Fools and their money
For the price they're asking on ebay, I'd expect his mummified corpse in a Swarovski encrusted display case, not a naff Action Man(TM) with specs.
The Steve Jobs action figure project has been killed, although this time there was no "Oh Wow" moment, and the move was hardly a shocker. The 12in figurine drew much attention when Chinese sculpture maker InIcons announced plans to bring the 'GI Jobs' to retail in February. Unsurprisingly, Apple got rather annoyed about the …
1) You're a star-nosed mole in a laboratory being stimulated to think you're at a computer.
2) If you're not, prove that. Put up or shut up.
3) Try reading what he said.
There's no such thing as unicorns, leprechauns, jabberwockies, dragons, or hell. I base that statement on the level of proof supporting each one, and as a statement that it's incredibly unlikely that any of them exist (I'll leave open a small possibility that they do, but for all intents and purposes that's the definition of saying something doesn't exist). Do you believe in unicorns? Can you prove that? If you can then there's no point discussing anything with you, if you can't and accept that they don't exist (or that the possibility of them existing is infinitesimally small) just apply the same logic to hell. If you want to believe that something exists without any rational reason to do so, go for it, but don't get all offended when people apply the same logic to it as they do to every other imaginary thing in the history of humanity (even in belief-circles it's a bit hit and miss what they believe about hell, and scripturally it's not got the best representation really).
But, if i must...
Whats a star nosed mole got to do with the state of the weather...
Cogito ergo sum.
And the "There's no such thing" line. Thats a pretty definitive statement, but to then admit its "incredibly unlikely" simply proves you doubt your own argument.
And with that, your honour i went back to doing something more interesting.
"we have decided to completely stop the offer, production and sale of the Steve Jobs figurine out of our heartfelt sensitivity to the feelings of the Jobs family."
These guys forgot Rule of Acquisition 162. Or... maybe they remembered Rules 98 and 125. I smell an unreported act.
OK, after the first 10 or 20 articles it wasn't so bad, but are you going to put "oh, wow" into every article about Jobs?
It was one the last things he said, but it's just not that funny. When you sit by the bedside of a dying person they say all kinds of odd things.
Give it a rest
is that there are two auctions, by two different "sellers" yet VERY similiar:
Really hate when poeple do that., its obvious that both are the same person as both accounts seem to sell the same type of items in previous auctions.
the articles of clothing, but give the user a valve control to unpuff Clooney's face.
When I was a kid, I had a Kirk figure and Superman, IIRC. It was kinda funny pressing inward on the ears to change the facial expression when adlibbing dialog for the dolls. But, there was no way to keep the face skinny, and i didn't run any pins or rods thru them with bolts.... Nowadays, someone can manufacture expandable/skinny-capable dolls.
I suppose it wouldn't be PC to make AB dolls, though...
But, from $100 to $2500? WOW! Talk about inflation/markup/profiting/profiteering.... a tidy ROI in any case!
