Re: Bargain / Discount /Sale retail thread

Re: Any Bubble Optimists out there?

Great, 15 - 1000 years for plastic, now i'll never feel calm because my MOC bubbles can explode at any minute starting from today, or it could be anywhere up to 1000 years, so i'll spend every single day of my life being paranoid :lol: If it said 500 - 1000 years i'd have felt more relaxed :cry: I'...
