popespydie -- Why do we not have the hoverboard from Back to the Future 2 yet? I thought the mother's groups were holding on to it. Aren't there worse things they can mess with?
There are, but hoverboards seemed winnable, and winning small battles gives the fighter a sense of accomplishment.
I vividly remember a water toy from the 70's/80's that was a fat bowling-pin with plastic ropes coming out of its head that whipped around when the water turned on. Fortunately, it seems someone stepped in and put an end to that shit.
They were foolish enough to allow Heelys to slip through their frigid, hateful fingers and have regretted it ever since.
Forget hoverboards, I'm still waiting for the BttF2 "Fax Machines in Every Room" prophecy.
sirrani -- Is there anything better than funnel cake? Since we so recently covered this in a more general form, options will be limited to items available at carnivals, fairs and/or boardwalks:
Zeppoli. All the awesomeness of funnel cake in smaller, noncommittal doses.
Deep fried Oreos.
soarjubs -- Please explain the draw of sudoku.
Those equal-sided line arrangements are known as "squares".
You don't need to have a good vocabulary or even if you do, you don't have to know how to spell. And also unlike crosswords, it doesn't take a thinking human to create new puzzles, so there will never be a shortage of it.
It provides a reasonable distraction from the crippling rage one feels if they make the mistake of reading the "funnies".
It's the only feature in the newspaper that has managed to cash in on the Japanophelia craze.
eideteker -- I want to be rich and famous. Where can I get some cocaine?
Any number of bars on Capitol Hill.
Not in the back parking lot of the liquor store, that's for damn sure.
Considering their similar customer base (mostly white, affluent professionals), you'd think you would be able to get cocaine at Whole Foods.
pooplord -- Your fantasy band reunion tour?
Keraptis and the Hobgoblins.
The Melodic Casters.

My wallet and the items contained therein. what is the most expensive thing you have ever stolen from a person or a store. what phrase did you utter when you realized somene stole your shit? YTMND has some suggestions on what to say if someone stole your bike.
During my shoplifting phase which spanned 7th and 8th grades, I stole lots of makeup from the drugstore. While the most expensive single item was probably only abut $10, I'm sure I took a couple hundred dollars of stuff over the entire period.
A 7-11 lighter. Granted, not expensive to most, but considering it was the sole nonwearable possession of the hippie squatter I stole it from, it was expensive to him.
I can think of a few employers I've stolen plenty of work time from.
I can't really think of anything else. I'm not much of a stealer.
