Hey, watch it. I'm here to tell you that depending on the contents of the bag, those doorknobs could be worth a LOT more than a Kinkade or two. The collector's market for nineteenth century bronze figural pieces is insane. I started collecting at swap meets as a kid, got priced out of the hobby, and got into prints instead.

:lol: while that was funny....it didn't work. it's flawed logic and my circuits reject such nonsense.

now watch me as i troll myself into wasting time.

you assume the reason i bash capitalism is because i'm an asshole, but you're mistaken. it's because i'm tired of assholes being assholes via the accepted method of assholery: capitalism.

in context, substituting "people" in place of "capitalism" is like substituting a computer for an operating system.

we need a new operating system, even assholes would agree.

It is not mine but YOUR logic that is faulty! You assumed that I was calling you an asshole when I was actually calling me an asshole in both contexts.
I believe they call that a triple Lindy.
