Why can't they just sell knock off electronics like they used to.  Do you have any idea how hard it is to find an iPed on the streets?

I once purchased a pallet of tile off some guy in a van and it turned out to be thousands of iPads

Wait, what if the floor tiles are those Italian something something that cost 400 bucks a tile?  You know those stupid tiles they always talk about in those stupid storage war shows?  So if you got those tiles instead you could sell them and turn a tidy profit!

I know A&E needs to start a new show about idiots getting ripped off but it turns out the items used to trick them were worth more then they paid!

We can call the show Farking Retard Wars

I thought it was Win 8 that used tiles. Don't know why Apple would try and copy such a shiatty OS.

Yes, then you can claim to have some taste.

Bought something called an iPud from a guy in a parking lot the other day. Supposed to be the latest thing. When I got home, this was in the box. I paid two-hundred bucks for this thing.

Good tiles can really tie a room together. Don't be such a bummer, man.

I allowed greed to get me once when I was about 17. I was working at a gas station and the owner was nice enough to install basic cable in the little breakroom. One evening a guy in a cable truck stops by to get gas or something and when he noticed our cable cords running into the breakroom he asked me if I was interested in a de-scrambler. I gave him $60 for a little tool that I was supposed to screw into the back of the television that would give me all of the movie channels. He got that money in his hand and he was out of the door faster than a biatch. Of course, I screwed the device on and it was useless. Funny thing is later in life, I was a cable man and I realized he had sold me something called a sheild tool. Its what we used to keep people from stealing cable at the taps. So, while I'd like to call this guy a dumb ass, I was once him...or her. Didn't RTFA.

I'm surpised that they were thoughtful enough to give you something to eat instead of rocks or some rusted metal scrap. You get some Keebler garlic club crackers and some mayo and you got a nice little lunch there.

I really don't get why people think Beats are so damn awesome. You can get a set that looks and sounds just like them, only minus a 'b' on the side and save a hundred dollars. And why the holy fark are people walking around with them on their necks at the mall or where ever. You need to be ready for a DJ session at a moment's notice? You need to be ready to listen to music at all times and earbud just won't cut it?

lately I've seen Gamestop employees wearing them at work. Not connected to anything since they can't listen headphones on the job, they are strictly used as a fashion statement. I don't understand why you'd pay 200 bucks for a piece of 'studio quality' equipment that's only purpose is to look cool and show how much money you have to spend on stupid shiat.

They're all about conspicuous consumption, as you alluded to. They're not even good for DJing because the cans don't rotate.

I have a pair of those. I got them for $35 since they were a demo model.

More likely that's what is being "promoted" that month.  The original beat solos and HD are $200 off at the moment.

I love my Sennheiser HD-280s, but I'm just a consumer nowadays. Lots of people swear by those Sonys though.

I bought some marinated steaks from a guy off the street. Something's weird though. Should black pepper have eight legs or only six?

It seems like once a year, when I'm at a house party and a number of us are hanging out in the garage, one of these guys will pull
up in a van with coolers in the back to offer us "Premium steaks, I got an extra box here. Normally $200 but I'll let it go for only $60,
That's only $5 bucks from each of ya."

For some reason I have no desire to eat any food that's been sitting in the back of a van all day.

Hey dumb bunny I wasn't expressing any support for Beats. I was commenting that a person with taste would avoid them, but due to your old age I can see how things like that may slip by.

White pickups with a deep freeze and a gas generator were really common in the Northeast.

I've bought boxes of meat 5 or 6 times. That meat is safe, it's just generally mediocre quality.

It's on-par with what Omaha Steaks has become, although I used to love that place.

Getting a dozen (small) bacon-wrapped filets for $25 is nice for a cookout.

Don't buy the "fresh" Mayport shrimp from the guys on the side of the road, down here in Florida. Boiled peanuts are OK, though.

Hey mildly retarded porcupine, I wasn't suggesting you were supporting Beats. I was wondering why, in general, people would like them, but due to your young age I can see how things like that may confuse you.
