Re: What's the most absurd seller statement you've heard

While I was walking the docks I met a fellow on his boat. He invited me aboard. While showing me around he mentioned that the boat was for sale. We talked a couple minutes about how long he had it and where he got it when he mentioned. "I was very lucky to get this boat the broker said if I didn't by it he would as it was such a good price".
I said: "Oh was the broker Gxxx Cuuxux"?.
He said: "Yes how did you know"

Lucky guess, I know many of the brokers around here.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
