    Not as careless as you bidding $6m for Beer.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Ah I see, you are confusing my bid for Beer with my bid for a 'star' player...But then again, I've bid slightly less than that for him...

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    No, because a) I'm at work, b) I'm at work and c) the spreadsheets are at home.

    I select a time because that should be a time I can do it at the time specified. Besides, people may wish to change their bids before the deadline.

    Delighted to get O'Reilly, a very reasonable price as well, enjoying having not one but two spinners sorted already.
