas Priest CDs (the first 3 on top), remastered from the original master tapes and in limited edition mini LP packaging

I still kick myself for not having bought them on Amazon Japan, while they were still in print.

This is a fun thread.  Here are a few things (Toys, naturally) I want but will never be able to justify spending hundreds of dollars on.





That's a really slick PVC turk.  But yikes it's pricey.  SSD drive would be awesome to have, too.

Smith & Wessen 500 Magnum Revolver. So crazy. $60 for about 20 bullets. Would love to own it and justify firing several shots at the range.

Actually, that's a pretty decent rifle there  :guts:
So what exactly is stupid about it? The price, or the fact that France doesn't have Second Amendment?

Really? I thought that this thread was about things that are very expensive, but have no useful purpose in real life. Things that are there purely for vanity. And unlike the giant Transformers replica or the $700 die cast dolls, a rifle can actually be put to good use, like hunting, home protection or personal defense and etc.

What constitutes stupid? It's in the eyes of the users that post the stuff. I consider owning an SSD to be an extravagance, and hence stupid. But I still want one.

I see you changed your name, but can I still remember you as GayHumper?

Ok Ok... I'll bite...



Its not really stupid, but I can't imagine myself being able to afford one anytime soon.  My little 82 honda gl500 will have to work for me for the time being.

I can relate to this one. Personally, I've wanted a Ninja for years but the city I live in has crappy roads, and lots of snow, hell there's a blizzard outside my window, as I'm typing this. It would just be so horribly inefficient to have a bike that I can't bring myself to get one.  :judo:
