Friday Five – Things to blow money on


money

Welcome to the Friday Five! Each week we help you get to know our writers a little better with the help of a top 5 list. This week’s category: Things you would blow money on(fictional or not).

It’s crazy how many things exist in movies and comics that aren’t, and probably never will be, real. It’s also incredibly depressing. I mean, I would sell my left leg for the chance to visit a real Jurassic Park! Just as I would probably lose my left leg if I were given a Light Saber. . . Regardless, this shit is cool! Let’s see what everyone picked.

Chris

  1. Hoverboard – I was never really into skateboarding, but who doesn’t want to float!
  2. Lightsaber – It may be a little cliche, probably more so than the Hoverboard above, but it’s versatile. It slices, dices, it even juliennes fries, but never dulls!
  3. Nokia Morph – As long as it runs Android.
  4. Sonic Screwdriver – “Doesn’t kill, doesn’t wound, doesn’t maim. But I’ll tell you what it does do: It is very good at opening doors.”
  5. Web-Shooters – While it would be pretty damn hard to use them properly without the reflexes and what not of a spider they’d still be fun to play with. Well until you ran out of web-fluid. . .

Sonic Screwdriver

Pisko

  1. Surrogates (from the Bruce Willis movie of the same name)
  2. Light Cycle from Tron
  3. Bat Cave
  4. Super Painful Adamantium Bone Implants
  5. Popplers (from Futurama)

The Bat Cave

Vogel

Damn you Cobb, you stole all my ideas!

  1. Hoverboard – Back To The Future 2 – but not pink please.
  2. Lightsaber – Star Wars – If I still had to construct it myself, that’d be ok.
  3. Land Speeder – Star Wars Episode IV – The speeder bikes, not the convertible monstrosity Luke has on Tatooine.
  4. LucasArts – Just to get it running again
  5. X-Wing (as long as it comes with an R2 unit)- I know, Star Wars heavy. But this aircraft is good for transcontinental flight as well as space travel.
Hoverboard

Oh, you’re getting the pink one!

Drootin

  1. Portal Gun – Portals are fun
  2. Any Tediore gun from Borderlands 2 – I think its pretty cool to be able to throw your gun it explodes and a new one appears in your hands.
  3. Nuka-Cola Quantum – Its a glowing, slightly radioactive energy drink why wouldn’t I at least try it? I’d try it just for the novelty of it making my pee glow.
  4. Phoenix Down – Would be nice to have around should anything tragic happen to me or a loved one.
  5. “Pasiv” dream machine – I loved Inception and like the thought of being able to control your dreams.

Portal Gun

Audra

  1. Sonic Screwdriver with a Red Setting – it has to be able to work on wood. …if you know what I mean 😉
  2. Wizard Wand (real wand) – I like the idea of making things happen by simply saying or thinking them.
  3. One Ring to Rule Them All – nah mean?
  4. Fairy in a Jar – I would be a hell of a lot more spontaneous, that’s for sure.
  5. Purchasing Experience – if it was as easy as it is in video games I would have no need for these BS college courses.

The One Ring

Eric

  1. Jurassic Park – Dangerous Investment? Sure. Worth it? Hell yeah!
  2. Lightsaber – I can’t pass this up. I’ve wanted on since I was a kid.
  3. T.A.R.D.I.S. – I was going to go with an Animus, but why go the whole “dream” route when you can actually go anywhere, and see anything. Yeah. The dream baby!
  4. The Bat Cave – Somewhere to store all of my awesome tools of justice!
  5. Millennium Falcon – The T.A.R.D.I.S. is the most powerful ship in the universe. Never bring it into battle! The Millennium Falcon would act as my general transport.

lightsaber

Walnut

  1. The Barbie Dream House!
  2. Like, all of the ponies!
  3. A prince charming to save me from the highest tower in a castle guarded by a dragon!
  4. I suppose I’ll need a castle with a high tower. . .
  5. And a dragon to protect me from ne’er do wells, and all potential prince charmings.

My Little Pony

is not a boss.
