Bucky Balls


Basically these little fucks are magnetic balls that you can play with and make different shapes and objects. Personally when I first hear of them I thought they were the most amazing things around BUT they are ridiculously hard to master, which is both good and bad.

For me I hate something that I can mess with for hours on end and never get good at and this happens to be one of those things. About the only "shape" I can make with these, is the original cube it comes packaged in, GG right? Even with the help of online guides I continue to fail at any venture I take on. Partly because I'll try for about five minutes and decide the Xbox is a lot more fun and leave it.

But if you like challenging toys that are somewhat grown-up and like magnets these balls are your best friend. They aren't too expensive and you can find the fucks on www.thinkgeek.com (an all around amazing website for odd/geeky items).
