SO I spent 900k on a bookshelf token and...

Discussion in 'UHall' started by RavenWinterHawk, Nov 16, 2009.

  1. I bought a token for a bookshelf. I clicked the token and got an empty bookshelf in my pack.

    Why did I pay 900k for this?

    Its empty. Is there something I can do with it? Can I fill it or something?


    I had to laugh.

    They look empty until you place something inside them.

    I think you have to put stuff or books in it and it will change the looks of it, but i'm not a hundred billion percent sure on this.
     
  5. Thanks
    I was having a good laugh.

    I think five more people need to say you need to put stuff in it to fill it up.

    OP should learn how to use common sense.

    If you buy a turkey for thanksgiving it's usually empty. So, grab the turkey stuffings, shove your hand up it's ass and vôila, it doesn't look empty anymore.

    Simply put: shove items up the bookshelve's ass.

    Someone's been spending a lot of time on OT! :blushing:
     
  12. You forgot to say take out the innards. The turkey isnt empty. The neck etc are packed in a pouch and left in. Some people cook them. Im just saying.

    Actually yes. One fellow has slipped in that you might even like. He brushed the initiation off like a seasoned pro.

    you spent 900k on a bookshelf token without even knowing what it was?

    Are you implying this bookshelf can be cooked? Is this why it was 900K?

    I'm sure she knew what it was, just wasn't familiar with the mechanics of it. I mean, why would an regular empty bookshelf come in the form of a token?
     
  20. Well I knew it was a bookshelf.

    The halloween event was good to me. Im just give out some spreading around gold.
     
  21. BINGO. Just asking for a little direction. Tuff crowd today.

    Seen those sort of prices on Europa for the 'Academic Bookcase' - craftable that works the same way as the token bookcase, but needs a stupidly rare ingredient to make.

    Ok, just to follow up here. I got a turkey and shoved one of my old college books in it (a good use for an old lithography book, btw), and it certainly doesn't look empty. So the analogy is a pretty sound one.

    However, the turkey doesn't look very happy either. But I suppose if the bookshelf gives the same bloodcurdling shreak as the turkey did when I put the book into it, I'd probably pay 900K for it too.

    kk, it's time to start a service where you can book turkeys, right?

    And as long as you don't shove the whole bookcase up the turkeys ass .....

  38. FYI

    If you put something in the bookshelf it automatically turns to a filled bookshelf.

    Looks cool.

    Don't put anything into it. Page a GM and lets see how much they really know. :thumbup: I think someone needs to write a really long post on how the mechanics of the bookcase should be changed. So it is not as confusing to those who buy the bookcase. Then we can all argue the point.
