And the conspiracy theorists droan on and on. Bottom line is I hope we did kill him either a while ago or on this raid. I don't care cuz I do believe the world is a better place without some people in it. Not the run of the mill criminals as they should be given due process at trial but criminls like Hitler, Gorman, Saddam, Osama and the like just need killin. It's what the doled out and they should get no less. BTW, Yes I am pro capital punishment.

As a former Vietnam Vet and a consumate patriot and believer in the American way (not necessarly the way any politicians run our country) I firmly believe that we either did kill him and bury him at sea within 24 hrs of his death (which was smart on so many levels) or we captured him and will be interogating him for a long time before he either dies or is put to death. In either scenario we win, they lose. My take is that if we did not capture or kill Bin Laden, his supporters would have him on international LIVE tv just to show the world that he is alive and embarrass the USA. They have not done that because they can't! We either killed or captured him and conspirousy theories be damned. Again, either way, killed or captured we win.

Does anyone really think that if we didn't have him (dead or alive) that the terroists wouldn't flaunt that to the world to further their own agenda and make the USA look bad? If you think they wouldn't you need to come buy a bridge or two from me...........

Good review, bag looks to bulky to me. Just means I'd lug more crap thru an auction than I need. But nice idea anyway.

Now there children, no call for starting up some crap again. Lets all be adults here...........

I wouldnt be without my IPHONE, that said, when your at a storage unit auction when and what the hell do you have time or sight of to look up? You can't see the good stuff 95% of the time, especially the gold silver coins and the like then you only get 60 seconds or so to look from the door so what does anyone see that they then can have or take the time to look up? I use it after I win if I find something of value but there's no time when the auction starts and I have yet to see those gold coins spread out on the floor at the door face up with mint marks and dates showing so I can say wait everybody til I look this up. Just not practical given what you can see and the seconds you have.............After you win and find the goodies its a great tool but not much use before a standard storage unit auction. IMHO

Sounds to me like a good way for you, me, us to get burned paying all the back fees and beting on what's in there then there's the issue that once the back rent is paid up the locker rental and ownership becomes the original owners again. None of the storage facilities have the right to transfer that unit to us until it is vacated by the original tenant ego allowing the original wner to get the good stuff out.......

Hence my way of doing things in my post above. The manager gets back a box of papers and I always remind them I do NOT sell anything back to the former owners and that they are NOT allowed to give out my info to anyone...........I'm a Georgian with a concealed carry permit and if someone shows up on my doorstep threatening my family they will get what they get and my S&W 357, remington 40 or savage sawed off (just legal barrel) will speak for me.

Amen heatman. I'm in Marietta and looking to this as extra retirement income and BTW my wife loves the treasure hunt too!!

Yeah it's funny how they can't make arangments to keep the unit (and most managers will work with you) but then they show up on auction days crying the blue about pictures and papers and family heirlooms. I take all pictures out of the frames and box them up along with personal papers tax returns stuff like that. I tape it up, call the site manager, tell them the boxes are ready and to call the former owners. If they want the stuff I take it to the manager (unannouced cuz I don't want to see the former owner). I leave it with the manager with a unit numer and date I bought it and any names found on paperwork then I leave and I'm done. I've had managers call back days later to tell me the former owner was pissed cuz I kept the picture frames etc. Tough ****. I paid for them I'm selling them at yard sales and flea arkets at 3 for $5.00. Better than wal mart and just as good a choice of frames. Then I get a call from a manager with a lady who wants to buy back her great grandfathers kidney shaped desk. OK so I look at the desk, find the label, its a Stife Lowes made in the late 20's to mid 30's. Cool, research it on the net and they are valued at $1000 and selling between 600 and 800 so I send a message back that I'll sell it for 500. Lady goes balistic on the manager about being robbed and gonna file theft charges etc. So now I drop off pics and papers and refuse to sell anything back to the former owner. No hassles that way. Try to be a nice guy and catch a ration for it. Sorry, pay the bill or I'll buy the goods and they are gone........................

Seems like that when the auctioneer starts off at 50 or 25 If I just jump in at 150 or 200 it immediately scares the newbies (90%) out and thins the bids. Bow what I do when I do that is bump the bid at 50% of what I want to pay for the unit so I still have bidding room. Its a mind game  for the newbits.

Run away fast and far from any auction where you don't win or lose on the spot and get to secure it on the spot. Also, unless you are going to stay at that facility and empty the unit on the spot following the auction, make sure you use a really good virtually uncutable lock (without a grinder). I have heard of lookey loos just following the auctions around to get a look into a unit then come back that night cut the lock and take the goodies out that they saw earlier that day. Ya gotta watch out for number one.

Work at home jobs are mostly scams with a few exceptions. If you are willing to act as a call center customer rep there are companies like Aramark and Live Ops that qualify, train and hire work at home reps. You'd need high speed net access and a voip phone setup. Hours are flexible and you can make a living at it. Usually no benefits though and you are a 1099 er.  Thing to watch out for is if they say you have to pay for their training its a scam. Reputible companies (like Aramark and Live Ops) don't do that, they make you take online tests (free) that look for your education and intellegence level and then they also have phone interviews and test calls (all free) before they certify you to be hired so there is some work involved time wise. Once you get hired you connect to the client network via a VPN or net connect, call into the clients ACD system as a remote agent then sit at home in your shorts taking orders etc. A lot of times they look for people to work odd hours like at night etc which frees your days up for auctions. You ask how do I know these things? Simple, the company I work for manufactures and sells the systems that the whole ACD process runs on and I am the National Sales Director.
