Wiper Motor Tutorial 12vDC Parking Motors and PicoBoos

First and foremost, lets get the formalities out of the way. This tutorial is only about our PARKING MOTORS. And remember, whenever you’re working with any motor, make sure they’re completely disconnected so you don’t smash your widdle iddy biddy fingers. And please, never touch your tongue to any Halloween prop motor.

20% Off All Masks! SIX DAYS ONLY!

You smile at your annoying co-workers as they pass by your desk. You say “thank you” to the check-out clerk that ignored you when you asked them how their day was. You nod your head and tell everyone your day is “fine” after locking your keys in your car.

Truly, aren’t we all wearing a mask of sorts? Like, a metaphysical one, man.


Nah. Not really. After all, we’re a Halloween store. Masks to us mean vampires, zombies, and crazy mutant rednecks. Heck, a couple holes in a white sheet is a mask as far as we’re concerned. Luckily for you, we’re not a fabric store. We don’t sell sheets. We sell masks – and we’re offering a heck of a deal on them, too. You see, our mask prices are already marked down, but from February 13th to February 16th, we’re going to give you an opportunity for record-smashing savings.

Valentine’s Day Haunts Are Your New True Love


It’s not that I’m a killjoy for Valentine’s Day, really – but why do we take one day a year to celebrate and reflect on love? It seems like a cheap way for emotionally-stunted men to sheepishly hand women a handful of flowers they just bought from the gas station as they mumble some kind words. Meanwhile, businesses make money off of all us chumps while we scratch our heads, still feeling weird and insecure. (more…)
