Apparently NES have gone up, they can go for a couple hundred!

Does anyone ever message these people and tell them how off the rocker they are? Or do you all just let them continue in blissful ignorance?

Unless they are wearing a gas mask, it will still be relatively effective because pepper spray affects any area with mucous membranes. So, they won't be blinded, but they may have a hard time breathing. At the very least, it should stun them long enough for you to get some distance.

the point of pepper spray is it is a non lethal weapon. However that being said, self defense classes would be better in my opinion, you may not always have that mace / it could malfunction / be empty.

Super Nintendo 13 games and extras - $200 (Woodbridge)

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
Posted Image
I have a Super Nintendo system with 13 games , 2 SNES controllers , an aftermarket controller , new style AV cables , and a game genie.
I just tested everything, and all the games and the genie works. The only thing i couldn't figure out was the aftermarket controller, it has 5 switches on it, and each switch has 3 positions. They are for slow motion, auto fire and other things. I was going to lookup online to see how its supposed to work, but i didn't. Not sure why it wouldn't work. But there are 2 other controllers, and they both work.
It has the original RF switch to use with the old cable input on the TV.
I also have the A/V ( yellow / white / red ) wire for the newer TVs , and better quality. This is the same from a nintendo 64.
It has the AC cord.
Game genie works, but no book. I just did a quick google search and found codes as I was playing it before. They were all online. There is a switch on the genie, make sure its on.

The games are:

Desert Strike ( i have 2 copies, but didnt include the extra in the 13 could, so its really 14 )
Super Battletank: war in the gulf
Rise of the robots
UN Squadron
Super Mario world
Killer Instinct
Vegas Stakes
The death and return of Superman
Super Mario Kart
Skiiing and snowboarding Tommy Moe's Winter extreme
NHL '94
NFL Quarterback Club
Madden 98

I found out some of these games are pretty rare, and a few were over 25 on EBAY.
Any questions, please ask.
I will remove when it sells, like my other listings.
Hurry before its gone.
Thanks for looking

Mace is often interchanged with pepper spray in the State of Pennsylvania, carrying pepper spray/ mace is perfectly legal (so long as it is not used offensively ) where as carrying an extendable baton is not.

PA offensive weapons

P.S. Mace is illegal.

Only some Mace products are restricted from the general product. Their pepper spray is legal in all 50 states while some products are meant only for police use. It's important to keep in mind that Mace is actually a company that makes a variety of defensive items; it itself is not a product.

Everytime I go to craigslist, most people want a ridiculous sum of money for thier old Sega Genesis or NES games. This guy has a Sega Genesis and 17 games, all common *maybe not hyperstone heist but STILL- *, and asking for $125. It really gets annoying after awhile. All these people think their stuff is worth this much..

Just to play devil's advocate for once, I help a few people who buy and sell cars do Craigslist ads and we always list the price at $500-$1000 over what we're looking for just because 90% of the people who will call/text/email lead with: "Will you take (50% of what you're asking)". After a while you'll get someone who is somewhat reasonable, but they still lowball then slowly start working towards your price. If you price way over, then you can sell stuff for close to what you want because people think they're getting some amazing deal when they "talk you down" a few hundred dollars.

One time I had a work truck up for $8,000 (which was below the KBB values and more than reasonable) and a guy called and said the pictures look like the truck has some dents in the body and wanted to know if I would take $2,000 cash. I just hung up on him. If you ever start selling stuff on Craigslist, you'll quickly find out that the buyers on there are a million times worse than the idiots we laugh at in this thread.

No. Most of the people we laugh at deserve it. A Nintendo NES with 4 games for $200? Your NES is not rare and neither are the games included. When I message these people, they say NO LOWBALLERS- $175 MIN. I just shake my head.
So YES, these people deserved to get laughed at. Most of them aren't overpricing their stuff just to get people to offer them a price which they "really want" which is a little lower. These people are usually delusional and actually believe this stuff is worth THAT much money.

Glad you know the intentions of every seller on Craigslist.

So YES, these people deserved to get laughed at.



Where DID I SAY they didn't.


Seriously dude, what's with the abrasive reply.

Try to sell some big ticket items on Craigslist and then see if you still think the sellers are worse than the buyers...

I agree that those shows are terrible. Friends and family ask me all the time "can you look to see if this is worth anything on eBay" for that very reason.

Eh, could be worse. There's a couple comic shops around here and that's pretty much what you would spend on all that, even if it isn't the "market value", depending on your area and availibility and demand it could be "retail value", know what I mean? And besides, gotta post a little high sometimes because most people want to talk you down.

I bet that guy would let all that go for like 90 bucks, which for a person who wants to relive some childhood memories or something, that has the money to spend on an old system and games, isn't all that unreasonable.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.
