Every time I look at items on Amazon, which is often, I'm baffled at the sheer stupidity of people and reasons they remove stars from a product.

Today's highlight is for a 2 unit wireless meat thermometer. Mr. TexasRancher says it's awesome, but he had to remove a star because it requires 2 sets of batteries.

What the fucking fuck. It's 2 units! Did you think one of them was going to run on solar power? Or maybe the probe unit magically steals energy from the unit in the kitchen? :facepalm:

Would be pretty bad ass if one unit was also a Tesla coil.

Or the ones that give it one star because they bought the wrong thing.

Yep. People knocking the quality of a product because of their own stupidity just amazes me. If it's a relatively recent review, I'll call them out on it :lol:

"I bought 5 smoke alarms for my home and wish they would use the same 9 volt battery."

On a related note, my wife bought me one of those rechargeable Tesla coil lighters for Christmas and it's pretty badass. Makes me wish I was a smoker.

It's neat, but I've heard it's near impossible to light anything that's not a cigarette.

I only write amazon reviews if it's negative :oops:

I'm more likely to just respond to people's stupid comments and mock/call them out there like I did on the in the op
