This is a question Drunk Shopping

When I've had a few, I buy CDs off eBay and Amazon. I've got four copies of The Bends by Radiohead now. Show us your drunk eBay wins.

Not drunk but I saw a guy using an infrared thermometer with a laser beam on it
and just had to have one. About thirteen quid off of Amazon, it's a great toy if you spend a lot of time alone.
My back wall is currently 20.5C, my ceiling is 21C, freezer -18C and my woodburner last night was 382C.
Every boy should have one.

If you had this and a laser rangefinder, you could find out just how far away from hot you were.

oh man ... you could spend literally hours testing the inverse square law of radiation

Want one. Must have one. What if it had a some sort of way of you naming your household objects,
send the results over wifi and then you could start a database of temperature. Fascinating to review on a quarterly basis with charts. I am in.

League tables of who has the hottest fire/oven/boiler/wife.
Already established the dog's cold nose theory is true, compared to its arse that is.

Point one at the other's laser to find out how hot the lasers really are!

You should try to find out the flight cabin temperature of every passing jet plane

Accurate aim could be a problem.
Tell you what, tie the laser thermometer to the face-end of a long, black-painted (so it doesn't reflect sunlight onto the thermometer) brush handle.

Try various points under its landing path to find the optimum location.

I got one fo £9 off eBay
I probably should've bought a more expensive one, the laser is a bit overspec so if I catch a reflection of it off a shiny surface it knackers my eyesight for about 10 minutes. Found that one out measuring the temperature of things inside a PC. I tend not to bother with the laser now.

You're right. not really needed but that's half the fun.

actually not, borrowed from work. But can't you see how awesome this would be next time you're drunk and on eBay?
