in thread When another intelligent species appears on Earth, humanity shall

For those not familiar with this one quote, they're standing in front of a giant tree stump w/ litter all around it. And on a related note:

RIMMER: Lister, don't you ever stop and wonder: why are we here? What's the grand purpose?

LISTER: Why does it have to be such a big deal? Why can't it be like, like, human beings are a planetary disease? Like the Earth's got German measles or facial herpes, right? And that's why all of the other planets give us such a wide berth. It's like, "Oh, don't go near Earth! It's got human beings on it, they're contagious!"

RIMMER: So you're saying, Lister, you're an intergalactic, pus-filled cold sore! At last, Lister, we agree on something.

[ambrus]: Corion: that's not true. Actually for Christmas and Thanksgiving, a lot of people buy electronics such as cameras as present, then many of them figure out they don't need it,
[ambrus]: and the electronics gets reselled almost new, but it has to be sold at half price because otherwise everyone chooses to buy the new product which has fewer risk of selling damaged products labelled as almost new.
[ambrus]: You can actually get a lot of useful cheap really almost new products that way, with only a little risk of scams.
[ambrus]: That's what some of the "Black Friday" sales are about.
[Corion]: ambrus: Well, usually, these people don't have in their description "mail me at dodgy_reseller # g m a i l | co m" , replace the "#" by "@" :)
[Corion]: Oh, and the "o" in "com" is a zero
choroba orders a camera from Ole Scæmmer
[ambrus]: Corion: ah. that's different. the ones I mean are selling at reputable sites like ebay that usually filters scammers out pretty quickly (as well as filters a lot of legitimate users who then get annoyed that the biggest providers exclude them)
