I do want the robotic laser equipped mosquito killer.


#3

So is this why you haven’t opened the safe yet?


#4

But will that underwear save me from the coming nuclear apocalypse?


#5

This one looks both fun and practical.


#6

Also, multi lane lidar.

Priorities, yo.


#7

The award goes to “fuel up anytime, anywhere”

Jesus Christ!


#8

I don’t care anymore. Biometric drone. Whatever. Sure

Its a biomimetic drone. I looked it up. Its just a remeote controlled airplane which moves and (sort of) looks like a bird. But you can’t eat it.


#9

you have to start somewhere…


#10

#11

All I wanted was a GTX 1080 ti. Was that too much to ask?

Apparently so.

I see that they didn’t make fun of the one thing that I saw where I said "I’d buy that” (which prompted an atomic eye roll from the wife) – the Battery Belt. A leather belt with a bank of embedded batteries.
When the wife queried “why would you want that ugly thing”, I uttered “I’m Batman” – it took several minutes before her eyes finally returned front and center.
(Sorry, no pic)

A wise man (George Carlin) once said, “Nail together two things that have never been nailed together before, and some schmuck will buy it.”

Edit: with ==> will.


#19

I got a pair of these for Christmas and they are great.

I mostly listen to podcasts and it works well. If you are a true audiophile with your music, then you need something different.

The idea goes back decades. Anyone else remember the Bone Fone in the late 1970s?
