Randomness XVII: The Madness of the Quorum

I've had the same issue.  I have way too many books and not enough shelves. But I don't know if any used books stores are actually taking books....(and I'm lazy so haven't checked......)

 

And I've put off selling any of my extra game stuff cause that's a lot of work. So many boxes of RPG books.

I was moving my INWO: One with Everything box the other day, which has never even been played (I played the CCG) and made the mistake of checking ebay to see how much they were going for.... now I have to decide if I want to put it up for sale, since if I get the average price they are selling for it'd cover my Bone 6 pledge (next year or whenever).

I used my stimulus check to buy some shelves that I desperately needed. Even after buying about 12 square feet of shelving, I still don't have enough room for everything... I may have a problem. :ph34r:

I have been setting aside several books that I don't think I'll ever re-read. I picked them up for cheap, so I don't mind getting rid of them. Of course, I've been buying more but I also make sure that I can put them somewhere.

 

I also have some stuff I should probably get rid of. I have some original Lazer-Tag stuff, old toys and junk, that just sits in bins. And, yeah, I don't want to deal with getting rid of them, either. It just feels like too much hassle to deal with for the money. It took me two years and help from a friend to get rid of my Orks after I quit playing 40k. (I still have two complete armies)

Think of it more as an opportunity for solutions. ::D: You'll feel better, and thank me later.

 I'm not even to try to see if Powell's is buying used books. :down:

Wait, Powell's runs on used books!  If they aren't taking in new material, I don't think they will survive and that would be a real shame.  I haven't been to their Portland store in a decade or more and I still remember the sight of a city  block of used books. That and the intoxicating smell of coffee, old paper and wood.  I really need to back there...

 

They are; there's an online thing.

Trick is, they're /super picky/ about condition, and they won't buy anything without an ISBN right now, so I'm told.

I don't know if that's Standard Normal for their online system. They do seem to be willing to fund UPS Ground, so there's that.

Confirmed no Canadian distribution of Dullcote because Testors does not want to print a bilingual label.

:rock:

 

That's one of the dumbest reasons for not selling a product I have ever heard. Especially when there is demand for the said product. I wonder if the USA labels have Spanish on them. Will check next time I am in the basement.

I still maintain that they're covering for Kraft using it as a main ingredient for their Canadian Meals...they can't come out and openly say that though, because of some manner of nondisclosure agreement.

Which would also explain why the Pumpkin of Judgement is using said meals as a punishment for heresy. I can't imagine dullcote having a pleasing flavor...

What's that green leafy stuff sticking out of the noodles? Looks suspicious.

 

Better avoid it and stick to the unnaturally bright noodles.

Which is odd, considering that they've already been doing it:

I am calling "shenanigans" on Testors then (still need to check my own can for Spanish on the label).
