Received my new Ulefone ruggedised phone. :)

The helmet market is getting out of hand. 


AU 2017 Foray Helmet - Matte White/Silver | Torpedo7 NZ



I picked up a bike helmet from a vending machine in Melbourne a few years ago.
They had a state sponsored safety campaign at tge time.
Seems like every other normal helmet construction wise.
It cost $5 - so I bought 2.

For people not aware of this, there's a site called the Daily W T F specifically for posting stuff like this, I can't post a link because of the keyword filter but google the name, go to "Submit your W T F", select "Error'd" as the type, and post away.

I was going to say it's not that weird because you'd still save by buying it in a physical shop, then I clicked the link and read "online exclusive". W T F for sure.

I know there's some pretty weird things on Ali in general, typically in the plushies section, but this, whatever it is is pretty special:

 

 

 

 

It's a PCI/PCI-X, um, recycled capacitor dumping graveyard?
