CrunchGear has recently released a list of some “must have” back to school items. Usually with online lists, there is some debate over the contents, but this just gets nasty.
CrunchGear recommends items like a nearly $200 backpack and a huge plasma TV that are obviously too expensive for any student.
To this I say: sorry buddy, my $29 wal-mart bag is doing just great. However by far the best remark is from commenter Ilya :
I have never in my life read a more worthless list of useless, overpriced garbage. Who the hell needs a backpack that costs $189.95? No no, forget the backpack. Who the hell needs a 55 inch HDTV while theyâ€™re in SCHOOL!? Do you know what school is? Are you from another planet!?
It even prompted a:
OK seriously, what the fuck?
from another reader.
And, by the way, there are more important things you might need.
However, in the spirit of CrunchGear’s list, here’s one thing you will need:
Dont write like the other heathens, no college students is complete with a pen that is crafted from solid 18k gold. Scoff at your classmates that are “less financially off” as you write your essay while watching Lost on a jumbo-tron sized screen. Just be sure your butler is around to clean any ink stains.
