Sod's Law is applying most of all on eBay. Completely independently, two copies of a game I have been wanting for a looooong time (years) have turned up there in the same week - at a time when I have no spare money at all (and am having to borrow to pay my bills), and when it's still a few months to my birthday! This game is pretty damned rare - I've tried all my usual sources without success, and it has come up on eBay maybe three times in all the time I've been looking. Grrr. To add extra annoyance, both vendors are people I've bought from before - one of them sells things at a reasonable price, and the other one sells at ridiculously inflated price. Guess which auction ends first? Grrrrrr.
