    I'm sorry, but I had to share this and prove that the world-at-large has COMPLETELY loss their minds.

    Check out this eBay listing I came across.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/111913567870

    I'm just at a loss.

    PowerMac G5's for $800... HP inkjet printers form 1994 for $79 + $31 shipping.

    eBay has become one overpriced antique store, sculling for the uninformed buyer.

    $2m for a hat though. That's an impressive find. I bet it would be $4m at the Sotheby's auction!

    Apparently a lot of folks don't, it has 70 bids and is now at 3 million! :eek::D:p

    Looking at the bid history is somewhat funny!

    Sounds like it needs to spelt out:

    The bids aren't legit.
    Nobody is going to pay.

    The only original beanie of h3h3productions. Is that supposed to mean something that I don't understand? This auction if not a hoax of somekind, proves having $3m to spend on frivolous things makes one stupid. ;) The second auction is only slightly less stupid.

    Agreed. I think this is about getting publicity.

    Maybe I should have spelled it out..... !

    The listing itself, and the internet reaction to it, is the the art. Just in case anyone missed that.
