Questions from other buyers for this listing
- Q: What is it good for? Answered on 21-Jan-05
- A: Nothing.
- Q: Will I be able to return nothing, if not completely satisfied? Answered on 21-Jan-05
- A: No, because you will receive nothing in the first place.
- Q: The great Buddha stated: “Nothing is permanent”. So does that mean if I win this, I’ll never be able to shift it should the need arise? Answered on 21-Jan-05
- A: Nothing could be further from the truth.
- Q: I’m a bit concerned about your feedback rating of nothing. Will you accept escrow? It’s not lack of trust, just sensible caution. Answered on 21-Jan-05
- A: The answer to this should be obvious. I have no feedback rating, as I have absolutely nothing to sell. My friends say I’m nice though, if that helps.
- Q: i asked my wife if she’d like a diamond ring, she said she’d like nothing better, can you re-assure me that this is the nothing she is referring to? Answered on 21-Jan-05
- A: Nothing is certain, but it seems likely.
- Q: What happens if I win this auction and nothing arrives damaged? Will the GPO accept a written signature for absolutely nothing? Perhaps if you were to not send a sausage then I could confirm that is what I had received…. Answered on 21-Jan-05
- A: If you receive nothing damaged from the Post Office, you should consider yourself very lucky!
- Q: hello, does the Absolutely Nothing also include f*ck all, for free? ta uncle.wilco Answered on 21-Jan-05
- A: Sorry no. This offer includes nothing.
- Q: Hi, You state this is a once in a lifetime deal. Can I assume that this is a special edition? I’d hate not to receive common, general purpose nothing. Thanks CCM Answered on 21-Jan-05
- A: You can assume nothing. Hope this helps.
- Q: Can you confirm that I will not receive feedback were I to win this? This may have some value for me. Answered on 21-Jan-05
- A: You will receive absolutely nothing from me. You may receive something (fame, notoriety, strange looks in the street) as a consequence of bidding, however they will not be from me.
- Q: Could you provide some photos I have always though i had aboslutely nothing already but would appreciate knowing if yours is the same. Answered on 21-Jan-05
- A: Sorry, I have absolutely nothing to take a photograph with.
- Q: I want to bid on this. Can you totally guarantee that if I win the bidding I will receive absolutely nothing? It would be just my luck to pay and then receive *something* Thank you. all_day_breakfast. (I’ve been searching for nothing for a long time now) Answered on 21-Jan-05
- A: Nothing is guaranteed.
- Q: Is the absolutely nothing you are offering new or used? and if it’s the latter how long was it used for and to what end? Regards, Peztone. Answered on 21-Jan-05
- A: It’s pre-owned. I’ve had absolutely nothing for a few years now, and thought it was time to get rid of it. Being nothing, it’s in exactly the same condition as when I first received it.
