WOW! Over the weekend, I adopted 3 more, one adding to my 'one eyed comet' collection I have going. And the other two, my cousin bought, and made me keep them at MY house...

While it's nice that you are giving these goldfish a second chance, I would advise against purchasing anymore unless you have plans on building a pond or purchasing a 100 gallon plus tank.

I have a shubunkin who is around 7-8 years old and only 6 inches long. This is because he was inappropriately housed in a 15 gallon tank while my dad owned him. He is only half the size he should be because of the stunting caused by a too small tank.

Goldfish are very stoic. It's why they can live in unfiltered bowls for years and years. However, goldfish - particularly commons and comets - really need at least 20 gallons per fish.

Goldfish are a much bigger commitment than people think. If properly cared for they can live longer than a dog or cat. I don't mean to sound like a kill-joy, but I always cringe when someone buys goldfish en masse without considering/realising the housing requirements these fish have.
