Of course I did! You weren't a kid if you didn't send away for stupid shit! I loved it.
I think I bought plans to build a jetpack for a couple of bucks. Didn't work.
I wonder if this nuclear sub is still available? Looks pretty cool...
I still use my x-ray specs at the mall to look at naked ladies.
Comics always had one for building muscles too. I wonder what you got if you actually sent away for that one.
It even had a ten day free trial? That's awesome!
I loved those sleazy Johnson Smith catalogs. The ink was so grimy and the paper so cheap, but I loved everything in there.
X-ray specs, stupid magic tricks that never worked, a "jew's harp." You name it, I bought it.
well if it doesn't work, I don't think you'll be around for a refund
There's always a catch
Let's go shopping!
My sea monkeys never built a castle
Here's an article I found on that submarine.
"Obviously, since this puppy cost a whopping seven dollars (compared to the 10 and 50 cent items advertised), it had to be on the level. Living very near Lake St. Clair, Mary and I had all sorts of plans for our sub when it arrived – "we can sneak across to Canada without paying the toll!" Alas, chalk up one more childhood dream dashed; the "nuclear sub" was made of cardboard (which was shipped flat in a box and required assembly). The torpedo and rocket launchers? Rubber bands. I still can't decide which hurt most – the submarine that was water-soluble, or the parents who tsked and lectured "Maybe you've learned your lesson this time...""
Here's the sub
I was too busy selling Grit.
6. Kryptonite Rocks
For the low price of $2.50 you could earn Superman's eternal gratitude by purchasing these Kryptonite rocks and keeping them out of the hands of the Forces of Evil. Skeptics in the audience might posit that these were nothing more than regular rocks painted glow-in-the-dark green, but how would they prove it? After all, if Superman never showed up at your house, the Kryptonite was obviously doing its job, right?
