Not having used ebay in years and I have just starting to use it again to sell stuff to pay some bills. I must say I'm shocked at the amount of faked megadrive and snes carts of rare games that are listed as "professional repro" :shock:

Erm no you are a scumbag selling fakes.

I know there has always been fakes floating about but not this many.

Most people get them off Aliexpress and sell them on for twice the price

I have no issue with fakes if sold as such and priced as such.
Example:
At play blackpool there were I think 3 mega drives in a row, one had streets of rage 3, another had alien soldier and there might have been another. No one in their right mind would put real copies of those games out, as they would be stolen.

Spoiling reveals.

During half an episode of Heroes Reborn recently a character known only as the director was filmed only from the bottom half as if to reveal this director as someone we arent supposed to expect...having the said person have their name as "guest starring" at the start of the programe in clear as day wording kind of spoils it.

Its probably happened in other series too, im sure the odd buffy episode had special gueSt "david boreanez" then half way through an episode Angel saves the day, like we are supppsed to be suprised.

Im pretty sure but cant remember what, an series handled it well, when they arrived to save the day the episode ended and "guest starring" was only added at the end of the programme, cant remember what it was now though.

Origami. What's with the spam posts of it on here? Each to their own - but it's not my thing. Maybe someone had been watching to much Bladerunner and made their own origami unicorn? :lol: :D

How can you spam it anyway? Paper's hardly expensive and I'm sure if you want to learn, there's plenty of resources available for free.

I know this guy doesn't seem to know the words give up. Well he will when he's banned from these forums and his ISP informed... :lol:

He's also doing weight loss pills as well as origami, the only other time I heard about origami was from Only Fools and Horses - Del Boy being a black belt in it... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDRhd8IncWw :lol:
