very good point made above there.

mind you saying that, if you REALLY want to prove how tough you are, you can come with me for my annual ultra-marathon in the sahara desert? its only a mere 150 miles across some of the most ridiculous terrain youre like to ever go across, in heat approaching 50C.

you do THAT and THEN i will tell you that you are tough.

nuff said on this matter methinks...back onto more important subjects, such as how i get to prise the remaining beholder issues off other collectors :)

Did anyone even read past this sentence?  Please.  The guy who doesn't "give two shits" about D&D likes to checkup on the forum?  Everyone wave goodbye to Cougie's sock puppet and move on......

killjoy, thats hardcore! hats off to you, if you can do that.  i ran a marathon and that was hard enough. its like a full time job training for that type of thing. i can't imagine running one in the dessert heat. i had a teacher in middle school that qualified for the iron man triathalon. the guy would ride from south texas to austin every weekend. i think he said he was riding his bike like 30-60 miles a few times a week.

and that was before class.....wow! 8O


to answer your question  thai boxing, brazillian jiu jitsu, judo, wrestling, boxing. used to do 'take ones do' when growing up. ive trained with some really good guys. jacare c, big nog, little nog, ricardo murgel. which fighter/instructor do you want to know? the list is endless. ive competed in pan am games, multiple naga's, mundials. dunno if youve heard of it. i didn't win it but its top level. ive done private sessions with many pro mma fighters but that doesn't really mean anything. its just refining your technique. those guys fitness level is comparitive to olympic athletes.


i would let you know where i train, however, that would disclose my location. sorry.



atom, i have tried playing d and d when i was younger. i played it a few times with a buddy and his dad. he actually had a large table that he had every carved, hand painted puter figurine out there(not literally but he had a giant collection). we would use the figurines like characters and such. it was a very cool table. it would foldout into this giant board i guess you could call it. i tried playing a few times but never really got into it.  and ....i am relaxed.

xaxaxa, i just read your post earlier, i agreed with it. i thought you had a good point that the guy knows how to work the system. that is all. i figured, this post and probably many others have been up for some time. if not a year or more. if the guy screwed over so many of you, why wouldn't you take it a step further(collectively)? like try and pursue it to court or something? maybe take legal action? i mean if the combined amount of loss is high enough isn't that in itself enough to take someone to court?  if the guy isn't really breaking ebay rules, but working the system, then i guess this isn't an option for you. and you should blame ebay in my opinion.  i have no idea. if all these claims are in the hundreds, wouldn't that be enough people to get a legitimate claim against someone at ebay or paypal or whatever it may be? i am no lawyer but it seems that, the number you are talking about would be enough bad claims to have something done about it. and if hundreds of claims are true, wouldn't that amount to a large sum of money?

kosh, your right hooray for guns!

atom, i didn't stereotype you guys. im sure there are a few of you out there who are pro assasins. i am sorry the warcraft southpark episode has clouded my mind and made me stereotype all d and d players. i apologize...lol.  i simply said, i didn't like d and d, it didn't mean that i am opposed to it, nor do i think everyone is a dork who plays it. as i stated before, one of my good buddies is very into d and d. he tries to get me to play, i just don't. and yes i am guilty of calling him a dork but its all in good humor.


i am no expert martial artist, i didn't claim to be. im not trying to convince you that i am. i think most expert martial artists that i have met are well over 40. and even though they are old guys, don't underestimate them. i know a guy who is close to 60 years old and does bjj fulltime. plays football, runs marathons. he is one of the most active older guys i have met. i would not screw with him, its scary how dangerous this guy is.

i just thought it would be funny to read the reactions that i would get because initially the reactions i got when i posted were quite funny. that is all. actually, with the first few reactions i had about this idea of me being linked to some international dungeons and dragons selling ring was entertaining at best. rather out in left field but A+ for effort!

but imagine this, im little old me sitting at the desk working. i buy and sell something on ebay for a friend. someone on ebay contacts me about the sale i just made and links me to this site. i come to this website, i see my name and my ebay sale all over this forum. i get a bit concerned. then i post. everyone starts accusing this accusing that. then when i try and explain it logically. everyone has these theories.  then all of the sudden everyone is linking me to some "conspiracy" that i run some american dungeons and dragons store or something. this is why i typed ' you are wasting your time'. because you are. its rather funny that someone would think about this shit all day.....

Unless I'm mistaken he was not a "friend" before, just someone who had contacted you.

read this

VATICAN CITY (AP) -- Got road rage? The Vatican on Tuesday issued a set of "Ten Commandments" for drivers, telling motorists to be charitable to others on the highways, to refrain from drinking and driving, and to pray you make it before you even buckle up.

An unusual document from the Vatican's office for migrants and itinerant people also warned that automobiles can be "an occasion of sin" -- particularly when they are used for dangerous passing or for prostitution.

It warned about the effects of road rage, saying driving can bring out "primitive" behavior in motorists, including "impoliteness, rude gestures, cursing, blasphemy, loss of sense of responsibility or deliberate infringement of the highway code."

It urged motorists to obey traffic regulations, drive with a moral sense, and to pray when behind the wheel.

Cardinal Renato Martino, who heads the office, told a news conference that the Vatican felt it necessary to address the pastoral needs of motorists because driving had become such a big part of contemporary life.

He noted that the Bible was full of people on the move, including Mary and Joseph, the parents of Jesus -- and that his office is tasked with dealing with all "itinerant" people -- from refugees to prostitutes, truck drivers to the homeless.

"We know that as a consequence of transgressions and negligence, 1.2 million people die each year on the roads," Martino said. "That's a sad reality, and at the same time, a great challenge for society and the church."

The document, "Guidelines for the Pastoral Care of the Road," extols the benefits of driving -- family outings, getting the sick to the hospital, allowing people to see other cultures.

But it laments a host of ills associated with automobiles: Drivers use their cars to show off; driving "provides an easy opportunity to dominate others" by speeding; drivers can kill themselves and others if they don't get their cars regular tuneups, if they drink, use drugs or fall asleep at the wheel.

It also pointed the finger at traffic problems particular to Rome, including "minicars" that teens can drive without full driving licenses, and "the reckless use of motorbikes and motorcycles."

It called for drivers to obey speed limits and to exercise a host of Christian virtues: charity to fellow drivers, prudence on the roads, hope of arriving safely and justice in the event of crashes.

And it suggested prayer might come in handy -- performing the sign of the cross before starting off and saying the Rosary along the way. The Rosary was particularly well suited to recitation by all in the car since its "rhythm and gentle repetition does not distract the driver's attention."

The document is intended for bishops conferences around the world, and as such offered recommendations for their pastoral workers, including setting up chapels along motorways and having "periodic celebration of liturgies at major road hubs, motorway restaurants and lorry parks."

'Drivers' Ten Commandments'
The "Drivers' Ten Commandments," as listed by the document, are:

1. You shall not kill.

2. The road shall be for you a means of communion between people and not of mortal harm.

3. Courtesy, uprightness and prudence will help you deal with unforeseen events.

4. Be charitable and help your neighbor in need, especially victims of accidents.

5. Cars shall not be for you an expression of power and domination, and an occasion of sin.

6. Charitably convince the young and not so young not to drive when they are not in a fitting condition to do so.

7. Support the families of accident victims.

8. Bring guilty motorists and their victims together, at the appropriate time, so that they can undergo the liberating experience of forgiveness.

9. On the road, protect the more vulnerable party.

10. Feel responsible toward others.

Makes me glad I worship Baalzebuul. The rules are SO much easier.


The Infernal Drivers' Ten Commandments:

1. Thou shalt kill if thou feelest like it, providing thou can get away with it.

2. Thine road is a means of relieving aggressive tensions; drivest thou accordingly.

3. Rudeness hath a virtue all its own.

4. Fuck thy neighbor; keep to and protect thine own self.

5. The better the car, the better the beaver thou shalt scorest.

6. Care not for the young; they are weak sheep.

7. See rule number 4.

8. Forgive not thy offender; attack and slay him at the earliest opportunity.

9. Thou shalt drive aggressively; the road is full of defensive drivers, allowing thee to take advantage of their passiveness.

10. See rule number 4.

I recently saw a special on the psychology of driving that explained a lot about road rage.
Your mind registers people cutting you off or passing you as a "defeat" and if you do the same to others as a "victory".
The problem occurs with the fact that your "victories" are behind you and soon fade from your memory.
Your "defeats" are constantly ahead of you in your line of sight and serves as a reinforcement to the "primitive" part of your brain of your "loss".
The road rage occurs when you allow those primitive instincts overrule your reason.
Individuals who allow those primitive instincts to overcome their reason immediately look for some way to retaliate or obtain revenge on the other driver.

Actually, I register someone cutting me off as a life-threatening act that could possibly have resulted in the injury or death of my wife and/or kid.
The problem is not road rage. It is drivers not paying attention, period. Cell phones, makeup, radios, etc.

So, about danteiscougar:

Given the bad experiences that so many people have had with Kitty, it is dismaying that stronger actions have not been taken. Example:


Find an auction that Coug won that "disappeared". Speak with the seller and see if there were any books with identifying marks; names, discolorations, tears etc. Then scan coug's auctions until you see the inevitable "VGC" item. Contact the winner of the auction and ask if the item has the identifying marks. If so, voila! Proven mail fraud, a criminal offense in both the US and the UK.

Of course, and at that point if you as the offended driver take any action that escalates the situation, you are placing your passengers at further risk.

As many people that pass me every day driving like they are auditioning for the Indianapolis 500...it doesnt surprise me one bit.  I can agree with the "road rage" psychology as I have on several occasions felt really good after passing some jerkwad after they cut me off a mile or two before.

I read an article a couple of months ago that listed the worst and best cities to drive in.  It shocked me that DFW was on the top ten best cities list.  The guy who wrote the article has either never driven on DFW's freeways during rush hour or the traffic and people in the cities on the "worst" list are nastier than I can possibly imagine.

How many water damaged D1-D2 mods do you suppose Coogie has?

And mint shrink wrapped Gates of Firestone Peak with uncut counters & maps (i should think so if it is shrink wrapped) .

Tsr 2e ref DM Screen & TTT adventure. (not as specific as above)

And to compond this he resold all my items two months after i won them?
These were all sold on the same day ( 23 may)

Here was my win,

Then after saying my goods were lost in the post he resells two months later,

And here is another one of mine relisted at the same time as above,

And lo Coogie pulled an exact copy from his corpulent ass!

Is there any point reporting this to e-bay? Has the twat got away again?

The next step, Atom, would be to either have the buyer send you a description, buy the item from him, or buy the item from Retard, preferably under a different eBay name or thru a friend/Acaeum member. Then send all the info you can to eBay, tell them you plan on initiating a criminal investigation with both your local police and Retard's local police. They may or may not help. Then do just that; bring everything to the cops. If your town is too small to have a computer crimes department, you can go to a larger town or the state capital and file it. If you do, I would also get as much info on other auctions he has fucked people on. Bring printouts, url's, names, the works.
Send the same info to Retard's home town bobbies. You can never give too much info, only too little. Even if you think something is worthless, they may not.
Chances are very good that they will pursue it. I've had extensive experience with law enforcement/computer forensics departments, being a network engineer, and they will almost always follow a case to its conclusion. You may think to yourself "They won't care about a foreign eBay scammer", but in fact that is one of their favorite captures. Why? Because every year, they have to validate the budget allotment that the town and state give them for computer crimes, and the bigger/more exotic the bust, the better they look.
If you do, I'll officially change your name to At 'em.
I propose this: Everyone interested in skinning the cat should donate an item. Whoever is clearly the most instrumental in pelting him gets the items. I think it would be a fun and productive game.

Sorry about the dead link. Ok then, on the bottom of your most recent post click on the Profile button. Then click on find all posts by danteisevil

Almost all posts before April 30th has been edited to just two words "mindless babble".

My question is why would you go through the effort of editing most of your previous postings?
I'm not that curious about your motives, just saying that action by itself is quite unusual.

ah ok i see. yeah i did that because it was pointless arguing before. everytime i posted something, people just started coming up with these off the wall ideas that i have some connection to the guy whom i sold my ebay auction to. i found it easier to erase these things, rather than get mad about it. at the time, i was getting very irritated, so i just did it so i wouldn't keep posting. not much more to it than that.

    I find it easier just to ignore your blatherings rather than process them...but then, dang, the guy who doesn't give "two shits" about D&D keeps posting...andposting...and posting....
  I hear Cougie needs his wang fondled...Dante, could you please just get back there and leave us alone? That way the only "connection" between him, and you, is your hand on his member.
