that design...is actually dope.
It is.

I wonder if they're ballsing it and going for online delivery of all games. If they don't have huge AAA downloads to worry about, that might actually work.

Probably just vaporware, sadly.

I have found as close to a perfect for us new house floorplan as I've ever seen but it needs to be put in the dryer on high and shrunk about 15-20%. Everything is just a hair too big creating an overall thing that is more house than I want but damn the floorplan is awesome.

You can get that at a fraction of the price.

Where's the additional value that justifies the difference? It's not like they'll customize it with your family crest or anything.

Just design. The one you linked is nice, but it is not that other one. I love design but I won't pay that much for it either.

I don't know why, but I want this. Not for $165, but I still want it. I wish I was getting married so I could put it on my registry and get judged for it.

All I can think of is drawbacks. Thin pancakes that aren't anything close to evenly done. The giant hassle of getting the batter exactly right to work with it - can't be too thick, can't be too thin. I'd want to do something like have it make the pattern, and then pour a bunch of batter around it so you actually get a real pancake with a design in it. Of course, I could do that with that, but pattern pancakes really aren't my thing anyway.

I'd always assumed that making pancakes into fun shapes was a tacit apology for failing to make waffles.

This is so pathetic, but we finally got a new microwave. I once had a beefy, if dated, uwave that the movers stole when I had to put my stuff into storage, fuckers. We've been using the one that came with the house and is probably as old ('91). Thing couldn't be more than 750W, didn't even have a turntable! Have been waiting to find a 1KW for under sixty bucks. Today I learned about 'surplus stores'. Scored an 1100W [Tim Allen]Arh! Arh! Arh![/TA] Oaster.
