I have a suggestion

Postby AHTOXA » Tue Feb 19, 2008 4:32 pm

We should do a group buy on auto transmissions. None of us have that.



Really though, what can a group of people as diversed as we are have in common that could be bought as a group?

Suggestions:

1. A bunch of office supplies. We should have that shipped to one location as well.

2. Female escort services.

3. Pizza delivery.

4. Underwear.

5. Fuzzy slippers?

6. Cotton balls

7. Real estate.

8. Chunk of land on the moon?

9. Cyber space

10. Rosie O'donnel.

11. Pamela Anderson's former chest implants.

12. A piece pipe.

We can group buy bolt-on wings for our cars, if ricers don't care that they fit why should we?

And a car hauler to transport SSers to and from...

That's actually a helluva idea, seriously. That'd be the damned coolest thing... It'd be so awesome to be able to say "Welcome to the Standardshift garage!"

Plate frames? Custom SS.com ones.
Could be a cool club-ish thing.
