+1 old
+1 old and get of my lawn!

My son scrolled through the story section from various members from the cook group showing image after image of walls of the same Nike and Adidas shoes, stacks of Supreme items anything and everything. And it was mostly just one item, but dozens of said same item from the current drop of the day. It was gross to see. And the fact that they have absolutely no problem undercutting on the secondary market. The kids sell clothing on a place called StockX that has a pretty hefty 13% fee and they'll literally list it for only $5 more than what they bought the item for, so after taxes and shipping on the original item they aren't making any money!!! These kids are drymounting stupid idiots. I guess this is the result of teaching them common core math in school.

He said they normally don't do prints, but there was a new member who came from another group that suggested the print thing. Uhhhg.

I’ve been making my 5-year old refresh for hours and camp out for days in the rain. You all telling me I ‘ve been doing it wrong?

Sounds like the only positive thing about these new cook groups is the immediate aftermarket will be so low balled that items will be sold at or near cost.

If these teenagers were willing to hang onto the items for 6+ months they would actually make a nice profit.

Lol. Come on man, I am a good dad. When it snows, I make her and her 2-year old sister shovel the driveway. From a couple of weeks ago:

Any news on refunds for Enhanced Disintegration?

Shep's apparently going to re-do the drop due to bot usage. Curious if he'll do another run, or cancel the previous orders.
