I'd rather have to deal with nickels than having an iPhone. My solution would be to remove the tray from my optical drive so there is no front. Then I would just slide the optical drive out the front of my case so it hangs over a 10 gallon bucket. I would precede to buy something that mimics the action of one of these(but battery/USB powered) and have it set up to hit my enter key all day. If i set it to complete a rotation (up and down) once a second, that's around 3 dollars a minute which made $180 an hour which would make a $4320 dollars a day. After the first day I would have a few buckets worth of nickels so I would stop the pressing of the button. I would then go to separate banks to change the nickles into cash. I would then keep everything in cash while continuing my normal job. I would now be able to buy almost anything I wanted with the one stipulation that it would have to be able to bought in cash. If I ever ran out all I would need to do is find a bank which takes coins or a coinstar and start up my little money printer again. One of my first purchases would be to build a new computer that doesn't have the nickel problem.

EDIT: I would also buy copious amounts of lottery tickets to make my money more "legit" with investments and money laundering.

"Dipping birds" or more colloquially, "drinking birds". I found some on Amazon for reference.

There are entire websites/blogs devoted to science toys.

Sometimes something as simple as a pair of large superstrong magnets makes a lovely Christmas gift for a responsible boy or girl.

u/PingPing88 · 3 pointsr/Eve

Hmm, had no idea it was worth banning. Luckily my reddit account isn't linked to my Eve account!

I'll upgrade to one of these.

Rock it Homer Simpson style.

u/UpLateGiggling · 3 pointsr/funny

Think it's still missing a cartoon one of these...

u/dihydrogen_monoxide · 3 pointsr/Steam

Yep. I think I need one of these to handle the deleting for me.

u/TheArtofTheBoneSpur · 3 pointsr/politics

Your're welcome...

You might want to put a tiny thruster mod on his head to speed refreshes.

u/PoppinPills09 · 2 pointsr/techsupport

Couldn't you just buy something that moves around so that the sensor can detect movement?

Some kind of desk motion toy like this thing, this other thing, or that thing.

u/Jeff-Van-Gundy · 2 pointsr/personalfinance

fuck can't tell me THIS wasn't a great purchase

u/MADREX2000 · 2 pointsr/LV426

You could always get a couple of these water drinking birds ;) They can be seen in both Alien, and Alien: Isolation if you want an actual prop from the universe!

u/cajun_super_coder2 · 2 pointsr/AskProgramming

I have a stress ball that's fun to throw at the ceiling. I try to get it as close to the ceiling as possible without touching it. Also, Rubics cubes tend to wear down fast. Get a nice one like this: I have one at my home office and another at my office office. Also, a drinking bird is interesting for a few weeks:

u/mattmercer · 2 pointsr/perktv

Water bird


Duct tape

Problem solved.

u/snoo-snoo-train · 2 pointsr/swtor

Then set up one of these instead if you're so worried about getting banned:

Just checked out that mouse jiggler. TY! TIL. Ordering it now.

I'm a little embarresed to say, but I ordered this for her ystdy:

Proof of concept:

u/zer0guy · 1 pointr/amazone

Get a drinking bird

fun to watch my office was a little too cold, so I tapped it to the top of the monitor, and it generated enough heat to get it going pretty good.

Also check out lockpicking. it's fun to get some practice locks, and gives you something to do with your hands, and nothing is more satisfying then a lock popping open :D

u/purebredginger · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Classic office entertainment. Good luck on decorating =) I'm sure that will be fun, but a lot of work. Hopefully you don't have those people that make you take own stuff because it is "offensive" or "a distraction." FUNSUCKERS. Item

That's a lot of hardware to emulate a drinking bird.

u/24dogpile24 · 1 pointr/blackops3

Then people will just buy this. People will always look for a way to game the system.

u/lost-cat · 1 pointr/gaming

My diablo 3 afk machine.,

u/callmetmrw · 1 pointr/beermoney

HAHA this is where i got the idea! Theres one where he uses a orange peel to act as the touch sensor :D

Im not much of an engineer so i was gonna use this :

LMAO, whatever works right?

u/Mr_Assault_08 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Better yet add a cup of water and a drinking bird!

u/RobotDestruct · 1 pointr/RoastMe

Does your face just keep dipping forward from the weight of your nose?

famous drinking bird

u/Sage_of_spice · 1 pointr/gtaonline

But that's illegal.

However, there's nothing in the TOS that says that you can't let a tiny plastic bird play for you. ;)

u/hiking_dave · 1 pointr/incremental_games

Or put a small piece of hot dog on the end of one of these --

u/legayredditmodditors · 1 pointr/Political_Revolution

But what will we do with the newfound surplus of bobbing-ink-birds?

Put thermal paste on the tip. Set it up next to your phone and have it grind LvL games for you. Voila! Mbappe
