    Plenty of space for rocket motors to be attached - 3-4 on each side should be effective, fired in sequence.

    The device appears to add an extra dimenions of fanning to the cakes too :)

    Only £3 off the 600mm pictured (£22), or a fiver off the 900mm (£30) - so maybe not so much of a bargain, and may be cheaper elsewhere.
    Posting because the bloke building my fence says it's the best tool he's ever bought, and he's not even a proper midget.

    I've not tried it myself because of its low 150Kg weight limit, and I'm scared of heights.

    12% Off - 600mm Work Platform £22 @ Screwfix
    14% Off - 900mm Work Platform £30 @ Screwfix
    [EDIT: a quick google says the price is ok, so don't ban me for spamming non-bargains, pls.]

    Halfords ball bearing box. For your ball bearing collection?
    £50 in Clearance, a whopping £90 off so I thought I'd post it, despite not having any balls of my own.

    Don't know owt about it but I reckon one or two of you have cars and or tools and might fancy it.
    There are other offers on the same page but I think the best bargains are this ^ or the black trolley type for £165, down from £450.
    Again, I know nowt and doubt it's worth four-fiddy but that's what bargains are all about innit.

    AGAIN with the non-bargains, but I had to share this:

    For those of you that have adopted the patented Jinn Kyja Fuse Finder (ie post-it notes) technique, we have a GIANT announcement to make:
    Er, Giant Post-it Notes, Sainsbury's £2 for a hunnerd. (2p each, free collection in person)

    [​IMG]

    TNT Tiny Fount for scale. I decided not to waste a whole 2p drawing the arrow on, just use your imagination, it's free.
    Yes, there is a choice of colours and yes, I did choose pink on porpoise.
    [Please Note: Battery killed my flash so the colours are fecked, they're the classic Easy-Find/Hot/Flourescent/Day-Glo pink, not pastel-ish pink IRL. And the background is actually purple.]

    Purple feckin carpet...wtf, just reminds me of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

    Nice joke though, I do like how you made the post it note look so big in comparison to the post it note, we are not stupid enough to fall for your Absurd windups, you should find something better to do with your time instead of wasting OUR TIME.

    I ALSO CANNOT BELIEVE THAT YOU THINK THE POST IT THING WAS YOUR IDEA, NEXT THING YOU WILL BE CLAIMING THE INVENTION OF fireworks and/or chocolate dildos!!!

    "The PATENTED Post-it Note Fuse Finder Technique was first used, to GREAT EFFECT, by The Mighty Atoms (Capt. J. Kyja) at the 2000+summat Galactic Competition...However, despite scoring highest in ALL categories they came last because of a stupid bloody Carpet Bomber that used up the entirety of their alloted time."

    Says that right there ^ on the internet, so IT must BE true.

    Please Note: You are free to use WHATEVER size Post-it Notes you like.
    BUT IF YOU RIP IT PARTWAY UP AND STICK THE FUSE OUT OF THE HOLE CREATED BETWEEN THE FLAPS - You MAY be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Which isn't very extent-y at all really.
    You MAY draw arrows or use a hole-punch to prepare the Post-It's beforehand. Only the PATENTED ripping action is protected by International Imaginary Law.

    AS FAR AS I AM AWARE Chocolate Dildos have NOT been invented yet - And I would know!

    Are there any post-it's that can only be stuck on the main fuse, and won't work on the reverse fuse?

  9. Jinn Kyja

    Jinn Kyja Super Moderator Competition Meet 2018 Champion

    No.
    The Fuse Finder Technique DOES have a 100% success rate (when they don't blow off) but it cannot distinguish between fuse types.
    There may be another method involving additional SMALLER, more ORANGEY Post-it Notes but I wouldn't have any idea if it's PATENTED or not.

    As far as chocolate dildo's are concerned, how does Mick Jaggar eating a mars bar which was 'in' Marianne Faithful count?

    It would depend if he/she PATENTED the technique.

    Half price Aeolian Harps

    [​IMG]

    Today I've seen them on Hotukdeals, but marked as a "Compact Rotary Dryer"...fair enough, philistines...
    But the reason I'm posting is the retailer - CURRYS PC-WORLD.

    DON'T BUY ONE! The reviews for off-use (never mind musicality) are rubbish...But am I missing something else here?
    The reviews say it doesn't even turn in the wind, so I doubt it has ANY tech beyond plaggy coated string - so why are PC PLOPPING WORLD selling it?
    All I can think is, they got a load cheap when Tesco Online Direct shut and keep them in just for poor people with broken dryers popping in for prices on a new one, I dunno, I've already thought waaaaay too much about this...

    That would definetly be worth a try, but i'd leave that kind of decision making to the experts.
  21. Jinn Kyja

    Jinn Kyja Super Moderator Competition Meet 2018 Champion

    Not convinced...
    and HALF my motors were facing the right way, as were ALL the fountains and at least a few of the cakes.

    Mostly right. You couldn't ask for much more.

    I remember a night in a hotel with a certain person and the horror and chaos caused by a single chunk of Dairy Milk popped somewhere Cadburys never intended it to go.
    HSE said the only known method of containment is marshmallows on sticks.

    Dear Santa:

    [​IMG]

    Might not be a bargain but the end time being midnight on a Mon is bound to help.
    Both games, it's even got the Big Book (and a bonus strat guide) and even more spectacularly - the handle on the carry case hasn't snapped like 99% of them did.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Steel-Battalion-for-Xbox-with-Controller-Blue-Button-Version-Complete-CIB/333122634230?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

    The second game is online only and the official servers shut some years ago, but I've heard some guys over on Reddit have got online worked out and they hook up weekly.
    It's a 2nd Gen with the blue buttons but that doesn't matter, I've already got a green one, lol.
    And two blue ones, actually. Hmmm.
    Do I even need this?
    Ah, but it MIGHT be a bargain!?


    Yes, I'm bored.
    Sorry.
    I don't even know what I'm doing up at this time of day tbh, it's bloody ridiculous.

    [EDIT] And some pudding has bumped the price up £2o in the past hour, I might stop posting these non-bargains publicly lol
    Do you not know about sniping, man?!
