Athletic Supporters and Other Structural Engineering Marvels
Things We Bought That Suck...or Not is kind of like Consumer Reports if it were run by a pair of Canucks who wear their maple leaves proudly on their sleeves. The premise is elegant: buy something (rugby shorts, for example), eventually discover something wrong with it ("asymetrical testicle support"), then bitch about it.
Most of the purchases are fairly conventional - a haircut, sushi, a hockey stick - but the one we were most impressed with was the six months of education at MIT for only $100 (we're not sure if that's Canadian or US dollars). The MIT experience is, thus far, the only item to not recieve a "Suck" or "Not suck" rating, earning instead an "Intermediate." We can only hope that one of America's premier engineering institutions offered exquisitely symetrical testicular support or the last bridge we ever ride over in this country was crossed this morning.
