I've seen that before... insanity. I know a couple people with eBay addictions, but that's just nuts.

1990 XR7 3.8L SC - Still waiting for time and money to come together at the same time..
1991 Ford Ranger
2003 Ford Escape


It's an MN-12 thing... you wouldn't understand.

Cowboys still do ride horses. Only today it's not just one at a time.
It's 454, each one alive, penned in 8 cylinders. Eating asphalt. Kicking dust.
Screaming out loud, "Don't you dare stop for water."

Now I don't feel so bad for holding onto some junk that is in my house, lol... It could always be worse.

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

lol. Ebay is pretty much my solo job, my business is ebay based, and I run three full time ebaystores for clients.

The good part is that I don't have my house full of ****, most if it is dropshipped from a warehouse.

Those buttplug looking things on the monitor are old glass insulators they used to use on telegraph and telephone lines. I'm assured they also are quite valuable.

But they actually are valuable to some people. Unfortunately, I doubt she will sell them.

That whole house looks like a serious fire hazzard, though.

Night was dark, but the sky was blue,
Down the alley, the ice-wagon flew,
Heard a bump, and somebody screamed,
You should have heard just what I seen.

That's what I was thinking, talk about a fire load!

Why do I get the feeling my house will look like that in 10 years? Oh yeah.. because my gradma's house is /almost/ that bad. BLeh. I come from a family of packrats.

So your the cause of all this. I didn't see any engines sitting around in there but she might have something of yours.

I am going to show this to my wife, so she knows what to expect in 20-25 years. She already suspects it (packrat) but I don't have that much stuff to hoard yet. The bank statements from 1983 when I had .12 cents in the back, and each month, all pages including the flyer since then, multiple banks at the same time, that should clue her in. Once I take that next step and do whatever I need to get Paypal over the 2,000 limit might be my downfall!

Working for UPS year before last, there were two ladies on my run that did nothing but watch the hope shopping networks alllll day long. They'd get at LEAST a dozen boxes a day and the house was absolutely stuffed with boxes of crap

And I thought I was badly addicted.

My mailman and UPS guy hate me. I get about 1 a day on average, sometimes more. Back when I was doing all my big swaps....Springs, Shocks, Rear End, TC, Rims, Tires and so on.....My UPS Guy was miserable, he always looked pissed as he carried down all my ****. I always offered to help, but that never made him happy either.

Thats weird, my fedex guy drops off hazardous airbags, and stuff like that every single day. He rings the bell and jokes with me all the time about 'keeping fedex in business'.
