I mean...I THINK they're real...but I just don't know what they're worth.

I'll give you fifty bucks, and I don't even know why I'm offering THAT.

OpCit: Out of twenty-nine comments, there were twenty-seven pawnstar jokes before two comments about MLK and the article. Fark is farked. Sadly, I think this website is done.


I agree that Fark.com is done. It'll probably become a collectible, but there isn't a huge market for Fark.coms out there right now. I'll give you ten bucks for it, and I don't even know why I'm offering that.

I'll be honest, man. These are great, but I just don't know what they're worth or how long they're going to stay in my store. They could end up sitting on the shelf for years taking up space in my store. I'll give you $6 for them.

I'll be honest with you, it's a pretty interesting bit of history, but there's just no market for it out there.

You're on a website based on a picture of a squirrel with huge testicles. A website where the first ever article was about a pilot who crashed while trying to moon another fighter pilot. And you're complaining that the level of sophistication has somehow decreased?

The thing is, Martin Luther King's people made thousands of these and passed them out as gifts.  Its really not that rare.  But the case is nice.  I can give you 50 bucks for the case.

Yes, I know my expert said they're worth 10 grand, but I have to get them cleaned up, put them either in the store or up for auction, and still make a little money. Twenty bucks is the best I can do.

You know I gotta think about my costs here. I gotta pay for them to go to auction, I gotta meet the reserve. 25 bucks

Ten years ago, I would have given you 100,000 for them. But in this economy...20 bucks. And I don't even know why I'm giving you that.

Tapes are what we used to play before CDs and iPods. They were really reliable. You didn't have to worry about them scratchin' up, or your computer crashin'

Martin Luther King, Jr was THE face of the American civil rights movement. He pioneered civil disobedience as a form of protest, and was one of the first prominent figures to publicly oppose the Vietnam War. These tapes are rare, and I'd love to have them in my shop - but only for the right price.

This somehow has changed radically from slightly over a year ago?

1/10 and you have to stand in the corner signing Justin Beiber.

yah that may be what they would sell for at auction, but good luck finding the perfect buyer. This is a rare item, which means the market is small on it.

Honestly, if you had them signed that would triple the price. Even though Pops would say its a bad investment, i'm willing to go to $350 but thats my absolute limit. I'll even pay you in hundreds

"I'm gonna say build baby build, organize baby organize."

The next tape we're going to find is going to be about "Drill, baby, drill!" Then they'll all be re-released together in the "Life after death, baby, death!' album with all proceeds going to the King family.

blatz514: MJMaloney187: So wait ... if Walt and Jessie are cooking meth in people's houses, wouldn't the HUGE electricity bill give them away? I mean, wouldn't the homeowner notice a $5000 electric bill?

Wrong thread?



I'm just sayin' ... the power those machines consume has to be enormous.

In Summerville? Hmm. Usually it's white hoods being found in closets in that part of town.
