Well I hope you're not referring to the Fetty Missing Eyeball Wap and the Octopus Hat Squid Tentacle Ski Mask.

(save me a seat? :depressed: )

Or the hobo mask. But yes, and I just looked. That seller has some disgusting stuff. I will not be giving him any money.

Seriously? You people must live some very sheltered lives if his other stuff turns you off. I looks like boring middle school anime merch to me.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

This is just the beginning :)
Stupidity has the tendency to spread and to contaminate others which would otherwise still have a savable brain.

It turns me off not because I think it is boring (it is boring and cheap, but that's not what turns me off here) but because I think it's stupid and ridiculous and lethally superficial for any living thing that wants to have its brain taken seriously (unless you really don't give a shit about it). I'd probably end up never even using stuff like that, even if I had gotten it for free and I honestly don't see much more than cheap humor (which imo isn't actually funny...except maybe for the ski mask :P).

This is exactly why. I'm not offended or disgusted by them, moreso annoyed there are people who buy this crap.

It is important to keep the money flowing; this is [in part] how our economy works.

Spending money on hot air isn't what I'd consider a solid economy though, but I do see your point.
I would've preferred money was spend on something that's actually durable or at least productive in some way :P

The throwaway economy is a waste.

I've long since given up on the people around me. I watched a cousin spend $1000 to go on vacation to california, hook up with a dude that wasn't her husband, and then complain she doesnt have money to get her car fixed. So she started a go fund me, crying about the struggles of being a single mom.

The older I get the more I hate people, and love my dog.

So how many outrageously priced items (of say 10 years a go) would now be considered a good deal? ;)

1 GB Conner hard drive for $1440.00. I guess because he slapped a "refurbished" tab on it that justifies the price :lol:

Haha, wow, a Tsunami AT. I used one of those to upgrade my dad's old Micron Milennia P133 (he loved the case) and it always had stability problems. Definitely one of the most flawed Slot 1 AT boards ever produced.

Conner? The last time I heard about the brand is during 486 DX2 66 MHz era. I didn't even know 1 GB Conner hard drive existed.
Never thought this thread would be that long, but now, for something different.....

Same here - I never know Conner's went up to 1 GB. I had one that was about 140 MB. I tossed it. Are they worth over $1K now?

$400 BIN for a Voodoo 5 AGP? Is this their going value now?

Just sharing some info. Conner did SCSI hard drives up to 4.2 GB. See here: http://www.seagate.com/support/disc/manuals/scsi/cfp4207.pdf

And here's someone on ebay selling -six- of them for $35 for the entire lot of 6. http://www.ebay.com/itm/221791637522

Although.. fairly heavy drives. 10 platters each drive and the pdf says they weigh 2.5 lbs each.

Call me suspicious if you want, but for a "new in box" item I see clear marks of use on the slot...
