    Talking to a girl about how she either needs to send me nudes or don't instead of playing stupid-ass games with me. Nothing out of the ordinary here.

    EDIT: To clarify, I mean as in instead of send pics of her with her pants half down or in her underwear to just fucking do it instead of being annoying about it.

    I figured Taiwan would be the main dude for this question, but I'll leave it up to anyone.

    I found some Matchbox jets in my closet. One is a "Grumman F-14 Tomcat" dated 1989, the second one is a "SB 4 Mirage F1" dated 1973, and the last one is a "SB 15 Phantom F4E" dated 1975. Are these in anyway a collector's item? I just found them mixed in with all my army guys, they're in really nice condition.

    The girl eating the burrito is also the high priestess of a cult I formed.

    Post pictures! The "SB" stands for "Sky Busters," which was the line of toys those little die-cast planes belonged to. They still make "Sky Busters" today, but the ones in stores now are all done with flamboyant paint schemes/colors/names and are all like, brightly colored and designed only loosely based on real-world aircraft. Once in a while you'd be able to find a model of a real plane, but with a garish unrealistic paint scheme (like this B-1 Lancer I received as a gift). The number after "SB" represents the number of the model in the line. So your Mirage F1 (SB 4) was the fourth model of the line, and your Phantom was the fifteenth. So that would make them pretty unique.

    Their worth is actually partly dependent on their paint schemes, which was really the main reason I'm asking you to post pictures. Matchbox reused some of their same molds in their later aircraft. I knew I had a couple lying around on my desk and after some rummaging I found an A-10, Tornado, and the B-1. The Tornado (SB 23) I have is dated 1977, but I know that my mom bought it for me at Target when I was three (1999). So even though your Phantom and F1 might be dated 1977, they might not have as much as a "collector's worth" as you might think.

    But imho, "collector's worth" isn't really important to me. It's the fact that these toys provided you hours of fun as a kid that makes them priceless. But yeah, I can see where you're coming from. It doesn't hurt to wonder

    I had a Harrier from that series but it disappeared. I played with it all the time when I was young and it really showed with all the wear on it. I remember one time I was playing with it and another plane and dropped it in a mug of hot chocolate because the other plane shot it down

    Shit, those are in almost pristine condition! That Tomcat *might* be an older one (by a year or two), but the Phantom and Mirage are probably the same age as my Tornado- the 1999 edition. The authentic colors are the giveaway: the original '70s Sky Busters were molded in brightly colored plastic and had orange-clear canopies. Hope this helps!

    Yeah, I thought the same thing, considering that I got them at a garage sale when I was like 7 years old and played with them all the time, then they sat in a box in my closet for like 3 or 4 years.

    Couldn't find my old jet collection, but at least I still have these badass VF-1's. I should really get around to putting the decals on the other 2, look sort of bare without them.

    So my World History class is learning about WWII and stuff, and of course the only thing my teacher ever says is "6 MILLION JEWS DO YOU UNDERSTAND THEY DIED FOR YOU SO THOSE NAZIS WOULDN'T TAKE OVER AMERICA HOLOCAUST HOLOCAUST HOLOCAUST."

    I chime in with "But what about American internment camps of the Japanese? Also, what about the not-genocide parts of the war, like MacArthur returning to the Philippines and stuff?"

    She replied "INTERNMENT CAMPS WERE A CONSPIRACY, AND WAR IS NOT HAPPY, THERE ARE NO HEROES IN WAR ONLY MURDERERS."

    Thank goodness that there's only a week left of school.
