As one of the OLDEST fossils who visits the lounge on a fairly regular basis may I call on your indulgence and patience in helping this old man out here. Please don't be too severe in your criticism of me. I hurt, and break easily. But can someone kindly explain what this Tommy Westphall Universe actually is and how it works. For example what exactly is the link between Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead? Is it just the actors or one of them or is there some other sort of link?
Thanks.

Wink

The Lounge has run out of money
So we are auctioning the following;

1. BB
slight loss of hearing and memory is now impaired
bidding starts @ R3500

2. Frosty
"used king" and lack of sanity discount
bidding starts @ R2000

3. All other members (incl. myself)
various flaws and risks
bidding starts @ R6000 each


When the lounge reaches 3000 posts it will win enough Bitcoins to stay afloat, but don't delay getting it there.
(Not sure if I'll be here to see the magic number )

I'm not sure I'd want any of the Lounge members. You'd definitely have to pay me to take them, and it would need to be quite a substantial sum of money.

I'm worth more than Frosty's worth. Tra la la la la
I'm worth more than Frosty's worth. Tra la la la la.

BUT IT'S HIGHLY INSULTING THAT THIS DOESN'T MEAN THAT MUCH WHEN EVERYONE ELSE IS VALUED AT MORE THAN EITHER FROSTY OR I AM!!!!!

MMMMM. Oh wait. I get it now. That's the bidding price MC is making to get rid of us. In other words MC offering to pay others to take us away from the lounge. Makes more sense now. The higher the price the more they want to make sure the sale goes through.

Sure that in Optimist's case this fee will even include delivering him to the person/organisation that accepts their offer.

Think it's because Optimist put too high a value on our heads? Maybe he should revalue our prices?

A good auctioneer start off with a high price beyond the estimated value and then reduce it until he get the first bite. I am sure Optimist will follow-up with revised offers.
