    I value my time, and for me, answering a bunch of emails and driving to meet anyone automatically takes over an hour plus a couple gallons of gas and then I've LOST money. Usually at the $20-$50 dollar range people are looking for deals and it's a huge PIA to just get a straight sale, and have to go through a bunch of idiots inquiries which takes a few minutes each. At least that's my personal results. I've had some really pathetic interactions with people, and it's been very frustrating a few times. One time I sold old polaris ranger axles to someone super super cheap and they thought one was too scrapped up looking after they got home and tried to make me buy them a brand new one. People are fucking insane, and $20 isn't enough for me to deal with that shit.

    I get that cash is tight right now, and in the city it's probably a lot easier to get rid of things quickly. However, if it isn't as easy as pulling into a CVS on my way home and only takes me an extra 10-20 mins, I don't think it's worth it for $20. I actually have a ton of little things right now I don't want and need to get rid of, I think I'm going to do a full blown tag sale when I move in the spring and can get it all organized.

    Seeing how long I can keep stock(ish) OVTuned
    Im on the same page.
    I gave a boat to a close friend after I got sick of dealing with trying to sell it.
    I dont even bother a lot of stuff.
    Either my wife sells it, or, it ends up at goodwill/salvation army/other.

    Good morning all

    Me too. Typically anything that is still in good condition and usable goes to goodwill. I've tried selling on a few boards and its nothing but a hassle. Matter of fact, I have a log splitter that I will have to do something with and lament over the hassle of CL.

    This^^^ 60$ or more I’ll sell it. 20-50 I’ll hold onto for a bit incase a friend wants it. Under 20 I just put in the front yard with a sign free and it’s gone by the evening

    When selling stuff I always use the beer scale..
    if it’s only worth 2 beers I’d rather just buy two beers if it’s worth 5 or more we are talking.
    If it’s worth a weekends worth of beer i have time

    I also always just sell from my house with the doors closed and a lead catapult attached at the hip.
    Never gone through the trouble of going to a parking lot somewhere

    I've done both.

    When I was in Raleigh I did a deal in the middle of a CVS right in front of cameras and the guys used partial counterfeit money. Cops never did shit and I was out a couple hundred dollars. All public places do is knock down the chances of being openly robbed, but if someone wants to be a scumbag they are gonna be a scumbag.

    Exactly I show a few apartments that I own every year or so so I have no trouble with strangers. I typically sort them pretty good over email/phone then choose to have them come in a way where I see them for like 20ft before actually shaking my hand. Only had one real sketchy situation where like 5 dudes got out of a shit box car at once.

    @mach1man001 late to the party on this comment, but I also noticed how my ps wasn’t at its full potential. How did you make out with that pump after draining the res and replacing fluid?

    I'm actually quite surprised at how much better it feels. It's not perfect but it is probably about 90% better and that is only from 1 reservoir worth of fluid being exchanged. I'm going to do it again sometime this week. I had just wanted to drive around for a week so that the new fluid would get all throughout the system

    IMO the method you used to refresh the PS fluid is better than trying to remove the lines to the pump to try an get every drop replaced. There is a zero% chance you will have a problem using your method as opposed to the other way.

    Uughh...I am 100% sure after watching the game last night that this must be Brady's final season and the pats are screwed next year...he was AFRAID last night. All 3 of his passes on that final drive were high because he was ducking away as he threw the ball. The final throw of the game was the worst. From the fly cam behind him you can see Edelman is open, there are no defenders between Brady and Edelman and it's a straight shot 20 yard laser to him and he can fall backwards into the endzone...Instead Brady shies away from the rush and falls back to the ground as he throws (like a 5 year old does when he's making a throw to home in little league and launches a grenade throw to the pitchers mound)...It left the pass high (about the 8th off target high pass...That was a truly pathetic offense that did nothing to reward a defense that only gave up 17 points in spite of the turnovers...
    go to 10:36 and watch him dive to the ground...

    Didn't the Pats stink it up yesterday...Man. I finally get a chance to sit down and watch a full game for the first time in probably a month, and they do that to me. :facepalm:

    On the other hand, I finally got around to putting the '84 on Craigslist last night. I finished the ad around 8:30 and by 9:30 I'd already gotten two calls and an email about it.

    It was a disgusting display. 16 penalties or something? They really were just a complete mess out there.

    Yeah,
    FOURTEEN penalties i think...zero offense...The o-line was fine when they weren't false starting...There were at least two more false starts the Refs missed...
    Made a disgusting GIF...You can see him cower

    I think that some of the penalties were BS, personally. Even the announcers were questioning some of the calls on the field, and on at least one of the false start penalties they'd show the replay and you could actually watch a Steelers player move, a Patriots lineman would flinch, and the flag would get thrown against New England for a false start.

    Edit- and that Pass Interference call in the first half against Jones was a total crap call.

    Yes, that was really a bad call, I agree. I didn't see anything there but whatever.
