Good and Bad in Gaming

Gaming is one of the biggest hobbies and even careers in the world. People play games for fun or learning while others record videos about the games. In this article, I will focus more on gaming itself and not so much the side of how to make gaming videos. Gamers come in all different ages, genders, religions, locations and shapes. The backgrounds of people who are gamers make gaming that much more fun.

Backgrounds of gamers can play a part in the type of games that people play. There are all kinds of combinations for different categories relating to the type of games and type of gamers. You really need to look at the game’s website to get all the pertinent information prior to buying.

There are many online platforms where you can buy games from such as Steam or Humble Bundle. Those sites will give you the description, videos by the company, pictures, user and non-user tags, reviews, website, company and their social account(s). Be aware the game’s website might not show you everything you need to know. As a minimum, a gaming company will show a short sales pitch description, small amount of pictures (5 at best), one or two videos by them and their social accounts. The most they will provide is an informative description, their social accounts, user reviews and videos by them.

Let’s dive right into what is perceived as negative about gaming. The majority of the negative things about games come from the real-life people on those games, the type of games and the types of games for the wrong person. A game can be poorly made but it’s not always the case where the game itself is bad. It could be where it was the wrong type of game for the wrong person. This is where the categories come in. Maybe a game has a bit of violence. That doesn’t make it bad; it just makes it the wrong type of game for a seven year old. Or maybe you bought a puzzle game for a person who loves action type games. So the action loving person won’t enjoy it, but that doesn’t make the puzzle game bad!

The types of games are endless from nudity, drugs and alcohol, horror, gambling with money and more. These different types are wrong for youth gamers as well as wrong for people who don’t like seeing such things.

Gaming has good and bad sides just like everything else. The key is how good and bad are those sides. For example, some games have a bad side with players that like to fight a lot. This is common in games. Understand for a lot of gamers this is not a big deal; however, for youth who are new to the game or even gaming in general this can be frustrating. There are times when you want to avoid the bad sides all together. There are times when the good outweighs the bad. If this happens and there are no problems with the game itself; then the bad side is just that one little fly in your room which is no big deal. Caution: If the bad outweighs the good, I would strongly recommend avoiding that game.

Another aspect that people will nag a game developer or creator about is representation. Should I say, a lack of representation which is not limited to race, body type and message in the game. If you are able to customize your character, then of course you will not have a problem with representation. There is a problem in some games where they don’t represent strong and smart females, minority females and males, big, small, tall, and short females and males. Notice how I didn’t put “males” after female for strong? That’s because males in games are ALWAYS represented as strong and smart.

In games that show a male strong and smart, he will mostly likely be white, tall, thin, movie star looking and buff. You will rarely see him be a minority, short, chubby, not buff, nerdy looking, while still being strong and smart. You see this even LESS for females. Some females in games are also white, tall, thin and strong while showing skin like no tomorrow. You only see THESE females in MMORPG games (Massively Multiplayer online Role Playing Game) though. RPG games are meant for fantasy worlds where you mostly fight people and monsters. Of course the females’ stats will be strong but they won’t look strong.

In most games, when they add a character for you to play they always add a white male first, then a white female, then a black male, and then a black female. They don’t even really add people who are mixes of races or in between. When it comes to the black characters they only add one shade of “black” or “African American” and not every black person on earth is that shade.

In games, the majority of the characters are always thin and tall. You don’t really see characters that are short and thin, tall and chubby, short and chubby, etc. There are a lot of people who aren’t thin and who aren’t tall.

Then lastly, there is the mental message that goes with the gender, race, and body type. What do I mean by the mental message? Some games send an indirect message about that character being strong and smart or something else. While for other games it can be a mental message either on purpose or not. For example, in the game you play and you see a minority female who is short, chubby, nerdy looking and her traits are to be a goof ball, naive, and dumb. It could send a mental message to you that people that look like her are just like her. They’re not smart, they aren’t thin, and are not tall. They did poorly in school, etc. etc. So you start thinking those things based on not only seeing this in that game over and over again, but when it happens in other games too.

The worst part is NONE of these things are true. Yes, some people aren’t thin, tall, and maybe not that bright; but not EVERYONE is like this! You do have short chubby minorities who are smart as all get out! You have all kinds of combinations of people who ARE smart! Of course, all these things about gender, race, body type, and messages aren’t just in gaming; they’re in movies, TV shows, ads, etc. What’s interesting is that some of the creators who make the games, movies, TV shows, ads, etc., are minorities themselves and they make up the population of the earth. (Search “world population by race 2016” and click the first three links if you don’t believe me.)

Quick disclaimer: I AM NOT BASHING ANYONE! Yes, I was shouting that. This section of the article is telling you what I know, read, hear and experience in gaming.

If you don’t believe me go look at today’s TV shows, movies, ads, and games. A show to look at for good representation is Milo Murphy’s Law. Two games to look at as a reference for good representation are OverWatch and Atlas Reactor. Now in these fields it has gotten better for representation specifically gender, race and just now starting body type (specifically in this order). Some games even add robots and creatures as playable characters to avoid having problems with representation. This removes the problem of users wanting a character to represent their actual or preferred gender, race, or body type because now there is a character most users can agree on. After all, you can’t please everyone.

Alright, now that I ranted and got the bad stuff out of the way; let’s get into the good parts of gaming! You have gamers as young as three years old and as old as 90+! No matter your age, race, gender, religion, culture, or location gaming can be good for anyone. Gaming can not only be fun, but beneficial and educational.

A benefit with gaming is it can help youth have more confidence in themselves and be more social. If they play an online multiplayer game and talk to other players around the world, this can help then get used to talking to other people besides family and they gain confidence in what they’re saying. They can go from an introvert to a social fanatic! It can happen fast or slowly. Even if it’s not a game but a place for gamers, artists, fashion designers, car enthusiast, etc. to chat; it will still help them be more social. Keep in mind though, typing to someone and then voice chatting to someone are two different experiences. Youth can be very social when typing but very shy when voice chatting.

This is how I am. Before I was shy when talking to people I didn’t know whether it was online or offline, now I’ve become more comfortable with it because I know how to handle myself and have confidence in myself. But when it comes to voice chatting online, I’m the quiet person on the chat. Counterproductive right! You might even forget I was in a call with you! Before when the people at the bank said “Hi” I wouldn’t say anything, now I actually respond and say “Hi. How are you?” After that I don’t really expect to talk with them so I’ll be quiet again lol. See what I mean? After socializing, in general, over time you get better at it and become less nervous and more confident in yourself.

Another benefit with gaming is team work. Sometimes in games the only way to win or accomplish a goal is to work with one or more players. In certain games, players are allowed a task can be accomplished with only one player, but it might be harder unless you have more players than yourself. Other times certain tasks can’t be accomplished with one player and need two or more. There are times you make a group with your friends or family to finish the goal. Other times you can make a group with people you didn’t know.

This is where it can get tricky. If it’s a game where you can make a group that’s invite only, you’d just invite your friends or family. You can strategize with them, you’d be more comfortable talking with them, and you’ll all agree to work together. If it’s a game where there is no group system but you can still work with others, aka free for fall, and you can talk with them there may still be a goal that can only be completed with multiple players. Do you have to play with other players you’ve never talked to before if your family and friends can’t join you and you really want to complete this goal?

This isn’t a bad thing though! This is where you not only become more social but you learn how to work with other players you’ve never met before. If you always play with your family and friends you both already know how to work together, how the other thinks, etc. But if it’s someone you’ve never met it can be a little difficult. Me and my brother grew up doing everything together without really having any friends, maybe colleagues and associates but not really friends. So we were very used to knowing what the other wanted or how they played etc. But when we actually got two friends, it was very difficult to agree on many things. So if you play and work with other people now it will be easier later. Me and my brother have improved our skills to work with others.

Another benefit is patience which ties in with team building and socializing. After all, in order to get better at something you not only have to keep doing it but you have to have patience while doing it. There are many times in games where you have to wait. Just like reading is in everything, you have to have patience for everything. In games you always have to wait for something. You need to have patience for finding something, something to finish cooking, something to finish dying, your friends to come back from going afk (Away From Keyboard), the next wave of monsters to come, the next level to open up, etc. etc. I had to have patience when writing this article! So gaming can help you have more patience in gaming and everyday life.

Another benefit is hand and eye coordination. When you’re gaming you have to pay attention to what’s happening on your screen while also pressing your controller or keyboard button to do more things on your screen. If you want to move your character in that game, you have to use your keyboard and mouse or a controller while still looking at your screen. It’s like learning how to type. Most of the time you’re supposed to learn how to type words and sentences while looking at your screen without looking at your keyboard. This same thing applies to gaming. You have to be able to press the needed keys in order to accomplish that thing you’re trying to do while looking at your screen. After all, if you’re pressing your keys but not looking at your screen, how are you going to know if you’re doing it right?

Now, this one is a benefit and educational benefit – memory. Games can help improve your memory. How? Let me tell you. Take what I said above about typing. The people who can look at their screens and type without looking at their keyboard have something called “muscle memory”. When they want to make a certain letter appear on screen they just have to press that key and they don’t have to look at the keyboard because they have press that key so many times they themselves and their muscles remember where that certain key is. You have muscle memory already. Don’t believe me? Take a look at your keyboard right now. You see where all the letters, numbers, and symbols are right? The letters are not in alphabetical order. So whenever you tried to type your name or something on a digital keyboard where the letter were alphabetical; Did you take you longer than usually to type that word and was it weird and confusing? It was. I’ve done it. You know why?

When you type or text to someone you know the word you want to make appear on screen and you remember where the keys are. Maybe you can’t tell them in order if someone asked you but if they asked you to type a word you’d be able to type it because you know where the keys are. For me I know how to spell certain words when I’m typing but maybe not how to spell it verbally. This is because I’m seeing the word being spelled in front of me. Technically when we type to each other we’re spelling out words and then reading them in our mind. But when you speak out loud you don’t see the words you just hear them. Sure, when you read text on screen you hear them in your mind, even right not you hear these words I’m typing, but you don’t verbally hear them and you’re seeing each letter make up that word. When someone spells something wrong you immediately notice it because it’s not spelled right and you read it. When someone speaks something you don’t read any letters, you only hear the word.

So games can help you build up muscle memory and mind memory. If you can store items in game you have to remember where you put it, or if you need a recipe to make something you might remember the recipe, or maybe you remember a detail about something important, or maybe you remember the way through a maze or the way home. Some games are even built just to help improve your memory or the only way to keep progressing is remembering certain facts. My mom can type without looking at the keyboard but struggles with trying to walk in games.

So now let’s get into the educational benefits. One educational benefit is math. Now, the game doesn’t have to have a goal to teach you math in order for it to have math. The point of going to school is to get an education! Not socialize, but you still might make friends. So this applies to all games. The game doesn’t always have to have a goal of J but it might include J. Its goal might be X but it might still have J. In some games you can build houses and use recipes to make items. How big do you want your how to be? 30 blocks X 10 blocks X 60 blocks? Did you understand what I just said? Let me say it differently. 30 blocks on the X axis (left and right on the ground), 10 blocks on the Y axis (up and down on the ground), and 60 blocks on the Z axis (up and down in the air). This is how you’d build a house, using math, in a game called Minecraft. With these coordinates it means your house will be a rectangle with a very tall roof. Let’s use Minecraft again for this next example.

If you want to make 4 swords for example, what do you need? You need wood and iron. How much wood? How much iron? We’ll start with the handle. You need two sticks to make the handle for one sword. One wood log can be turned into four wooden planks, take two and you can then make four wooden sticks. You want to make 4 sword handles. So how many wooden logs do you need? One. For the sword itself it takes two pieces of iron. You want to make 4 swords, so how much iron do you need? Eight. See? Depending on what you’re making and how many of that thing the recipe can call for lots of resources or just a few.

Another educational benefit is problem solving. There are lots of games with puzzles or none but it can still include problem solving. A good game for example is Scribblenauts Unlimited. In this game you go to make different places solving people’s problems to make them happy which gives you an item to cure someone. In order to solve their problems, you have to use adjectives and nouns to solve the problem itself or make something to solve the problem. The best part is you can solve that problem many different ways and no way is the wrong way. Some games even change based on your choices and we call these “paths”. Some paths can change, stay on the same route, or end. So you need to solve each problem the best way otherwise you may choose the wrong path or a path that ends.

Another educational benefit is reaction timing. If you don’t want to die in a certain game your reaction to something could be the deciding fact of your survival or grave. The more you test your reaction timing the faster you will get and soon you’ll be able to react to things quickly. This can come from games with combat like MMORPGs, shooters, and PvP (Player V Player).

You do a lot of these things in games without even knowing it! When you play that game you just have to do A, G, M, and S to do whatever it is you’re trying to do, without knowing in the real world those skills are technically called B, H, N, and T and used in 3, 6, and 9. See? So you just have to get used to applying those skills in the real world.

Some games are better for certain ages or interests. Some games are meant for little kids, some are for teen and young adults, and others are for adults. Then there are games just for people interested in robots, cars, fashion, princesses, ice skating, etc. So the games could have the same benefits, but those benefits might be better for certain people than others.

Some games are being used in schools or college, as tests for robots and even to teach certain topics. I recently got a game that will teach me how to read and write the Japanese characters while surviving in a game world. Some people who don’t speak English now know it enough to talk to English speakers just by playing or watching games in English! If you find someone who knows how to speak, read, or write a little Japanese; ask them if they have watched Anime. Most English speakers know some Japanese because they play or watch Anime things.

So when you see your youth or grandparents playing some games, don’t think it’s bad. It could be helping their memory, problem solving skills, math skills, or they may be learning another language or learning more about a topic.



The Trick to Getting Any Dog to Wear Shoes!

Alright, so your prepared to attempt canine shoes or canine boots on your little one interestingly. Try not to stress, it’s simpler than you might suspect, yet there are a couple of simple tips that will have your little one going dancing instantly!

The main thing we need to do is ensure we get the correct size shoes. By and large most canine’s back feet will be somewhat more modest than their front feet, so it’s essential to get shoes that have a solid match on the front feet. We have discovered that numerous canines LOVE to run from their perspective, and for some more youthful dynamic canines who like to run, you may have to get a couple of socks to help pad and fix the back shoes to keep them on.

Presently, our following stage is to ensure that we put the shoes on cautiously. Never attempt to drive shoes on. Boots or shoes should slide on effectively and cozily. Continuously take as much time as is needed, particularly when you’re initially giving shoes a shot. The exact opposite thing we need to do is get a nail or harmed your children toes in any capacity which could make them terrified of putting them on once more.

We have discovered it’s occasionally simpler to get shoes on your canine for the multiple times with two individuals until you and your canine are utilized to them. In the event that you stand your child up on their back legs and hold them up, it makes it simpler to put their back shoes on with two individuals.

Actually, I like to slide the shoes on at a quarter go to one side or left at that point gradually turn them option to left like you’re turning a screwdriver back and fourth to slide them in quite cozy. This technique permits you to feel the foot sink into place rather than simply pushing them on which in some cases leaves you unsure in the event that they are on as far as possible.

For the most part all boots have zippers to make a tight fit. For some long haired canines, for example, maltese and yorkies, it’s critical to wrap their hair up totally inside the boot and under the tongue with the goal that it doesn’t get trapped in the zipper.

Since we have the shoes on, it’s critical to recall whether your canine has never worn shoes they will feel a little abnormal in them, this is totally ordinary. Additionally, we have discovered that this gets more diligently the more seasoned your canine is. We have put shoes on canines interestingly that were more than 10 years of age, so it’s positively conceivable, yet they frequently take somewhat more to become acclimated to them, you must show restraint toward your children.

The most ideal approach to get your little one to figure out how to stroll in the shoes is through training.

We suggest you try not to give the shoes a shot at home interestingly. Try to divert your canine the first occasion when they wear shoes long enough for them to become accustomed to strolling in them. The most ideal approach to do this is to give shoes a shot interestingly where your canine will need to see individuals, places, or different canines.

We suggest you attempt your little ones shoes on interestingly at a companion’s house, neighbor’s home, family members’ home, or anyplace that your canine will need to see individuals, spots, and things!

In the event that you give your new shoes a shot in your home where your canine is natural, the shoes will be the focal point of their consideration. Your canine will probably stand entirely still, or plunk down and begin to bite on their front paws not realizing what is on their feet.

When you are good to go with your semi recognizable area where your canine needs to go around, put your canine in one corner of the live with their new shoes on and have every other person go to the opposite end, your canine will rapidly figure out how to explore the shoes as they attempt to get to you and your associates. On the off chance that your canine has a most loved treat, presently is an incredible chance to utilize it for additional consolation.

Presently comes the great part. You might need to have a companion with a camcorder prepared on the grounds that you will need to recollect the two or three stages your child takes in their new shoes! We have assisted fit endless canines with new shoes in our retail locations, virtually every canine (counting our own) that has attempted canine shoes on interestingly has had a similar response when they first beginning strolling.

At the point when your canine first begins to walk their front feet will kick out and up like they are dancing or pawing at the air as they attempt to figure out the shoes. The back legs will kick out and up behind them high into the air nearly to the point that you think they will flip over!

As your canine moves around the room you will begin to see that the front legs begin boiling down to ordinary and the back legs will kick out less and less. Before you know it (typically 2-10 minutes) your little one is strolling much the same as would be expected, just now they will actually want to cavort through puddles, over hot black-top, and salted walkways without agonizing over harming their little paws!

We trust that this data will be useful to you shop the huge swath of shoes for canines and when you take a stab at your canine’s first pair of canine boots or shoes. Simply make sure to be delicate putting the shoes on, and be persistent as your canine figures out how to stroll with their new boots!



Brand Advocates & You

When one of my friends was in college he had several friends who were advocates of Converse© sneakers. One evening we were hanging out with our friends, walking through the Legends mall to Dave and Buster’s arcade when he saw the Converse© store and insisted that we go inside so that he could finally get some Converse© sneakers! His friends had always told him how great these sneakers were but there wasn’t any place to buy them in the town where he went to college. So as soon as he had his chance, he remembered that this was something he needed to try. The same friend eventually married one of my best friends and even when I see him now, years later, he is almost always wearing Converse© sneakers. I must admit that he drew me into the brand as well because on my next visit to the store I, an avid stiletto fan, bought three pair of sneakers.

This story perfectly illustrates the effectiveness of brand advocates. Some of this young man’s friends in college were serious Converse© advocates, unpaid of course, and they introduced him to the brand. He, in turn, became a Converse© advocate and introduced me to the brand. I also became a devoted customer of Converse© and have convinced several other people that those sneakers are something that they should have. Converse© has made literally hundreds to thousands of dollars without spending a cent on advertising to any of the customers who spent the money in question. Our chain of advocacy has extended on its own and reached many now devoted customers.

So the point is that brand advocacy is very effective and; therefore, very important. Converse© is a well established brand and already had many devoted customers before any of us even heard about Converse©, let alone before anyone of us became advocates ourselves.

The All-Star Advocates

So how does a start-up company establish brand advocates? Well let’s look more closely at what an advocate actually is.

The advocates in the story were originally just customers of the brand. The original advocates were probably drawn in by some sort of advertising or maybe a promotional deal. They bought the sneakers, wore them, liked them and recommended them to others. So they liked a product? What’s new? There are lots of people who like certain products, but what distinguishes an advocate from just another satisfied customer? Well they obviously like the brand well enough to recommend it to others but they take the recommendation to another level. Much like a salesperson, they actually convince other potential customers that they should buy it and love it! As a satisfied customer, the advocate basically guarantees the potential customer of his or her own satisfaction.

So in answer to the questions, what is an advocate? The answer is an ultimate fan of the product, service or brand who encourages others to become customers of the brand.

Finding Your Advocates

If you know that you need advocates and what they are, the next logical step would be to find your advocates. So how do you do this? Well, to make an example of Converse© again, one of the things that they did was that they created a place for customers to upload pictures of their unique sneakers. How does uploading photos help you find advocates? Well the truth is that the people uploading the photos obviously like their sneakers well enough to spend the time decorating them, taking interesting pictures of them and posting them online. So there is a good chance that these people are already spending their time advocating and Converse© just found them.

Many other companies have photo, video and blog contests. Forums also open up the avenues of communication between you and your customers. These are all great ways for your brand to communicate with customers that they are invited to share their experiences with your brand. Those customers who are most excited about your brand are the ones you should target for advocates. Their enthusiasm for your brand is already built and all they need is something to sustain their enthusiasm which is much easier to do than to build it from the ground up.

You Found Your Advocates! What to Do Now:

Rewarding advocates for their loyalty can be as simple as providing exclusive information, exclusive membership or ability to purchase exclusive products and services. There are several options to pursue when encouraging your advocates to continue to spread the word about your brand.

Some companies offer exclusive forums or website features for qualified members. When Google© started its Gmail service, it was by invitation only. Other similar tactics include offering special codes to get exclusive discounts on products and services. Have you ever heard of loyalty rewards cards? Have you ever received a discount on rent or your next visit to a salon for referring a new customer? Other companies encourage loyal customers to become commission-based representatives. This rewards the advocate with monetary or in some cases product compensation for a job that they were already doing.

Many advocates will be happy with any further interaction that they get with a brand. For instance, if an Apple® advocate were to have the opportunity to meet Steve Jobs, this would probably be motivation enough to continue advocating for the brand. Other advocates may get a lot of motivation from exclusive company news such as product development news, the first notice of upcoming company events, etc.

If You Are In Need of Further Inspiration
Bands are a great example of identifying and utilizing advocates. Band advocates are more than just fans. They buy all of the albums, go to the concerts, buy the band t-shirts and stand in line for hours to meet the band members. Bands also reward their advocates with exclusive track previews, exclusive news, and tour date information for being part of a mailing list or fan base on Facebook©. Some bands even offer pre-sale information for upcoming tours so that their advocates can be the first to get in on the action.

Would you pay $200 to advertise for a company? That’s how much Indianapolis Colts© fan jerseys cost. How often do you see people walking around with a big logo across the back of their sweatshirt or the front of their baseball cap, promoting their favorite sports team? If you ask them about the team whose paraphernalia they happen to be sporting, they would likely give you some sort of speech about how that team is the best in their league. The wonderful thing about most professional sports teams is that not only do they get great advocacy from their advocates, they also don’t have to pay a dime for it. In fact, they actually make money off of their advocates. I have a friend who recently went to a few New York Yankees© games and came home with 20+ Yankee’s stadium plastic beer cups that cost $10/a piece.

With obvious examples in our daily lives, it is easy to see the importance of brand advocates. Imagine how far politicians would get without campaign managers and community volunteers. Where would the New York Yankees© be without their die-hard Yankee fans? Now that you know how to find and encourage the advocates of your brand it is time to take that next step of brand building through advocates.

Property Appreciation

A portion of these key pointers are as per the following:

Occupation development

As Primary positions (those positions that send out items outside of the neighborhood the vehicle creators of Detroit) increment, the requirement for Secondary positions will likewise increment by 2-3 times the quantity of Primary positions. Auxiliary positions offer types of assistance to individuals playing out the Primary positions. Instances of auxiliary positions incorporate the accompanying:

Another part of how to monetarily profit by land contributing is through the formation of income. Despite the fact that there are numerous components that are contemplated that determines your income, basically, it is the measure of cash left over for you after the entirety of the costs have been paid.

The term income is generally connected with properties that you are holding and creating pay from rental units or homes.

Property value is the contrast between the honest evaluation of the property and the amount of the entirety of the advances against the property.

Having value in your property is fundamental to have a pad in the occasion the market displays declining an incentive during the time you are holding the property.

What kinds of vehicles are sold at public automobile auctions?

– Off-lease vehicles, or vehicles returned to a financial institution after their lease has ended, are commonly offered up for bid at public automobile auctions. However, due to the large volume of such vehicles, private auctions tend to feature them more often than not.

– Car rental companies tend to dispose of their cars after some time, since these cars can suffer wear and tear due to constant use. These off-rental vehicles are then sold at public automobile auctions. Because of the care exercised by these companies, such off-rental vehicles will often be in very good condition, and will not have been on the road for more than a year.

– Companies will often replace their company cars or fleet cars after some time, while those that have already been used will be up for bid at public automobile auctions. Compared with the volume of cars from car rental companies, such cars will be of a wider range, and public automobile auctions of such batches will have a large variety of vehicles, from luxury sedans to even a worn out delivery truck.

– Repossessed vehicles are often sold at public automobile auctions because these are the easiest methods by which local banks can still stand to gain from them. Such vehicles, however, may not be in optimum shape, so care must be taken before bidding for them at public automobile auctions.

Before you engage in bidding at public automobile auctions, take note of these facts about such events.

– Some off-lease vehicles may be sold just before the expiration of their factory warranty. Take care when bidding for such vehicles, because you may have little time to spare to have any repairs made.

– Repossessed vehicles can present more a hazard than advantage, especially if the previous owners did not take care of the car. Such vehicles may often earn you more if you sell them to junk shops, as they may not function properly. Moreover, not all previous owners are angels: some may have sabotaged their cars without the dealer knowing, so take extra care when bidding on such cars.
