Colored posting was a mistake.
Luckily I don't see it on my hand-rolled command line text-only GNU/Linux web interface. Check out my other projects on Usenet at gnu.misc.discuss.
Are you one of those "my Awesome distro fits on a floppy disk" kinda faggots?

So since this is basically also the ebay thread, I'll post this here.
Fuckers bidding on stuff are stupid. I was bidding on something that usually goes for 250€+ and set 222€ as my max. I considered that risky because, while not a private person, the account had zero sells, zero ratings and only this one item and was created a few days ago.
It went for 237€. I've opted to go with a fixed price offer from a reputable seller for just ten bucks more.

I hate bidding. Don't have the patience. Get ripped off no matter what.

I stopped bidding awhile ago, it's not worth it to try and save a few bucks. You're better off trying to find someone who will do best offers and hopefully jew them out of some money.

I don't bid on shit. I only buy outright. Auction fags are literally retarded because the shit they bid on almost always ends up over the market price.

Ebay has spoiled me from big box stores though, like I needed a 12v power adapter for my modem, and ebay has them for 7 bucks, meanwhile I went to best buy and have one for now and it costed $20.

I went to a book store today in person and the prices were fucking insane. I don't know how anyone can afford to shop at those motherfuckers. I went on amazon and they had the same fucking book brand new for 50% the price of the brick and mortar store.

That's not hyperbole either. Both stores were selling a brand new book. The physical store wanted $20. Amazon wants $10 and I get prime shipping too.

Even if Amazon a shit, why would anyone pay 2x the price for the same fucking product, AND have to drive out to a physical store?

Books are after all what made Amazon as big as they are. Over here they never charged for shipping on books.

Only thrift stores had uber cheap shitty books. I'm not even sure thats true anymore, I haven't been to one in years.

Those have largely disappeared here outside of large cities. Used to be a good way to get an old Playstation for cheap.
