Barska Metal Detector

  • You know those weirdos who scour the beach at 6am looking for lost doubloons? You could be one of those weirdos
  • “Discriminate between different metals by adjusting the spectral response of the search coil with a dial located on the control box” is a phrase you could soon understand
  • We bet that odd cousin of yours would love it
  • If you haven’t seen the BBC show Detectorists we strongly recommend it
  • Model: BE11638 (Fitting that this product would be easy to find by searching with this)

Hey, @sam, I had an idea for the metal detector writeup. You can talk about how great Detectorists is.
sam
*are
dave
??
sam
the plural of “detector” is “detectors.” sorry, ur not a writer. can’t expect u 2 kno these things
dave
No, Detectorists. The BBC show.
sam
haven’t seen. whats it about?
dave
It might be my favorite show. It’s about a bunch of friends who are really into metal detecting.
sam
so it’s like Cops for those weird dudes on the beach?
dave
No, it’s not real. It’s made up.
sam
all reality TV is these days
dave
It’s a fictional show. With actors.
sam
aha. why would that be good?
dave
Watching the show makes it seem like a metal detector hobby is a way to relax, get outside, be mildly social without having to talk much, and you have an infinitesimal chance you find gold.
sam
sounds like golf with a chance of precious metals
dave
Yep, with bonus of wearing “don’t talk to me” headphones
sam
so like playing Golden Tee while wearing headphones, with a chance of finding an actual golden tee
dave
Sure …
sam
or like playing putt-putt golf with a Japanese businessman where neither of you speak each other’s language and one of his diamond cufflinks looks like it could fall off at any moment.
dave
Umm
sam
or like visiting Japan to see your long-lost love and discovering that you speak fluent Japanese, suggesting you spent some time in the country before the government experimental weapons project that wiped your memory. and your bones are made out of a rare indestructible metal that you can detect with a metal detector.
dave
I think that metaphor may be getting a little far afield. Maybe just talk about Detectorists.
sam
The Detectorists
dave
No, it’s just “Detectorists,” no “The.”
sam
sure … you’re the boss
dave
Sigh. How much time do you need to write it?
sam
about 3 minutes
