You Want, You Lose Fridays

This is a post about a popular internet game called You X, You Lose.

It is used with any pic related to the X, and if you agree with rule X you lose.

X can be a multitude of things such as:
-You Laugh, You Lose (do I really have to explain this one)
-You Nostalgia, You Lose (reminiscing about childhood things)
-You Rage, You Lose (relate to an annoying situation, you lose)
-You Want, You Lose (posting a desirable item and if you want it, you lose)

I have decided in the spirit of how awesome Friday is, it being the day that kicks off the weekend, Fridays will be a showcase of You Want, You Lose items. Hope you find them as desirable and jaw dropping as I do.

Note: Some of these, you can buy and I have a link. I am in no way affiliated with the products or the companies that make them. I am simply making your life easier if you would like to buy them.
These are called Fizz Savers and they basically work like keeping pop on tap.
Available for purchase here: Fizz Dispenser from Amazon
This is... pure genius. They are as you can see, balloons shaped like missiles to tail your car. To passerbys it looks like heat seeking missiles are chasing you down and are trying to seek and destroy. Pretty funny when you see their face, not so funny when the cops pull you over. In America at least it's illegal to dangle anything off your car (like balloon missiles)

To top things off I looked all over the internet but I just can't find anywhere to buy these. So while you can LOOK at how awesome they are as well as drool over them, you can't buy them.

We all remember the awesome the Pin Art thing we had as kids, you can put your handprint through it, make the pins look like a penis, even stab your eye out when you want to engrave your face in pin history, that is, until your buddy shakes it and all was lost. Well, this is a pin clock. Meaning its super bad ass, so bad ass that it is currently sold out on Amazon. It doens't have a backlight though so it's only good in the light. Also reviewers say it makes an audible click every minute, so it is definitely a novelty clock. But if you really want it keep trying back here:Pin Clock on Amazon Be warned though this clock will cost you a cool $70.
Ah chess, a great game I learned and played a lot while growing up but those days are over... WAIT holy shit.... chess with beer or shots depending your preference and how wasted you are willing to get. Now I can't find a particular seller for this set (guess you can make your own if you have enough glasses, each piece is a different type of glass) or if you don't like that idea you can go out and find whatever board suits you, there are plenty to choose from.
My last pic is called the Aspiral Clock. The premise behind this clock is that it turns every minute and the ball rolls along with gravity to tell the correct time. At 12 o'clock, the ball drops thru the center, back to the outside and starts its 12 hour journey all over again. Before you start drooling too hard over this image, just like the Pin Clock, they are sold out. Except for one... Visit their website here: Aspiral Clocks for more details but they have one clock left they are auctioning off in May, with the new edition coming out later this year. Their clocks sell for £350 which to Americans means a whopping $564.04 and I don't think that includes shipping. Their later model will probably be around the same price if you want to wait for it, but if you don't you can take your chances at the auction (I wouldn't)
