Do you think anyone buys this kind of thing?
Have any of you bought anything like it?
Whats the daftest thing you've ever wasted your hard earned cash on?:confused:

Mmm. Looks like something Mrs Foxtrot keeps in her bedside table.














Her sunglasses case.

Hmmm. Can't decide between Skyhighblue and Glow in the dark.
Well at least security won't raise an eyebrow when scanning my case...:E

I actually know a real-life human been that has one of these things. (and He works for NATS! :eek: :\ ) Be afraid, be very afraid.....

Really? Somebody actually has one? Does it work? Did he buy it from the internet or from a shop?

But come on y'all, what's the stupidest thing you've ever bought? I want to hear what Jerricho has to say on this matter!

I bought one. :\

We do this Kris Kringle thing at work here between the Brits at Xmas where we buy each other stupid cheap presents. One of them got the banana guard, the other got a USB coffee cup warmer.... :}

the other got a USB coffee cup warmer.... Whats wrong with using that cupholder that slides out of the computer when you press the little button??

SMHC But you'd think that by now they'd make them waterproof. I'm getting fed up of paying 250 per week for someone to dry my computer out

BananaGuard is a patented technology, I kid you not! They invented the concept, and are now seeking to monopolise the worldwide market for Banana-protection hardware.

There's an article about it on this site IIRC:Patently Absurd (http://www.1do3.com/uk/page.php?x=22,911,4337)

The Banana Protector may be innovative, but they've got a long way to go before they can hold a candle to Arthur Paul Pedrick...

Arthur Paul Pedrick...

The man's a GENIUS!

Heyyyy, we don't allow real life humans in NATS. That's why Jerricho had to leave us (or was it to escape his MIL ??). :D

Now if we knew where your real life human worked, the piss taking they would receive would be horrendous. It's a dog eat dog world amongst 'tin pushers' :cool:

BananaGuard is a patented technology,

Maybe The London Rubber Co. could sue them for patent infringement?


I'vee been keeping mine protected for years

If you leave a banana alone for long enough, it turns black.

Bananas are still the most revolting fruit ever invented :eek: :ooh: :yuk:

Yeah, who has the patent for the Banana anyway?? :}

there's no black banana ! A cunning intervention of aviation follows.

The only curved shaped thing that would suit The NR Fairy
Would be the checkered plastic grip on the cyclic of a B3 206 JetRanger Helicopter.
