Not a multi, I swear! (in Public Record)

After this happened, I realized it probably looked a little suspicious to any outside observer:

Jamba in da Juice (Fsha) 75.73.220.75 [RP08]ColonelCustard (Pandaman) $16375 6:35 PM EST
[RP08]ColonelCustard (Pandaman) 75.73.220.75 Jamba in da Juice (Fsha) A Rune of Enlightenment ($11030) 6:34 PM EST

Explanation:
This Jamba character is my brother. We live in the same home, and use the same internet connection. For this reason, we have the same ip address.
We also discuss and agree on things verbally, for the most part, which is why there is no record of plans to make this exchange posted beforehand in Public Record. If he rips me off in-game, I can just cruise on over to the other computer, and punch him, no admin intervention needed.

Why it appears so one-sided:

The_Hatchetman, who has been very helpful to us both, lent me his RoE for me to try out, free of charge. I found it not to be very useful, as it took the place of three rather helpful pieces of armor on my team, and unequipped it after losing to portions of my fightlist. My brother, meanwhile, wanted to borrow it, but was dismayed when Hatchetman told me he had already lent it to me. So, I sent it to him, on Hatchet's behalf, but asked him to pay me back the transfer fee because I am working on figuring out how many battles it takes to re-gain the money spent on buying NCB BA, and the ~16k difference would have thrown off my results.

I did not sell him an RoE for a ridiculously low price. Just in case anyone thought I did. It was Hatch's when I had it in my inventory, and it's still Hatch's now that it's on his minion.

They both requested use of my RoE, and the only reason I couldn't let Jamba borrow my RoE was because I had already promised it to LC once he got the room (he had loaned some things to a newb that quit). This is effectively like me loaning to them both... If he had sent it back to me, it would've gone straight to Jamba. This way just saves me $16,375.

what floats?

Colonel Custard [SeeD] January 18 2008 5:27 PM EST

That response was non-sequential to say the least. I think the proper continuation is "*smacks Custard on the head* ummmmmm... wood?"

That's right! And so what does that tell us about witches?

Jamba in da Juice January 21 2008 11:38 AM EST

fine

"good, now how do we tell if she's made out of wood?"

Colonel Custard [SeeD] January 21 2008 3:42 PM EST

*sigh* Never mind....

I give you permission to watch that movie ad infinitum until you can quote it properly.

You think it's the idea that's funny, but no; word order is very important. Very important.

TheHatchetman January 21 2008 3:53 PM EST

Proven inconsequential, word order can be. Important in very few cases, it is. <Yoda impression, /end>
