Default For Those Who Bought Buckyballs

I bought 4 sets of balls and 2 sets of cubes at $5 each. I just got around to listing the balls on eBay, and within MINUTES of listing, the first set sold for $35 w/free shipping. And get this, the buyer has ALREADY paid

Get yours up before it's too late. From what I see, eBay is taking them down just about as fast as people can put them up.

Edit: Second set bought and paid for

2nd Edit: Third set bought and paid for

Final Edit: All sets are gone within 30 minutes of posting the listing! Best flip I've ever made!

The governmental powers that be have filed an injunction against the company to stop selling them, and Moondoggle has caved to the pressure.

something to the order of 3 children in 2 years died from these things. I'm certain more kids die from other toys but this one was an easy target to pick on.

A) I don't foster children, idiot
B) My children will be raised with common sense, something your parents didn't know anything about
C) Do I finally have my first troll?

He has numerous stupid comments. That one you just posted was just ridiculous. I thought he would shut up after that. I guess the idiot never learned.

Dude, what an absolute prick you are. First you prove that you are a complete and total racist and now you're continuing to attack someone who did a great thing for the life of a child?

Please, please go screw yourself

Yep. He's full of witty anecdotes and useful information. Today is opposite day, isn't it?

I think he just wants young people to not have a chance unless he's raising them (talk about irony). At least that's what I've gathered from his numerous posts.

Block at your own discretion, Andy. I don't have anyone on my blocked list, regardless of how pompous, arrogant, or narcissistic they may be.

No problem. BIN works best, and fast. I swear, my phone was alerting me every minute or so each time a set was sold. Not sure if the cubes will go as fast, but I don't care...I'm already up $105 before fees!

Because they are worried about being sued. Anyone selling them should be worried as well.
