So I got in late, I had been drinking, was doing a bit of surfing when suddenly I realised what I really needed to make my life complete is another motorcycle. Saw a lovely motorcycle on ebay in the North of England (quite far from Luzern) with a low starting price and I placed a bid, thinking if I get it for that price brilliant, if not, so what? Next morning I'm thinking, I have enough on my plate without having to pick up a bike many hundreds of miles away, never mind all the import process to go through. Also, I bought a new bike last year, and in 2009. What an earth was I thinking! But then I think, it was a very low opening bid. I won't be getting it. But the days are going by and I'm still the only bidder. But I'm also begining to think that my drunk logic wasn't too flawed and I hope it comes in. I do like the randomness of life, even if it's self inflicted.

Did it myself a few months back, woke up next morning and I'd won the bike panicked a bit but it turned out to be a beauty and at a great price. Mrs didn't think so mind! Drunk Ebaying is the way forward!

Bought a CAT D stage 4 VXT that way. Loved it. Im pretty much drunk 24/7, so any eBaying I do is under the influence of masses of alcohol ;)

Yup know it well. On the occasions I have over consumed on booze which thankfully is not a lot over the last five years I have ended up with a Wrangler v8, a Laser 2 boat, numerous items of fishing equipment, many watches and jackets which look cool but never fit me. Give up booze, it always works out cheaper :)

Yep, Friday night + too many Stella's resulted in an early twin headlight FireBlade for me :) It's the bit in the morning when you can't remember actually bidding and then you get the email saying when do you want to pick it up! Cheers, Phil

Oddest thing I won while drunken ebaying was a trumpet from new delhi. Delivery cost a fortune and when I got it I couldn't bring myself to use it.....

I've wanted a trumpet for years!

Stupidest thing Ive ever bought on impulse was probably a lock picking kit. Can't use it for crap.

I also really wanted a Geiger counter but turns out they're incredibly expensive.

I bought a lock picking kit as well and got quite good with it. Was rubbish at re-locking things though. :lol:

The latest thing I got while drunk was a ukelele. B)

That's the best Wikipedia link I've seen in a long time.

Nah I just thought it would be fun to see how radioactive everything in my house is. And perhaps start a leader board of who is my most radioactive visitor...

Kat wasn't keen on the idea.

Mate I'm totally crap at it. So far the only thing I've been able to unlock is one of those tiny security locks on the handle of a uPVC window.

Did manage to relock it though!!
