€15.62 for a pot noodle - what am I missing?

Not sure myself, but I *think* it's actually a model of a pot noodle that you put on display or something.
Speaking as a 45 year old who buys Transformers, I just don't get this!

I recently spent €35 on a model of Godzilla so I'm not judging anyone but really struggling to see the collectability of this.

Cup noodles are pretty iconic if you watch a lot of Japanese stuff. I know it's basiily a pot noodle but... yeah.

We need a new Objet d'art thread.

I actually have a custom made Judge Death that wouldn't be inappropriate here.

Recently have been looking for a way to get as much productive writing done away from the laptop a. Because of pesky distractions, we’ve all been there and b. Eye strain, been getting a bad case of it lately.
Looks to be word processors are making a comeback but at £700 a pop thats way off the table, so after a bit of research settled on a relic from my school days, the Alphasmart Neo 2. Like new cost me £60 (plus import grumble grumble) but for a 10+ year old piece of kit works a dream. Solid, solid investment.

I use a basic Text Pad program in full screen mode for early drafts and only move on to a full blown office program when it's more or less finished with only formatting left to do.

~~~^~~~~~~~


Rest in peace, Dave.

I, Cosh

Think somebody else on here already has this (maybe Hawkmumbler) but I treated myself to an early birthday present this year...



It's a ridiculously lush artefact...
