It's rare to find something genuinely creative on the Internet that has managed to, for the most part, remain hidden. A Facebook post by Kife Wee highlighted just one such instance. In Wee's post, he uploaded a screenshot of a Carousell listing showing a man offering an unbiased second opinion for the very reasonable price of S$5. Here is the screenshot of said listing. Here's the listing on Carousell. The listing was made over a year ago, so the most pressing question would naturally be, are the second opinions still available?

I would consider myself a casual gamer, ever since I graduated from university and began working sometime in 2019. Back in university, I used to play video games more regularly, with more time in between and after classes. My childhood was somewhat filled with games - I started playing console games such as Pokemon at a pretty young age, whenever my relatives would lend me their GameBoys. When I was 10, I started playing PC games too. There was this really popular MMO at the time that everyone was playing, and I was really obsessed with it. Had slimes and mushrooms in it. What it was, I can’t seem to recall. I received my first handheld console when I was 12 -- a Nintendo DS -- after PSLE was over. For a long time, handheld games became my new love, until my NDS stopped working a couple of years ago. These days, I’ve been mostly playing console games on my Nintendo Switch when I’m at home. While it’s technically a handheld console as well, I don’t really bring it ... » Learn More about I was paid to play MapleStoryM for a week, best week at work ever
