    Things happen on ebay never fail to amaze me. This time,
    You can get the full story there. If my major was psychology or anthropology or sociology, ebay will be my phd thesis. To some degree, this auction might need our sympathy. Since so many ridiculous things happened in ebay, i have, sort of, develop a hard and cold attitude towards ebay. i wouldn't suprise if someone is selling his/her own freedom for the money to give the parent(s) proper burial, like what happened in ancient China.

    Just some regular scamming. The one that asks is not stupid, but the one that gives. ;)

    should check their feedback ratings as well, the winning bidder is not necessarily one that'll cough up money anytime soon.

    i am a foreign students studying in an expensive american university. A semester cost me and my family about usd 13000, that's malaysian riggit (RM) around 50000. A can of pepsi in american is usd 1 and in malaysia around RM 1.20. i am saying this to point out that studying in American to get the much needed knowledge for serving the betterment of humankind is a pretty heavy financial load for me and my family.

    May i ask, anyone of you who are likely to die in recent month please send me something of yours. i can supply a child who sees things and afraid of ghost myself. As for the profit of the bidding, as per Chinese tradition, i will buy a lot of sacrifical paper money, paper cars, paper cds, paper mp3 players, etc and burn them to you every year during the ghost festival. In fact, i will tell my children and children's children to continue to do so over many generations so that your soul has unlimited supply of goods and money in the other world. Further, i will use what ever i learnt to benefit first your family than human kind. My major is biophysic.
