This thread died and I didn't think it would. Anyways:

Bumper for a Savage and Reverse for a Savage. You can run over just about anything and the tires are in front of the bumper so you never hit it.

cigarettes arnt useless... i wish i had come up with them.... I'd be rich...


ppl paying money now to get sick later on in life, and then have to pay more money for hospital fees... And they have a shortened life too..... they are a good money maker.

and even with all we know about what they do to you... ppl still buy them??.... and its legal, strange world this is.

I agree with all of these except the Phillips. Slotted screws can slip too easily.

Spinners and cheap alcohol.

Not only cigarettes are pointless, but all drugs (especially cocain) are. I bet the crime rate worldwide would be 75% lower than what it is now.

Duratrax is not Junk . nor Not name brand. look at them they are just a division of one HUGE company that makes very good products.
i bet you if you were to look at all your rc stuff that you have lots " duration " associated stuff.

duratrax sells a re-badged rc vehicle. Many of which, you can also get from smartech.

it does when one bashes smartech and loves duratrax, when in reality, they sell the same exact vehicle

so, lets do some math here, if some duratrax vehicles = smartech vehicles... and smartech = junk, that'd lead me to conclude that duratrax = junk too.

Cant say I owned a smartech before, but I have a duratrax truck and had nothing but problems after I broke in the engine to what the movie told me to do. So therefore, my experience with this brand of rc makers, leads me to believe that they make junk![:'(] And never again will I buy another product from them.

Guitars with more than 2 necks and I said 2 because I only know of one person that actually uses 2 at a time. If I wanted 3 guitars in one Id save some money and buy 3 separate guitars.

Hey do you remember when Rick Nielsen played that 5-neck Hamer on stage with Cheap Trick? It was pretty much a 'gee whiz' type of exhibition, but also kind of cool when he reached all the way to the bottom neck.

I beg to differ. The dreamcast is not bad. I mean sure for the money you could buy a PS2 or xbox or whatever, but it isn't bad. I like the controller design too. I bet you wouldn't be saying that if it got as popular as the PS2. And gosh, Napolean Dynamite was awesome!
