    Drunken purchases thread

    Post by Bren on Wed Nov 02, 2016 4:34 pm

    I'm sure we have all been there before - after a long night out on the booze you sit at home drunkenly bidding on random auctions and shit on Ebay only to completely forget about it upon waking up the next morning.

    I did so recently and ended up winning an auction for several boxes of factory sealed NBA cards. As I sit here typing this I'm currently up to 10 Michael Jordan cards, 4 Shaqs and a couple of Olajuwons.

    So what is the most ridiculous thing you have purchased off Ebay while laying in a drunken stupor on your coach at 3am in the morning? Bonus points if you were able to resell said item for a profit at a later date.

    The most recent a Frank Oz signed photo of Yoda with a cert of Authenticity from some dodgy auction house. I've compared it to other signatures online and with no experience what so ever I can tell it's a fake.



    Before that was probably one of my best. I dropped about $400 on alpaca which I ended up splitting with a mate.

    Curious as to what the Alpaca tasted like. One of my ex's ran an Alpaca farm and when the fibre side of it dropped in the arse they seriously contemplated breeding for food.

    I paid $800 for a cheap guitar at a charity lunch. Not online but drunken.

    I reckon the Yoda pic will be hard to beat.

    Bought a tshirt off ebay earlier this year and it's turned into one of my favourite tshirts.

    Also entered a whole bunch of online competitions when I was in uni or thereabouts and only found out I'd won something when a courier turned up with Savage's debut CD. I literally laughed in the couriers face. Haha. Savage. Hilarious. I did not want that CD (but I still have it somewhere).

    There are probably many other things but those are the two that spring to mind.

    I too have ordered a few Tshirts when drunk. My issue is I forget I am 42 and fat and order XL's because my beer goggles actually work really well on me. I wake up the next morning and I am a XXL in reality again Embarassed

    I've bought hundreds of dollars worth of Batman graphic novels which also included a working batman signal (the thing they point into the sky) I thought it would be bright enough to light up a room. Turns out it's no bigger than a pinky finger and barely lights up your hand if you're holding it next to it.

    This site has been a great source of inspiration for my late night purchases... https://www.ozbargain.com.au

    My trouble is that mostly my Mrs is a home so she gets to the delivery first!

    I wasn't drunk either, but I recently bought this for myself.


    Probably won't end up regretting it, except for the fact that I have nowhere to put the thing once built
