    Question A UK version?

    Ok as most of the peps here will know think geek sells some of the greatest stuff ever
    but my only prob is with the distance its away from me
    living in the uk means that i gotta worry about things such as custom's fees not too mention the shiping charge >_<;
    I was just wondering if anyone had come across a similar online store operating outta the UK??
    could save me (alot of others am sure) some serious hassle when buying some new toys

    *sigh* I didn't even know *that* site existed, now I can be eternally tormented by the wondrous things that live too far away for me to own, like the cool foods at asiafoods.com! lol

    you can try www.gadgets.co.uk which is great for those necessary little gadgets to show off with ! as for clothing i have always ordered mine from the US and never had to pay customs charges on clothes ?????? a good site is www.geekgarb.com.

    hope this helps

    valhallen.. you want one of these ?

    from valhallen's link

    The L39 is a Russian Air Force jet. Fairly similar to our RAF Hawk which sells at around 5 million, at only 150,000 it's a bargain!
    Simple to fly, this sporty little number attains jet speeds and has the added attraction of BRI rocket assisted ejection seats for getting rid of annoying back seat drivers. The cockpit is fully air-conditioned as standard and the windscreen is anti-iced for those cold morning starts.

    Though its speed from 0-60 is not phenomenal, it'll get you to 16,400 feet in under five minutes, which puts paid to your commuting nightmares (though landing in heavily built-up areas is not advised). For a really good view the L39 can climb up to 36,000 feet. It holds 276 gallons / 1,225 litres of fuel, has a flying time of about two and half hours and a max speed of 435mph. So in top gear you'll get about four miles to the gallon, which doesn't stack up much against your standard saloon for economy, but hey, it's a fighter jet.

    The L39 comes painted to your own specification (we advise against Iraqi military colours if flying around the home counties), and with western radios installed - so great for Dolly Parton fans. Any extra avionics would be fitted as extra and all military ordnance would be removed - so no guns, unfortunately

    do you think you need those "rocket assisted ejection seats for getting rid of annoying back seat drivers" ????

    i'm ready.. you buy.. we all fly..
