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>
