At least no one can complain about the seller not having large clear pictures/scans 8O :

<edit> This seller actually has a lot of decent stuff. Might be worth a look. :wink:

Alright Paul, since I know that you were going for this with this description, I will happily nominate you. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:  Here it is back by popular, popular demand:

eBay

It is the VERY VERY COMMON TRS module B2 in absolutely HORRIBLE condition. :lol:  Keep in mind that this is for the Drangeons and Dugons gaem!! Somewhere out there Jonb/TGE/ETC is rolling over in his proverbial grave(s). :P


:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

BTW, I have used modules for lots of crazy sh*t before, but I never thought to use it as TP. :o

If stormber hadn't mentioned that the module reeked of cigarette smoke I might have bid on this B2 as a goof to reward stormber's wackiness.  But cigarette smoke makes me ill so I'll have to say no dice on this one... but what a great description!   :D

Not really laughable but I had to post this somewhere. I would really like to have bought some of these but were afraid I could not meet one of the requirements and it would cost me money or a feedback hit. Has to be one of the least friendly listings I have ever read....sort of reminds me of the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld....

That would be friggin' hilarious!  I laughed my ass off reading that description, but to actually see it in flames...my god, we've GOT to get Paul to relist it that way.  I'll chip in another 3.

I have seen avatars on message boards nearly as big as some of those files. Really makes it tough to get around.

Yeah, I know.  At home on the phone line, avatars are a big pain.

However, I finally caved and made one -- if anyone's curious it's a graphical representation of the last few hours of traffic utilization on my network's backbone.  It should turn blue during the wee hours of the morning (EST).  ;)

:lol: <---note: 300 bytes.

They are usually animated GIFs but I have seen a few static avatars hovering around the 200k mark. I just dont think folks know how to save the images. I didn't when I first started to dork around the computer.

Any idea how one would go about doing that. Even the industrial office grade hole punches would not work. Some drill or mechanical dye punch?

I was wondering that myself, although looking at how awful the holes are I would say it was a drill. 8O

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Players Handbook | eBay

As this a very rare American printing, I might just be tempted by that £74.99 BIN  8O

Then again, you never know.  Someone could well buy into this....  Hey, it might even be that ever so rare 5th printing I've been looking for...

How freaking stupid can people get.
You may not realize it, but auctions like that are an insult to people. What the seller is saying is "Soemwhere out there, there is probably someone stupid enough to buy this at that price". That is terribly insulting, and REALLY aggravates me.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.
