Silly Small Ads

Silly Small Ads

Why would you buy a chair, when you could be opulant and buy a throne instead? Isn't a vase a bit boring, how about buying an alien crystal skull instead? When I sell my items on the small ads system where I work, I find exciting ways of advertising them for sale rather than just run of the mill ways of selling them. This makes my adverts stand out, and provides some entertainment for everyone else. So I thought I'd directorise them, so that people who I don't work with can also see them.

So Many Ramekins!

2019-05-16 16:00:00

There are like, ramekins, just, absolutely everywhere, they're all over the place as though some demonic ramekin laden afterlife for the evil had spawned into the real world and started flooding the world with ramekins. For that is how many there are, such is the ramekenicity of the quantity of ramekins.

There are glass ramekins and clay ramekins, you can take your pick.

They're mostly from desserts that I've bought during my existence, but they're quite nice so it would be a shame to throw them away if someone had a use for them as ramekins.

If you would like any of these, just email me and tell me how many you want and I'll see if I can find that number in the giant mountain of ramekins.

Note, these are ramekins, and should not be confused with Ramachandran plots, which are a way of predicting protein sequence secondary structure.

Non IAAF compliant disci, with boxes

2019-05-09 15:17:00

IAAF regulations specify that a senior men's discus should be 2kg, and a senior women's discus be 1kg.

These disci are significantly lighter than this which means that my army of discus throwers that are going to specifically win the discus at the Olympics will be poorly equipped. Plus I prefer the hammer throw, or even better the C1 1000m!

However a fascinating thing happened when I placed these disci into the optical drive of my computer, I ended up with audio, and audiovisual entertainment, which is very good.

They also come with boxes which tell you some stuff about the contents of the disci.

Please see attached lists for the disci. All disci are £1 unless otherwise stated. If you would like any of them, please email me and I will be pleased to sell them to you.

CDs and DVDs need to deploy!

2019-04-24 14:31:00

Deploy deploy! The Jem'Hadar are fearsome warriors who deploy into combat zones and fight in order to protect the Dominion, which is really just a power structure to protect the Changelings from solids. Because of their fearsome nature, and the fact they protect the Dominion, Canada should have a special forces unit also called the Jem'Hadar, in honour of the fact that the original Star Trek captain, William Shatner, is Canadian.

Like the Jem Hadar's deployment into the Alpha quadrant, these media have to be deployed too, so they're for sale. They're £1 each unless otherwise stated. Please see the attached files for lists of CDs and DVDs.

If you've got no idea what the Jem'Hadar are, I suggest you buy the complete series of Star Trek Deep Space Nine where you will discover what they are. It also features Nicole de Boer, who is also Canadian, but not as a Jem'Hadar.

Not on these lists I also have "100 Million Bon Jovi Fans Can't Be Wrong", a limited edition collection of unreleased Bon Jovi songs, including early versions of hits such as Someday I'll Be Saturday Night, and Always. I'm looking for £10 for it.

If you would like any of these, please email me and I will be most pleased to sell these to you.

CDs and DVDs for sale!

2019-04-11 16:33:00

I still have a vast quantity of discs to sell. Each one of these is a line on a form which someone like the nice woman who caused me to lose my Kozlik's spices will have to read. You don't want her to have to read a form do you? Even if she did cause me to lose my Kozlik's she was very nice and she doesn't deserve to have to read more lines on a form than she has to.

They're also so shiny, and they spin round and round and round and round, really, really, really fast. Of course you don't have to actually watch the spinning, because that spinning turns into sounds and audio-visual delights which you can sit back and enjoy.

If you would like any of these CDs or DVDs, they're £1 each unless otherwise stated. Please email me and I'll be very pleased to sell any, or indeed even all of them, to you.

An external optical drive

2019-04-11 16:33:00

Someone told me they couldn't buy any of my discs because they didn't have an optical disc reader! Outrageous! What a terrible calamity to be the case!

Such an unfortunate scenario really needs to be averted... but how could it be averted?

Luckily, there exists a device that you can use to turn your not an optical disc reading computer, into a genuine bonafide optical disc reading computer!

The person who told me they were unable to play any discs should approach me and ask to buy it, but even if they don't, anyone else can approach me to also buy it and I would like £5 for it. It's really easy to plug in and it works and allows you to play discs. This is really useful if you have a notebook size computer which lacks an internal optical drive.

If you would like it, please email me and I can sell it to you.
