    Show us your impulse buy

    Came across this on e-bay by accident while looking for something else and on an impulse I had to own once again the exact same watch I had 1981



    It has a stopwatch with hundredths of seconds and it makes a little beep when you touch any button and it has a tiny light which I can't stop pressing under the covers when I am in bed.

    Had my fingering hovering over the buy button for a kayak this afternoon.

    Thought about for 10 seconds or so before deciding I would literally never use it.

    The kids are going on a school trip to a WW2 air raid shelter dressed as evacuees.

    I'd post a pic of my gf but I haven't made the final payments yet.

    She has tunnel experience if you need a guide out of Laos.

    Just don't tell the Feds. There was something I just can't put my finger on it.

    Bought one of these at the Thai Airforce Museum. Never plucked up enough courage to fly ( I mean BREAK it).



    Found an old "barn find" scooter I was going to restore so bought the book.



    Fortunately never bought the scooter.
    No green book.

    I bought a boat off Trademe several years ago.
    Impulse buy? Maybe not, more like far too many bourbons at 2 a.m idiot buy.

    A lemon. I fixed it up. Fibreglass patches all over the place and re-sold it: total profit $5, which didn't include factoring in my labour.

    After that, I decided I would try and live by the rule to never drink and online auction.

    I bought this icecream/frozen yoghurt machine all the way from the States with the grand idea of making my own ice cream.

    But then I realised I couldn't be arsed.

    It sat in the kitchen for six months, then I gave it to some bird who was into making her own non-dairy stuff.

    So basically I paid a shitload of money for some fucking brownie points and that was it.

    You're all pooves...

    I was ebaying for a Sony tablet, but it's blimeywell difficult to get anything to Korea at a reasonable price, so ended up buying this for the car (wife)...

    $300 delivered - I suspect, I should've got a $100 one instead.



    I was robbed...
    How do I post these pictures???
