@mediocrebot Wait a minute! $26383/3224=$8 and change which means almost everyone went with a 30 pack, which means 3224x30 sleeves=96000+!!!! How many hundreds of thousands of these darn things did you guys buy!!!???
@JonT is it a "shit-ton" or "metric shit-ton". cause the metric system is dumb. or good, I can't remember. But I do know that good is dumb, and always loses, so either way, a "metric shit-ton" loses. My vote for the secret word is "whatever the word is for the 'absence of metric'".
@JonT If I knew you were giving out extra 10-packs, I would've spent the extra dollar and bought 20. That way, the extras would give me 30 overall, and I'd have spent $1 extra. Sounds like a win-win to me!
@axleman1011 From the item description: "We're going to take a bath on these just to get them out of our hair." Then somebody said 'bath' in reference to the item description and was informed it was a secret word and that they'd be receiving a bonus ten-pack. You know, to take a bath with.
@JonT come at me, bro. Swing first buddy, swing first!! Shit send me a crate of them, I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU! haha. And you know, whenever you are feeling super crazy that goat prize is still tugging at my heart strings. :)
Thanks, Meh! This East Coaster is happy she stayed up tonight to score a 30 pack, especially since I wasn't interested in the knives last night. I also clicked my Meh face for the 189th time tonight. I can't believe it's been close to 200 days since I started giving you all my money. :-)
Looks like I got passed over for the extras @JonT is passing out. I guess thirty is more than enough for me, anyway. This is a fun thread though. I don't think I've ever seen one get so many posts as quickly as this.
Well I just got a Venue 7840 and ordered the only case available for it on amazon to find it wont arrive for a month and I probably won't like it anyways. I really like the feel of it and don't want to use a case anyways, want a sleeve. But the Targus sleeve available has no pics so idk if it will suit my needs and be worth 30+
Then I see this. I figure if i order 30 maybe one of them will be of use for one of my various devices and perhaps one will even suit the Venue. I can even bring a box them to family gatherings to offer the extras out. It will be like a Meh santa of cases.
Now watch me cave and order that Targus before this package even arrives.
@communist I have had no issues with that, and infact found that more apps off amazons store support it than my nexus 4 or 7 2013, but its still 4.4, which sucks since it has 9gb of usable memory and I cant install apps to my 32gb sd card until its upgraded to 5.0. Screen is great and it runs nicely though (takes a second to wake though). Also @JonT Cool, more party to go around!
@ggomes and then, GOD F*CKING DAMNIT, I bought 10 more. Meh, just send me like a hundred and I swear I'll take 50 back to Brazil and make a parade of of fucking neoprene. Because fuck my money, that's why!
@theco2 Try decaf! Maybe the guy was on his way to Woot's warehouse got a call from Woot and "execute order 666" and the guy crashes the truck right in front of Mediocre Labs and dumps all that fine product in thier laps and goes on to collect the insurance on the missing shipment. The driver? Well, he's back working his UPS route.
I was tempted, if it wasn't clear in the past hints I donate/give away virtually all my Mehs to my employees or goodwill ( with exception of 2 of 4 rc helis, 1 of 3 comforters, and as of Friday my Dyson ) but this would be a stretch.
@JonT Wait, what?? While I appreciate your generosity, don't send me your crap to dispose of. Or cram into my already overflowing apartment full of crap I actually bought that I don't know what to do with LOL Meh damn! You guys must have like 5 million of these.
trusting-incredulous-flight for a 30 pack. I'm hoping I get a bunch of large ones so I have a place to store all my fucking PB n' J Spreaders. (Oddly enough, this was one of the top pictures on my order phrase image search.)
@lichme I got one in FUKU #2 and I tried to give it away and was unsuccessful. I still have it by the front door ready to give it away to the first person that comes to the house that has anything that will fit in it.
My dad gave me 3 laptop bags that will probably never get used while I'm bathing, much less carrying my computers. I'm pretty sure I don't need 30 more cases for the bathtub or shower or carrying my laptop around in. On the other hand, my dog did chew a small chunk out of the laptop bag I do use, so taking a bath with it is out of the question, unless I want the stuff inside to get wet. Meh!
my first Meh purchase. I think i'm going to put my iphone in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve in a sleeve
Hmmm...3 of the 30 packs. I think I have a death wish. Seriously...it's a good thing I do sell at flea markets...although it's usually used, vintage or antiques. Oh well, might as well throw something completely wild and interesting into the mix.
(yeah, I have to be beserk to buy that many cases...just can't wait to see what the package looks like when it arrives)
@j8048188 Yes you do! Gift them, give them away at work, sell them on ebay, craigslist, freecycle them. Feed them to your siblings. See how well they burn. Jump on them. Use them to go sledding. Decorate a tree with them.
I don't own a tablet, e-reader, or laptop. I don't know what I would do with them, but I strangely want some. Gf said she gives her dog a bath. I told her, "If the tub isn't full of water, it's a shower." "It would be weird to say I'm giving my dog a shower." So, I think the secret word should be shower.
This had to come up the week I'm moving and already having to confront the mounts of useless crap I've purchased from the Internet...and yet....I had to buy 30. Never have I felt such simultaneous anticipation and regret.
@ModusPwnens Yeah, this. In three weeks, when this veritable clusterf*ck of neoprene is delivered... I'll feel like a ten year-old on Christmas morning, if only for a few fleeting seconds. That alone is worth eight dollarbucks.
I stay up in anticipation. The clock strikes 12. "Majsjxiodkandispqksnbeoo I MUST CHECK MEH!"
See deal, meh.
OK, in for 30. Why? Why not? I do not know. Is @JonT going to end up sending even more than the ridiculous 30 I ordered? If he does will I be making a neoprene suit coat? Will anything in the box be useful? Why am I asking so many questions? Do I blame @joelmw for all of my questions or absurd order? Should I ask another question?
Well, the zipper on my laptop sleeve is coming apart. I figure instead of going to Target and buying one laptop sleeve for $10, I might as well buy 30 sleeves from Meh for $8 and hope that at least one of those is a laptop sleeve.
Growing Plants: Hydroponic gardening Hydroponic and aerated gardening systems make use of small neoprene inserts to hold plants in place while propagating cuttings, or using net cups. Inserts are relatively small, ranging in size from 1.5" to 5". Neoprene is a good choice for supporting plants because of its flexibility and softness, allowing plants to be held securely in place without the chance of causing damage to the stem. Neoprene root covers also help block out light from entering the rooting chamber of hydroponic systems, allowing for better root growth and to help deter the growth of algae
Drum Pads: Musical instrument maker Yamaha uses neoprene. Neoprene is also used for drum practice pads.
Sport Braces: Sports Also in recent years, Jug, an after-market inline skate liner manufacturer, have incorporated neoprene into the construction of some of their more popular product-lines, citing that neoprene adds reinforcement (ankle support) and guards against abrasions as few materials do. As a simple matter of durability and product lifespan, liners constructed with neoprene additives are typically more expensive than those that are not.
In the equestrian world, it is used in cinches, saddle pads, bareback pads, and many other applications in all disciplines.
It is often used in Airsoft as a protective garment, as it is thin enough to feel the hit, but thick enough to reduce the impact velocity, thus avoiding breakage of the skin by the pellet.
Training knives and swords are made of Neoprene for safe self-defense instructions, practice, sparring, and martial arts demonstrations.
Used in powerlifting and Olympic lifting. Commonly used are rehband 7mm knee and elbow sleeves. Also they are acceptable support in most powerlifting or strongman federations.
Jacking up your house: Neoprene is used as a load bearing base, usually between two prefabricated reinforced concrete elements or steel plates as well to evenly guide tension from one element to another
@theco2@narfcake I considered it. But I already got one of those "Why are you buying a bunch of crap we don't need? I would tell you not to buy it but I don't want to get in an argument about something so stupid." looks just buying 1 of the 30 packs.
I have a feeling that the 5 trillion pieces of floating plastic trash in the ocean is now going to be 5.1 trillion pieces thanks to Meh...you anti-eco bastards!!!! What the @#%! am I gonna do with 30 neoprene cases!?????? You're geniuses!!!! It's like Homer when he bought the extended warranty - How can I lose???? A lot of people we know are going to be getting neoprene cases for and next Christmas too - excellent Secret Santa gifts...BOOM Christmas shopping done 354 days early! I love you meh! And it'll be priceless - they'll all look quizzically at each other when they notice they all have similar neoprene cases for their junk...fuck 'em, it's the thought that counts!
@JonT I don't know whether I love you or hate you. For now I will go with love, but the day I get them, it might be hate. I guess that all depends on whether or not every single one of them comes in handy.
I like hoarding. I like little bags to stick hoarded stuff in. I like neoprene. I like hoarding little neoprene bags of stuff. I like the number 8. I keep finding ways to justify buying meh stuff. I have NO need for any of this stuff... But free shipping. And now bags for all of my meh junk? Hopefully the 30 pack will contain at least one yellow case each for my laptop, nexus 7, and Droid. (or the Samsung galaxy s5 I'm lusting after but can't get without losing my unlimited data (thanks Verizon).... If i have the perfect case I'll NEED to buy a phone at full price, right?)
@chokcheesecake Pretty small - neoprene compresses very well :) The retail packaging is the only thing keeping meh from just rolling them all into a ball and covering in duct tape and writing your name/address on the outside. Would be great fun for the UPS guys :)
@klickster68 I would gladly accept a duct taped ball of neoprene. And if meh could put the bt headphones I bought a few days ago in said ball to save some space, even better! :) Actually, maybe they could use the cases as packaging for my next 30 purchases
@Gadgets Welcome to the fold! The first step is always the hesitant one...next thing you know you will be waiting for a table a table at T.G.I.Fridays and buy some cables, then pack of batteries, and before you know it you find yourself justifying a UV sanitizing bed vacuum to your husband on the porch while your mailman strolls down the street like your personal drug mule.
@JonT What's funny is that my wife has been desperately trying to purge stuff from our house (on advice of http://www.apartmenttherapy.com) and was on board for the 10 pack. I bought the 30 plus the 10 free. If you gave me any more than that- she might very well lose her mind.
My daughter made me buy 30. She's hoping there is a sleeve for her 17 inch laptop. 2 of them, would be nice, 1 for her, 1 for me. I actually have 2 of these for my iPad that I never use. I perfer my folding case with built in stand.
I tried looking for craft ideas to recycle these into though. The only thing I could think of was buy 90 and sew them together like a quilt to make a floor mat to lay on, do yoga, etc.
@Eddiegrau Sort of. You can keep things cold with it, and it does retain some warmth as it is used in wet suits. As for heating , it has started to appear in electrical applications but I am not sure of it's ability to be fried. I would try on the stove of someone you disliked to begin with to be sure.
In for 30. At my house, we've got a 10", two 11.6", a 14", and two 15" laptops, plus two 7" android tablets and a regular iPad. So some devices be getting new neoprene cases. Now to wait and see which ones get clothed and which ones stay naked...
I'm copying this and showing it to my economics teacher, tell her everything she has taught me was a lie. Then I'm going to show my math teacher and ask her to do the math. I have a busy day tomorrow, think I will go to bed now.
I got the thirty-bundle, but didn't get a chance to choose colors. I'd like one in black with little pink stars, one in blue and green plaid, one with puppies and kittens, one in dayglow green print, one in Georgia red and purple, . . .
I just figured out what happened. You guys went to CES and bought all the leftover swag. Vendors don't have to haul it home, Meh has several metric tons of Stuff, and we'll get it in installments. Amirite?
Big charity garage sale coming up in March. A huge stash of these might just raise some money for our resource center on ASD! In for the max! Sorry I missed out on the bath deal, though. Er, unless I DIDN'T miss out!
strange-foggy-dove -- Yup, that sounds like me. Looks as though I was lucky to get in for 30, bath or no bath. Wish I had seen that the 20 packs have more of the large ones. Ah, well. Our super garage sale for Autism Spectrum Disorders will certainly benefit from whatever I get. In fact, I'll be unloading tons of assorted crap to the sale. Maybe I'll finally be able to see the floor in the spare room. I think it's got carpet, but I'm not quite sure....
@JonT How about you send me 10 for free, so I can get them off your hands much quicker and easier. If not then you can tell me a secret word, and then I'll say it back to you so I can get them off your hands. Yeah???
