    You either spend waaay too much time on eBay, or have nothing better to do with that time. ;) :p

    eBay has just gotten to the point where it's a joke and nothing more, people will sell and bid on anything and that is just creepy to say the least.

    And the endless bound of human stupidity now has a Mecca and the place is called eBay. :p ;) :)

    Just kidding because it is quite a silly thing to bid on. I wasn't at all serious.

    wow, now i am glad that i stay away from ebay these days, things like this remind me of how bad a place it is. things like this are just pathetic really, i mean the fact that people are actually bidding on these is almost worse than the fact that people put them up for auction.....humanity sure reminds me of how crappy we are sometimes.

    Glasgow lady is pitching it at the wrong time of year .... February is not exactly the most ideal time toy spot 'chest adverts' in Scotland. Shoulda waited for summer.

    I just saw on TV (dont remember which program) where a man auctioned advertising space on his forehead.

    The company that won sells some sort of snoring treatment. They payed $37,000.00 usd for the guy to wear the ad on his forhead for a month.

    They showed video of the guy walking around downtown manhatten.

    :rolleyes:

    I read somewhere that somebody was selling a mobile scud missile launching platform on ebay... Not sure if it's true, but I haven't checked...

    the last funny thing i saw on ebay was an empty plastic fanta bottle, described as rare "because this one is empty, and they are usually full when purchased".

    it made £320, or $600 of your greenbacks...

    wish i still had the link!

    Wonder if it washes off, and how does the company know he is actually doing it are they keeping visual tabs.

    Seems like a new low. Phss :rolleyes:

    In the spirit of things, we should all rent out space on a part of our body. If the entire MacRumors community stands next to each other, you would have a picture/advertisement.

    Can you say, "2.5 GHz G5s for everyone?" :rolleyes: :p :) :D

    Ah you are referring to the Scammer Haven. And the people who just fall prey to them. ;) :)

    Use the money for charity if you have too much. What ever happened to helping others in other countries. :)

    $31 (SOUL) + 15 (S+H) = $46 ROTFLMAO for an empty bottle. I say there is something in the food, water and air where these people reside. :p :D


    Anyone remember the Simpson's eps when Bart sells his soul. ;) :)
