I mean, it's well known that a weedwhacker is cooler than a bucket, but buckets are still very cool. So what's on par with a bucket? This is an open debate.

The penny is on par with a bucket. a bucket of :skull::skull::skull::skull: that is :D

I enjoy pockets because they're like mini-buckets attached to your pants.

Loony BoB
12-12-2006, 11:46 PM
That's disgusting, Bert.

I'm talking about empty buckets, anyway. Well, an empty bucket. That means one bucket. And a penny is certainly nowhere near as cool as a bucket.

EDIT: Pockets are also not as cool as buckets.

It's actually kind of creepy because I was originally thinking of ranking things and editing my first post constantly based on the arguments made in this thread as to how cool something is.

Maybe I should do that.

A bucket hand is cooler than bucket. After all, you can sit on it when you're tired.

Hm... I don't know. I would say a folding table is as cool as a bucket, but that may just be the whore in me talking.

Loony BoB
12-12-2006, 11:50 PM
A pail is not as cool as a bucket. That's like saying a Casio is as cool as a Rolex. Which actually might be closer to the truth.

I don't even know what a bucket hand is but it certainly can't be as cool as a bucket. It's a spinoff. Fool's Gold!

Well, if we're talking about a empty bucket that changes everything!
Well, I'd say bucket tool belt is on par since you need the bucket for the tool belt! :D

Loony BoB
12-12-2006, 11:53 PM
Lamps are okay, but too cliché what with the whole "I love lamp" crap. It became too mainstream to be a true classic like buckets are. I was never really into lamps.

Folding table is an intersting argument and I'll have to think on it.

What's a bucket tool belt?

And a bucket hand too. Man are you guys making bucket everythings over in America? God you ruin a good thing sometimes.

EDIT: What, me double post?

Chip clip. Not only is it more versatile than a bucket, but you can stick it on someone and cause them pain.

I've started the cool wall but I still have no freaking clue what the hell that is supposed to be. It's a belt that goes around a bucket? Do you dress your dog, too?

That is possibly the worst suggestion yet. :(

Though I stand by my folding table suggestion, I'll continue to ponder this while I make my cocoa.

escobert

Some people dress their dogs :D. It's so you can put you tools outside the bucket and still be able to put things IN the bucket ;)

Now that's more like it! This is much closer to being as cool as a bucket.

The barrel is merely the uncle of a bucket. What's that about?

Seriouly, or what about a bucket for a tractor. It's a bigger more useful bucket

I don't know, but I think it's something to do with something I've seen on a Western movie.

EDIT: Let's not get into the detail of the variety of buckets. That's going into way too much detail. Generalise more.

Because it's pointless asking what is as cool as a weedwhacker is since the answer is nothing.

I can't deal with Rye's mind games, I can't put pie charts up there. There's too much emotional conflict going on there.

Non-lick envelopes are definitely going up there.

EDIT: I'm totally not including people, I'll get in trouble.

Ironing boards, coat hangers, and lava lamps are cooler than buckets.

I like the way you think a lot better than your ideas for new usernames.

Analog watches was really tough to put on there. I had to consider it against coffee tables for some time.

I'll go ahead with good confidence and say Paper clips. I mean, come on, just look at them!

http://p.office1000.com/mrp/26749BAU.jpg

More examples to be found here (http://www.officemuseum.com/Elongated_nifty_type_paper_clip.jpg), here (http://www.nunndesign.com/images/pageclips/paper-clip-individ.jpg), here (http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/j/ap/xmtl10404162128.widec.jpg), here (http://www.nunndesign.com/images/pageclips/monogram.jpg), here (http://www.sxc.hu/pic/m/t/th/theliberat/355617_paper_clip.jpg) and here. (http://www.nunndesign.com/images/pageclips/paper-clip-oval.jpg)

You can do other stuff with them than to hold paper together! For example, bend them to Sakai tops (http://www.grand-illusions.com/images/articles/articles/paper_clip_top/paper_clip_top_diagram.gif), use them as a haircut on whoever happens to have a magnetic head (http://komod.com.ua/images/goodsphoto/00000391/paper-clip-dispenser-black_x500.jpg), making christmas tree decorations (http://www.merrimack.edu/uploads/Jewish_Christian_Relations/files/paper%20clip%20for%20web.JPG), bending them to stupid shapes (http://www.resonancepub.com/images/Paper_Clip_Motor_1.gif) or this (http://www.ualberta.ca/~happnin/images/album_05_06/Paper%20Clip.JPG) (I don't know what these are doing and why, but they sure seem to be having fun!)

The best thing of all, though, has to be that you'll never run out of them! It's like magic!

Several gallons of melted cheese. However, they would be stroed in a big bucket, so I guess that makes the bucket cooler because without it the cheese would go everywhere. Damnit.

Cucumbers.
