Something Weird, somewhat cheap

Overstock is having a sale on a few Something Weird titles. The following are all $11.75:

Adult Version Of Jekyll And Hyde
Amazing Transplant
Confessions Of A Psycho Cat/ Hot Blooded Woman
Curious Dr. Humpp
Satan In High Heels

I looked up a few others, but none of the ones I wanted were as cheap. If any one finds any other sale titles, please add them.

No, are you? I was updating the thread with correct information. While I appreciate the OP posting the deal, they are not "all $11.75", and I wanted to be sure people seeing this deal would be aware of that without having to do a search at Overstock. So, now that we have established the purpose of my post, what was the purpose of yours?

Just wanted to up my post count!

Actually I was interested in the titles-haven't seen any of these flicks. Any recommendations?

What part of that quote made you think the OP said they were all $11.75?

The part in which he stated they "are all $11.75" could have been phrased more clearly, as I demonstrated. I read his entire post, and believed it was unlikely, based on the last two sentences of his post (one of which you quoted above), that they were all $11.75, but I checked anyway, just to be sure. Upon checking, I discovered, as I suspected, that they were each $11.75, and I posted that information in case anyone else reading the thread was familiar with the English language. Substituting "all" for "each" is a common mistake, but, it is a mistake, nonetheless, and it can cause ambiguity.

I have to admit that for almost one split second I thought it might mean all for $11.75. But it wasn't even one whole second. Hence the split.

On the other hand, I did title this the "Somewhat Cheap" thread, and not the "Jumping Up And Down, Shouting Just F***ing Amazing Cheap" thread.

But, yes, the price is $11.75 each.

I was going to say something about if they were all $11.75 total it would have been called Screaming DVD Deal is Something Weird

I used a combination of common sense plus the English language to figure out what he meant. We can get into a battle of the language but it doesn't hurt to think a little bit about what someone means in addition to looking at the words.

I figured the title would be a little more intense if it was $11.75 for all of them together.

So, has anyone else found and other SW DVD's for $11.75?

Either $11.75 each or a group of five for $11.75, I'll take either.

I have no intention of getting into any sort of battle. I agree that it doesn't hurt to put in a little effort to think about the OP -- I did put in that effort. I was merely trying to help make the deal clearer to anyone reading the thread, and save them the trouble. I never wrote "OMG, so confusing, what the hell does the OP mean??????" I do not feel that my post was at all combative. Do clarity and accuracy really offend you, or are you just trying to pick a fight?
I think we have had enough of this, lets get back to discussing the deal. If you want to get in the last word, help yourself, I promise that I will not respond to your next post unless it actually concerns the deal.

Sorry about that. I had some bad things happen to me yesterday so lots of things sounded like "them's fightin' words".

Well, I know I promised, but it would be rude of me not to accept the apology. Apology accepted, and, for my part in this, I apologize as well. I hope things get better.

The only others I saw for $11.75 (each) that weren't cheaper elsewhere were A Taste of Blood and Rattlers.

Is there an Overstock coupon code available that doesn't require buying bedsheets or a watch to use it?
