    So I was given a $100 Visa card today and I have no idea what to buy. I have an Ipod, 3DS (Acekard and DSTwo already), modded all of my systems (Cobra - PS3, Wasabi360, and my Wii has been good since the old Twilight hack days, not that I play it anymore), so I am covered on that side of things. I just bought some new shoes and I am pretty good on everything else, hence why I am having the problem.

    So my question is: What can I spend my money on? I am kind of nerdy and also love to cook. Any and all suggestions would be great (Other than "give it to me" comments). And just so you know I already have Netflix and no intention to get Steam or Origin so forget those. And it also has to be able to be shipped to Canada, so no weapons (DAMN!) or explosives (Double DAMN!).

    Well?

    Are people this spoiled in Canada?

    EDIT: You should probably keep the money till you know what you want to buy, it's better that way.

    Ummm...lol? I worked for and bought all of my stuff and never have had a handout before EVER! The $100 was a payment I received for catering a friends parents anniversary. It was a small event and the food was all provided, I just prepared it all and served it. I would say there were about 25 people tops.

    So NYAH! lol

    I see, sorry for the rude remark then, It's rare to see people getting a 100$ and have nothing to do with it here....

    There is a jk in there. And as this discussion is going on 4 different sites and the general feel is that of jealousy, I thought I would throw out the U Mad early on and get it over with. lol.

    And nice try Vulpes. lol.

    FUTURE POSTERS:

    No "save it" suggestions please. I am looking to spend this, not save it. Thanks.

    Canada isn't the only place with money.



    Oh and buy anime merchandise.
    That shit is like having a crack addiction, except it wont kill you.
    Er, not quickly anyway. You'll die a slow, painful, poverty stricken death...but god you'll have some cool shit.

    Good idea, but I am not the biggest fan of anime. After Dragonball GT ended (Watched from the beginning of DB, through Z and then GT as it happened. Still have the entire set of uncensored DBZ VHS's) I kind of lost interest. I tried to get into Yu Yu Hakusho and Inuyasha but I just couldn't. DB ruined it for me forever, lol.

    LoL, missed the JK.
    Anyways, buy something nice for your intimate partner ( if you have one ) or for your pets, OR for siblings.
    Failing those, gimmie.

    Buy stocks and invest in a stock market mutual fund. Screw saving it at banks. You get ripped off.

    In all seriousness (although I was completely serious above), we can't really tell you what you want. If you truly have nothing you really want right now, just hold onto it for when you're out and about. See something you want? Pick it up.

    I feel like we keep coming back to "random act of LCD TV".


    Which would be great.





    I'll give you access to the porn board....

    And what is this porn board? It would have to be a making porn board with me being cast in some roles. I am a great method actor, lol.


    Well, know of any cool kitchen gadgets? I am a 1st year chef, so things in that field might interest me. No hot sauces though. I already have some Blair's Ultra Death and some Capsaicin (OMG HOT!) and that is more than retarded. Deadly hot wings though. Deadlier taffy, lol.

    I also like cool gadgets and other things that I probably shouldn't be in possession of. I am a bad boy, lol.

    Headphones could be a good one.

    The Star Trek pizza cutter is funny. I would never use it though for fear of wrecking it or making people think I am a trekkie. Don't get me wrong, Cpt. Picard kicked ass, but it's just a show.
