*Disclaimer* Now it's my turn to nef ;) --

Anyway, back to the topic...So it's stupid -- I know, but how many of us really can't help themselves and pop those little plastic bubbles on a nice clean sheet of bubble wrap (or even the ones that come in some package you received)? Do you pop them, one at a time, or go for the multiple-burst-sound by squeezing the air out of those things?

Vote on the poll, and then you can go back into your cave. Thanks!
;)

oh yes, and how :) I'm afraid I'm sad enough that I had to choose the final option. I use my teeth, finger-nails, thumbs, feet, knees (you get the picture!!!). Flavoured bubble-wrap...now there's an idea :)

We put it on the floor and roll our chairs over it. Big machine-gun effect!

I prefer either the big ones or small.
Big cuz it makes a lot of noise, small cuz it sounds like popcorn popping :)

werk -- that virtual bubblewrap was awesome... though it lacked the 'hold' of real bubblewrap! ;)

[edit] now that i think of it... can you imagine -- in the future, when they 'ban' the use of plastics and all we can pop is something virtual? *shudder*

Yeah, it's not quite the same. Bubble wrap is just so much fun! :) My gf's parents own a company that manufactures packing materials (stop laughing) and she gave me a 2000 ft roll of the stuff for shipping stuff I sell/trade on the FS/T board. One night I came home drunk and popped at least half the roll. My roomates thought I was insane! :p

When I worked overnight at Target occasionally we'd get boxes packed with the serious bubble wrap... Not this weenie little 1/4" crap. We're talking 1" thick bubbles that make a VERY satisfactory POP! when punctured. Enter the WAVE. Work Assist VEhicle. Nice little tool that runs around on 4 wheels, & can lift a person & a rack up ~15 feet in the air. It's heavy as hell, of course. Moves pretty quick, too. You'd have to run to keep up with it on it's fast speed. So, what do we do? Lay out a nice track of bubble wrap, turn on the intercom, & treat the whole store to a professional level popping.

:D
