I do NOT know where people dream these things up, or even WHY, but there should be a LAW against them!

Other responder is correct - the link seems to be broken and won't load. BUT, by the title of it "point-mouse-is-not-a-very-good-valentines-gift," I think I can imagine what it is. People invent things, I think, just to make money. Believe it or not, you could invent something you think nobody would buy and somebody would probably buy it. People buy anything these days. I saw a thing on ebay where people were buying "jarred air" from places like the Caribbean or the Himalayas, etc. I don't understand why people come up with weird (or disgusting) items, but they do and they're making some sort of money off of it, I can bet.

Copy and paste the link and replace the "http://" with "www.".

Which is what I did, but I was assuming that this responder was too new to have signed up for the notifications from Elic. I might be wrong, but was making sure.

It does look disgusting. I couldn't even really tell what it was supposed to do. whatever it is I'm sure it is disgusting! Some people will buy anything.

Well, I must admit I got a few chuckles from the posts that went with it.

I have just looked at the link, yes it is deffinely not safe for work. the only I approapate plaece for that is at home or somewhere private. I showed this to my gf and she said, "omg!" that an't right! I do not think I care for one of either. I think the artile is righ, it is a bad gift, and is in poor taste.

Yeah, some people really are sick to think of something like that. But then again, there are all kinds of adult-rated gag gifts out there. I've seen some pretty crazy things, but nothing like this, however, it still doesn't surprise me.

I think this needs getting used to on my part as well. Not to include the http when you post a link..I think it'll be that way until myLot fixes something or we have to stick with only www in front in future.

Man, that really looks awful and I wonder who would be the buyers if it ever comes to the market! The basic outlook is excellent but the design is what makes it mature! Ho! It looks like a ***i**! The link is broken!
