    Weirdest thing I saw at a garage sale today

    has to be the set of gel bra inserts to enhance cleavage. I mean, who would buy someone else's bra inserts? Sure they came in the original packaging ... but the packaging was opened Am I wrong? Would anyone else have bought these second hand? I've seen a lot of weird items at garage sales before, but this definitely is in the top 5.

    Anyone else garage sale? What's the weirdest thing you've seen?

    Empty. THe sign did say "Gently Used", though. Apparently, their daughter, the Goth finally grew up and got a real bed.

    I'm pretty sure chipcom would have bought them!
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    In my experience used women's underwear costs more than new women's underwear.

    So how much did you finally give for them? Were they a matched set, or "Betty Ford's"?

    I suppose you could run 'em through the dishwasher to sanitize them; just make sure they say "top rack, dishwasher safe".

    I can probably find a use for those cleavage enhancing bra inserts.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Then Chipcom and I are in the same boat.

    And no, I'm not providing any proof. I'm not starting any fires here on Foo!

    Thrift stores have donated clothes, so I'm guessing you would get somewhere around $0. But that's U.S. dollars.

    I once saw a prosthetic leg at a garage sale. And it was a relatively new model. I could tell from the carbon fiber construction.

    I could not imagine who would buy it, since they are individually fitted to the user.
