dayf the CJ actually seemed to use our useless clues to reach his conclusion that we are going for the 01/99 Pat Neshek rip card. He must have figured out that even though we never said we weren't idiots, that doesn't mean we can't act like idiots and buy the Pat Neshek card instead of like 20 blasters. He must have known that merciless common sense or wise rip card assessments, including his, won't deter happy little wild idiots.
But most of the horror felt by card buffs in regard to rip cards has to do with the word "rip," which is to say, destroy one card to get at another one. Bad idea. Thing is, we intend not to rip it. We like the #1-ness as well as the Neshek-ness. And besides, since dayf is probably right and Mr. Neshek may well corner the market on the other 98, so it's nice to have one. Untouched. PS That Lucy/light clue wasn't so bad after all, eh? Upon, as it were, reflection.
