    What's with these topics popping up recently?
    Are the kids(folks, people, cats) that come here really so dense that they can't figure out what they want or need?
    Seems to me that if you are taking purchase advise from some idiots on the internet, you deserve to get your stuff held up over at dealextreme.

    I think (not that it matters really) that if you are going to buy something, decide for yourself what you want, afterall you are the person who is going to use it not "whoever from whatever"

    I was going to reply, but I was unsure of what to say. Maybe someone can give me some advice concerning a suitable response.

    Although there is a kinda solution to this ... We can all just suggest random/weird/extreme/vile etc items to spend their cash on instead of the normal kinda crap!

    I guess a lot of people here are kids, and not really used to having money, so want to spend it?

    Standard reply should be either candy or alcohol to threads like that.

    I thought this was gonna be another thread... I was just about to say buy every kind of cheese at your local grocery store xDD

    And I actually don't know... TBH, I thought it was pretty hard... Since sometimes, people can never decide on what they want.

    If you can't decide what you want then you want nothing. Save your money. Don't be another mindless consumer causing more debt.

    Fuel the Chinese economy and destroy ours by buying products. It's the American way.

    That actually sounds so true. Like, I feel like getting a Wii right now, but I don't know if I should. Or maybe I'll get an Xbox 360 . . or should I? Rofl. [​IMG]

    If you have no clue what you should buy, that basically means you are bored with your life and are living too comfortably. Or maybe you're just a stupidface [​IMG]

    Unless you can't decide what to buy among a selection of things. That's actually a very cool experience.
