    #1 rule of selling your house: Remove/hide all of your personal belongings

    Words escape me on how a homeowner looking to sell their home does this, the photo are safe for work as they were taken off of a real estate website:

    Before You Sell a House, Remove All Dildos

    I love how there is a toilet paper role holder on both the right and left sides of the toilet.

    And on top of the toilet, if you know what I mean...


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    The hawkeye helmet does not help either, or the herky hawk above the toilet.

    I know a couple in Ankeny that was walking through a house in the basement and they saw a storage box on a shelf with a big ***** in it

    You've got two hands...

    My cousin and his wife found an urn in the basement of their new house. You'd think that would be an item the seller would want to be sure is packed-up for the move.

    You never know which hand you'll have free at any give time. I guess.

    On a related note, a friend of mine was recently looking for a roommate for the house he's living in, and one of the pictures of the place he posted online (given to him by his landlord) was of the kitchen, and on a tv in the corner there happened to be a shot of Hitler giving the Heil Hitler salute. Was probably from the History channel or something. It was up for a few days before he noticed, but he didn't get any complaints. Or any responses at all for that matter.

    Re: #1 rule of selling your house: Remove/hide all of your personal belongings

    We went to view a vacant house in Ames a few weeks ago, and we found some college kid living in it. He was laying in a sleeping bag in an upstairs bedroom reading, and my five year old daughter was actually the first one to walk in on him. It scared her pretty badly. It was the fifth house we'd looked at that day and she had gotten used to just walking into all the rooms in the different houses without waiting for us by then.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.
