The auction has six more days to go and it's already up to $2,817.

Oxygenée's still the front runner. In second place is Frenchman Phil! It's the Clash of the Absinthe Titans!

Silly May ends on a very serious note: a TERRIFIC ABSINTHE FOUNTAIN on eBay. I wish I could afford to bid on this one, since it was made for the Latin American market. (Shouldn't it be in Chile?)

Oxygenée: Best of luck in adding the fountain to your collection!

I wonder if that dumb american was actually Henry Miller and he just wrote it was someone else to save face...

ha! brilliant!

there's a scene in "tropic of cancer" where a dumb american is in a brothel and takes a dump in one, in the whore's room, and is chased from the place by a shrieking ho. hilarious.

Kallisti, what a find!

My dad-in-law, from Berlin, tells this story:

An American went to Europe and, upon seeing a bidet, asked: "So, this is where you wash your babies in?"

"No", responded the European lady, "this is where you wash the babies out".

No- but when you do some keg-spiking, keep a journal about it.

Think of it- you could be the best buddy to a frat because of the constant parties you threw, and later a trusted counsellor when they came to you confiding that the ol' soldier was lying down on the job.

That would be pretty depraved. Not to mention a hell of a resume builder.

"blow up a federal building?"

That is ammonium nitrate you are thinking of...

The KNO3 is for a little alchemy kit I am putting together to put on display at my college along with my Agrippa book and some other items of interest.

Like I said, my depravity is shallow...

Yep...ever slip that stuff into the keg of a frat party?

So what are you gonna do with the Potassium Nitrate? Make Crystal Meth, or blow up a federal building? I bet there's another ebay auction where you bought a few hundred pounds of fertilizer you aren't telling us about

For all my interests, I think my depravity is pretty shallow, sorry to disappoint. I would object to the orgy, but not to the collecting of those wonderful 19th century enema devices....

Damn you Justin, as if I didn't fritter away my money on enough things already, you go and introduce me to the world of late 19th C Kabbalistic amulets on vellum.

Justin, have you considered having an orgy? It would be one for the books... absinthe, blood letting, chanting...

LOL, Kallisti, you've just doomed our forumite boys to endless nights of bizarre fantasies.

Great score! Have fun, um, doing whatever

I just made the best ebay killing, so I thought I'd share as I'm all aglow ...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=872107393

it's an old mahogany bidet, but they mis-listed it as a URINAL. I was the only bidder. I've seen 'em in shops, without the lid, in San Francisco for $600.

I'm the happiest girl in the world. Ok, now I'll go gloat privately ...

If I get a chance to go by St-Hyacinthe this summer, I`ll take a look at it and tell you if it`s worth it.
