Chainwaxing or Craigslist WTF?

I found this Craigslist nugget for all waxers.

I'm curious if the seller found any takers for the used $20 chains

It's Craig's List, which is the Jerry Springer of sales venues. Scum and/or idiocy.

Big deal. I pay $125 to get a Brazilian wax for my chain on big race day. Doesn't make it any faster, but it's a much cleaner look.

The guy adds molycoat to the paraffin bath and thinks this will go 400-600 miles before rewax? Not sure how that works, but with the wax goes the moly. It is not deposited in the pivots from what I understand about moly additives for final drives on motorbikes. I could very well be wrong.
