This Ping redesign took 7 years and cost $58 million in taxpayer dollars.

Multiple Copies

Paul is out getting a pedicure, so I’m filling in with the late-in-coming Ping…

With the sheer number of books, CDs, and movies that I have, I’ve done a pretty good job at buying the same item twice. But a few times I have purchased a book at a used book store only to get home and find out that I already had a copy (or, in one case, two copies) of it. And only one time have I purchased a CD that I had ordered from a different place earlier in the week. I later resold that CD on Half.com and didn’t lose any money on the deal. And as far as movies, I ordered the same DVD from two places only once. I gave the duplicate as a gift.

Do you have any items in your collections that you keep purchasing again and again, by accident?

I know that Ryan duplicated his Pinging duties by doing it on sunday and monday.

I own 3 copies of Live's "Throwing Copper." I had lost my copy, bought a new one, lost that one, bought a new one and then found the other two copies.

I had to buy a duplicate copy of Automatic for the People by R.E.M., because the first copy I bought was not functioning properly.

Other than that, I can't say I have bought dupes - except with magazines.

I'm always buying dupes of Hustler. I simply cannot get enough pornography!

speaking of library book sales, Ryan, I think the F'burg one is coming up in April. Hot dang!



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
