    a purple tie-dye hoody bought when pissed, makes me look like a gay-neo-hippy, occasionally gets worn to the odd psytrance rave (only if i'm pissed when looking through my wardrobe)

    I once got caught up in one of those mock auctions in an empty shop, on Oxford Street, and spent £60 on a shit camera, with shit accessories in a shiny box.

    Was even worse cos it was £60 I had taken out when closing down an old bank account which I had been meaning to do for ages, so the good of getting something done was replaced with the anger of being ripped off.

    I took it back 10 mins later after realising I had been conned, and had to stand and argue at length, with 5 dodgy geezers to get my money back.

    Lesson learned...

    Buy in haste - repent at leisure...

    If you're like me and buy weights you never used properly, because you bought nike shoes and changed your mind, so took them back for store credit and all the other shoes were shit. So you buy weights and feel bad whenver you don't use them, which is all the time.

    I got a set of weights.

    Just a £30 barbell set of York dumbell weights from Argos.

    They're nice. Metal Chrome handles and black weights.

    I use 'em sometimes, (often in guilt after partying) but they still look cool tidied away at the end of the bed, and one day will look lush in my minimalist Penthouse apartment (ha!)...

    Better than all those fools who buy £500 multigyms or running machines for the spare room that they never use, or sign up for unused gym memberships.

    I don't buy many trainers, but am ultra choosy when I do, liking old skool or future yet practical styles when I do. (and being skint)...

    I do look after them too, and have 2yr old shoes looking box fresh (ish).

    I got some Reebok Instapumps (most confy shoes I ever wore) and one popped after 2 months, but I kept 'em clean. Took em back, used the 'I'm a runner, I only used wore twice' lie) got another pair, which lasted 2 yrs before popping.

    I don't wear Nike...

    My girlfriend had some that fell to bits after 2nd time worn, took em back. Replacements fell to bits too.

    This piece of shit from Spencer Gifts. Its one of those "flame lamps" which is actually a cheap ass computer fan, a piece of felt cut to look like a flame, and some yellow LEDs. All this in an enclosure that looks like a tiki god. Well this thing is the biggest peice of crap I ever bought. The fan started breaking only weeks after I bought it. I tried to get replacement parts from the Spencer Gifts website but they gave me such a hard time I just gave up.

    A word to the wise, don't buy effect or other lighting gear from frikken Spencer Gifts, go to a stage lighting place instead. Spencer Gifts is really for those who are too stupid to know better but I know better yet I bought crap like that from them anyway.... ugh!

    Ahah we were on this cruise ship to STOCKHOLM and i was drunk/wasted we went to this small shop that had like miniatures and stuff then I saw it on the self:

    [​IMG]

    AIR MOTHERFUCKING BAZOOKA! It was like kinda like in The Blues Brothers you know there was this light coming down to it from the sky and I was hypnotized. I just went and grabbed the thing, laid down the cash and bought it right away, costed like 30 euros? I didn't care it was so cool...

    Then we went back to the ship and it broke down in 20 minutes or something. But yeah I still got it. I'm a proud owner of the air bazooka.

    I'd be tempted! Nearly bought one from the Gadget Shop but they didn't have a display one out to play with...

    The non-stupid part of my brain kicked in and said 'It can't be as great as described! Or else t'would be the finest novelty invention ever!'



    :rolleyes:
