    OMG guys, I screwed up big time. I think...
    In Excitement to the ladder that I ordered that's coming in Friday. I ordered a Blue Rotopax which I seen on sale for $8 online because the color is discontinued.
    Jumping for joy because I got a deal, I was totally disappointed when I got home from work today to see this in the box..

    What am I possibly gonna do with this?
    1 Make a Keychain or 2 Buy a model 4runner truck and mount it on the back.
    This will never work for what I wanted it for.:(

    I really don't even think a sip.
    I'm so disappointed in myself but I can't stop laughing either thinking this must be a joke..

    It’s made for that space age type water that the astronauts drink in space. Just a hypodermic needle drop, can do the job of 5 gallons of regular water. :)

    Actually it is the correct size. You use instant water powder in it. Just add water.:boink:

    Things with stuff, but nothing much
    I think you should mount it anyway, that'd be a funny poke at the guys that go full Clay Croft on their rigs.

    eBay etc are FULL of scams. I've seen great deals for video game machines and then read the fine print to discover that they are literally selling just the box it came in for like $100. So $8 for a mini water jug is not a bad price at all. I like the idea of a keychain. Especially if you can get matching blue full size jugs for your rig.

    I need to set up a paypal so I can buy this from you. My entire freaking rig is built on jokes and puns. This would fit in perfectly with the next addition I had planned, so please at least provide a link? :cookiemonster::hungry:

    I would say size doesn't matter but in this case, I was so let down. You don't know how excited I was. I went from 100 to 0 really really quick..:rofl:

    It's not a keychain on the website it's described as a 2 gallon RotoPax.
    I might as well use it as one or mount it anyways on my ladder as a joke.

    I was looking for a factor 55 winch thimble on Ebay and several scale model ones popped up. Unless you read it carefully, you'd think you were getting a smoking deal... and it'd be 1:25 scale when it arrived....
