Another tattoo so that my arms are pretty much covered now. I couldn't stand not being symmetrical.

I finally quit smoking. It's been 2 weeks and I don't miss it at all. I vape now. I am glad I gave this a try. I didn't really expect this thing to help quitting smoking this fast and easy. But it literally is tastier, cheaper, and healthier.

For a day or two I suffered a nicotine overdose(damn headache kinda like hangover) because I was constantly vaping due to delicious juice taste but now I bought low (& none) nicotine juice, everything's swell. I recommend all smokers to give e cig at least a try. Has a learning curve but will save you tons of money, health, and stuff.

I got the latest version(2) of what this guy's using. It was only $60 delivered(dope deal) and battery lasts for longer than 4 days at my use(turn it off when not in use and it will prolly last much longer).

Not true. Smoking kills your sex drive. Real men vape, not smoke.

I started smoking when I was 17, found it boring after a couple of packs and just quit. Didn't find it addictive or shit. Only gave me some unnecessary headaches.

NovU, you should start trying to quit. After a certain age, you won't just care. Kinda like thin guys who get fat.

Got a Chromecast the other week, pretty awesome, at least for Netflix. Wife and toddler lose the TV remotes a lot, so the auto switch to the right HDMI and using a tablet as the remote works real noice.


Also preordered the new Infamous for that $60 get $10 deal, and picked up that LEGO Marvel game for like $6 through the Gamefly sales, which is pretty awesome.


We also bought a lot of baby clothes, because she's growing fast and when the first born was this big, it was spring not winter. So yea, gadgets, vidya games, and baby stuff.

Used off ebay for less than $100. Trashed and broken handheld coming my way. Got a 16gig card from Walmart coming in a week or two, so until that comes it will be 100% for PS4 remote play, then PS+ game insanity.

Cool purchase there, Jao. I haven't shopped from Ebay forever now. They started charging shits like international whatever they call. Then there're shippers that charges you custom brokerage fee. It's too much hassle.

Anyway, I just got this literally 20 minutes ago.

I know what you folks are thinking but I had no reason not to bring out Nets-ness in my heart at $10 tax in. If you are Canadian, I suggest you run to the Adidas store right now. Tag said 29.99 but it is actually 14.99 and then there's 40% sale going on. Limited choice in hats but the Nets one was pretty nice.

yep, well I am learning my lesson with that 98% rating. The listing said $13 expedited shipping and an estimated delivery date of Tuesday-Thursday (today). Won it on Saturday.

They shipped it Monday, UPS ground to USPS delivery (which is the absolute longest way you can ship something). I paid the extra $3.50 to UPS to just give it to me this coming Monday instead of giving it to USPS who tends to ship packages from in-town, to the sorting centers all around New England before coming back to me.

I'm waiting to get it and check it before doing anything, but its probably going to be shit feedback unless the thing is mint. $5 priority flat rate box would have gotten it to me yesterday, but instead $13 has it coming 10 days after winning if it weren't for my extra UPS fee. Bleh.

Yeah, that's quite ordinary. You didn't notice any horror stories in the feedback?

TBH, the auction was ending in less than 5 minutes when I loaded up ebay. In that span I had to double check the bank account, check with the wife Image, make sure it was under used condition and not for parts, reverse Google search the images to make sure they were original and that the listing wasn't lying, and then actually log in before bidding. The shown % was enough for me.

Going through them now, they have had issues with double listing items, never shipping and such. But nothing mentioning shipping, and thousands of positives.

They should return you $8 of the shipping cost. Have you tried contacting them?

There were couple left in two styles at Langley location. Everything's 40% off so might not be a wasted trip even it's all gone. But my guess is they'll be still avail as the tag said 29.99 as employees were lazy to update it.

Btw, I'm thinking to go young and leave the sticker on. Is that being cool in today's standard?

Imma probably go to the Burnaby location, closer to my school or the Granville location if they have anything on sale too. What other stuff is on sale?

I don't understand the appeal of having a sticker on TBH. I guess it is a status symbol.
