How Ridiculous Were D-Batteries?



In the wake of all this hurricane talk, I thought about what I'd actually need in the event that I actually gave a shit.

With the news feeding us all of this "buy perishable items", batteries and flashlights bullshit I started to get a little concerned . If you offered me $1000 to tell you what the word perishable meant, I assure you I wouldn't have $1000 after my answer. And batteries..what the fuck do you need batteries for?! I'll tell you. The TV remote and that's it. You can't tell me there's a reasonable need for batteries these days. Unless we're talking JVC Boomboxes. Those monsters that Summer Sanders was giving away on "Figure It Out" ate some D-batteries aka. the forgotten battery size.

Obviously everyone has a box of 100 AAs in their house for no reason and "just in case" scenarios. Some lunatics also have AAAs packs lying around, but they're crazy. Pretty sure C-batteries were dangerous and recalled several times. And D batteries were probably the most effective, dangerous weapon to ever be deployed in my childhood. They were perfect throwing weight, hard as a rock, and were filled with acid. You can't name me a more potent weapon if you tried. To top it all off they were used in the best gadgets and toys when you were little and unsupervised. Straight ridiculous to the point that I forgot they ever existed.

Anywho, good luck surviving this weekend. If this was the last post I ever put up, we can all agree it was pretty wack. Grab a beer and fellas, go hunting for a girl named Irene. It'll make a fantastic story.

    A friend of mine down the hall shaved half his beard, and then his razor died. No one in our house had aaa batteries. Guys don't shave here. It was hilarious....
