Whatever, just wash your hands.
Hands of Necromancy and Beacon Pines. I need to finish beating Freedom Planet 2 with all the characters and Monkey Island before I play them though.

I'm always amused by people selling used PC parts who are very specific about their reason for selling.

Solar powered (researched) multi-device charger and power bank. You shall not control me, energy companies!
I think I still have one of these somewhere; t'was a gift. Supposed to be pretty good, but it was made in China with instructions so terribly translated as to be completely in comprehensible. I didn't know how to work the damn thing, couldn't be bothered to look up instructions, so I slid it in a drawer somewhere years ago. Since digging through drawers is one of my least favorite things to do, it might as well not exist.

Ah shit yeah, quality of gifts are at the whims of the original buyer. You can't trust 'em, I say! Or indeed, even expect anything from them at all. But when they do try, it's all luck from there. Technology is often too expensive to go in uninformed. This device doesn't have any buttons, you just plug it in device, it charges. You plug it in powerbank, you automatically hoard succulent energy! Tho it won't power anything like consoles and TVs yet, so I am still mostly a slave to them pesky energy companies for now. šŸ˜”

Wait, it's probably weird to not say what the products were at all, so here be the officials...

I haven't read the instructions, but I can 100% guarantee you that a solar charger won't work inside a draw.

A pack of rubber bands
A new desk mat
A tank of fuel (fuck me!)
Lifting straps (because I'm not flexible enough, not because I'm lifting a very heavy weight)
