    Did you ever buy a TF off of eBay while being drunk and regret it the next day?

    Happened to me a few times...

    Yup. It happened to me a bunch of times. The most memorable one is when I ended up with winning and paid for 4 G1 Astrotrains on 4 separate autions. The thing is that I already had 2.

    one thing ive learned is that drunkeness and internet access do not mix for any situation.

    and yes, i did buy tf's off ebay when i was drunk. they were not necessarily bad buys, but its stuff i probably would have not of done if i was sober.

    I've looked, and been very tempted... but never hit the bid or BIN button. There's been a time or two when I've looked on the Junkion Exchange and typed out a whole "I want this for that price" message, and while proofreading, I second-guessed myself and decided "Eh, maybe when I'm sober." I'd write down the seller's name and the item for the morning and said "Whew, glad I didn't, that's a little more than I can afford right now."

    ^And I replied;
    Guess my answer is still the same, I'm glad I don't drink anymore.

    I've come close, but the wife saw the site I was on and stopped me pretty quickly. On another occation, I kept tapping the screen of my moniter thinking it was touch screen. Good times.

    No surprise purchases this year :( 

    I've only been drinking about four times this year, two of those were at AA, and a recent board meet. I spy a pattern there :lol

    thought it was a good idea to purchase a leader class cybertron galvatron in pristine condition, all parts/keys/instructions/etc. a good price or a high price would have been 60....well after about 9-10 coors lights I decided sky was limit...ended up purchasing for 98.00 and 7 shipping. felt great that night having won, felt horrible next day seeing brand new buy it now galvatrons for 79.99 shipped.

    What's with this legal age crap? Anyway, I haven't yet, but I can only imagine what I'd get.
