All my adult toys cost way more than than. Not only the initial cost but you also have to factor in usage and upkeep.

Makes sense. Guess it depends on the kind of toy. Upkeep.... yeah, not the best part

Makes you wonder what the upkeep on the Marmaduke Industries Anal Obliterator Performance Turbo XL Founders Edition is like. :lol:

Oh wow!!! Missed that post.
Marmaduke, have you started production yet?

Upkeep of the product itself it’s relatively inexpensive. We forecast that we will be able to provide on-site servicing and maintenance for the cooling system, and that it should be less than £300 for the first service after 1500 operating hours. The motor we forecast being able to warranty for 100,000 running hours, the high-speed ceramic bearings will be state-of-the-art and all-but frictionless. It’s really a very sensible investment when you start looking at it as a long-term prospect.

The manufacturer reminds all prospective buyers that the Anal Obliterator Performance Turbo XL Founders Edition is sold as an industrial high-frequency linear oscillator, and as such is supplied without attachments and is intended for adaptation to operating purpose by the consigner at the point of delivery. The manufacturer takes no responsibility for the performance of any such attachments affixed to the device in order for it to undertake its intended function. Customers are reminded that the forces applied by the device under full-load operation are significant, consideration should be given to the friction, gravitational and rotational inertia exerted at the point of contact with third-party accessories, along with the kinetic energy exerted through the accessory upon objects. Care should be taken to ensure personal protective equipment is used. Operation is not advised without adequate risk assessment. Supervision is recommended. The device is not to be used under the influence of alcohol, stimulants or sedatives or any description.

Production is scheduled to commence in Q2/Q3, subject to consumer demand.

Cool. Looking forward to the customer reviews....

What’s the device?

A Garmin eTrex 10 handheld GNSS receiver (which I see has gone up for £83 to £90 now on Amazon). I can upload GPX waypoints to it to follow when I'm hillwalking and it can log my GPS tracks and upload to my favourite app Fog of World. It should have much better reception than my iPhone X, which is really shitty (as are most recent smartphones). Plus it's waterproof, which after my recent drenched hillwalk proves, is very important for outdoor activities here in Scotland. :lol:

When is your next hillwalking adventure

1st of March is the next Gay Outdoor Club event in Scotland, starting in the outskirts of Edinburgh. Not much of a hill walk, it'll be mainly walking along the Water of Leith on the outskirts of Edinburgh and I believe maybe a couple of the Pentland Hills.

René's sister Denise may be visiting us in March and I'll be wanting to take her up a Munro in the Highlands.

Well, no changing my mind now. As of yesterday 5PM was the deadline to withdraw my acceptance of "Early Career Termination". Now I wait to be notified if I'm "accepted" which I'll be notified by mid February. Really more a formality at this point. March 20th is going to come at me like a freight train once I hear officially.

The craic on site this week was top tier, gourmet banter. Unfortunately, all context dependant and/or way too un-PC to share.

Too un-PC for this forum. Can you even imagine... :P

I work with a lot of Eastern Europeans and Spaniards (Spain had a construction boom and trained loads of archaeologists, before the boom promptly ended and they were all left unemployed. A lot of them came to Britain to work). To make a crude generalisation, they are not particularly afraid to be indelicate with their chat. Factions have formed. The truce with the Eastern Europeans (thieving bastards) still holds strong, but the jocks (sheep fuckers) are at their wits end with those lazy bloody spics and their fucking hour long siestas. Threats of deportation were issued.

And don't even get me started on those sassenach wankers. We'll deport them, too, when we get independence.

That kind of un-pc. I must here emphasise that we're all mates. :P

But the northern English are our kith and kin. They, too, are aficionados of the pie. We'll take it all up to the Humber.

There's no way in hell that we're taking the Cornish, Celtic credentials or no. :P

Have you seen some of the street interviews with Newcastle and Sunderland denizens regarding Brexit? Do we really want any of that?

Maybe Kingston upon Hull could be an exclave, though. They're alright.

Maybe the ideal scenario would be to end up with a United Republic of Scotland, Wales and Northern England. :P

I get my Brexit related vox pop exclusively from the BBC website, when they open up the story to comments.

It is wild.

I is indeed. I'm between a site in St. Andrews (multi-period, mostly Mid-Late Bronze Age, lots of so-called ring ditches and some cist burials) and the office (I'm also an artefact illustrator). Pay is bad, but I actually love my job.

My stitched biopsy seems to be healing up perfectly fine, having removed the original dressing and washed it. Not even a scab or redness or anything.

Just calculated that René and I generate only about 20 litres of trash a week on average. The rest goes into recycling or compost.

You could be 100% recycled if you stopped urinating in the trash can.
