$300 for a dice bracelet. What are the odds they will find someone stupid enough to buy it? Can anyone be that dense and still remember to breathe occasionally?

If it were $30, and a lot less crowded with the dice, I can actually see someone buying it.  But this seller's just gone stupid with greed.  It's a fairly common phenomenon on eBay.

Especially considering they're buying lots like this, drilling holes in the dice, and trying to make well over 1000% profit:

It's a cursed item.

Manacles of Free Will. Not!

Whenever an important decision needs to be made, the wearer of the Manacles must make a numbered list of possible choices. The ultimate decision is then randomly chosen from the list by the Manacles. The only way a person can rid themselves of the Manacles is by selling them on e-Bay for a higher price than what they paid.

Obviously it has changed hands many times.

Not a laughable item description, but a laughable bidder's name on the bidders list here!  (see the $15.13 bid)

eBay.com Item Bid History

Could be a tactic that works out in this person's favor.  Would *you* want to bid against that!?!

Bloodystool - taken
itburnswhenipee - taken

too late I'm afraid guys!

Sadly this is addictive - I've looked at about 50 idiot names and phrases that made me giggle and got about a 95% success rate - you'd be amazed what people call themselves - personal fave so far is 'shillbidder' - oh dear :D

What a genius. "It got you to look" ... yeah, dude, you're really being overwhelmed with bids there. :roll: And the $10 to ship and $3 handling fee is quite the bargain, too.

He probably got the idea from the gold-farming listings for World of Warcraft. Most of those use soft-core pornography for their photos.

I joined in on the question-asking parade, too. Except I was really rude about it. :)
