I was lurking for a while before the Dope became free and I must say I was influenced into making a few purchases after reading some of the threads.
I hadn’t heard of the Diva Cup until coming to the board (they don’t sell anything even remotely resembling it in Australia, just pads and tampons) and after reading about it I immediately went online and ordered one for myself. It’s fabulous! Best thing next for pain killers at that time of the month.
I also just received ‘The Man Who Folded Himself’ from Amazon and it’s a great (rather weird) book which was mentioned in a post about time travel and if you would choose to have sex with yourself (finding this place was like coming home!).
So I am curious, have you ever gone out and bought something/done something as a direct result of the SDMB? If so what was it, what was the thread that inspired it about and how did it work out for you?
