Have you ever bought something just because you thought it was cool?

I have a Zippo lighter sitting beside my laptop. I don't even smoke. It cost me $34 dollars. It's one of the Jack Daniel's one. I've used it maybe like.... five times all together. I just bought it because it looked cool.

What are your (possibly) useless items that you have wasted money to buy?

I wanna buy useless cool stuff all the time, I just don't have the money for it.
#3
Yeah I once bought a Zippo lighter, even though I don't smoke. And I once bought a torch too.

I've got tons of useless shit. Lots of pairs of glasses. Books I bought just because they look good on the shelf, DVDs too.

Mostly weaponry. I shall never need Sai or a sjambok, but god damn it I HAVE THEM! And love them.

Isn't the point of buying anything that isn't a necessity based off it's coolness? Or you belief in it being cool.

I don't buy anything i won't get use out of, which is weighed against it's cost. As in, would this amount warrant is usage?

There's nothing worse than buying something, then having no use for it. Especially if you then feel guilty about it.

Pretty much all my gaming systems and games. I must have one to 2 grand total invested in old-time video games that I haven't taken out from under my bed in years .

I too have a Zippo, despite not smoking. I like doing tricks with it.

What? Before I came into this thread, the first thing to come to my head was my Zippo as well. And it's next to my laptop too. Coincidences, huh?
#14
Power tools that I never use.

Useful for my job, in principal. But I never need them.

A 2 dollar zippo does the same thing as a 30 dollar one

Oh and board games. I think this is kind of common. I have like...6 versions of monopoly and no one else likes it.

An A grade Zippo is far superior to a $2 one, for obvious reasons.

They'll last 100 years. As opposed to minutes.

I need a Zippo. Those cheap Bic lighters just don't do it when you want to light something on fire on a less than completely ****ing still day.

Glass, ceramic, or brass?



Plastic and no I meant like a children's slide like, with a little ladder and whatnot.

Completely useless.


I kick it every time I see it just to spite it. Sometimes I wish were sentient just so I can tell it how much I hate it. Unfortunately for me it's inanimate so it will never truly know how much I hate it.

I bought an expensive, but rather tasteful coat that I've only worn once out of the house.

It's just so out of character for me to be wearing expensive, stylish clothes. I'm a plain white/black t-shirt and jeans kind of guy.

Oh! That reminds me as I also bought a big, expensive leather coat. Wore it for like a month, and it has been sitting in my closet for the last two years.

What? I've smoked weed with a bic in a snowstorm. It was a little bit difficult but not enough to justify the price gap

Jack, double posting can get you a warning. If you hit the edit button on your post, then delete the duplicated one, you'll avoid it.
