What the hell is wrong with people?!?

This is an eBay ad that I stumbled across tonight.

eBay Ad

They are completely trying to play the "sympathy" angle on this one. What makes it worse is that the whole story is made up anyway. If you surf through their items that they have sold recently, most of them are iPods.

wtf is wrong with people like this??

Personally I have no darn idea. Basically this is one of a number of motorcycle boards with some variation in subjects & the same is done on other decent boards.

Mind you the winter season has moved in on many of us, & especially us in the more northern parts of the States to some of us Cdns that know more about winterizing bikes around latter part of October & not come out again till sometime in latter March or April. So the interest in m/cing has been totalled by 95% on this board.

As for IPods or such I have never taken an interest in them for they keep on changing as quickly as most people go to bed & wake up to find another form.

While some find EBay to be a good way to m/c parts or you name it while some of us have never touched Ebay.

So it is up to you & what you might sum it up to. Just that this is a dead time of m/cing in North Amercia bar some of those in Flordia, Texas, or California.

And malfunctioning ones, at that. Damn nutcases.

lol I read through every one of them, too. I thought for a minute that we had a genuinely heroic person who sacrificed many iPods for the greater good of saving people. As it turns out, that was the only one. The rest are just simply broken for no reason. This seller seems to be quite set on selling all of them "To maybe buy a new iPod" though.

WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

Does this post constitute trolling or post whoring?

No no... I have no doubt you were checking out the shirtless men at the pool.

If it's on the Internet, it must be true.
