Hey kids the weird dude that wants a long stick that vibrates in his mouth is back. Meh I have anxiously been awaiting for you to post a toothbrush for sale again. I will post this everyday until you finally sell another one again.
@RiotDemon you’re one of my favorite people RiotDemon and you’re also the reason I come back hoping you grace my comments with your comments so we can go around commenting and commenting into a blissfullymeh mehful? existence
@reclaimercube@RiotDemon I bought the Pursonic and it’s been great. No issues at all. I love the feature where it pauses every 30 seconds so I know to switch for each quadrant of my mouth. Has definitely made me a better brusher. And the little UV light storage space is neato.
@Mac454@reclaimercube I got one from MorningSave, and then they had it on Meh like a week later, which pissed me off. It is a great toothbrush, but I just don’t feel like 30 seconds is long enough for each quadrant and end up restarting it at least once or twice every time.
@aetris One time through with the toothbrush thing and I had had my fill. I was going to launch a counter operation to complain about the lack of orange Mentos but if you wrestle in the mud, you’re going to get dirty. Either or both of those things are really stupid to beg for.
The refrigerated batteries though, those make sense.
What about the (insert item here) makes really shitty margaritas thing? That still seems to have some legs on it.
I bought one last time. Pretty happy with it for $30. Took it around Italy for 16 days. Very lightweight. Didn’t use it as a backpack much. The ‘dolly’ part is a little flimsy, in the sense that if you don’t have the weight at the bottom of the bag, it buckled at the hinge and would tip over… There are a lot of zippers, though. Internal pockets I didn’t even know were there until half through my trip.
Is a zipper really worth $9. If the extra access helps your folded clothes stay folded, keeps the toiletry bag within easy reach, enables weight distribution, and the dress slide off easier, then it is worth it.
I think I’m about done with meh.com. Pretty much everything on here is garbage nowadays and the vulgarity is just low class, unintelligent, and unprofessional. I know, it’s been here all along, but since the products are typically trash and the deals are easily passed up, I guess I’m done here. You won’t miss me, but good bye.
For those wondering: The general allowed dimensions are, from Consumer Reports, “22 inches high x 9 inches deep x 14 inches wide—these are external dimensions, including wheels and the handle. A few U.S. airlines are more generous with their carry-on size allowance, but some also impose weight restrictions and/or fees for carry-on baggage.”
This bag is listed as approximately 24 x 10 x 12 inches, so it is definitely in that gray area.
@aetris If your carry-on seems large, they’ll have you fit it in the frame that’s by the gate. “Fit” means that it stays within the frame on its own and doesn’t bulge outside of it. For a duffle bag this size to not bulge outside the frame, it needs to be about 25% under-full (that is, don’t pack to the long edges by couple of inches on each side and don’t pack fully high because stuff can slump and go down into the empty space, making it too long again). Stuff will slide around so using bags or cubes to hold shape is a good idea if you care about organization. If you have to manipulate it beyond a quick adjustment, they will say it’s too big, even if it could fit but you’re just crap at putting it in quickly.
@aetris They really don’t do it every time, but I don’t travel enough these days to say how often to expect it. I just know that I like to get there early and sit near the gate, so I sometimes see agents make people check their size. Sometimes they don’t do it at all, but sometimes there’s actually a line to check size. It does seem almost random whether they do it or not - maybe it depends on time or weight or capacity (some small planes want everything even close to not fitting in cargo for example). I’ve also flown where a checked carry on (one that’s obviously a carry-on kind of bag but doesn’t fit in the frame) cost like a regular checked bag, where it was an additional but different charge (long time ago here), and where it was free. I don’t know if this is a variance in different company policies or what. It’s easier just to make sure it fits the frame and not worry about it.
@ciabelle Hey, I know that lake! It’s Lonesome Lake in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It got that name because it’s only accessible by hiking up to it. It’s a nice, easy hike for an able bodied person.
I got the two-zipper model last time around. It’s great to get all of the weight to one end by loading vertically, and then unload with the bag lying along the long axis, where you can see and access everything without having to dig. Took a 5-day trip to NYC, and the buckle on the strap holding the bag to the platform gave out on day 3. Fixed with a few zip ties. Don’t pull up too quickly on the handle, or it will pop right out (Goes back in easily). It’s great that it’s so light.
I’m very tempted as I travel for work and I like cheap luggage so I buy a lot but I either use a european size carry on or check a big 26 or 30 inch bag. This size is the one you bring to the gate and then gate check for free (on most airlines). I have a a trip to dallas at short notice on Sunday so the tickets were expensive and to keep it under the customers naughty price I had to fly the new economy class on AA. They just started allowing a carry on for that class and this is the bag they would charge you for at the gate.
