Uhm. A 2% share in case these two guys find the Holy Grail. Considering no one has found it for centuries, I think it would be a hazardous deal.

Thats hilarious..

Hum, we could do something similiar.. We could search for Gygax's first woodgrain boxset and sell shares to those who want to sponser the effort.

What is hilarious is that they are "seasoned" hunters. Wouldn't that imply past successes?
I'm a seasoned Quest for the Golden Orb Hunter myself. Been hunting for ages.

    I just wanted to point you back to this finished auction.

    "Laughable" as it apparently sounded, my Buy-It-Now offer of $20 was in fact very close to the final price for this item.  It did not sell for anything near the $75 or $100 figures that were mentioned by others here.

    I based my offer on what the lot was likely to go for and what the seller's previous lots had sold for.

    If the seller had not bumbled about Ebay, making snotty remarks he could easily have sold these separately for more than he got.

    If he had chosen not to snub me...no matter how rude I apparently was...and had taken my suggestion of making a counter-offer, he probably would have gotten more money.

   But, I'll also know how to handle it better next time.

hey mark

i didnt think you were "rude". i think it could have been worded a lil more advantageously, but that aside, looks like your value was pretty much spot on there. well done for that. its not much of a consolation really, but still nice to know when youre on the mark. once he pays fees on that lot, hes gonna pretty much be left with that anyway.

Are you criticizing the spelling?

Colin is a version of Collin.  I believe that Colin Powell spells his name that way.

I just checked...yes, he does.

I once knew a fellow named Kawlin.  (He was chinese, however, so he may have been going for a phonetic spelling of the name.)

I don't get it. Let me go listen to k-fed's music and drop my IQ 20 or so points and I'm sure it will make sense.

didnt know where else to post this, so thought i would just put it here.

each day, ebay sends me a search for "rare" items. each and every feckin day, right at the top of the listings are always:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... :B:SS:UK:1

and

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... :B:SS:UK:1

well as they are homemade items and by the pure volume the guy has listed, i dont think they are even common. they are too common to be common!!

i am gonna send him a msg just for the hell of it:

question to seller:

"hey there. just wondered about this item and a few others you have listed. you quote it as rare, yet i have prb seen a new one of these every few days listed by you on my ebay searches. so is it that rare? just wondering like. Regards...Kj"

lets see what amusing reply i get...
