    Your dumbest purchase.

    What's the dumbest thing you've ever bought? The
    thing that made you regret your decision as soon
    as you took it out of the box; or even as soon
    as you took your money out of your wallet?

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    A car.... definately a particular Talbot Sunbeam I bought when I was about 17/18.

    I went out in the evening to view it, when it was dark (not a good start), and paid about £500 for it. The radiator went in week 1, the engine died in week 2. Week 3 the engine was repaired (head gasket) and then blew again. Week 4 was the same as week 3. That was the end of that 500 quid.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.

    See, you and Endo... Nobody in the US over the age of ten bought Spice Girls. This is why US music rules, even when we have to import good music from the rest of you dingo's
