    I'm having bidder's remorse on a listing for three bent pipes. The description from the seller:

    This is a lot of 3 nice bent sandblast pipes. The lot includes:

    Dr. Grabow Omega – lightly smoked, minimal bite marks
    Pipe by Paul – lightly smoked, carved bowl, minimal bite marks
    Unknown – lightly smoked, minimal bite marks

    All of the pipes are in good smoking condition.

    They sound like good pipes for a steal. The only reason for my remorse is that I was just saying yesterday that I'm going to try to be content with my collection and not buy any more pipes for a while... then a friend texted me this link and PAD struck.

    Outbid me to save me from myself! I realize it's not much money; I'm just trying to make up for an impulsive lack of self-control. It's the concept, not the cost. Current bid is just $8.50; ends in a few hours: http://r.ebay.com/jkw5lI

    They'll look good in your collection.

    I'd like to help, but I'm saving up for a bite-mark-free pipe for Father's Day.

    You want to transfer your addiction to us? Those are great-looking pipes. Maybe pick another day to test your resolve and iron will.

    $8.50 isn't much to let ride. I think you'll be fine!

    EDIT: BTW, that Omega with the blast instead of the current, "termite tracks" Grabow rustication is worth the $8.50 by itself.

    Try as you will, PAD will have its way. But if $8.50 holds, you did pretty well.

    I was just thinking that I could test his PAD resolve to not buy and up his bid 50 cents!

    Wasn't me, I don't want anyone to recover from PAD before I do.
