Cheaper than dumping goo on your friends from a bridge (have you seen the price of goo these days?)…
Easier than drilling into huge ice blocks and racing them down hill (a highly likely thing for a bunch of slackers to do).
Will I get to the point soon? Hell yes, I’m talking about TECHNIPETS: Those little robot animal things that currently come with a McDonalds Happy Meal.
BUT… did you know that they also go off BEFORE your mobile phone rings or gets a message? That’s right… get one of these little things and you’ll always know when your phone is about to ring… how cool is that? I excitedly told my hairdresser this last night and he said: “You need to get out more.”
Anyway, if you get one, stay away from ‘Chee Chee’ the monkey… that little beggar’s screech becomes real annoying, real fast.
UPDATE 2011: 7 years later I stumble across one my Technipets in a box. Amazingly, it still works. I can only assume that it runs on some kind of bio or nuclear fuel cell.
Check out this video of the poky little pup looking just as healthy in 2011 as it did in 2004:
