Yeah I caught the buy now price. That has got to be some serious self confidence to even bother asking.

I always enjoy a good belly laugh. I can't tell if this is for real or a joke.

And then there's this:

Oh for heaven's sake. I wonder what the inspiration for it was?

It's OK trekriffic, No need to blow. He used "like" as a simile, not as a word/pause filler.

Strangely enough, this design does not bother me. It's a clever kitbash, not one I would use, mind you, but it's better than others I have seen on eBay. Now the thing going for $152 does bother me.

The scroll wheel died on my trackball. Bummer. It's not too much of an inconvenient as I have a second one, but the model isn't made anymore.

Right now, my biggest pet peeve is the asshats in my subdivision who are launching fireworks IN VIOLATION OF THE SUBDIVISION RULES! This is a friggin' mobile home park, for cripes' sake. These homes are tinderboxes on pillar foundations! And you're firing off air-burst fireworks? Frackin' morons!

Reason #284,576 why I'm very, very happy that we're closing on our new house next Friday and getting the hell outta this place by the end of the month!

Here's hoping you can make it to the end of the month- unscorched.

I can grok completely where you're coming from, after my PTSD reaction a couple of years ago to what sounded like 21 mortar rounds in a row fired off at 2 in the morning at what sounded like just outside my bedroom window.

Most times around this holiday it's rained within a couple of days- not this year. It's like a tinderbox now. The local fire department is pleading for folks to be sane. (Yeah Right!). I fully expect the local ER's to do their usual brisk business involving the lost of a finger or two and all degrees of burns.

My neighbors have the British on the ropes and should drive them into the sea by about 2 AM. I bought a new sword instead.
