Earlier this evening, 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver sent out a basic tweet featuring a Craigslist URL. Turns out the Cully is trying to sell his 2011 Camaro SS. For a mere $37,000, you can own a mildly used car. It has 11,412 miles on it, and seems to be in fairly solid condition.
I'm not living in the Bay Area, and I have no interest in buying a car right now. While some of you might actually be interested in Cully's car, I think I know something more of you will enjoy: Best of Craigslist! If you haven't checked out Best of Craigslist, I highly recommend you spend a few minutes poking around the listings. I guarantee you will find some laugh out loud ads, and also some incredibly bizarre ones.
One of my favorite Best of Craigslist ads was from several years ago, and featured someone looking for a nemesis. The person was looking to spice up their life, and felt a nemesis would do the trick:
I've been trying to think of ways to spice up my life. I'm 35 years old, happily married with two kids and I have a good job in insurance. But somethings missing. I feel like I'm old before my time. I need to inject some excitement into my daily routine through my arm before its too late. I need a challenge, something to get the adrenaline pumping again. An addiction would be nice, but, in short, I need a nemesis. I'm willing to pay $350 up front for you services as an arch enemy over the next six months. Nothing crazy. Steal my parking space, knock my coffee over, trip me when Im running to catch the BART and occasionaly whisper in my ear, "Ahha, we meet again". That kind of thing. Just keep me on my toes. Complacency will be the death of me. You need to have an evil streak and be blessed with innate guile and cunning. You should also be adept at inconsicuous pursuit. Evil laugh preferred. Send me a photo and a brief explanation why you would be a good nemesis.
British accent preferred.
So, head on over to Best of Craigslist and waste a few minutes or hours of your day.
