    Other than burning them to make a little steam to generate a small amount of electricity, is there anything useful you can do with a thousand Beanie Babies? I mean, you can't sell these things anymore, can you?

    Ugh, one of my pet peeves! What a useless waste of money! And seemingly normal and intelligent people fell for the whole scheme (makes me embarrassed for my gender that were, I think, all female :mad:), and actually thought that they would be valuable some day. What a crock!

    There are actually still stores around here that have "One Purchase Per Customer Per Day!". Puh-leeze :rolleyes:.

    Good idea. My girlfriend thought of it at the same time. I called the local childrens hospital and they are happy to take them.
