Thief (2/20)



  1. I've been watching that seller's listings for a while. Forgiving the price, my major concern with those is the stickers -- I've seen many labels ruined over the years removing Record Exchange, CD Exchange, and similar stickers that partially cover the labels. These look much better, but still.... Untested, tons of stickers, high asking price = I've stayed away. Thanks for looking out though.
  2. Persistent and dedicated, though evidently horrible at circling back to update threads. Currently at 233 with something like 25 en-route. Thanks for all the help so far, still going strong!
  3. ah man, he sold to you too! $$$$ transaction gone very well on this end
  4. No objection here. Even playing it as a kid when it came out I was mesmerized.
  5. My luck on Mercari, both as buyer and seller, comes in waves. The people running it are absolute idiots, don’t care, or both. Their customer service is abysmal and like others have said, it’s an environment ripe for deals falling through. I have zero faith in anything close to real-time search results — it’s purely luck if you see something quick enough to grab it (eg maybe you landed on the right server at the right time?). Even then, back door deals hurt man.
  6. I almost posted this word for word. Ditto.
  7. El Topo Some of the scenes and lines from that remain with me, and I watched it exactly once over 5 years ago
  8. Most people earning 200k a year aren’t millionaires
  9. I hadn't heard of this until now -- but wow, what a sight to behold! Mitch Hedberg comes to mind: "Rice is great if you're really hungry and want to eat two thousand of something." I'm definitely not trying to pry yours from your hands -- I fully recognize the desire to pair them with NES consoles But beyond my adoration for the game, including the influence it's had on my life -- I don't know why I'm chasing this with fever... I will say, though, that watching the pile grow is incredibly satisfying. I also make a point to clean them all up as necessary, so it's a whole process. Call it a form of therapy
  10. SMM2 for Switch. I bought a Switch just for this, and I'm not disappointed.
  11. Can a moderator please move this to the "Buying" subforum? I feel like an idiot
