    Or maybe trying to skew average prices? I see things like that too often to be a simple fat finger.

    Nah, it's a simple error. If you forget your decimal, eBay automatically adds the decimal and 2 zeros at the end. Turning $100 into $10000

    Oh my god. Gotta spoiler this thing. Do not unspoiler if you do not wish to see something listed on eBay that is truly unpleasant. I am serious about this.



    Listing here.

    "you are looking at a real pile of human poop, around 1 pound

    I've always felt we needed a Barf emoticon.

    Brings back bad memories of reading about coprophagy in a Seattle alternative newspaper.

    So, you have to tell us what you were searching for in order to find that listing....

    I was friends with Peter Sotos in Chicago...and I have seen / heard / read / lived a lot of oddball stuff in my years. If that's your thing - great - go do it. But for pure shock value - it's trite and unimpressive.

    So, you must have been reading The Stranger.

    I was looking for something like a Dummies Guide To Craps...because when I go to Vegas that is the only game that has me totally mystified and I'd play it if I knew how. The more I read about it, though, the less intrigued I am - too complicated.

    Yikes! I've never heard of Peter Sotos and had to google him.

    I couldn't even finish American Psycho. I opted to express my displeasure by not reading any more.

    Looks like a non-skid stick on thing that is peeling off.

    How to lose serious money, I found this at .99 with free shipping and won it for $5.83. It is almost going to cost him that much to ship it. Adding the words "Givenchy, Rare, Swarovski"
    would have probably made him another $100. Although I am not getting my hopes up here since this guy has ZERO feedback. Then again, even Spoo started at 0 one day. He was not hatched the Juggernaut he is today.

    Anyone interested in buying a cocodrile polo shirt? Nowhere in the entire listing is the word Lacoste

    The sheer number of "Zenga" items is quite staggering

    I think these guys are just exhibitionists who sell these. They always seem to have the item that requires them to pose partially undressed. If you look at his feedback, all of it you can follow is for underwear or swimsuits. I think he is just buying stock...
