We met at our local ice cream shop to get a napkin and begin our quest.
The day before, Vaibhav shared with Brandon and me a famous TED talk about how Kyle Macdonald played this game called Bigger or Better where he would offer an item to trade for something bigger or better.
If 4Chan is the internet’s asshole, Craigslist is probably the taint. Like, it’s an integral part of the internet, but we’re not really sure what it’s there for and we’re honestly a little creeped out by it.
Of course, we’re all familiar with it (Craigslist, that is) — it’s been around forever — and most of us have ventured on there to find a job, sell a couch, or comb for laughs.
A white male who claims to have “yellow fever” posted a cringeworthy ad on Craigslist Sydney that paints a very problematic picture of how some people view Asians as romantic prospects.
The ad’s title, which reeks of white privilege, states, “Fit white married man with “yellow fever” for Asian woman…steal me! – m4w (Sydney)”
The link of the deplorable advertisement was recently posted on the subreddit /hapas by Reddit user Candle21, who called it as it is: a blatant attempt to lure the particular segment of Asian women who may still be worshiping white males.
It’s no secret that rental prices in the bay area have gotten crazy. People have been forced to come up with creative ways to afford living in SF — including building a pod inside a living room and getting married for a rent controlled apartment.
Now it appears that people are converting their vans into bedrooms to rent out. Check out the craigslist post below:
A 66-year-old man endured a six-and-a-half-year legal battle after he was sued by a man who bought his printer on Craigslist for $40.
Doug Costello, of Ashland, Massachusetts, consequently spent $12,000 in legal fees and was found liable for $30,000 in damages for allegedly selling the broken printer on Craigslist.
A Craigslist user is warning everyone in the Los Angeles area to be wary of a MacBook Pro scammer.
According to the post, the victim agreed to meet in a public place to purchase the brand new MacBook Pro sealed in its box. After the transaction had taken place the buyer attempted to open the box, which led to the woman frantically yelling and returning the money.
One San Francisco woman’s post on Craigslist’s “apartments for rent” section revealed just how far she is willing to go to keep her rent controlled apartment in Nob Hill while she goes away for two years to graduate school.
It goes to show just how precious property (even the kind you don’t really own) is in San Francisco, a city where even nuns who help the homeless struggle to pay ridiculously high rent.
Guy makes epic commercial to sell old car!My buddy Rob’s been trying to sell his car for over a year now, so we made this kinda over-the-top car commercial to see if we can get a few offers on the table! Tag your friend’s that are in the market for a new car… or just need a good laugh 🙂
Looking for something creepy to freak out guests at your holiday dinner? This ‘Living Elf” will do just that for $100 per hour. You might want to schedule your request early though, as he’s really getting popular and might miss out on the opportunity.
Posted on Boston Craigslist this week, the ad offered for the amount says: “I will come to your holiday party dressed as the Elf on the Shelf and sit in any location you assign me while I stare emptily at your guests for the duration of the event.” He also creepily adds private investigation and babysitting in his repertoire of services offered.
Break-ups aren’t often pretty, especially when one partner breaks the ultimate bond of trust by cheating on their significant other. Recent stories making headlines include a wife who destroyed her husband’s expensive ride and a jealous husband who snipped off a homewrecker’s important body part.
An angry wife recently unleashed her wrath on her cheating husband of 15 years on Craigslist, according to Cosmopolitan. The woman wrote a very public open letter addressing the woman, or women, who had an affair with her husband.
For a mere $11,000, you can purchase a used white 1995 BMW 325i convertible with 138,000 miles on it on Craigslist. If the price seems a little steep, that’s because this particular BMW once belonged to the late tech legend Steve Jobs and his wife, Laurene Powell-Jobs.
Jobs owned the convertible between 1995 to 1996 after he had left Apple to work on Next. According to the DMV papers, the title was under his wife’s name.
Getting scammed on Craigslist is never good, but unfortunately, it happens all the time.
