MrEricSir: In other news, Sears still has enough money in their piggy bank to get product placement in a comic book.


To be fair, comic sales are so bad, they probably only had to pay 5 bucks and a pack of Twizzlers to get their product placement deal.

Eh, I'm done with Craftsman. I got one of those 19.2v combo packs as a gift a few years ago with the drill and impact, and they both died within an hour of usage. Meanwhile my old refurb'd very same model 19.2v drill from the early 2000's still works great. W T F?

Also, their fine tooth 3/8 ratchet looks like a bottle opener with a large snap ring holding the ratchet mechanism in. I bought it to give my prized narrow head long handled Snap-On an occasional rest. What happened to nice, reasonably priced hand tools that were mostly made in USofA?

/damn you Danaher
//rant off

CygnusDarius: Sybarite: His super powers come in the form of a modular power tool with nine interchangeable attachments

And you thought Aquaman had lame powers.

Seems like a good idea, but bad execution. However...

Imagine a guy with several robots, nanomachines, and specialized tools that, along with pieces of carbon, could create any time item he needed on a molecular level...


FTFM.

Imagine a guy with several robots, nanomachines, and specialized tools that, along with pieces of carbon, could create any time he needed on a molecular level. Also, his nanomachines could deploy to destroy existing things (from enemy weapons and tech, to his own) in a molecular level not just to disrupt the bad guy,s but to give him raw materials for new items.
