Sell

sell

1. To transfer to another for an equivalent; to give up for a valuable consideration; to dispose of in return for something, especially for money. If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor. (Matt. Xix. 21) I am changed; I'll go sell all my land. (Shak)

Sell is corellative to buy, as one party buys what the other sells. It is distinguished usually from exchange or barter, in which one commodity is given for another; whereas in selling the consideration is usually money, or its representative in current notes.

3. To impose upon; to trick; to deceive; to make a fool of; to cheat. To sell one's life dearly, to cause much loss to those who take one's life, as by killing a number of one's assailants. To sell (anything) out, to dispose of it wholly or entirely; as, he had sold out his corn, or his interest in a business.

Origin: OE. Sellen, sillen, AS. Sellan, syllan, to give, to deliver; akin to OS. Sellian, OFries. Sella, OHG. Sellen, Icel. Selja to hand over, to sell, Sw. Salja to sell, Dan. Slge, Goth. Saljan to offer a sacrifice; all from a noun akin to E. Sale. Cf. Sale.

Re: Apology to DNLee

... offense was ridiculous. The apology was welcome. Now, how about Biology Online and other publishers stop taking for free what they turn around and sell? That this clown of an editor thought he could treat anyone this way is incredible. It's sad that no one is offended that the clown's job was to ...

Re: Brain size=IQ level theory (Blacks vs Whites & Asians)

... more and more. People are getting to know Africans more on more. And that's ultimately why bigots who preach this junk have a very, very hard sell. To even suggest that there is a uniform group known as "blacks" whose brains can be measured is the profoundest type of stupidity. Which ...

How can I add a kozak sequence in plasmid pMT/bip/V5-His A

Re: BAP, brassinolide, triacontanol, Amino, kelp foliar question

... ppm. Is this true? Any REAL experts have tried lower purity Triacontanol and have great results? In case you ask, the "experts" are the sellers. I suspect they are pushing me to buy the high purity one because it costs 3 to 6 times higher than the lower purity one. Higher purity one ...
