    The joy of unwrapping a freaking cheap children's watch is upsetting, huh? Especially when you specifically ask for a smart watch...SIGH...Anyways, what was the worst gift you've ever gotten in your whole life?

    My girlfriend bought me some used books one year that she thought looked interesting.

    The thing is - they were not interesting - just old history books with outdated information.

    In my opinion gifting someone a book you haven't read is in poor taste - it's like giving someone a box set to a tv show you know nothing about and hoping isn't trash - and expecting the other person to spend 10+ hours of their life figuring it out for you.

    EDIT:

    Not mine, but my brother asked Grandma for a "yu-gi-oh jinzo box tin" which comes with a bunch of booster packs and a Jinzo - she bought him a simple metal tin - probably cost her like $2.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    One year, I was gifted clothes I never wore instead of Gamecube.

    Now, I can have all the Gamecube games I want, but can't DL clothes.

    Life.

    Seems like OP doesn't know how much a smart watch costs.

    Im fine with any gift. As long as its not stupid things like girls clothing, make up and stuff. Then that'll be the worst gift. Im a guy btw.

    Wait till Molecular Assemblers come to existence. Then you can make all the Bugattis, Lamborghini's and Ferraris from the comfort of your home all you want. And all the clothing, food, entertainment and shelter you want. Nano Technology is improving and its coming fast. After Molecular Assemblers then next is increasing human life span, by finding a way to fix the telomerase problem. All this stuff is coming in the future.

    I never liked asking for things for Christmas. If someone did give me something, great. If not, I wouldn't get upset over it. In addition to that, most people who did give me something always gave me books. Or chocolate. I like books and chocolate.

    Lol I bought my girlfriend really expensive diamond earrings one year and in return she got me underwear, undershirts, and socks I kid you not. Needless to say that she's now my ex for completely unrelated reasons.

    But I wahnt it naoww, wahhh :sad:.

    I wonder if gun control will become a problem if people can make their own?
    I guess kids like this won't have to beg for BB guns or have to worry about putting their eye out.
