    I don't understand this!

    I thought it would be funny to post my pacman chip on ebay just for ****s and giggles. I got A LOT of views, but only 3 bids.

    I look around at other auctions, like an empty bubble gum wrapper selling for over $200!! and some guy's hair for over $100!

    Why?

    Maybe I'm on crack, but I personally think that the pack man chip is better then those.

    Just for reference:

    PacMan Chip - http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...tem=5586427159

    Good luck

    Does ebay.com and .ca intertwine inventory? If not, you may want to post it there as well.

    You can list anything on eBay, but nobody will buy it. Note I said "buy" it...they'll bid and not pay, violating their contract as a bidder.

    .com and .ca do connect to each other
    but I listed it on .ca by accident (the sites just look so similar)

    Filburt: Not everyone violates their contract. There are people there who do pay.

    haha yeah
    or just link the gum wrapper auction to a new "used gum" auction and state that I was the man that threw the wrapper on the ground.

    I'll just start selling everything I see now.

    All the stupid things on ebay give it a bad name. I think the people who run the site should make it more serious and ban silly auctions.
