I just bought this thing

http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/lights/8ed4/

On one hand, if it's as dope as it sounds it will make getting high about fifteen million times better, but on the other hand I just spent $130 (ebay) to project stars onto my wall.

Trick, my best friend got Laser Stars for his bday, and we've gotten a bunch of use out of it. I happen to think it's pretty awesome. You won't have any regrets.

You get what you pay for, Trick, and that looks alot doper than the stick-on-glow-in the-dark stars I stuck all over my bedroom ceiling for $5.99! Get pics to post!

I used to work at a store that sold this thing. We sold it for $130 as well. Those things flew off the shelf. Mostly middle aged men and stonerz bought them. Most of them musicians, of some sort.

Wrong. Good coke is worth it, the cut down shit on the other hand... major fucking bummer.

bua ha ha, i think most people would call a lot of my purchases "regrettable". i spend like a sailor.

like one time we were "urban camping" in my friend's living room since the campsite we were going to go to that day had fires. so we went to wal-mart for s*more supplies.

well, then we got ourselves in trouble trying on old lady hats, and i found one i just HAD to have and spent my very last $10 to have it. so we titled this picture "i have no money, but i have this hat!"

but money is for spending, so i never regret purchases if i have fun while i'm shopping :)

and yes, cocaine is a hellofa drug. actually regrettable.

It was the shit for a year then it died, and i had to get a PS 2 for new games. Systems are supposed to last five years, not one.

Jacob searched around on the internet for the lowest price, and everyone else had it higher than Spencer's.

Ivy, you got three guesses as to what that hat makes me want to do, and the first two don't count and got facefucked.

i've bought my fair share of weird hats. cheesy old church lady hats, or just vintage hats. i have a lot of 40s style hats. i think if i were more fashionable i could pull them off somehow, but it never happens.

there are too many stupid purchases to document here but my tops are:

1) sports cards...of which i am now stuck with boxes of stupid sets worth about 5.39 apiece
2) clothes that looked great at the store
3) tickets to a Meatloaf concert

wasnt a purchase, but i traded an S&M for a Hyper and cracked it one week in. yeah i know, stupid trade, but i was tired of looking at it.

RotationSlimWang
06-25-2008, 12:46 PM

... did you really just make a joke where calling you a creepy weirdo was equivocated to calling you black? You realize that (a) that's not even remotely a joke, and (b) you're actually a racist creepy weirdo? Like, legitimately racist?

look at this guy. the one with all the racist, overly sexual and possibly offensive jokes, acting offended. calling ME a racist on top of it all. you're killing me. and i say possibly because its just a wannabe stern act. you need a radio show 10 years ago.

You've been a creepy racist weirdo on numerous other occasions actually. The thing that makes you racist and me not is that you laugh at things that aren't remotely funny, like that long series of bad racial motivational posters. How does a fifteen year old Puerto Rican get so bitter about the world?

i keep buying electronic things i never seem to follow thru with ... i think i have 12 big speakers and only 2 of them are hooked up ... i bought one of the first sony dvd burners that could do most any format, spent 399 ? on it, and its still in the box ... i used to go to concerts just because i was bored for the night, even if i had no idea who they were or even sometimes when i didnt really care for them .. i have a 20 foot Cat in my driveway that has never been in the water in 10 years (but then someone gave it to me, so not sure if that counts). i am trying to cheap down a bit though and not be so dumb with my money x****

g-force platinum is fucking crazy. i took shrooms with my friend and we were gonna do things but we ended up listening to disco and watching gforce for like 3 hours.

and i'll have the projector on friday so i'll post a review. i also have some acid so i will probably post a second review when i get around to taking that.
