This is an auction I just put up for a pair of NVG.
It was written to amuse.
And to sell a pair of night vision goggles.

You know you want to be a ninja.
You are just a few clicks away from Real Ultimate Power.

Dude, that is the funniest thing I've read all day, and I've needed a good laugh.

Thanks. That's awesome.

My mailman doesn't come around at night. I guess I can't use them. Good luck anyway selling them.

That is the best eBay spiel I have read so far. If I was a perv, I would buy those goggles [Big Grin]
Well done [Applause]

That was one of the funniest posts I have seen on e-bay. You should get a buyer just for effort. [Big Grin]

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

I think I may know that judge, so I'm not bidding. Great listing though.

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

I have 5 watchers, and 133 different views, so it's all goign according to plan.
All I want to do is sell them

Sell them and be REDICULOUS. Being rediculous is important.

The spiel is very funny. Very funny indeed. You should mention how useful it could be for teenage boys to help them sneak into their girlfriends houses without being detected.

But mate, which poor wookiee did you kill to make that jacket in your profile pic? [Big Grin]

Something else for you to sell: geniune wookiee fur coat [evil]

Do I understand correctly that you bought these goggles a month ago and now you're selling them?

And yes, quite crazy coat! It looks too warm for the sunshine.

I just read it again, and it's still cool! Seriously, that's awesome. [Applause]

I'm not sure whether it would attract me to or repel me from the "Place bid" button, though. At least you have some nice feedback.

Yes, I purchased these goggles a month ago.
The original seller didn't say they had a broken IR illuminator.
So you can imagine my disappointment.

They are assholes, and refuse to allow me to return the item. Rather than deal with the whole ebay fraud thing, I'm hoping to sell them for what I paid.

This time with an Honest Ad.


The Trench coat that my friend is wearing is my first attempt at a stylish Ghillie. Came out well, all things considered. It's looking awfully ragged, but that's becasue it's seen a lot of airsoft battles.
It took me a few weeks at a couple of hours/ day.
