Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Do those actually work?

    I figured they did not work.

    I would buy them in the future if they worked.

    I really enjoy gaming with headphones. Speakers mean you can only listen to things with the volume up a tiny bit, lest explosions and loud sounds piss your roommates off. With headphones the only person being kept awake and driven deaf is me!

    I wouldn't really buy those Google shoes. They're hideous. Also, I'm not spending $300 on a pair of Nike high-tops.

    probably the same kind of person who'd wear a dickwolf shirt

  • KeithKeith Registered User regular
    Probably the people that wear PA shirts

    I kind of like the Penny Arcade shoes but that's because I love orange. Still wouldn't buy them though.

    I might wear them.

    I wouldn't buy them, but if they just appeared I might wear them.

    Not in public though. They just look comfy.

    Is the main reason for Nike putting these out so they can look at other companies and say "we've done our part now where the hell are the hoverboards"

    I bought my friend a fruit fucker shirt that wasn't too bad. He refuses to wear it in public, though.

    I really want to buy this 2500k. With a decent motherboard and DDR3 memory, probably looking at $400 after taxes

    But I also need to buy a new video card since mine is the verge of dying. Probably $300 after taxes.

    Likely gonna hold off on both until either the system stops working or the video card stops working while I save up.

    if I were to wear tshirts on the regular, I have made my mind up that I would only wear tshirts that say 'TACOS'

  • SLyMSLyM Registered User regular
    I recently bought a pair of shirts from topatoco. Which I like. Most of the PA shirts are pretty shit though. There are maybe a couple I would actually wear.

    I'd buy actual self-tying McFly shoes for far more than that, probably. I can't see myself ever paying $1k for shoes, though.

    edit: Sweet patent application. Not sure if I'd want a giant ass charging dock for my shoes...should just plug directly into the wall.

    LTM, docking is the future.

    Mori and I would like to upgrade our computer (it is so old, guys) and buy a stereo system for the TV before higher rents and babies claim all our monies.

    But in the past year we've bought pretty much most of what we'd like and most of it should last a good while! I have a really nice dining set.
