Great Trader- Arbitrator

Discussion in 'Beer Trading Talk & Help' started by ShogoKawada, Mar 14, 2013.

  1. So my main man Arbi came through and hooked me up with a crazy good box based on a past ISO post of mine. I got me some precious Red Chair and some Hopocalypse and some other goodies.

    Dude's killin' it.

    Arbi is taking a BA *vacation* right now, so if you need to reach him for any things and stuff , run it through me and I'll get the word to him.

    Also, you should know that he's "on it" in regards to some pending boxes he had in the works- if you need to finalize any details or chit-chat with the homeboy let me know and we'll work it out.

  6. reported for using classic meme response "reported"

    let's try to keep this a mature friendly environment free from jokes and derision.
     
  7. I have a joke. A beer joke!

    A pirate walks into a bar and orders a beer. The bartender looks down and says "You know that you have a steering wheel in your pants"

    The pirate replies "Arrr, it's drivin' me nuts"

    Remember when you gave up trading?

    That was a *this word moderated* thread.

    Arbitrator, women want to be with him and men want to be him

    Never traded with him but he seems like one of the more level headed ba's out there

    As a pirate, I find this incredibly offensive.
     
  11. I hope he rates this thread to a C average.

    Arbitrator is the man. Solid trader and the master of the C average. Stand up BA.

    Sure I'll pile on. My trade experience with Arbitrator was f-ing fantastic. The agreed upon deal was satisfying for both parties, and the extras were spectacular.

    I need a cigarette.

    I rate to a C average because of Arbitrator and have been accused of hating beer because of it :)

    Cheers!

    Everything is great until you cut off the tip of your finger removing his homewax job on a f'n bottle of Velvet Merlin.

    Arbitrator : the most interesting man in the world " I don't always rate beer, but when I do, I rate to C average" Stay thirsty, my friend.

    It was waxed Pliny for me. And the doctors couldn't save the hand.

    Abitrator is completely disappointing to meet in person by the way. He rates everyone to a C average, too.

    He once had an awkward moment, just to see how it feels.
    His passport requires no picture.
    His shirts never wrinkle.
    He is left-handed and right-handed.
    If he were to mail a letter without postage, it would still get there.
    The police often question him just because they find him interesting
    Cuba imports cigars from him. Mosquitos refuse to bite him purely out of respect. In museums, he is allowed to touch the art.
    He was on bad trader list because he sends nothing to Obama after getting White House Honey Ale from Mr President himself
    He was banned from BA because his likes reach over 1 billion.
    HaveUseenmycellar and Godofthecellar only wish to see his cellar once in their lifetime.

    I stopped going to Arbitrator after the buyout. Shit's totally commercial now.
