you're smart enough to know it's not about "dumb enough".....

it's nice to see people with wealth cross over into the land of taste.

there is no way on earth to justify spending that much money on that thing. i have no knowledge of this but i'd be willing to bet that Aaron would hand draw you something on a 5 x 7 piece of paper for the same price.

pay via paypal, use credit card,file dispute at the 20 day mark if suspicious. don't deal with noobs. don't trade with noobs. request feedback ahead of time. there are lots of good people 'round here.

there is if you have the cash to burn and you are compelled to own a print that was never for sale and almost impossible to obtain without making an absurd offer.

i agree that it seems insane and it's a very small piece, but it's a tiny masterpiece and a must have for the horkcore.

i think Lance Armstrong bought it since he's gotta burn through the rest of his cash before the Feds seize it.

I can think of worse things to spend 2k on. If you've got the money and the itch, why not?

Henry Gribbohm told WBZ-TV that he was attempting to win an Xbox Kinect at the Manchester carnival when things went awry.
The 30-year-old from Epsom, N.H., was playing a game called Tubs of Fun in which contestants toss balls into a tub, but the balls kept popping out.
“It’s not possible that it wasn’t rigged,” Gribbohm said. “You just get caught up in the whole ‘I’ve got to win my money back.’”
Gribbohm lost $300, WBZ-TV reports, "went home to get $2,300 more and soon lost all of that as well."
Manchester police are investigating the incident, and New Hampshire-based Fiesta Shows, which produces the traveling carnival, is pulling Tubs of Fun for the time being.
Gribbohm, who managed to win a stuffed banana with dreadlocks before dropping $2,600, says he's considering a lawsuit.
“For once in my life I happened to become that sucker,” Gribbohm said.
