    Chad's Crappy Corner And Another Thrift Shop Tech Gadget - His Theme For August.

    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 still very excited about. It's “Cheap Tech Gadgets from Thrift Shops'. And this week's gadget is the BUG-A-SALT!

    BUG-A-SALT is a way to get rid of bugs in places where you don't want to use chemicals, or sprays. This gun, as it's name implies, uses table salt. Fortunately for the demo, Chad choose pictures of flies so we could see how the fired salt actually is quite powerful. And it turns out BUG-A-SALT is a big deal online with many versions. Here, for Amazon, is a bit about the one that looks closest to the one Chad bought at the Thrift Store. LIMITED EDITION DESIGN! The BUG-A-SALT CAMOFLY 2.0 is the most powerful, efficient BUG-A-SALT designed yet. The Bug-A-Salt shoots a shotgun spray of regular table salt and decimates flies on contact. A surefire fun way to enjoy a disgusting task. Rid your house of all those pesky pests and have a blast while doing it. $50.00. -------Wow, $50. Chad paid 10% of that price, and got it for just $5. Here's the $50 version. There are many cheaper ones online too.
