So my girlfriend is a HUGE Batman fan, and I mean HUGE. Big, big fan.
I wanted to give that preface because I had been trying to think about what to get her for Christmas this year when I had an idea back near the end of October. From our childhood growing up there was a KICK ASS animated series called "Batman: The Animated Series" (catchy title right?)
A number of years ago there had been a special edition box set of the entire series, but it was a limited run and it has since gone out of print.
Why am I telling you all of this? Because I tracked one down on Ebay, with a User that had some good ratings (no negatives at all even). It was listed as Brand New and Sealed so I bought it.
I received the package and saw that it was in fact sealed so I put it aside to wait until I started wrapping Christmas gifts.
Fast forward to tonight, when I pull out the gift and it is still sealed but I now notice that there are tears on the sealing, and the plastic surrounding the package looks and feels A LOT like what we used at Game Stop to seal things up to send back to our HQ (we had a heat sealer/shrink wrap in the back).
So I am now getting concerned and I open it up. This series had 2 books of jewel cases broken up as such, Book One: Volume's 1 & 2 and Book 2: Volume's 3 & 4. The first book of jewel cases was BROKEN and had TAPE on the sides to try and keep it together while the second one had NO tape and was NOT broken (so they cannot claim manufacturer error).
On top of that the Discs on Volume's 1/2 had some noticeable scratches/scuffs, but nothing that should prevent them from being played, but disappointing when it's advertised as "Brand New & Sealed".
What's worse is that I've already left feedback that was positive and Ebay doesn't really let you amend your feedback, they just let you "add on" to it. So this Seller officially got a "Positive" rating but with an amendment. I've escalated to eBay and the seller, but I'm not expecting something to happen, I just felt that they should be punished somehow from eBay for blatantly lying about their listing.
Thought I'd been in love before, but in my heart I wanted more. Seems like all I really was doing was waiting for you - John Lennon/The Beatles
So major they told you about it before it happened!

Not going to lie, I'm hurt by what he said.

Let JB cry in the corner D2M, we can't convince him anymore.
Actually wait, can't you just change positions? Why not play on the wing, do you have to play defense?
I play defense in all sports. I actually don't like playing offense. I like the feeling of being able to watch the whole play open up in front of you.
And football, like all sports advantages certain types of players. It advantages guys who are lighter and quicker, especially on the outside. There is a reason most footballers are like 150-160 pounds.
I world generally like to think that I have decent speed, but my weight naturally sits around 185, and it is hard to match the acceleration and agility of a guy that's like 30.. .40 pounds lighter than you are.
There is a reason I play centre back. Maybe I'll start playing the top of the box on set pieces.
Damn Bricky, the Craptors went another level tonight.
Casey for Coach of the Year? It's like he doesn't realize when the team is about to lose the game. You saw it in the Nuggets game, the same thing happened. They stopped moving the ball and just took awful shots.
