- Drunk purchases…
Bought a really rare Park vintage guitar amp for a fare wedge of cash.
Drunk, at 1am off ebay.
Phoned my mate who is an expert at these things. he said ” Yes, theres hardly any as they’re shit and no one bought them, thats why they’re rare”
Lost a wack re-selling it.
I dont even play guitar 🙁Posted 2 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
Not drunk but very hungover after a lot of cash and carry own brand gin. A 1972 MGB GT. As my only car for my 25,000 mile/year commuting requirements. For more money than I’ve spent on a car before or since. Paid for on terms that meant I then needed to continue driving it as my only car for the next 6 years.Posted 2 years agoboggie62Member
A couple of years ago I spotted a very nice new MTB frame on ebay listed by a bike shop at a decent price. Made a really cheeky offer that just happened to expire on Christmas day evening. I expected a counter offer but heard nothing until to my surprise the offer was accepted with minutes to go. I did wonder if the Christmas spirit was flowing.Posted 2 years agosmiththemainmanMember
Not actually a purchase but waking up on a Sunday and having a flash back , quickly logging into betting account then having to watch Chelsea at home to Villa a game I had no prior interest in to see if Villa were really good value as a kind mate kept saying at 7 to 1 for my biggest ever single bet of £150. I’ve never bet sincePosted 2 years agotrail_ratMember

6 years….I’d have given it 6months tops….6weeks if it was post 1980…..Posted 2 years agocentralscrutinizerMember
A Fender Strat Delux which I’ve hardly played.
If anyone wants to sell on any of those drunken Strats or SGs for a bargain price to a good home – PM me!
I’m up for a sale or swap. I’ll need to check exactly which of the million variations of model my SG is when I get home in a month (its a ’61 reissue though)Posted 2 years agojivehoneyjiveMember
I call bullshit.
Everyone knows Santa Carla is the murder capital of the world.
That was the 80s you dingbat… the vampires became considerably more peacful after the stakes were raised.
Truth be told, I didn’t know that Flint was set to be the most violent city when I bought the house; I used a zip code search engine which showed a massive amount of statistics, from percentages of people who finished high school, to average rents and standards of sanitation.
The Zip Code I ended up with wasn’t particularly violent, but in my inebriated state, I forgot to check google streetview… the next day when I’d sobered up and the Ebay Auction had finished, I discovered the homies in gang colours I refer to in my original post.
Sure enough, if you type in ‘906 East York Ave, Flint, MI’ into google maps, then do the time slider thingy with streetview, you should what was for a while at least, my very own crackhouse.Posted 2 years agomuddygroundMember
A week in Yugoslavia from a mate one night. We flew out the next morning, so it seemed prudent just to carry on drinking through the night. Got to the airport very drunk, so we all went to the pub…. held the plane up for an hour. Carried on drinking on the plane, got there and I ambled off on my own and got on the first bus I saw with no idea where the hotel was….Posted 2 years ago
