Original Request:
If I sold livejournal.com on Ebay, could I buy a Porsche?

Did I spell Porsche correctly?

Would I have to give Ebay money? How's that work? I've never used Ebay.

I need a backrub.

I need to sleep.

P.S. I can't drive stick too well.

Would the Porsche dealership let me test drive one if I can only drive automatic?

Goddamnit... I want a Porsche.

If not a Porsche, what do you recommend Mr. Goon?

Dear User,

Sorry, there is no FAQ that answers your questions. I suggest fixing the directory.

I think You should buy a Semi Truck instead, and stick a picture of you in a porsche on the side
with a sign saying
I am a "BIG" Man,
So I needed a Bigger truck to carry my equiptment

Dear Angry User,

I'm sorry that you feel this way. If you read the TOS carefully, you will notice that you are required to let me ride in your Porsche. Please comply with this request by 12:01 am 3 days following the purchase of the Porsche in question, or we may be forced to take further action.

Would Frank be included in this sale?
I'm sure you could demand a higher price if you included him.

I'm sorry, but if you check the latest TOS from Ebay, you'll find that people are no longer allowed to try to sell their children there.

Since LiveJournal is definitely your baby, it would appear you won't be able to sell it there.

Would you consider a high-mileage Chevy pickup in trade? ;-)

make livejournal into a stock... then sell it after the first day when it goes up 500%... and crashes over the next year

by then... u could buy the porsche company
