We must all have done it...

Bought something on the spur of the moment, or blinded by the magic of new technology, or simply to cheer ourselves up when we're feeling a bit tissed off with the world.

Then regretted it.

My own was a 15' rock rod and Australian Alvey sidecast reel, with the intention of fishing the from the 400 foot high cliffs near Flamborough. Never used it. Went for a look to choose a mark, and the whole prospect scared me witless. One slip, just one, and you are very DEAD.
Should have looked before I leaped, so to speak.

A few years ago there was a minor and very temporary hempseed shortage. So yours truly bought 8 stone of "hemp" which turned out to be rubbish and dust. Still in my garage, just in case...

Come on, cheer me up. I can't be the only one can I?
