    from the eBay listing:

    "a subwoofer so powerful it could loosen fillings, shake out the colesteral from my arteries and generally make a lot of noise. It seemed to me that the Death Star, ignoring the weakness that ultimately lead to it's complete destruction, was a pretty good design... so I made my own (with a lot of help from my then housemate)."

    Hmmm...the copy and paste is strong in this one. At least he fixed a couple spelling/grammar errors.

    A subwoofer so powerful it could loosen fillings, shake out the cholesterol from arteries and generally make a lot of noise.

    Just like many of the chavs who drive past my office every day.
    I'm about 250 yards from the road, and mini-roundabout they have to stop at. There are doubled glazed windows, and insulated timber walls between too.
    Some of these chavs have bass so loud and powerful, it physically hurts even when sat at my desk, or is low enough to give people headaches, or pop ear drums like when leaving a tunnel.
    Deathstar has nothing on these people, if you can call them people anymore... Zombies probably covers it better, what with their pickled brains and all.

    "When Darth Vader decided to take over the universe, he decided he needed a really big gun.... a really very big gun indeed, a gun so big it could destroy an entire planet in a single shot. With this in mind he built the Death Star"
    According to the most recent episodes II and III, Darth Vader had nothing to do with the inception, design and initial construction of the Death Star. It was entire the purview of Palpatine.

    See, this is the first thing that women do when they get their hooks into you - make you get rid of something you put hundreds of hours and pounds into, just because "it won't fit into the apartment". It's not about that, it's about her controlling him with sex, just seeing how high she can make him jump.

    Next she's slowly going to start getting rid of his bachelor friends, the better to control him. This is why any reasonable man should steer clear of "modern" women. Start your own business, invest well, buy and build cool stuff, and always keep women at arm's length - lest you become a pussywhipped fool who replaces his brilliantly engineered subwoofers, motorcycle, and sports car with window treatments, no sex, and a minivan.

    Dumbass.

    And the prize for the day's most sexist remark by a bitter, lonely guy goes to...

    jlseagull!!

    Why don't we tell him what he's won?

    "jlseagull's won the right to remain bitter and lonely, as no self respecting female would want to date his misygonist ass!"

Those who can, do; those who can't, write. Those who can't write work for the Bell Labs Record.
