Actually, I use "literally" infrequently; but I literally use "actually" ad nauseum.

Goddamnit motherfucking **********. I spent the past 3 hours fabbing, bending and cutting sheet aluminium for a heater box a la crusher. Came out decent until the point I had to rivet it all together. None of my ******* rivets seem to work and the riveter actually broke. I'm about to stab someone in the eyeball. Literally.

Also, if you literally can not wait until the weekend, what are the consequences now that you must? Will you die?

Or did you just screw up the use of "literally?"

Some ******* just threw a bag of McDonalds trash out their window in front of me, and now there's garbage all over the road.

Litterally.

WHAT!? Surely people aren't this ******* unrealistic in their expectations. No ******* way he is going to get anything like $36k. He MIGHT see $20k for it. People think just because you put money into a car that you are going to get it all back on the sale. NO, you don't. For some reason his price makes me angry. I want to punch him in the face for even asking that much for that car.

Something I don't understand:

People who bid multiple times within the last few minutes of an eBay auction, win said auction, and then can't be bothered to send payment for their purchase for 24+ hours.

Oh well, just means I'll ship it Monday Tuesday instead of tomorrow.

Looks like it's lived a harder life than one of faeflora's engines.

yeah I agree with FRT- **** ebay. Those ******** not only charge a higher percentage than last time I used it for sales, but they jacked up the paypal fee as well. Double dipping mother *******.

Yeah. I've only sold maybe $400 worth of stuff, in 5 or 6 small transactions and I have something like $60 in ebay fees, and have given PayPal their little chunk as well. **** them. Combined, that has to be approaching 15%.

I hate paypal, they are a evil terrible company. But nobody has yet to provide a viable alternative. And I hate that even more. WTF free market?

PP does suck. The fees are too high. I do like that I can purchase with PP on a lot of websites though, it's easier than a credit card.
