    I just recieved the totally invisible Beaker from a sale through ebay. Probably spent alittle to much, but what the **** it is worth it. I heard they only made 350, is this true?

    Sorta true...

    They made closer to 500, but two cases 'disappeared' thanks to UPS. Only 350 made it to the party.

    that's because it's not common knowledge...because these things WEREN'T FOR SALE!! now i'm not saying that i wouldn't love to have one because that would be lying. but the fact that they showed up on ebay at all just makes me angry. they weren't made for general sale.

    No way of knowing...

    There's no way of knowing what happened to those two cases, so I wouldn't go assuming they ended up on ebay.

    Also, there were plenty of people at that party who probably weren't too concerned about their Beaker, so I'm not surprised they ended up on ebay. That and the fact that many of the people at that party were larger dealers...

    Wow that's a lot of green. Wish you hadn't paid so much for it...

    Re: No way of knowing...

    Plus, remember that one dude claimed they were all *drunk*, LOL! Or was that you? Anyway, although it may not have been true, I thought it was a funny way to sell a product on eBay.

    No, I wasn't drunk, although with an open bar and a Saturday night, I might have been had I not had a four hour drive in front of me. ;-)

    Ah, but there's no driving for me in SDCC!

    Re: Re: No way of knowing...

    I assume you are reffering to my post, as i am the seller of the loose one a week back. You also misquoted me on that thread.
    I never said any one was drunk, I said he was playing with it and left it behind.
    I see from your profile you are a teacher, as such I would expect you to have better reading/comprehension skills.

    Not you

    No, he's not refering to you - there have been hundreds of auctions for the invisible beakers. And yes, one of those auctions, in it's description, said everybody was drunk at the party.

    FellowWLover Well-Known Member

    Oh give me a break!

    No, you didn't *say* they were all drunk, but you certainly implied that there *were* drunken people at the convention...

    Why so snippy? Maybe you overstated things a tad in your auction text in order to convince folks to snatch up your item... hmm? Gee, seems my reading/comprehension skills are in tact after all.

    Re: Oh give me a break!

    OK, I see the problem, I am the Dude who ran the auction, but those are not my words. I do not know whose they are, perhaps if you look at where you got them from, the mystery will be solved.
    And all I said in my description is that it was a give-away at the party.
  16. FellowWLover

    FellowWLover Well-Known Member


    Is this, or is this not your auction? Because I "got my words" directly from eBay... so if you are this "dude", then the mystery really is solved.

    If not, why are you so upset?

  17. LGH1

    LGH1 New Member

    Nope. I was selling a different one, that was being discussed in a different thread, and in that thread you were also thinking of this auction. So the mystery is indeed solved. Sorry for any misunderstanding, and making you feel so *sigh* put upon
  18. FellowWLover

    FellowWLover Well-Known Member

    Well in that other thread, there were two links posted... yours, and this one, http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1749888740. How was I to know which "dude" you are?

    Anyway, I don't know why you minded so much (as to insult me even)... I thought it was funny! I just loved that mental image of drunken con-goers dipping their Invisible Beakers in their soup and such. Haha!

    It may well be the tube of vanishing cream that got all the attention at the drunken party - just think what dirty things you could do with that !
