Admit it – you have a problem. We, even. Well, the royal we.
We spent hours of the day online looking at the minor and little bits of things other people post for your acknowledgement. But wait, there’s more – this isn’t the mindless swamp we call Farcebook (and Faceslave, Facecrack, Methbook and Crackbook; you poor addicts) nor the fetid wells of insomnia springing from a desperately overheated 24-hour news cycle, but Craigslist.
Do you mean there’s stuff on the web you actually need? Well, need is relative – do you need new drill bits? Sure, why not. Do you need a car part? Possibly. Do you need a custard yellow 1950s range from a teardown in Kensington? Probably not. That said, Craigslist is a great source of near-barter human-to-human (F2F!) exchange that’s sorely lacking these days, and we embrace it (until their mysterious profit motive reveals itself…) because it’s chock-full of awesome car and truck and beer parts. Now, if we could just get them to officially list gun parts, we’d be in business.
Tune in to the November 9 episode of Hank Watson’s Garage Hour for a grand assortment of how-to buy and sell on Craig’s, plus a whole bunch of don’t-dos and Craigslist secrets… 6:PM Saturdays, only on 117)AM (and simulcast on KCBQ.com).
