Apparently he couldn't figure out a keyword spam for the bobbleheads though.
This poor guy finally had enough.
Correct spelling please !!!
Chest of drawers NOT chester drawers
Foosball table NOT Fuse ball table
Wrought Iron NOT rot iron or rod iron
Lengths of wood NOT links of wood
and my favorite...... Adarounddeck chair
I sent him an email with some of my collection.
I learned that if you try real hard, you can fit a 12" woofer where a horn tweeter was, and still have some slot to spare!
People don't realize the original link to the ad is in the reply to a cl ad. They say, "i replied to several ads, which one was yours again?"
OMG who does that? Who goes to that much trouble to eff up a speaker? How is that wired in? What must that sound like?
So many questions.
Asking questions the beginning of learning is.
I've learned that they make TVs really big now....
Downsizing as in selling the ballpark?
I've seen some 50-footers but a 73-footer takes the award son!
I learned that certain speakers are better than others.
Certain Vega Speakers - $35
I prefer the sound of Chevy Vegas, thanks.
Take plenty of cash.
I have had times when the seller was willing to sell a better item than what I went there for or make a package deal.
They will say things like, oh, I have another set downstairs but I'm not sure if I want to sell them.
That usually means they want to sell them.
Recent deal went like this,
Okay these are the speakers and I also have another set that I may want to sell, they call em' "Penguins" or something like that.
Let's see em! ;-)"
I learned that I am either running a charity...or people have no idea how to read maps.
Guy emails me about a nice monitor I am trying to unload for $80. Says he can only afford $45, lives in Derry (~1.5 hours away), and has no vehicle to pick it up. Did he really expect me to hop in the car and make a 3 hour round trip for $45?
I picked up a fully functional Sansui 9090db like that. Went for something else, saw the 9090 under the coffee table covered in dust, and asked how much. Bundled it with the Sansui I did go to see, and walked out with both for $50 each.
Today I learned things made in 1980 are 'antique'.
"Antique Hitachi Amplifier HA-3700 Manufactured 1980"
They actually sounded amazed that this ancient thing still works.
Antique, eh? ... I'm so old.
Today? Well, there's this. I'm guessing a whiskey ticket = DUI?
Awesome stero system

not mine, no affiliation
I picked up a pair of Cervin Vega HED 1230's along with several other goodies on Craig's List. The cabinets were in very decent shape - didn't have time to test - besides, the owner said they sounded "real good".
On reaching home, I removed the grill to find a very unusual "re-foam job"
Never trust a speaker grill.
>>pioner duble din touch screen with navagation deck half ferrit cap
"Half ferrit cap"!
Good one coogar!
Not Craigslist, but this I found humorous. I AM NOT AFFILIATED!
I am selling this SL-1900 for repair since the tonearm does not go down to play records, the lever that controls it will not bring it down even when it's in the down position. Aside from those problems the player works and both speeds function as well as the speed adjustments. It has a Shure M95ED cartridge installed although the stylus will likely need to be replaced, I've been able to push it down enough to hear it play a record but it doesn't sound very clear
