    I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread about things you have, but don't want.

    - Crappy Telefónica Wireless Router
    - A couple of pairs of jeans
    - A Bulky VHS Player

    Those are just some of the things I can think of.

    I bought a joystick for playing X-Plane but found I preferred the mouse, it's 2nd hand value is next to nothing so it just takes up space on a shelf.

    For whatever reason things I dont wan't but have makes me a little depressed :eek: because it either means I wasted money or that somebody didn't know me enough bought me a present. If that makes much sense...

    Lamp from Ikea. Thought it would look nice next to my iMac. Things too bright.
    Unreal pack on Steam. Not played any of them for more than 10 minutes since I bought them last year.
    Digital SLR. Bought because our photography tutor said we had to use SLR, then backtracked and said it had to be film :rolleyes: £800 that too.
    Too many DVDs.

    A huge paper due in about 12 hours that I'm not sure I can actually finish.

    In the more material world I've got about a million pieces of paper (handouts from classes, old notes, tests, bills, receipts, printouts...) cluttering up my room that I really need to get rid of. And a pair of screwed up running shoes that squeak whenever I walk around.

    leaving for Marine Bootcamp lol And I am 100% positive there has been a thread like this before, but I did a search and couldnt find it. I have a sister that I do not want as well, shes been a total B lately, and i just really stopped talking to her and even acknowledging that she exists.

    Old CRT-style TV's with them silly DTV decoder boxes and ... :eek:

    Would've been easier to get a few DTV-ready flat-panels than fiddle with converters.

    I'm using the dimmest energy saving bulbs I can find but it's still bright enough to be a visual distraction. Does look nice though even when its turned off :eek:

    Well... a film SLR is typically referred to as such, while the digital version is considered a DSLR. Are you sure your tutor backtracked?

    Be careful with that... you could give it to other people.

    At first he said we needed SLR's to learn how apertures and all that business. Later he said we needed film to learn the development process :rolleyes: meh. Not a big deal anyways I got a snazzy camera that has taken many pictures (iPhoto library at 30gb) so I can't really complain.

    US Customs won't allow for Canadian dog food to enter the states, so I wouldn't try my luck with multicolored cookies. Let's be law abiding, now.
