Epilogue – Week of January 6th

Does this interaction read like nerd-rage? I hope not, but after I posted it I thought it might.

It wasn’t. But there was some frustration with someone citing The Sunday Paper as evidence. I think all of the entries have been incredibly interesting, but far from creating M.U.S.C.L.E. laws. That was certainly never the point. The entire series kicked off with:


and has


Moving on from that example specifically, critically examine information feels like it is becoming a lost art. And I fear that it is because SOMEONE on the internet has the same opinion or thought. You can post a hyperlink supporting anything. The breakdown is that the sources are often objectively terrible.

Many people, might know, I work in the psychological field. Recently I saw this article in Psychology Today, “A Complete Psychological Analysis of Trump’s Support.” I found it fascinating – and from a good source. Whether you personally agree or disagree – I don’t care. Let’s not talk about it here.

But I do think there are some interesting parallels to things we have seen in the M.U.S.C.L.E. community.

Ok, let’s see how much of eBay I can stomach.
Want to pay $1,200 for a headache?
I wouldn’t pay it, but that box is a nice one.
Still listed. I wonder why?

Oh god; not much.

Last week we had our first AOTW battle and the winner was the AOTW #2 with their 4-pack featuring an opening bid price of $125.

The eBay user named “grandmajosstuff” is selling quite a few M.U.S.C.L.E. figures. And he might be the first person to be nominated three times: (1) AOTW #1 which features a $5 BIN with its hand missing; (2) AOTW #2 which features a small $0.50 Flesh #36 with a $12 BIN; and (3) AOTW #4 which features a larger $0.50 Flesh #36 with a $12 BIN.

The perfect game was broken up by AOTW #3 which features a $6.28 BIN (plus $8.95 shipping) for a badly stained Flesh #93 figure.

Cast your vote and crown this week’s AOTW Fatal-Four Way winner. Here are the four combatants:

    “Does this interaction read like nerd-rage? I hope not, but after I posted it I thought it might.”

    Ehh, your response seemed incredibly fair and reasonable, but then you had to add that line at the end. That’s the only thing that felt like a red flag. Typical Chad stuff, but noticeable.

    Jeez, I hope the first time I ever commented on UofM wasn’t this. What a messed-up start that would be.
