    Twelve is just too many!

    Do you really have TWELVE things in one area that need to be plugged in? Are you mining bitcoins? Is that what's going on?


    I just have a 6-slot surge protector on 3 of the 4 walls of my room :bz

    I... might have. Why?

    edit: oh, saw your second post. I've never had them fuck me over, although the service is definitely not hassle free.

    What sort of hassle did you have???

    The monthly limit on transfers got in the way. Also, the whole PIN thing is a huge pain in the ass to remember. Although I was pretty proud when I managed to reconstruct my PIN, which I had forgotten, by going through the mental process I assumed I would have gone through to pick it in the first place.

    So you've never had any like, OH MY GOD GIVE ME MY MONEY BITCHES sort of issues or suspicious charges or been worried for your bank account safety, then? Well, that's good. I only want to use it to send someone in Russia 40$ so its like, not like I'll have problems with monthly limits. I was super worried because of all of the shit I found on google so you have relieved my worries!

    I recently sold two things on eBay and PayPal won't let me get the money for the second one. It says that as I "prove myself as an eBay seller" I'll be able to access funds sooner and should have the money within 21 days of the payment

    I mean, it's not like I've had this eBay account since 2002 (and PayPal since like, 2004), have sold many things with no problems, and both of the recent auctions were shipped, received, and good feedback left within 3 days of ending

    nope, I gotta wait 3 weeks for my money

    It's almost like I'm selling my shit because I need that money!

    the geniuses who built this place put the bed light way the fuck off from any outlet, and placed it so that an extension cord would have to either cross the floor or go along the wall, behind the closet and under the bed

    They were building it to be future-proof, obviously, since in the future, lamps will be wireless.

    well I had a six, but one of the plugs was broken so I couldn't have everything plugged in at once so I decided to just go for it

    tv, antenna box, wii, ps2, 360, clock, xbox, wireless headphones

    you can never have too many outlets

    Yeah but Heroes of Stalingrad comes out sooner...

    Then again I would probably shoot more team mates than enemies... Just like the first one.

    The beta is supposed to start monday for BF3 right?

    Hmm.. It does look totally badass.

    I mean, you don't get to shoot fascists but then again. Jets.

    EDIT: How'd you get Dead Space 2 for getting BF3 and is that deal still on anywhere?

    I kinda want to buy BF3, but I've already got my next three big game purchases planning out, and really should be saving money.

    Speaking of games I'm waiting on, I started looking at GW2 info after 2 months of not really following it. Goddamn, that game needs to come out now.

    guild wars 2 is still confusing me

    I know the first one was kind of like a cross between diablo and an mmo, but it was free to play

    not really sure how big the scope of this one is

    They don't last that long for me if they are strictly for work, but that's not really a fair comparison to normal everyday usage.

    The ones I wear normally pretty much last me forever, because I only wear them a few times a month.
