But even if the Sharper Image had sidestepped all of these bear traps, it was headed for trouble. Once, a visit to the store seemed like a trip to the future's very own showroom, or a museum exhibit called "What Is Next." Brushed aluminum was the surface of choice, back when only very cool stuff had a brushed aluminum surface. Staffers dressed in head-to-toe black and looked like they could serve drinks on the space station. Well, they looked like that in 1984. Today, they could be baristas.
[16:12] <@SpeedRcrX> LOL what
[16:12] <[gTV]Karasuma_Akane> Sharper Image just filed for Bankruptcy
[16:12] <@Dr. Xadium> I once bought a pair of "indestructible" glasses from them (made out of memory metal)
[16:13] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Did they break, X-chan??
[16:13] <@Dr. Xadium> Actually no! But the paint coating wore out on them. They weren't as flexible as the real Flexon glasses, however.
[16:14] <[gTV]Karasuma_Akane> It was the lawsuit over the Ionic Breeze air purifiers that scored the death knell.
[16:14] <@Dr. Xadium> I had an Ionic air purifier thing. It basically attracted all the dust in the room to one wall.
[16:14] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Wow X-chan spent a lot of money on gadgets...
[16:15] <@Dr. Xadium> It was a gloriously misspent youth.
[16:15] <@SpeedRcrX> Man the problem with Sharper image was that their s[BLEEP]t was overpriced, and today with the internet you can find it anywhere.
[16:17] <Crwn_FruT_Gamer> I wrote a love letter and people are mocking it
[16:18] <@SpeedRcrX> Huh what did you write
[16:18] <Crwn_FruT_Gamer> This
[16:18] <[gTV]Karasuma_Akane> ... You are one sad individual.
[16:18] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Hai...
[16:19] <Crwn_FruT_Gamer> NO ONE UNDERSTANDS ME!!!!

 Crwn_FruT_Gamer is away 

[16:20] <[gTV]Aya_Reiko> Boss-chan!! Boss-chan!! I found a neat video in the archives!!
[16:20] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Huh what is it!?!?
[16:20] <[gTV]Aya_Reiko> Penn and Jillette freaking out David Letterman-san!!!
[16:20] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Sugoi sugoi let me see!!
[16:21] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Never!!!
[16:21] <[gTV]Aya_Reiko> No way!!!

[16:21] <@SpeedRcrX> LOL "now available on videocassette"
[16:22] <// J_Daito //> I have a betamax
[16:22] <// J_Daito //> why is nothing ever released for my viewing platform of choice
[16:22] <@SpeedRcrX> Dude you need to upgrade
[16:22] <// J_Daito //> I am considering this "HD-DVD"
[16:22] <[gTV]Karasuma_Akane> There is no hope for you.
[16:24] <=^catablanca^=> Well I found out that Teller is making a Magic-filled version of MacBeth
[16:24] <@SpeedRcrX> Holy crap I need to fly to America for that
[16:25] <Mdm_Maestro> You can't, dear, you've spent the travel budget on reserving tickets for "Wrestle Malaria 24"
[16:25] <@SpeedRcrX> WRESTLE MANIA
[16:25] <Mdm_Maestro> Whatever, dear. I shall be at Universal Studios enjoying the rides.
[16:25] <=^catablanca^=> I heard there's a whacked out Kane Cosplayer over there
[16:26] <@SpeedRcrX> That would be Abyss from TNA
[16:26] <[gTV]Karasuma_Akane> Can we please not talk about the FAKE "sport" of Pro Wrestling please
[16:27] <@SpeedRcrX> GOD not you too Akane I thought you were COOL
[16:27] <[gTV]Karasuma_Akane> I'm a journalist. I report facts not fiction.
[16:29] <[gTV]Aya_Reiko> But what if you were reporting on a movie??
[16:29] <[gTV]Aya_Reiko> that's fiction??
[16:30] <[gTV]Karasuma_Akane> I would still report facts. e.g. "this movie is a piece of garbage spat out from the diseased rectum of the Hollywood s[BLEEP]t factory"
[16:32] <Mizunomics01> * stops by for a moment and reads the chat log *
[16:32] <@SpeedRcrX> Yo Ami-chan
[16:32] <Mizunomics01> Sharper Image is going out of business?!

 Mizunomics01 is away: Now where will I buy my spine-massaging infrared blenders?

[16:33] <@SpeedRcrX> kid you BUILD THAT S[BLEEP]T FOR FUN

Karasuma_Akane pasted:
Google has made an announcement that could help hundreds of homeless people in San Francisco get back on their feet. Every single homeless person in the city will be given a life-long phone number and voicemail.
[17:05] <@SpeedRcrX> AWESOME
[17:05] <[gTV]Karasuma_Akane> Yeah awesome.
[17:06] <[gTV]Karasuma_Akane> The homeless person get free voicemail. But how will you access it without a cellphone, a charger for that phone, a wall to plug the charger into and a house for that wall to go into?
[17:06] <@SpeedRcrX> You are a severe buzzkill, Karasuma Akane
[17:06] <[gTV]Karasuma_Akane>

Motoki is just depressed freak. And Luke didn't crawl into that thing himself, actually. If I remember right, Han Solo cut the creature open and stuck Luke in it while he built some sort of shelter, also, they were on the planet Hoth.

Karasuma's killjoy attitude is so awesome though XD
