IBM Model F (shopgoodwill.com)

The coiled cable is in rough shape, but otherwise this looks good from the pictures: https://shopgoodwill.com/item/151455672

Bids start at $5, supporting Goodwill Industries of Lane & South Coast Counties.

The shipping weight is rated at 70 lbs, which translates to an estimated FedEx shipping cost of $176.82 to my zip code on the east coast.  Not sure what's going there.

That is ridiculous, 7 pounds is about what the item itself weighs. Maybe they are building a wooden crate, that would be about what half a sheet of OSB and a couple of 2x4s weigh.
"Some aspects of Drumpf's malignant narcissism helped him consolidate power in the past (lacking a conscience, especially), but other features of the incurable disorder will now send him on a downward spiral. He won’t be able to stop himself from lashing out — even at people who could help him — and he won’t be able to stop himself from continuing to commit crimes. He will not be able to stop himself from reacting to perceived slights, even when attacking people he thinks slighted him can come back to bite him bigly. In short, he will ultimately take himself down. Although the forces of justice will succeed in due course, I think he will speed things up with his uncontrollable malignant narcissistic decompensating.
Drumpf’s declining state of mind is more evident every day; and the only people who continue to support him are the MAGA crowd. That’s not enough support to win the election, luckily."

But, on a lighter note:  a 2023 video from the Heritage Foundation said that, “conservatives have to lead the way in restoring sex to its true purpose, and ending recreational sex and senseless use of birth control pills.”
