What is it Smithey? Since you know what it does, it must mean you've tested it, to form an informed point of view.

Well, if the water had no ions in it, I imagine it'd not be that bad? It reminded me, I have heard that it's the amount of amphere that makes electricity dangerous, not the voltage. But since voltage = resistance multiplied with current, you'd think that higher resistance would mean lower current and therefore less danger.
On the other hand I was told that it's actually the heath from the current when going through any resistance that makes electricity dangerous. But that means with no resistance, i.e. infinite current, you should be completely safe?

I am going to call Smithey on this one.

Problem is soap in the water. Soaps are salts, and salts consist of ions. If you use a bathtup, normally you will add soap to the water, or there might be residues of soap from previous uses.

Hey, there was nothing wrong with H4!
...

I mean...*evades pitchforks* It was the most innovative HoMM title, it was just innovative too late. H4 was brutally murdered, yet its mutilated corpse was 3000 times more fun than MM:H6

Two years ago I bought a BENQ Joybook.  There was no joy.  Within two months the hard drive had burnt out, so I got it fixed under warranty.  Then two months later the hard drive burnt out again.

So I threw the piece of snow out of the window.

Serves me right for going cheap

My brother got a free Android Tablet from work. IT's TERRIBLE.

A Coby Kyros. I think they only cost 100$. I can see why.

The screen is unresponsive and anything you do on it is slow. It also doesn't even have the real Android Market on it and it's a tablet using Android 2.3(something)

So creatures' look is the most important thing for you?

Anyway don't let us turn this into another "which heroes game?" thread Cause I have that tendency. H5 > H3> H6

I bought a faulty toaster back in - 94 , man was I pissed !  For days, weeks even months I was so pissed off about that purchace.
Then, in -07 ( Late -07 ) I finally made my peace with it, and now I am a changed man, living life to it's fullest.

After stepping on and breaking my $15 headphones that served me loyally for years, I bought a $50 pair at RadioShack. The stupid clunky sons of *****es couldn't properly adjust to my head size. They were made out of an inflexible plastic that could only be adjusted in length at the sides, so wearing them pressed uncomfortably against my skull.

This was several years ago around my sophomore year in college, during a time in my life where I was too economically lethargic to ever bother returning anything, and I ended up fixing the problem by breaking them in half and then putting them back together with construction sealant and duct tape. I ended up replacing them several months later anyway because I hated them.
