Sounds like (by his numbers) his collection should buy him some quality property- but it will be about 1/5 acre of cesspool. Has he ever been to southern California?

What he lacks in writing skills he doubles in lack of VW value and Real Property sense. I can understand Stephen Hawking's VR software better than this guy's.

Virtually no punctuation, few capital letters, lots of texting abbreviations ("u" "n" "ty" etc.), misspellings ("break," "king pun," "alloys replicas fucshes," "datmys," "luxary," "altinattor"), run-together words ("empisnew tires") and some things that are simply incomprehensible ("iroccs").

My head hurts just looking at it.

I'll even throw in the exclamation and question marks for free!

... sure is a long read -
- is pretty unusual these texting-daze when most everything is kept short and abbreviated. I see people texting, looking at their phone screens, taking phone-pictures, talking on their devices, just constantly - makes me happy, I don't participate.
... at least, the ad does not read, texts only.

Give texting a try and include a pic. Who knows you might change your mind 😀 Every pic I put up here comes from my IPhone, enjoy.
