    i didnt jump to anything.

    dude said he would buy things so they would think suspect him,i take that to mean he is scared that if he didnt buy a pack of gum they would stop him,

    and gum isnt censored, ever.

    its not clever, most cameras are at the registers, so if you wana was a dollar and stick your face infront of a cameras for no reason, and if your doing it right theres nothing you should have to pay for at a micheals type store.



    i make no claim to be hardcore or know every thing, and admit there is alot i dont know and many ppl better than me,

    Okay well I disagree because my friend told me at cvs he was racking some rit dye and kiwis and when he went to buy a drink he accidentally pulled up his shirt to get his keys to leave and they saw it in his waistband so when they asked him whats that under your shirt he was like MY BELT BUCKLE and gave them a disgusted look so really he put himself more at risk by buying something, but they let him go anyways lol because they cant just check his waistband because they saw a bulge

    Well here it is a small store just for book things and stuff like that...
    A little art store...
    There are always 2 employees working...

    They mostly talk with each other and don`t care about anything..
    And it will soon be september = schools starts...
    So it is always full and the two are already stressed to the core
    so they don˙t even look around...

    And if it is a small store and I buy like 1 or 2 canvases...
    Will it really make me more suspicious?.. No, because it is an art store..

    Anyway can someone post the glow in the dark streaks from sakura?..
    I want to see the effect till I get mine...

    has anyone ever made a marker with the body of an old highlighter?

    You could make it that color, only it would be better ink that wouldn't fade 'n whatnot. Good for insides.

    not in some cases...like a deco seems easy to re-fill with ink to me. I have a nice highlighter I plan to fill...

    unelss you have oil based ink, re-fillin a deco isnt goign to work wihtout beign a pain in teh ass. and higlighters have a really small nib, so its almost not worth it.

    if it is cotton filled like a sharpi or pilot, you can refiil it with new cotton and ink.

    i have just squirted my ink into a prisma style marker cotton and it worked fine.

    if you're just going to put cotton as the nib, it'll leak. it'll be worthless after all the ink leaks out or gets used up. you'd be better off refilling a sharpie because its detachable and the felt inside the marker will absorb the ink, without having to replace the nib and having it leak all over the place. unless your highlighter has detachable parts, it's not meant to be refilled.

    I usually buy a bag of chips when it's a Walmart. Or when it's something like Home Depot or Office Depot I buy a bag of MM's and a magazine.
    They never suspect anything and I get to enjoy my foodz OM NOM NOM NOM.

    i don't think that'll work out too well because they tend to crumble, and harden.

    Word.

    And on the Markal thing, heres how i did it...

    1.)take markal(s) and tear off paper.
    2.)get JUMBO glue stick, not jumbo as in long, jumbo as in wide, thick, w.e u canna call it...like a scrawl pen.
    3.) clean glue and all glue residue out, screw it back down to the bottom.
    4.)cut out the spindle inside.
    5.)split the streaks, push together, (not to hard) and put them down in the glue stick.
    6.)get a lighter and hold it around the glue stick for a few minutes LIGHTLY melting up the markals inside.
    7.)make sure that they are all the way down at the bottom, and hold it down there for a while to.
    8.)cut excess markal off tha top, cap it. but keep ur extra cause u can use it for later if u need it.

    This can be done using just one markal to if ud like. i prefer it cause i can screw it up or down like the sharpie, sanford and sakura streaks.

    just picked up 2 staples letter wetters and a 2 way glue pen.

    Btw, for future reference the staples letter wetters [like 80 cents] can be capped with a kiwi cap [ on the right ].
