Hey man, that car is near and dear to Leedeth as if it were flesh and blood, so have your tailor make him a pair of trousers, er, I mean cut him some slacks. How would you like it if someone said your kid was ugly or stupid? Even if my kid is acting stupid, that's for me to say, not someone else.

You've got to look at the big picture. If he can't sell it for what he thought he could get, it will be a big let-down, but there is nothing to be gained by arguing about it in advance. If he comes crawling back all misty-eyed, he'll have learned a lesson. No sense rubbing it in. If the car sells well, he'll come back and gloat and say "I told you so" and be impossible to live with. Then we'll have to figure out a way to kill him and hide the body forever or make it look like he killed himself. To accomplish either of those two chores requires a lot of planning and work. Did you know that tracking dogs can smell a body 12 feet down? It's hard work to dig a grave more than twice as deep as you are tall.

The bigger issue at hand is that the old Leedeth was a cool guy. Then he discovered 4chan and /b/ and lost touch with reality.

Afaik, he was already on /b/. It has to be something else that caused it. (No, not weed...)

I was a cool guy? ME?

I can't get over that. Nobody's ever said I was a cool guy.

I'm in disbelief. Me...a cool guy.

Why are you saying it like you're leaving? You're not leaving are you?

Dunno how to say no in Japanese or anything although I can say "hello", and "you are an asshole".

the thing is i sold my pos for 220, i bought it (in a diff state, but still) for 600...it had a massive oil leak (kinda like not running on all cylindars, i guess), but he needs to lower his expectations.

But what was your asking price? You could've got way more for it.

Of course I can sell my car for a low price and people will come running to buy it, but do I want to sell it for a low price? No!
