I am a commercial whore
Well, after looking at my finances, it looks like I'm going to be parting with my collector's edition copy of Surfin' the Highway after all. If any of you guys are interested, you can bid on it at eBay: . Or, if you don't take kindly to my blatant profiteering, feel free to delete this thread.

Samnmax221 07-26-2006 04:54 PM

I'll go for it, untill it get's up into the $50 range

EDIT: OOOOOHHHHH Somebody bought a cellphone

Doomstalk 07-26-2006 05:37 PM

Hence the need for money. My old one gave up the ghost. :\

Samnmax221 07-26-2006 05:41 PM

I'll see about taking it off your hands, although I only have a hundred dollars to my name, a down payment (out of my bank account) on my Explorer, supplementry payments to make on auto insurrance, and no job (Feck you Outback Steakhouse).

itchythesamurai 07-26-2006 05:55 PM

I might join the bidding war, because the hardcover version probably won't be rendered worthless if Purcell rereleases the comics.

milo 07-26-2006 05:55 PM

How much are you hoping it goes for?

You didn't get the job.



itchythesamurai 07-26-2006 06:00 PM

There's a consolation prize to be had, Samnmax! All of the people I know who've ended up working at Outback turned out to be douches. And I wouldn't want that that happening to you!

Samnmax221 07-26-2006 06:00 PM

The jokes on them, now I don't have to schedule around my nice weeklong vacation in the Dells.

Doomstalk 07-26-2006 07:15 PM

I just left my job at Citizens Bank, which is why I'm spontaneously poor. Let me tell you, getting yelled at for a living (customer service) is no fun. Keep your money far far away from Citizens Bank! The likelihood that they'll screw up on you is disturbingly high.

Samnmax221 07-26-2006 07:58 PM

I spose I need it, "Linux in a Nutshell" can wait

SyntheticGerbil 07-26-2006 08:59 PM

The lesson here is not to buy a ****ing cellphone, retard.

Det. Bart Lasiter 07-26-2006 10:25 PM

I have a Motorola RAZR V3. Which means that in addition to making crystal clear phone calls over Cingular's voice and data network, I can also play True Crime: Streets of LA as well as other award-winning mobile games on the go!

Samnmax221 07-26-2006 10:27 PM

I hate cellphones, it pisses me off when I get called at home (Mind you it depends what you're calling about)

Det. Bart Lasiter 07-26-2006 10:29 PM

I wish my phone had an ignore list.

Samnmax221 07-26-2006 10:32 PM

An ignore list isn't going to stop the Army Reserve recruiter (Who I don't even know about) rousting me out of bed at 8 AM to talk about my future.

Det. Bart Lasiter 07-26-2006 10:37 PM

While you're talking about the future bring up stuff about how high the cost of getting a sex change is "nowadays".

Samnmax221 07-26-2006 10:40 PM

I brought up the "Naval Reserve" and after a few more minutes of arguing he left me alone.

Det. Bart Lasiter 07-26-2006 10:43 PM

Yeah I guess that works too. I wouldn't know, I have "emotional problems", so I can't be recruited, so they don't bother calling.

xChri5x 07-27-2006 01:00 AM

The other two pictures of the inside won't enlarge. (on the auction)

itchythesamurai 07-27-2006 09:21 AM

They enlarged just fine for me. I don't ever have a problem enlarging.

Doomstalk 07-27-2006 02:46 PM

I don't ever have a problem enlarging.

Except when it happened in the middle of 5th period math class.

As for the auction, yeah I don't know why the "click to enlarge" doesn't work. I added links to the images instead. You can also find a gigantic (5 mpixel) image of the title page here:

itchythesamurai 07-27-2006 02:52 PM

Oh yeah, that was pretty awkward...hey, waitaminute, who told you about that?! I thought I was wearing concealing pants!

Doomstalk 07-28-2006 05:30 PM

Er... um... ah... I wasn't staring at your crotch, I swear!

Samnmax221 07-29-2006 06:01 PM

$86, goddamnit! I guess my only chance of getting it no involves mail theft.

itchythesamurai 07-30-2006 02:24 AM

Dammit, I guess my only chance of getting it now involves stealing from Samnmax221. Looks like doomstalk should make a pretty penny off of this one though.

Samnmax221 07-30-2006 11:04 PM

Too bad he won't be able to enjoy it, now to find an acceptable firearm.

Doomstalk 07-31-2006 11:11 AM

I will call CSI, and you shall be hounded by forensic detectives who think they're the entire police department.

Samnmax221 07-31-2006 03:30 PM

Good thing it will take them several months to track me down, as this is reality.

Det. Bart Lasiter 07-31-2006 06:16 PM

Someone call the po-leece.

itchythesamurai 07-31-2006 07:04 PM

You leave Sting out of this, Jmac!

Samnmax221 07-31-2006 07:33 PM

While your at it don't stand so close to me

Ray Jones 08-03-2006 10:48 AM

Someone is having dreams, eh?

Samnmax221 08-03-2006 11:04 AM

Mostly involving Uri Geller, it's freaky.

Doomstalk 08-04-2006 10:13 AM

Well, it didn't sell at anything that I thought was worth it (the paperback in that condition goes for $75, so a signed hardcover should go for more than $150), so it gets relisted tonight (also so it doesn't end at stupid o'clock again).

Ray Jones 08-04-2006 11:00 AM

What the??!?!!!

Now who exactly are you, daring to draw this back on topic, huh?

Doomstalk 08-04-2006 10:02 PM

A commercial whore.

Samnmax221 08-04-2006 10:16 PM

Bastard, you wouldn't take my $30!

Doomstalk 08-08-2006 10:32 PM

I got this nasty message from a guy on eBay (quoted in entirety, including the pidgin English):


Yo your a PRICK, making a reserve this high. I contacted purcell himself and he sells books at only 100-120$ I own three of these and the most ive paid is 110$+ shipping and thats with a full front page ART and SIG. you are a sick sick little man. 152$ and not met the reserve last round. GO PUT THIS UP UNDER BUY IT NOW FOR 60000$ if thats what you want. Or look and see the other lame ****s that try to get away with 200-300$ for this book. The have been sitting on buy it now for almost a year. PEACE you lame bastard. Lower your price, steve almost gagged when he heard what you were chargin lol. On another note if you do get your reserve, your still a prick.

I understand that my asking price is high, but the harcover is damn near impossible to find, let alone with a signature. I don't want to be seen as an opprotunistic jerk, though. What do you think? Is he right?

Samnmax221 08-08-2006 10:34 PM

You shoulda taken my $30, you know you want to.

Doomstalk 08-08-2006 11:00 PM

I do, but I've got a family to feed (even if that family is only myself).
