    Battle of the toilet - Who can get there the fastest.

    The pot stirrer/smoker won the first line, and, the serious joker, the second. Ha.I guess the problem is that the Dawg might have taken such advantage of a legitimate business, and, next, stupidly gave himself away by paying "a little more right then and there".

    Pretty prescient.

    And, oh, a bit of trivia ...

    There were some diamonds and gems on the jewelry too, but I assumed the pawn shop was going to offer zero towards any of that and the price they offered to pay the guy was well below melt for the precious metal alone. I later had the stuff examined more carefully and all the gems turned out to be genuine too.

    These were not chains. I still have all that stuff I got that day. Did I or anyone I know ever wear any of it?

    AccountInQuestion I've been around and owned watches and jewelry all my life. I have friends and family in the business. I may not be as good as a professional at judging whether something is genuine, but I'm not that far off either. Yes all those pros test something to make sure, but they already have a good idea just by looking whether something is what it appears to be.

    It was in a tray with some crappy watches all plated. What had happened obviously was the owner had misread it as 14K PG plated gold, but PG alone means plumb gold which means 14K solid). I asked the owner how much, and he came with some pretty high price for a crappy plated watch, but a ridiculously low price for that particular especially solid 14K watch, and I pretended like I was debating, then just handed him the two bills.

    The thing was (is, I still have it), worth three thousand easily.

    Yes, it's not a watch I ever got around to wearing, but I might give it to someone someday.
    It would be very nice if you gave it to Kewl as a peace offering.

    Man that'd be the best Christmas for this forum that I can imagine.

    Zero chance...RIP

    What's really neat is that the Dawg sits with 6666 posts, and 6*6 = 36, threads at the Wizard's. Ha.

    Something about, "Have other things to do for a while that are pressing."

    Unless you've been there before, ie, see the future, however. Ha.

    Fuck the Buck.
