Yes. The ABS is sourced from cracked bourbon.

English not your first language?

Visit Dictionary.com's definition of lode and see definition 3. a rich supply or source.

You should search loads too, it's more logical and makes more sense.

I know the definition of "load" and I know "mother load" is not the correct syntax.  A "mother lode" usually refers to great riches or a great supply, which being the case of the eBay auctions presented.

See, here's the Wikipedia article for "mother lode" - meanwhile there is NO Wikipedia article for "mother load".  Why?   Because it's not expression in English that's why.

So now you will be quiet now :pir-grin:

Hehe, I won't be quiet just yet, since wikipedia isn't a reliable source.  :pir-hmpf_bad:

I provided two sources, the other being Dictionary.com.  Argue all you like, I did my best to educate you so if you wish to remain ignorant of the meaning of "mother lode" that is your prerogative.  However, you're not contributing anything useful to this thread, so unless you have a "mother lode" LEGO auction to share I insist you refrain from posting in it again.

Do not understand me wrong and I find it super that ebay-pirate-stuff comes in the spotlight...  :thumbup:
But I wonder myself sometimes, if someone of us really buys something of this ebay-pirate-stuff ?

Respect all Lego bricks !!!

Unfortunately, most fabulous Ebay bargains are only shipped to the USA or UK. And I don't live there... :pir-sceptic:
