    Most stupid purchase

    Robbed from the otter channel. Whats yours?
    Mine was my ticket for the Manchester derby back in 1989 when Man Shitty beat us 5-1 at Maine Rd. I was on an acid too. Oh, the other one - the missus.

    My first day ever in Bangkok, many years ago. I bought "Thai silk" shirts from Johnny, the award-winning Indian tailor for all of my family back home. It didn't take me long to realize that Thai silk is another term for 99.99% polyester and that there is an award-winning Hindu tailor named Johnny on every street corner. At least I didn't buy the big 500 baht rubies from the nice Thai man on Lamai beach.

    I bought a camcorder when I was in bangkok.
    I planned to make seedy movies of willing bar girlsw with it but then moved to Chiangmai and found a wife.
    Never really got used except to film my golf swing.
    Sold it pretty quickly.

    Money well spent, Jarvis, money well spent.

    As for me - wetsuits! I've bought a couple over the years. I decided on nice warm thick ones as you don't want to catch cold. In the 7 years I've had them, they haven't been used once, yet I've dived loads of times. And they're bloody expensive.
    The truth is out there, but then I'm stuck in here.

    I had almost forgotten that I had one of those when I was 12 years old.

    A bit busy at the moment.

    I once bought a kilo of bananas and i didn't eat them because i wasn't in a banana mood. They went brown and then i threw them out.
    Only time will tell wether buying a house here will prove to be even worse.
