Want to buy a ghost town with a bar and liquor license? Expand it into a unique getaway! Perhaps the most remote “restaurant” in Northern California. 9.8 acres. The property includes the “town” and the bar and 3 small rundown cabins and the acreage.

craigslist Pets and “Puppy Doe”

September 25, 2013 by

We were saddened and horrified to learn of the pain and suffering inflicted on “Puppy Doe” (Kiya) in Massachusetts.

Based on news coverage, the last owner via craigslist is not a suspect, but we are ready (as always) to assist law enforcement if needed.

Meanwhile a misguided petition wants to ban millions of conscientious CL users from rehoming pets, cruelly dooming countless healthy animals to needless euthanization (no-kill shelters are full).

It misleadingly blames CL for Kiya’s fate, and for the Jeffrey Nally case, where police made clear all victims were found via newspaper ads:

“[Chief Deputy] Murray said Nally gathered dogs by responding to newspaper ads,” including the local “Bargain Hunter.”

morningjournalnews ] [ weirtondailytimes ] (warning, graphic!)

But direct rehoming via classifieds is a solution, not a problem.

Countless pets find good homes on CL, saved from unnecessary euthanization (most pets entering shelters are destroyed ).

In fact, CL “pets” is a primary tool shelter volunteers themselves use to find homes for dogs and cats they would otherwise have to kill.

We at CL love animals (many of us are vegan or vegetarian) and are proud of the overwhelming good CL “pets” does in finding them new loving homes.

Let’s honor Kiya by (1) not breeding so many pets, and (2) taking care when a new home must be found (CL permits a small rehoming fee).

ARRRR! Pirate Ship sells for $80,000 on CL

May 23, 2013 by

As reported on CNN:

Now the buccaneering boat has been sold to the History Channel for $80,000, after being advertised on classifieds website Craigslist.

“It’s probably the most photographed ship on the Mississippi River,” Woodson, from St Louis in Missouri, told CNN.

“We get a lot of kids running along the shore, trying to catch the cannonballs as we go by,” he said, referring to the 4-inch sponge balls shot from the ship.

Atheist Yard Sale

May 11, 2013 by

As reported on Yahoo News:

help get godless liberals out of SC (Greer)

Yes, it is as the title says, come to our moving sale to help two godless liberals get the funds to move to California. What do we have? Books, naturally; some other random stuff that has value but we don’t want to haul across country in our small, fuel efficient car. You’ll be helping to make SC a little more red. Yard sale is FRIDAY MAY 10 starting at 8am and SATURDAY May 11. If it rains on Saturday, like the forecast says, we will also have the moving sale on Sunday, because atheists, remember? Preaching and proselytizing welcome, however it will cost you 10 cents a word to attempt to convert us. Mormons pay double. Mention Richard Dawkins and disavow the Holy Spirit will get you 10% off our already low prices.

Ashes to ashes, CL to CL

The much-admired HemLoft, constructed near Whistler, BC from materials bought on craigslist, may be returning whence it came.

As reported in the Globe and Mail, “Nearly four years after Joel Allen first decided to build a sleek, wooden tree house hidden away on Crown land in a forest near Whistler, the carpenter is taking it down. Within the next week, Mr. Allen will list the dismantled parts of the tree house, called the HemLoft, on Craigslist – the very site where he acquired most of his supplies.

Granted some of us are a little out of shape, but we’re limbering up, tracking down our running shoes, and pounding carbs.

We hope to see some of you along the way (probably from the rear).

From the Bay to Breakers press release:

(April 1, 2013) Bay to Breakers, one of the world’s largest and longest running footraces, today announced San Francisco based craigslist as presenting sponsor. This partnership brings together two Bay Area classics – San Francisco born and bred craigslist, now the world’s leading classified ad service, and Bay to Breakers, the legendary 102-year-old San Francisco running race

“We’re tickled pink to sponsor Bay to Breakers,” said craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster. “A fellow San Francisco institution, this storied footrace celebrates the unique character of our colorful city, drawing fans and participants from around the world.”

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Bay to Breakers to partner with one of the world’s most visited websites and another San Francisco original, craigslist,” said Bay to Breakers Race Director Angela Fang. “We are thrilled to add them as presenting sponsor. As the event moves into its second century, we can’t imagine a better addition to the Bay to Breakers community.”

Coupla Bros Seek CL Wedding Dates

February 20, 2013 by

As reported in New York Magazine:

a_560x375

Dave and Mike had a problem: The bros (in every sense of the word) have been told that they must bring dates to their cousin’s upcoming wedding in order to prevent them from “harassing” the bride’s friends all night.

Asked how their family is going to react to the stunt, one brother [said]: “Out of boredom I tried to convince my dad at Christmas that I’d gone gay now because the lifestyle just suits me better. He was very confused and extremely unamused. I’d imagine he’ll have the same response to this once we just keep repeating, ‘We’ve gone viral, pop.'”
