    Just like the title says, what was the most interesting present you got this year for xmas, good or bad.

    I'll start off, my sister brought me back an authentic aboriginal didgeridoo from australia. Now when the trails are too wet to ride I can learn how to play it!

    they arent hard to walk in at all, in fact once you get a set you will wear them all the time and keep the wheels close by. they are just like a pair of skate shoes or platform freindly downhil shoes. i wear them most of the time and have the wheels in the cup holder of the truck. whenever i am somewhere where i can use them i snap them in and hit it, wal mart, home depot, grocery store, or if i have to park far away.

    i love em. plus my daughter thinks i am pretty cool because she has someone to heely with.

    You're fvcking kidding, right?

    I have to remind myself that clotheslining one of those little inconsiderate sh!ts on wheels will probably get me arrested if I get caught.

    An adult would make it just that more tempting.

    A bottle of Jim Beam, it was my only present.

    I did buy myself a blade cx2 remote control helicopter to play with while drinking bourbon.

    Just carry around some fine gravel to throw on the ground in front of them. I'm sure those little wheels will come to a screeching halt when they hit a little stone.

    Tonight I will be smoking a Cohiba that I received as a secret santa gift, the note attached said it was rolled between the thighs of 17 virgins.

    Very uncommon pose for a grey. Most of the ones I' met/ owned are back sleepers. I think it has to do with living in a warm climate.

    My best present - four words:
    Remote Control Lego Bulldozer

    Really its for the boy, but at 2 months he falls a bit outside the target age range of 11-16 years.

    That is a possibility. It came with a cool 3 flame butane lighter that looks fairly sinister and sounds like a mini jet engine.

    Yeah I had some when I was 10. But while my friends and I were saving up for them we made our own soaps. Take a bunch of soap from the bathroom in a paper towel and soap up the rail, the teachers didn't like our idea.

    Copy that one.

    It's been 113 or more for the last week. I don't think our boy has moved from infront of the a/c. Probably should check him to see if he's alive.

    I just watched one of the Soap Shoes videos. It makes me proud to say I never owned a pair of them. Good lord those kids are strange.

    It's sorta like a catapult. Sadly it's not full sized but I bet it could chuck a beer.. or at least a shot glass.

    I got money towards my new car for x-mas/b-day and my brother got me a GPS.

    First time is ~3 years I've got anything during the holiday season and I am super pumped about it.

    is it a fixed arm or floating arm treb? I had to build one in high school for physics class... went with the floating arm because they perform better. it was more complicated to build but was super cool.

    It is fixed and I believe it is this kit. Floating arm sounds interesting.

    floating arm trebs are where its at. I'll see if I can dig up pics of mine, but I doubt it. Do some google. Its really a straightforward idea... the main pivot axis of the arm is on wheels and slides along a track, while the weighted portion slides along a fixed vertical track. This way when the weight drops, the main pivot axis is yanked forward, giving much more horizontal acceleration.
