Eastern.SkierOh shit, I just saw Laurent.'s comment and those are definitely them. That was a major let down.
Yup. Just as lame as the sunglasses thread from earlier this season.
I have no problem with people buying shit in bulk and marking it up, that's how a business works. I just don't like these kids having nothing to put in, and making a kickstarter for 10k so you can buy wholesale shit and sling it it for triple the price is pretty lame though.
Holding out that maybe, just maybe that isn't true in this case and their grandpa is cranking out some watches but I doubt it. Sounds kind of like OP's friends made up some bullshit story about their grandfather teaching them to make watches to legitimize this whole deal.
Seems like most of the stuff on these crowd funding sites is garbage. So far in the last few years people have posted, an entitled cunt who wanted 50k for an italian bass because her music teacher said "she wouldn't get the parts she wanted with the bass she had", a gaper kid that wanted like 10k for people to buy him the materials to build a tiny house with shitty rails on the side, the sunglasses company, probably some others, and now this.
Fuck my life
