yah world of warcraft nerds are CRAZY, we did this last year too

the convention is really boring and crappy, and people pay insane amounts of money to go!!! there was a stuffed toy you could only buy at the show last year ($40) and they sold off ebay for $300

this is the time of year when starving students with a moderate understanding of supply and demand make some money lol

INCREDIBLE! I realized from my sons & friends that WoWC was addictive, but, at $1200 for tickets to a Con, it becomes a pricier form of cocaine or smack! affraid

To be quite honest, after playing WoW for 4 years(then quitting finally) I'd rather spend the 1200 bucks on some cocaine, booze, strippers and have a massive party : /

Perhaps you can sell these places on Ebay, and have a massive amount of money ! Razz
Next time you see the 6 Averlanders' minis on Ebay, you'll can buy 'em, and that is most exciting, isn't it? bounce affraid

$1200!?!?!?!? *manages to not type the swear words*

I realise that you obviously think that that's a good deal, but I just can't hel thinking 'that's a high-quality kayak or mountain-bike or crossbow or computer or ...,' (That puctuation just looks wrong even though it's correct.)

I think you misunderstand, he bought the tickets at the RRP and intends to sell them for 600 each on ebay, wow nerds are dumb like that to pay that much for blizzcon tickets.

@LR: you're right, you can buy all that stuff for that much, but it's hard (I managed it: my kayak was £100 from an army-surplus, my bike's made of bits from the tip (note to johnny-f'riners: a tip is not a dump, you can buy stuff there), my crossbow's self-made and I got my laptop VAT free due to some dubious stuff).

@BB: ah, I see. Still, they must be mad! I suppose they must think they're getting their money's worth...,

It's rather a Robin Hood thing: Rob from the Rich & give to the Poor...in this instance, you constitute "the Poor". thumbsup
