You're listening to the radio when the trivia moment comes on. Big Jake, the gruff DJ with the deep voice who is indistinguishable from the other 20,000 DJs in America, asks the big question: who invented the telescope?

After each of the first 10 callers guess Galileo, you call in and say, "Hans Lippershey", and you win!

You now get your choice of a set of transportation prizes. Which do you pick? (See the accompanying poll, and congratulations.)

Which one has the best resale, because I'm not keeping any of them.

To keep? Car.
To sell? I don't care.

That is my first thought too. Would have to just to pay the damn tax on it anyways.

I have the car I want so it would be between the boat and the recreational vehicle.

With the ocean right here I think it would have to be the boat.

So, in your opinion, the resale market for diamond-studded shoes is larger than the market for things like cars and boats?

I meant the rep request. Those very rarely go well.

I had to invoke the unwritten response to guys who beg for rep.
Sorry Smed. :)

I knew that was going to be the response. I guess I will have to change my life ambitions now. I gave it a shot. I tried, I really did.

Don't worry. It's a unwritten rule and you have to follow the code. You'll dig your way back out. Hopefully this thread will die and you won't get buried too deep ROFL

Haha... Trolling for Dummies on Usenet.

I wonder what the percentage of posters here that have ever posted on Usenet is. Or, hell.. what the percentage that know what Usenet is is.
