The Last Item You Purchased?

What was it? Whether it was a packet of chips, a video game, a CD, a magazine, a gun, a flower, a yacht or an island, post it here.

My most recent purchase was a CD - Dream Theater's "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence".

    That's odd, you have the same birthday as my mom.

  • @GuruGuru214 said: You Googled for the accents on "crème brûlée" (copied and pasted from yours), but not to find out what ramekins are? Impressive.



    Well my parents used to own a restaurant (and I worked there briefly) so I have some knowledge of stuff like that. Plus I own some ramekins myself. Also, my mother makes a good crème brûlée.

    Also, I feel a bit better with my brother's birthday being a massive 9 days before Christmas after reading the last few posts.

    I share MY birthday with an aunt!

    ...can't trump being a middle child, though.

    I'm a middle child. Also, have you ever been so annoyed by an avatar that you create an AdBlock instance just for that one avatar? I did and I won't tell anyone who it was for fear I'd get banned. Fuck it, you can Skype it out of me.

    That's odd as sin, you're like the bizzarro transatlantic me.

    And you just have the same name as my brother, christian and surname. What's next? Jake Rodkin was everyones father and we all grew up at the same orphanage but somehow we all forgot?

    That's a lot more likely than a lot of the gubbins I've seen occur around this forum. For example, my once infamously long signature has been truncated. BEHOLD IT!

    Limbo on Steam. Knowing my luck, it'll end up in an Indie Bundle before long, but meh. I've spent more on less.

    Also, will people stop letting me have the highest bid for a day on eBay only to appear out of nowhere and outbid me 30 seconds before I win it? It's happened twice now and it does nothing but piss me the fuck off. I do have a limit to what I'll pay, people! Stop leaving it to the last second to find out what it is! Gah!

    Heh. You just don't seem to have much strategy.

    My advice dude. Never bid on an item till the last 30 or so seconds.
    (Unless you can't watch it to the end, then you may get lucky)

    Just add it to the watch list, and watch it when it gets near the end.

    You have to be a shark on ebay. And don't be afraid to haggle on a buy it now.
    (though most of the time, people just have unrealistic expectations on the value of the stuff they sell...)

    Its either that, or do a buffer bid at the last minuite or so.
    Anticipate what your opponents will bid, and bid a few moves ahead.
    (I've gotten some good stuff that way, countering those last seconders! XD)

    Ah, but if I try that, the price always goes above my limit. I just can't win either way!
