Perhaps it's so rare that nobody wants to bid on it because they don't know what it is?

Along the lines of the TSR boardgame 'Glixir' that was mentioned here a while ago - do people just not think? (Argh!!)


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Heh.  Actually, I might keep an eye on that.  Bleak House was one of the boxed sets that I lost in a flood at my last house.  Lost me a few choice items, that flood did.  On the other hand, it also got rid of Elminster's Ecologies, which I'm still not sure why I bought in the first place.  So maybe not all bad... ;)

Oh well - that got too pricey too quickly  (seller quoted $26.00 shipping for surface mail, so a bit of a no-brainer there, lol).  A guy from my gaming group went for it (reinbo), but he got sniped right at the end, heh heh.  No spouse this time around :D

That Japanese woman seems to find lignerie quite boring...she looks bored and pissed off.

For $4500 you could at least spell dungeons right.  Even if you are from the French part of Canada.

Seller either was three sheets to the wind when he put that item up, had a stroke while trying to decide which category to put it in, or is six years old.

Ebay should ban sellers for putting up shit listings like this.  No second chances...just send them an email telling them they are too stupid to sell stuff online.

Course if I ran Ebay, I would create a secret police force that would hunt these dumbasses down and put them out of everyone else's misery.  :twisted:

Or he was merely taking eBays suggestions for where to put an item titled "soapbox".
