so...... just a question and a story
is it real? cuz the acting and scenarios look kinda fake to me

and the story...i had a friend who bought one of these so he can overhear conversations like it said in the commercial.and he lived in an apartment
and he told me that one night he felt like trying it and it turns out he heard some"ooohh papi, yes yes yes, i think im cuuuuummmmminngg baby"


And ggSWALLOWEDme said "My hearing is fine, but I bought this because I thought I might do better at bingo. It didn't work, but I did hear someone across the room tell his friend that I smelled like moth balls"

what do you think

I remember that commercial and when they mentioned that you could hear other people's coversations from across the room, I thought "isn't that illegal?". How does the company that makes the item get away with it? They should be shut down. Why don't they just say "call in the next 10 minutes and we'll throw in a free spy camera so you can check out your hot neighbor in the shower"?

Pretty obvious that it's just some company's way of cashing in on the fact that old people wanna make their hearing better but not look old with a hearing aid; something that looks like a bluetooth earpiece looks trendy and hip. I'm sure it amplifies sound a bit, but there's almost no way it works like it shows in the ad... it's $15. Come on, use your brain :P

LOOL at the guy nodding and spying at the party, that was priceless! Imagine that kind of creep at your party. Holy shit.

It's just like the Whisper 2000 that they had years ago that I remember seeing televised.

"Woman in couple: Do you remember that guy who used to ride around the lakes on a bike and stab people in the butt?
Man in couple: That would hurt."

"Guy: Iím thoroughbred Cheq. Wait, whatís the difference between thoroughbred and purebred?
Girl: I think thoroughbred is only for horses.
Guy: Well, Iím kind of like a horse."

So good.

Huh?

Also, surely you got back at him for beating you at NFSC by telling him about it?

EDIT:


This Is When It All Started

Little girl #1: Good news! My mom said I can sleep over at your house!
Little girl #2: My mom said you can’t.

Overheard by Amused neighbor.


I found this one really funny for some reason.

Boy #1: Did you hear that Flip Saunders took the Washington Wizards job?
Boy #2: What did they used to be called again?
Boy #1: The Bullets.
Boy #2: Why did they change it?
Boy #1: I guess the owner of the Bullets thought the name was too violent.
Boy #2: (ponders for a second) Wizards are way more dangerous than Bullets.

hey have tons of those "overheard in...." websites. we may have posted about them here before, because for some reason i remember sharing a favorite from nyc....

anyway. i don't see how that thing can really work. if you use it at a loud party, you can NOT zero in on the hot girls in the corner. you will just hear the drunken beer pong game that much louder.

Yeah, I think there's one for every big city. I just came across it a few months ago, and only knew the link to the Minneapolis one.

This is exactly true.

I just made a submission... I'm not sure if it'll get published or not. But it was as following:

30-something year old woman after singing "The Colors of the Wind" from Pocahontas to her grandpa-looking boyfriend: You know, the only issue I have with that song is that she sings "You think the only people who are people, are the people who look and think like you" while playing with a bear. I mean, bears aren't people, right? Is she trying to say they are?

I heard it at Target near my apartment... after she said that, I turned to look at who had just said this, expecting a teenager or something... I pretty much lol'd as soon as I saw this weird looking lady holding hands with a geezer. She just smiled at me.
