OK, so in my free time I've found myself browsing reddit alot more, and easily one of the most fascinatingly funny sections of the site is the general "/r/AskReddit/" part. Its a fascinating place where you'll always find something either interesting to read about.
Whilst I was there today I found one thread called "The last thing you bought becomes illegal worldwide. What is it?"

Its a great thread, and the responses are fantastic and I recommend if you want a good laugh you go check it out. In the meantime, I thought I'd borrow/nick this hilarious thread concept and bring it over here to see what kind of response it gets.
So, what is the last thing you brought and how bad does the future look, now its been made illegal?

    This spells bad news for me. My last purchase was Dr. Pepper.
    A world without Dr. Pepper... I don't want to live in a world like that...

    I just bought some Gold in War Commander. I know a lot of people who wouldn't mind War Commander being illegal.

    Pretty sure that would just make illegal Gold in War Commander, not WC in an of itself Lomo.
    Also, please tell me you didn't actually buy Gold just for the sake of making that joke.

    What if the last thing I bought is already illegal? :smirk:

    BTW I spend a good amount of my time on that sub, and I find the 'Reddit Offline' app is perfect for these kind of text based posts.

    Technically the diet stuff was my last purchase. So I've no the option of drinking regular Dr. Pepper, or no Dr. Pepper at all.
    If minor differences like this weren't taken into account, then I've made the entire Dr. Pepper line-up illegal. Damnit!

    Not sure I want to ask what your last purchase may have been MX, lol. I'll do it regardless though, care to enlighten us as to what it was?
    To your question itself, since laws vary from country to country, all you may have done is extend the law around whatever your last purchase may have been. I would expect that something deemed illegal worldwide would be very difficult to get your hands on after that.

    Well I certainly wouldn't object to guns being made illegal in the world considering how some use them. AA batteries, kinda need those though, so I guess anyone if this kinda of situation happened alot of people would be fresh outta luck. Thanks MX, lol.

    /r/tifu - Today, I f*cked up: A sub-reddit dedicated to people telling sometimes strange, sometimes hilarious, sometimes off the wall stories that make you go "What the f*ck" about how they screwed something up during the day. (Sometimes used to tell stories about screw-ups from a few years ago as well.) Very curious sub-reddit, but worth a look if you feel up to read some stories.

    /r/pcmasterrace - PC Master Race: The glorious sub-reddit for the glorious gaming master race. Nah but seriously, its a cool sub-reddit that I like to browse every now and then to see whats up. Lots of awesome content down there, and its a remarkably well put together sub-reddit. Its very professional in some sense, like its presentation and so on.

    I think there was one or two others that I was recently browsing after coming across them from the TIFU sub-reddit but I forgot the names. I'll post em if I can remember them. What about you man, any sub-reddits you're a particular fan of.

    Ooops!! I meant to say gum!!  it's funny how one letter completely changes everything lol
    I wouldn't mind guns being made illegal, but they're one of the things that are still exist because we (humans) are terrible with each other.

    Indeed I do. How goes your search for a new laptop?
    Haven't found anything that fits my budget yet, but as a temporary solution, I got a tablet instead (Samsung Tab S2 for 210$).. good specs at this price.. and with Puffin browser, it's super smooth with flash games.
    I've used the older model (Tab 2 - 7 inches) for years and it's still going. good for reading and streaming movies. but for playing flash games (WC) it's not that good because of its low RAM and CPU power.. I only use it to farm rogues on RUBI or to spam missiles.

    Power consumption is a huge issue too. my laptop stays for about 1.5~2 hours (battery was replaced a year ago) the old tablet stays for about 7~9 hours while reading offline and listening to music, or enough to watch 2~3 movies back to back.. the new one has an AMOLED display that consumes battery like crazy!

    Some of my favorite subs are: 
    r/WhatIsThisThing where people try to find information about some odd thing they have in their house, or saw somewhere else, and you play Sherlock Holmes and try to find any piece of info\links about that thing. 

    r/ShowerThoughts simple, interesting, and an eye-opener.

    Indeed. I was a bit concerned to be honest when you said you brought a gun. I was wondering why you might need one, or if they would even be available where you are.

    I think I might have that same or a similar tablet myself. A few years ago I was on a family holiday in Spain, and at one point we paid a visit to Gibraltar. Whilst we were there I picked myself up a tablet from an electronics store. I use it alot, its a good tablet. I do a bunch of reading on it, as well as some light YouTube watching or research for PC parts.

    Sound like good sub-reddits, I'll have to remember to check em out. I've remembered another one Im also a fan of.
    /r/RoastMe/
    I've seen a few prominent YouTubers, such as Markiplier, Boogie2988 and Philip DeFranco do roasts inspired by, or in the case of Markiplier, directly in that sub-reddit, and they are ourstandingly funny to watch.
    Here are their roasts if your interested.

    I LOVE the creativity of their brutal roasts.. it's been a while since the last time I visited that sub, but I find them regularly posted as collections on imgur.
    Thanks for the youtube links BTW. I've seen Boogie's video before but not the other two.. also Markiplier's laugh is weird.  :#  lol

    + check out this sub for a good laugh: r/CrappyDesign.. you can switch off their pagestyle settings from the sidebar.

    Yeah, the creativity of some folk is outstanding. I think the "washed up" barb someone threw at Markiplier might have been one of my favourites from his roasts. And the one who wrote that they'd "rather f*ck Wade" as well lol. Bit of a shame how some of his fans didn't understand the point of a roast is meant to be comedic though. Or how some "roasters" went on boring rants in some sections.

    I think I heard of them before, possibly from a YouTube video. Might have been one by Matthew Santoro discussing odd communities online. I gotta say, I like how they managed to take bad design to a point where its hilariously funny, so well done to them for that. Its always cool whenever someone managed to pull of that balance of what some might call "its so bad its good."
