    I'm only a paltry $275. That leaves us $75 mad money.

    Or you could invest in some mutual funds, and watch that money grow until you really need it.
    Holy big baggie batman...jesus he would be flying for a few weeks. (well oops, red light district didn't clue in)

    Personally none of the stuff you named gets me excited. Does anything stand out for you, or are you just "looking" to spend the money. If you are just looking, wait and save it until you need it.

    I wouldn't buy a green laser now. There are 3-4 manufacturers now and the prices will drop significantly.

    If in doubt, I always buy bike stuff.

    A laser sounds cool, but I think you will get bored with it soon enough and wish you hadn't bought it.

    I have a 15mw wicked laser but it's not working that well but Im still having fun with it hehe. Especially on the highways. If you're about a qt mile from an aluminum alloid high way sign the dot is bigger then the back of a car's end.

    That would be payment for the 30 billable minutes it took you to research and document that option for him?

    Among those choices, I would go with saving it.

    I also thought about using to turn the backyard from the normal crap grass/dirt into nice lush green grass. It's a half an acre so that would be a lot of seeds.
