    Chad's Crappy Corner And His New Theme For August Picked By Our Loyal Patreons.

    Chad polls our faithful Patrons to determine each month's theme for 'Chad's Crappy Corner'. This month our patron's voted on a theme Chad is very excited about. It's “Cheap Tech Gadgets from Thrift Shops'. The reason Chad likes it is that on his 1st visit to his 1st thrift shop, he found three fun, tech-like gadgets, cheap! Chad's first gadget is the Wacky Wake Up Clock! It's long out of production but still listed on Amazon through 3rd party sellers for about $40. The purpose of this strange looking clock is get you out of bed with a bunch of annoying people sort of screaming at you. (Be sure to watch Chad's video in this week's show.)You can wake to one of seven funny random wake-up phrases, or the sound of an old fashion alarm bell. Even though the description online talks about falling asleep or waking to your AM/FM radio Chad showed us there is no hint of a radio in the clock. Chad also likes that the big red LED digits for the time display are easy to read, and can be dimmed for sleep if you like. But wait, there's more the clock includes a battery backup in case of power failure. What put this over the top for Chad was that his cost for $4!
