See, I said Japanese trucks because we have two Honda Cars, those things have awesome gas mileage and they run forever.

I disagree about the Rustler comment though, it's an awesome first vehicle and it's bomb-proof.

I truly agree.
Ditto. Too much for the "bling" factor and no practical function whatsoever.

Here's another. A wrist watch for Flavor Flave.
(I never understood what crawled up into him to cause him to wear wall clocks are jewlery).
Anyways, I cannot stand his reality show. I bet he broke up with the winning girl from the first show just so he can make the second show. I bet he'll break up with the winner of the second season just so he can make another season. The only saving grace about this show was the episode of when that girl pooped on his staircase!

The sleep button on a digital alarm clock. If I wanted to sleep, I wouldn't have set the alarm in the first place.

BTW, my alarm clock is across the room. I almost always wake up late and notice that it has been turned off, but I have no memory of me getting up and turning it off. It takes 4 or 5 buttons to turn it completely off too.

lol, i'm really not a morning person. If you have the same problem as me, just pile a bunch of stuff on and around your alarm clock. The next morning you will have to move stuff to turn it off.[:@] lol, put post-it's covering all the buttons you need to turn it off.

ORIGINAL: TamiyaExperienced

The TORNADO FUEL SAVER, Split fire plugs(umm, the spark emits from only one point, not both at the same time), Bosch +4(for the other gullables), Blueblockers and that stupid neck airconditioner......who is gunna wear that while jogging?

Ok, I'm done...

Word!

I cannot believe people are stupid enought to buy Splitfire plugs for the extortionate cost they sell for.

Also, as for Tornado fuel saver, the quack who invented that should be drawn an quarted by Yaks!
Seriously, why would you want to swirl the airflow into the manifold? You need non-turbulant airflow to get into the manifold. All the tricks to increase HP (and also fuel efficiency) entail moving more air smoothly and quickly to the intake valves! If you think about it, modern engines use longer runners to get fuel and air towards the intake valves. If the air is tubulent in these sections of the intake, the engine will become air starved and you will have a richer mixture which will hurt power and also efficiency.

Have any of you guys seen the gadget with the clips and magnets you attach to the spark plug wires? Now that inventer is a total dumb idiot with his head up his....you know. All that thing is is a bunch of plastic clips from any cheap hardware store and electrical wires of the improper gauge! The thing is rigged up so when you run it, it short circuits and causes a fire (not very safe). Even if everything in this gadget is safe and will not cause any fires, how would the magnets increase electron flow from the distributor to the spark plug? Notice that this invention is so lame that it is not even advertised on TV (you know, all the crap and junk that sells for "...$19.95 plus shipping and handling")? This inventor gets my idiot of the year award.

You forgot the funniest part. "But wait, there's MORE!!! Call within the next 10 minutes and we'll double your order, absolutely FREE!!!! But that's not all...."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.........It's so predictable, there's one of those in every commercial.

I have to disagree with you on that one. my sleep buttong got a workout during the school year. I'm one of those people whos normal schedule is waking up at 1 or 2 in the afternoon and staying up till 3 or so. I would get to school literally 15 minutes after I woke up. I think the most useless invention is that stupid Hello Kitty guitar they are trying to sell for 200 bucks on Musicians Friend. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/produ...tar?sku=512071

Read the reviews, they are funny. On a couple of them, people are like "Yeah I play mostly death metal, and thrash and stuff. This axe is absolutly crushing. If you arent' too intimidated by the pickgaurd, then def. get this"
