I haven’t been on Ebay for awhile and decided to check it out again. I almost can’t believe it. The person trying to sell the “Unicycle RARE 6 Foot Chain-Driven. NEW!” is still at it. Again I have to ask, if this particular unicycle (it’s either a Savage or Cyclepro) is so rare, why has he been trying to sell so many of them over the past year? Right now, he’s got a total of six entries on Ebay trying to sell copies of the same uni. It’s almost an insult to…
Rare is a relative term… it depends on what he is comparing it too. The unicycle could be considered rare in comparison to an everyday household items. But, when comparing it to other unicycles, it’s not so rare.
Can you clarify that? Do you mean common sense is rare in comparison to everyday household items? Or common sense is rare when compared to other unicycles? Or do you mean that common sense is a relative term?
I only meant the statement as a dig toward the seller of these “rare” unicycles. Obviously, when compared to the common sense of the general unicycling population, this person’s common sense doesn’t register very high on the meter.
Okay, this is getting a bit forward of where I intended it to go. So I’m going to pull in my reins and head off in another direction.
Well, it’s rarely common, so, yes! Common sense is rare! Such rarified sensitivity as yours should be more common, Klaas. I sense that commonly, people are rarely sensible about common rarities. Just look back at all the threads about the common nonsensical comments that Unicyclists rarely escape, commonly driving them out of their senses.
I would like to award everyone who has posted in this thread +1 because you all have taken the word “ridiculous” to a new level. Congratulations on your +1, and for those that are in doubt, this honestly is a compliment and not sarcasm. I love it…not cooked very well! Ridiculous!
I feel you must be operating on a different semantic wavelength than the rest of us… apparently in your plane of semasiological existence, “ridiculous” is considered to be some kind of compliment. I’ll have you know, and I believe that I can speak for the others in this thread when I say;
We meant it, man!
I mean, where’s your common sense? Obviously, it’s a rarer commodity than I had previously assumed.
Nobody cooks Unicycles!
FYI: Commonly, Unicyclists are extremely sensitive about being called “ridiculous”. We’re sensitive in other ways, too, and hopefully, said sensitivity commonly extends in both directions. So, I hope I haven’t been unduly harsh in my admonitive response to your thoughtless name-calling.
I was merely complimenting your ability to analyze words and their respective meanings. As a unicyclist, I put up with the same derisive outbursts from strangers that you do, and that is not where I was going. Like Sendhair said, “Nobody cooks a unicycle,” because that would be absurd, yet it was mentioned anyway, and that is very commendable because life is too short to allow for absurdities to pass unnoticed.
I.E. “FOR SALE—RARE 6ft. chain driven unicycle”
At any rate, I still maintain my comment was a compliment, and that being said, call me ridiculous any day because being ridiculous is more fun than being “normal.”
