Although I did as as mentioned before I did -- was played a part of the -- -- in our school if you wash your hands over the last time. Glad to hear that and now we're asking about your horror story isn't there a lot of them. Regarding doing business online now it's a bit better here and there but also online is also resulted. In some of phone scams I have been getting and I've got the point where I've probably had seven -- Adam. I have a blocked phone unlisted is you know home of the best I can do in the fall ranks. It's probably as have been seven or eight times and here's the -- Your computer. In three days. Is going to basically disintegrate I mean it's going to be overrun will -- this and that the other thing you remember the plague. And for a mere 200 dollars they can take control of might come on my computer and set it straight. Now I've hung up on these people I don't know how to got my number I have no idea. I've sworn at them nothing works they just keep doing it and the only thing that makes it kind of funny is. Every time I go on these calls as with somebody with a different accent. So it is seems like either they're from different parts. Of the universe or they just purposely put people at different accents on the throw you off. But I'm not signing -- -- -- like that but you guys get that kind of vote harassing stuff too. I don't get as many with the phone calls I didn't with the email email I eucharist yes or you know we don't even have home phone anymore and it -- -- -- it makes it hard you have to -- by a home fall for them too because you get -- item up I do random cell phone calls. But anytime I see it's a number of that's not -- once or senator Roberts yeah I went to Iraq and also has campaign and they do random digit dialing. If you get it's strictly of the luck of the draw eyes to -- calls yet but I purposely made no attempt to be nice civil. Nothing because there they're coming in in my home and invited as well. Okay I'm invited I don't want him there I don't want talk to them and I make it clear right away. And they usually -- they hang up and discussed but then there's somebody else goes back a few days Chris said he and other affairs wouldn't replace. This one comes from Christmas she says I was selling some collectible books on eBay. But the person who bought them pay to a -- PayPal account eventually PayPal big credit me with the south through much later the packets are sent came back to me is abandoned. Over eight. Oh wow so she got paid and they and they merchandise go back to yeah that's bizarre and ever heard of and no that's the that's wild. But there again you know when you're dealing in person. Eyeball to eyeball there's a person standing there they can look at the merchandise -- all the merchandise they can ask questions. The negotiating process continues I'll give you this where you take bad I'll throw this -- him whatever. And there's a certain level of excitement -- with the electronic stuff. Not the same its absence is like dealing with a phantom somebody on the other hand -- hoping that the yeah -- gets complete and that it gets completed. That that the merchandise gets sent the money is collected everybody's happy but I think a lot of times that does not happen you've got some more examples. Yeah how about this was sandy for the right price you can name this woman's baby. In 200533. Year old woman. Named Melissa auction the rights to name her baby on the Internet the rights for naming her child's soul for a whopping 151100. Dollars if. Game 1100. Dollars via the baby's name is ship's garage pizza. Google that's exactly. Why -- that are about to go to best buy low. Because every time the baby gave their name people would think of ship's garage pizza. That would have been money well spent shell thought about that window and they wanna -- -- yeah. Guys that are nick you could be -- you can be the haystack he had that -- that -- Jerry. Named after additional what's the present at the silo at the silo but then I keep fighting and so that would -- yeah I think that the news should approach -- -- owners say if you have any more. The of the naming rights will be available. What that now I mean we name the stadium. For a million dollars. I think stadiums are gonna last as long as of the normal low life span of a child so you get even more publicity yeah that's probably a hundred years old get a hundred years worth of publicity like that. -- mark -- out but I think chefs rush pizza Smith. Would be ago and it. You wonder where some of these things come from because some of them -- bizarre and that's what people see just before they're giving birth. They you only see words or whatever they think that sounds like a cool name and the -- aside and every time a kid has to give his name our name they have to explain. We're just there look at Becky and peel a couple of that's -- that we found on them making fun of college football names is there -- all and that is a very funny shtick and and even a follow -- was funny you know we know the basic premise are we're asking you if you had any horror stories regarding selling or buying on line. If you're on Craigslist or eBay -- first do you go looking if you're looking for I don't know bowling ball was just makes opened up a bowling ball. You go online to see who's selling a bowling ball which you -- and look for us of a store itself bowling supplies. A lot of fail as we just go online assuming that whatever it is going to be cheaper but if you have the -- the ball of the ball has to be drilled or anything like that. Doesn't make much sense but that's the first thing we do because we assume. That if it's online it's got to be cheaper it's got to be a better deal and so we will get a good price and and bowl happily. Ever after after you have your ball drills which sounds very painful. I think I'll pass on now take up another sport where you don't need to get your ball drove. Which is almost any other sport -- negative. Well we've backward borrower Beijing government under greater and I'm -- -- via. You're hearing the voice of Barcelona WDN. That call us now an 8030930. Cell calls are free and start at 930 or toll free line is 1806169236. Now -- -- back clear division -- just reminder if you miss some of the newsmaker interviews with us -- and the -- on vacation till Friday by -- who ever sitting him a call anchor chair. There online does go on line and on demand to WB and our common you'll Haram also Tom Farley show in my show they post. On the matter and so where there -- -- natus kind of fit into your schedule. And we're talking about the on a lot of people do it. They go online and they find out that selling online isn't quite like or buying online is quite like rice or you lose that. Or yard sale whatever. We market you kind of lose that personal contact and because of that there's lot of spammers out there -- so we're asking about your. Carte Europe horror story about buying or selling online if you ban on Craig's list -- -- now they've tried to clean up their acts and they've got PayPal now and and they they -- managed to tighten up a lot of on this cameras but they're still out there does anybody ever throw things away I'm always amazed. By things that people will not throw away. That they who they want either place with somebody else. Or row or salad but they won't just possibly even though it's life is over. It's useful low life is over they just won't do it. And if you're our collectors some say collectors some say harder what do you collect what your heart people collect everything. As I said when I was a kid though my grandfather. Used to smoke cigars and they were common these boxes and my cousin David and I. Really coveted goes a cigar boxes because they were things you can store your cards in -- And anything you had that there was small that -- really need to have. And then them but we started collecting as we -- more as we get older we graduated from cigar boxes to. Coffee cans. Copy Cannes where dad puts every nail banned or not. Known to man is in there thinking someday I'll need is bent nail and what I'll do result straightened out. And use that and I'll say whatever unknown male would cost I don't buy Yahoo! but there are days on Saturdays. When my father. Gave me the job appalling males on the boards and straightening him out -- after that. But I -- every call my father going to the copy command to remove males who knows. He would always have nails but any boards nails in them we must remove demonstrate the -- out and that's part of what we did. So we had coffee cans of males. And I don't know like you have you tried to find some thing that you thought you had rather than go to the start you know. I have the washer that went on the not that the use on that hinged. And I know I don't have to go and buy that washer I know I got so what -- ago he spent five hours looking for a washer that costs a penny. Not a good use of your time. My debt passed to me. Some of the items and I took one of the -- Of nails can Belcher. Are and had anything that had to do -- hard at her and that -- When I first got married I went to Sears and bought tools. -- -- -- -- -- I'm getting married I'll need tools so that I can come way how's old shores many of those tools have never been your support. -- and -- division they are now antiques. But that's that's the way it goes. I got so collectibles are you a collector do you do you collect things you -- things. It's now I -- home. All three of us were in two cards. Baseball cards whatever these two guys yes definitely that's don't have a bunch of worldwide that are avid runner probably our prosperous don't have them and there -- -- at that time. At least when I collected -- maybe a change when you guys collect them. Later on at that time you would actually enjoyed them and use them. -- as -- as cards became more valuable. A -- would get involved and mom would get involved in buying cards for the kids and not letting them take them out of the plastic. Because that's what's going to keep them valuables did you where you guys in that in that -- it started well for me is they would go in the spokes of my by oh yeah sound sure. Then I think parlor -- when I was ten years old and discovered that there was value. And cars are started collecting them deceive them including what was one of the ones I have. I don't know if you remember a player Howard Twilley played all of Miami Dolphins are early sixties -- -- -- -- -- -- -- a twelve this one it's. Your cards and pitch -- -- if you ever truly see your doctor is not covered by our insurance and a whole day you know aren't sure if he married Meg Tilly. She -- and she kept her name should be -- that we totally. Whenever it that do they can top flight entertainment available we're down I think there Howard to a stool for. -- also some some weird things that were put up for auction in November of 2005. The original Hollywood sign. Was sold the starting bid was 300000 dollars is did sell it sold for 450000. Dollars which is a nice profit. In November 05 the original 1923 Hollywood sign remember originally. You know what the original Hollywood sign says no he didn't say Hollywood. Is that Hollywood land. You know autos for now see I know that Osama walking encyclopedia. It was -- housing development. Another Georgian -- you have a new housing development -- five or 6000 people move in whatever that's what this was Schwartz and Hollywood land. Anyway the current auto wanna sell because he said he was too busy working on other projects and more importantly wanted to use the proceeds. To finance another Hollywood project that he had in the works and so the 450000. That. That -- -- It was a it was a nice a nice a lot of money so people are always buying and selling what I've noticed is we've become. A nation of -- merchants who really have. Oh we understand when you go to the store they have overhead whatever so wait a week ago. We try to go to places that we might find hidden treasure. You know -- behind that dogs playing poker there might be a Rembrandt. And when you've taken apart when you get home and and take the frame apart whatever you might find that people are always looking to find a treasure and every once in awhile ago. Look at how many programs -- TV -- -- oh yeah it. Defining thing there's you know you look through exactly Rogers or -- -- he -- you know property storage facility storage wars the ones that get me on a storage wars nobody puts expensive stuff in storage we found out they show is rigged is -- -- I guess I was right. They aren't things in those and those those Rogers. Well you know I found out I used to watch you know the towing -- show where you got the guy would recruit cut the big muscles and the other guy who's tough. And they were going they repossessed vehicles whatever. Once I found out that was a reenactment. I do watch it anymore because there's always the danger pave the owners coming out and the owners got out baseball bat and is now. Now you find out it's it's reenactment. Now even ever happen originally that and get it on video wasn't there wasn't recorded so what's the point and and they all have the same they have a chubby woman. Who has a -- too. And crew cut. And I can't base and they've they've they were there are always in the -- with the guy going to repossess they. The vehicles. The analysts say that what if she's listening to my -- -- Will be back we're more or between government and straighter and -- thirty WB let's go to Charlie in Lancaster. Charlie -- WB yeah. In. I think. So people saying things came from my parents that are morally want to kind of grew -- a depression. And they saved everything I had kind of a funny story 1 morning I went to work. And an old timer was there and make the coffee. And took a sip of a national average you make that -- the -- -- -- try to might light. Yeah just the -- machine should this call is considered so far I. Well that's what we didn't question we just heated up and put salt -- all of my -- He's a little clever guy certainly -- Russian leader result in a depression anymore. Output -- according error on your tongue -- they -- everything. I and also a lot of people during hard times financially would -- on the water through the grounds more than once. And a -- -- was hard to find that there were no Jim Martin's band. Oh. Boy Charlie thank you. Yeah if you think about it like this. There are some things that you grew up live. That you took for granted and as you get -- you wonder for instance I have. An item to belong to my mother and I remember it's specifically. When -- a kid and I haven't now okay it's on display in my dining room. My sister while my sister got the human mothers that essential that the cement donkey with a planner. She got that but I got. This pitcher. In the pitcher is beige. And it is a a a girl probably is my guess although it's androgynous. Colombia a little boy holding. A pig. In his arms OK and as you -- the pitcher. Milk comes out of the pig's mouth. Now. Doesn't come out of a pig under any circumstances. And I don't know why they would make a milk pitcher. Without pig in the -- little boy -- little girl's arms but I have a and I can't commit Democrat I don't remember being intellectually curious enough to ask why milk is coming out of a pig's mouth. But I have -- and I wouldn't give it up for you couldn't give me enough money to buy it so it's strange. What interest your mother or father may -- -- total mystery hero because I can't picture. My mother shopping for that. And saying you know what. -- gather from my house the signal coming out pig's mouth makes sense that may did you guys have anything weird like that no like cancer in -- I go on one leg up on. Now I record of their money from. I bet. -- physical drop in Ireland I bet -- seriously somebody right now some antique collectors going. It that was cast in the only only for three days before they plan for an. They only made two of them one of them is in India. And the Panama Rashid in my. This would be worth millions of dollars you never know me you know and all but the -- coming out of -- -- never made much if you're here tomorrow and will use all that -- guy I scored big guy you're right that's why we have all these shows about them. A place where people either get appraisals. The PBS show does that what they have out. And -- near the end of the appraisal. Will say well. I think this that stewardship portrait. Five -- -- Is worth 83 million. They always -- some outlandish number. And and some people are disappointed though because this this. Treasurer that they have all these years they find out isn't worth that much but. If it's worth -- -- nutrient that is worth it. But they have that and they they have all the pot shops -- Where people go at -- I didn't realize. This upon -- joy out of Detroit. And the people give him yet furious when there. Whether. The presented with the offer from a pawnshop owners and via the use -- bouncers acute mountain that's kind of exciting kind of fun to watch. A but I didn't realize people tried upon really weird and wild stuff -- yeah I think I was just jewelry watches cameras things like that. But I guess -- we see that show. Not that one I like the one in vague Vegas and he's a little bit ease ease on ashes and saying a great guy and he's honest I remember one where you say is I I can't take advantage of view. This item is worth a lot more than what you're asking for here. Here's the -- oh wow so that's good because in the other one let's Goldman is first of all you hate the daughter. The brother hates the daughter -- hate the daughter -- Immediately. And a lot of customers alike are either but she's the daughter so she's over there but at least he's that that's more action and now one. They have the biggest bouncers I have ever seen. And there are these I'd -- this guy's -- walking him back of viewers you're about to. Go nuclear because you know like the price and a shadow cast -- like the earth is going to end. And they just invite shoes that are suck at it -- former Detroit line and now these guys honestly doesn't it look like in big monster guys. And there in the middle of I would assume among our primary. And people bring in all kinds of things that strangely enough. No wires or tree and things like that one would suspect that maybe there war and gotten we -- on. Yeah out and they're bringing -- of the -- up and some of them I mean he said things worth a lot of money there. But that's the kind of stuff going console that is tight end. To -- our history. Of trying to find a bargain. And then now we have a whole new audience online because people are sitting there and Iowa. Checking out your items that normally would be and you -- -- -- sale. Or yard sale and it's kind of like open up the market but -- that -- cameras show up. It's like it's it's just like an open opportunity -- -- -- new group of of people -- with money in the bank that we laughter and trying gets them let's cameras everywhere almost every aspect of life and fines and yet there -- always try to do a -- this unusual auction a group of -- and Australia. Auction off a weekend with a promise of beer snacks and I -- laughs. It -- sell for thirteen hundred dollars 200 dollars. They auction themselves off on eBay. Bit -- fun and laughs and and beer. And that's that so I guess Adam you have a good time glory in and they get four Australian guys different that. Wraps it up for Beijing company on a newsreader and -- that we'll see you tomorrow morning at nine sending. And troops and Iraq -- maybe its argument that -- seems strange suggestion of -- Was it was going on tomorrow on those -- and I started a previous. We'll go home as they never -- to music piece.
