None of those sissy "grande! Frappe! Latte!" drinks for me!
Besides, I'd rather have a large Tim Horton's black coffee than something poured by a "Barista" any day!  :P
My motto is "If it's not strong enough to stain wood, it's not coffee!"  :D

I agree, but I will occasionally use cream if I'm too impatient to let it cool.  My preference is cold, black, and as close to the consistency of pitch as possible.

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

The photos are the funny part.  Are they accurate images of the last thing an adventurer sees when charging into a dragon's lair?

One of my alternate eBay accounts won this.  Shipping was discounted to Media Mail, so it's a $15 Rules Compendium and whatever the other bits are.

The seller seemed nice enough, but what kind of monster uses "unusual horse toy straps to your leg for your child to" as an auction title?

Yes, it's safe for work, though I didn't think before I clicked.   :oops:

Clearly what the seller means is that he stores it near a new copy. :lol:

(I've found that abcdex is sometimes a little generous with quality ratings, but that's just ridiculous.)

Excellent physical condition. Excellent copy in general and has no writing or marks other than a previous owner's name on the front cover and on the booklet cover.


Well, it is still vaguely rectangular...

This doesn't really qualify as laughable but it's close enough.



I really don't hold much regard for sellers who make it the responsibility of the buyer to find out the details of the item being sold.  Are the sets complete???  I guess it's up to me to ask.



The laughable part is the sentence "You may not make a claim with Paypal as my items are sold as is".  :roll:

The rectangular prism of a book is of course 'the lozenge-shaped world of Glorantha.'

I think the only time that strategy (saying the item is sold as-is) would be a device that is advertised as non-operational. E.g., I sold a couple of minidisc recorders that were kaputt, and I very clearly advertised them as such. Because they were sold as-is, someone couldn't come back and say "they don't work!" But, I guess it's that the item has to fit the description.

The thing that really tees me off is this seller (and others) makes it incumbent on the buyer to find out what they are bidding on.  I mean really, it should be up to the seller to describe what they are selling (I can't tell what's in the boxes) otherwise he is running nothing more than a mystery grab bag auction and should denote that in the title. :x
