    Nothing wrong with free stuff.. people eventually give out stuff that are expensive. Just make sure it's not some kind of pedophile waiting for you to go to his house so he can do shit. It was just recently that on the news, there was a girl who was looking for a roommate. She got a call to see the room, so the guy just basically used that excuse to go and kill her. Not to scare you or anything, but just make sure everything's legit. Go in a group if you have to.

    It's 99% likely real, but unless your country flag there is not accurate have you even bothered to see if that guy will ship from NY to Japan? Also have you any clue what the costs shipping live animals add up to be? Might want to look into that.

    Sorry to bust you out on this, but according to your IP address you don't live in either New York or Japan [​IMG]

    p0wned!

    Also, isn't there an age limit for GBAtemp? Ten seems a bit too young.

    You'd think 15 would be too young to be staff but apparently not.

    Lame...advertising for a snake perhaps? Could be using a proxy too. I miss having admin/mod tools or I would have said the same thing about that IP.

    What's to be sorry about? (I notice that the pwnage was too much for it though...)
