Gonna be a jackass here to some of you. So the question is just how big of an auction is HUGE? I have seen them with 4 items and its a huge auction. I have seen others with 60+ that are HUGE. So whats HUGE to you? :D  Yes to my enemies I have smoked the doobage. And yes I am asking this because I have what i think is a small auction up now. :twisted:  :!:

Is this a fill in the blanks thread?

If so I'll go with

"egotistical moron who uses his D&D collection a yard-stick to measure his self worth"



Honestly Maxwell if your posts cannot be more meaningful why don't you just piss off and come back in about 6 years when you graduate High school.

Wow, Maxie. Open mouth, insert collective Acaeum tool. You just stated in one of your auctions that you make $34.97 an hour as a journeyman HVAC tech. Did WoTC lay you off?
See, here's the drawback to lying, Maxine. Now that you have admitted to being a liar, everyone here will question whether or not you actually sent the "missing" modules, especially since you were so quick to give a complete refund. Something to ponder as you gargle bong water. There's nothing wrong with sparking up a joint now and then, but meseems your DNA has been mostly replaced by THC.
Good luck with the auctions!

*determined not to throw shit*

right i think:

1-10 items is a "LOT"

11-30/40 items is "LARGE"

30-40+ items is "HUGE" or whatever you want to call it...

i think "huge lot" and its 4 items is hilarious :)

It's all semantics.  There's no standard definition of "huge", just like the prefix "mega-" is horribly abused in modern English.  

I think it's safe to say that "huge" ought to refer to more than one or two decimal digits -- more than you can count reliably from a distance with the naked eye.  So at a bare minimum, I'd say "huge" > 100.

Then what does "massive" apply too.

Something with mass.  They're all annoyingly relative terms.

30 items is huge, 60 items is massive.

Definitions of huge:

Unusually great in size or amount or degree or especially extent or scope.

Example:

The mole (abbreviation, mol) is the Standard International (SI) unit of material quantity. One mole is the number of atoms in precisely 12 thousandths of a kilogram (0.012 kg) of C-12, the most common naturally-occurring isotope of the element carbon. This number is equal to approximately 6.022169 x 10^23, and is also called the Avogadro constant.

The mole is the only fundamental SI unit that is dimensionless. That means it represents a simple numerical quantity or value; it is a term similar in nature to "dozen" (meaning 12) or "gross" (meaning 144). But 1 mol is, unlike a dozen or a gross, an incomprehensibly large number. Written out in decimal form, it appears as 602,216,900,000,000,000,000,000. Envision a huge cubical box measuring about 84 kilometers (84 km) on each edge. Then imagine that box being neatly packed full of sand-grain-size cubes measuring a millimeter (1 mm) on an edge. If this were done, the box would contain roughly 1 mol of cubes. 8O

Very good, but you clearly meant 6.022169 x 10^23.  Without the caret it's a little ambiguous.

Ah! I see what's happenned here.... someones opened a portal into the advanced molecular mathematics board. This is kinda cool... 8O

Seems like someone just busted out the old chem books.  Me personally, I prefer to look at from a philosophical point of view:

The term "HUGE" is relative based on point of perspective.  As an ant, I would consider an apple huge, however if I was an elephant, I would consider an apple very small.

....drifting...  :idea:
What if the earth was actually an atom in a much larger molecule that we consider the universe... and what if an atom is actually a small planet in a very small universe...


Sorry. I'm back  :)

That's funny... I was having a conversation this guy, Bruce, and he was saying his wife says that all the time! Apparently he doesn't think it's that big, but she points out that he's looking at it from above, over his considerable stomach, and that it looks bigger from the front.

I don't think he buys that for one minute.. :wink:

according to the HIGHLY RESPECTED BLACKMOOR, I have just listed a massive lot. Happy to have surpassed HUGE! 8)

I didn't need to read that in his auction to question whether or not he sent me what I earned.  One of the things I've picked up in my travels on certain sites outside of here is how to pick out those who have honor and integrity.

Maxwell has neither.  I won't wish him good luck.  I will hope though that he gets absolutely EVERYTHING he deserves.
