Shrewd seller? no, not really..seems pretty typical, a bit on the high side perhaps, but not outrageously so..
or..what?

I dont understand why this ad is post-worthy..
what am I missing?

I think he just got lost in his own punctuation-less text. Hard to do math when your periods and commas are missing.

Work fascinates me.

oh right..there is traditionally a discount for taking both..

Must be counting on the lack of math skills of potential buyers, or he's factoring in more work involved in handling them both if he delivers them to you.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

or the original assumption, (which I missed,) that it's the seller with a lack of math skills..

that one seems most likely..its probably nothing deliberately planned, its probably just not well thought-out..

Sadly, just another example of how the American education system is lagging behind in the fields of mathematics and the sciences.
