View Full Version : Craigslist Ad for a phone with bonus!

I normally hate the offseason mode threads...but this was too funny not to post.


I have had this phone for about 3 months, from which I purchased from a friend. The story with it is... unlike most phones, the power off option will not fully turn off the phone. When powered off the phone is still running and the touch screen will still work through applications but won't make any calls. SO WEIRD! So this being the case, if left set off, but not connecting it to charge the battery. I thought I had broken it when it wouldn't turn on, so I went to AT&T and bought a brand new battery. The phone worked once again. Then stupid me, I let the battery drain again. The phone will charge the battery when it is partially charged. I have all kinds of accessories that will come with it; three cases, white, black, and pink, A leather case, dock with charging hook-up and computer syncing, separate usb hookup and wall charger. So the deal is that the phone works and charges the battery if it is not completely dead. Now you can either- find someone with a Centro and throw this battery in to give it the initial kick it needs to start charging again, OR buy a new battery.

Disclosure!!! (the catch)

Having said that the battery again drained, I did not have the chance to delete the contents on the phone. The buyer/trader MUST be at least 18 years old, and willing to sign something pledging to erase what is on the phone. The internal memory holds maybe a couple of pictures of my girlfriend and one movie performing a sexual act. She agrees to the sale but emphasizes to delete. Both of us are at legal age so I'm not selling anything with kiddy porn but again must be willing to erase.

Probably a joke, but you'll never go broke underestimating the IQ of the general population.

That's an ingenious way to drive up the price for a faulty phone!

Manly Bike for Sale

<hr> Date: 2008-07-22, 10:18AM PDT

Bike for sale

What kind of bike? I don't know, I'm not a bike scientist. What I am though is a manly guy looking to sell his bike. This bike is made out of metal and kick ass spokes. The back reflector was taken off, but if you think that deters me from riding at night, you're way wrong. I practiced ninja training in Japan's mount Fuji for 5 years and the first rule they teach about ninja biking is that back reflectors let the enemy know where you are. Not having a rear reflector is like saying "**** YOU CAR, JUST TRY AND FIND ME".

The bike says Giant on the side because it's referring to my junk, but rest assured even if you have tiny junk that Giant advertisement is going to remain right where it is. I bought this bike for 300 dollars from a retired mercenary that fought in both World War 1 and World War 2 and had his right arm bitten off by a shark in the Phillipines while stationed there as a shark handler. When he sold it to me I had to arm wrestle him for the honor to buy it. I broke his arm in 7 places when I did. He was so impressed with me he offered me to be his son but I thought that was sissy **** so I said no way.

The bike has some rusted screws, but that just shows how much of a bad ass you are. Everyone knows rusted screws on a bike means that you probably drove it underwater and that's bad ass in itself. Those screws can be replaced with shiny new ones, but if you're going to go to that trouble why not just punch yourself in the balls since you're probably a dickless lizard who doesn't like to look intimidating.

The bike is for men because the seat is flat or some **** and not shaped like a dildo. If you like flat seated bikes you're going to love this thing because it doesn't try to penetrate your ass or anything.

I've topped out at 75 miles per hour on this uphill but if you're just a regular man you'll probably top it out at 10 miles per hour. This thing is listed as a street bike which is man-code for bike tank. The bike has 7 speeds in total:

Gear 1 - Sissy Gear
Gear 2 - Less Sissy Gear
Gear 3 - Least Sissy Gear
Gear 4 - Boy Gear
Gear 5 - Pre-teen Boy Gear
Gear 6 - Manly Gear
Gear 7 - Big Muscles Gear

I only like gear 6 and 7 to be honest.

Additionally, this tool of all immense men comes with a gigantic lock to keep it secure. The lock is the size of a bull's testicles and tells people you don't **** around with locking up your bike tank. It tells would-be-thieves "Hey asshole, touch this bike and I'll appear from the bushes ready to club you with a two-by-four".

Bike is for 150 OBO (and don't give me no panzy prices)

I think it is a great way to sell a phone. Best gimmick I have heard in a long while. LOL

Worst Craigslist story I heard was somewhere back East ... there was an ad posted in the "Free Stuff" page saying, "We're out of town buying new house, but we cannot afford to move all our belongings here. We must be out of old house by next month. So all the furnishings left at 1234 Main Street are yours for the hauling. Will leave backdoor unlocked all this week."

Of course, they didn't place the ad, somebody else did ... and the poor bastards were cleaned out. Cops traced the ad to a public Internet access computer somewhere nearby, but I don't know if the perp was ever caught ... must've been somebody who knew they were going out of town, though.
